Weekend getaway planned for women

Sparkling Hill is the setting as life coach Jodi Seery organizes a weekend of pampering and the chance to unwind

Local life coach Jodi Seery and Calgary author and speaker Sue Styles are teaming up to bring balance and rejuvenation to women’s lives with a women’s retreat at Sparkling Hill Resort this fall.

“The Autumn Awakening Retreat at Sparkling Hill Resort is a girlfriends’ getaway for women who do too much,” said Jodi Seery. “We planned the retreat for the weekend of October 4 to 6 just before the Thanksgiving weekend and after the back- to-school rush to give women the opportunity to recover and be rejuvenated for the holiday season, a time when women notoriously do too much.

“In my practice one of the most common struggles women face is life balance. The resulting guilt and exhaustion that comes from trying to do it all takes its toll on women’s health, well being, and relationships. The remedy is self care. While this may seem counterproductive or selfish, it is exactly the opposite. You cannot give what you don’t have. Giving yourself time, attention and care gives you the energy to give the same to your partner, children, family, co-worker and career. The more women look after themselves, the better able they are to look after others, the healthier they will be and the more fulfilling their life and relationships will be.”

The Autumn Awakening Retreat is an opportunity for women to give to themselves. Seery and Styles have arranged for a welcome wine reception Friday evening, decadent breakfasts both mornings, a gourmet lunch Saturday, presentations to renew energy, passion and perspective, access to seven aromatherapy sauna and steam rooms, the Serenity and Tea rooms, the Swarovski Sky, Therapy and Infinity pools, the Keiser-equipped fitness studio and luxury stays in the opulent lake and mountain view rooms with an abundance of free time for women to schedule and take full advantage of the exquisite spa treatments at Sparkling Hill’s exclusive KurSpa.

“We have a phenomenal weekend planned with lots of relaxation and laughter and we are thrilled that we have managed to secure it all at a rate less than just for two nights stay at the resort.”

Today is the last day for special pricing of $399. Full details and registration can be found at JodiSeery.com.
