Retreat Reflections 2013

30 Aug

The Fall newsletter is stories from women that attended the Annual BABES Retreat in July. Thank you to the ladies for sharing your stories with us. 34 HIV positive women and 10 staff and volunteers had a great weekend out on Vashon Island. We enjoyed the beautiful weather, some HIV education and self care workshops, karaoke, arts and crafts as well as canoeing! We can’t wait for next year!!

The most inspirational moment for me was the closing circle. We were asked to choose something we wanted to get rid of to throw into an imaginary fire, and to pick something we wanted to take away with us…….. To view the full newsletter click here.
