Her Experience | A Revolution + Retreat for Women

Her Experience is a gathering of strong women from diverse backgrounds who come together to replenish mind, body, and spirit in a day of reflection, procurement of joy, and outstanding personal and professional opportunities.

It’s an opportunity to refresh, renew, and replenish your soul as we enter spring, and a blank page waiting to be filled with the magic you hold within.

The women who make up the Her Experience team have diverse backgrounds in therapy, yoga, entrepreneurship, personal and career development. This group of women designed a custom retreat to give you time and space to breathe, begin to heal your body, inspire your heart, replenish your spirit, and connect with other creative and authentic women. You can savor a slower, nurturing pace while recharging yourself. You will be introduced to techniques and insight to help you step back into the world stronger, braver, and more connected to the essence of your spirit.

You can be you.

Her Experience integrates 4 components:

  • Tuning into the connection between your mind + body

  • Self-care and self-love

  • Creating your personal manifesto

  • Gaining clarity on your personal brand and what you project to the world.

We start by turning inward to reconnect to our inner genius and wisdom, and then bravely envision how to take this out into the world. Massage and creative projects are bonus additions to this magical day.

Our first event in March 2019 was a beautiful day filled with connections + self reflection. Our next event will be held Friday, June 21st at the Iowa Writers’ House in Iowa City. We warmly welcome you to join us.

We realize that cost is a barrier for some of us. Because of this, we offer scholarships for each event. Please inquire at hello@herexperience.org.

As we develop this event, we welcome community feedback and ideas to make our day better (+ more powerful!)

Stay in touch for announcements for upcoming events and offers.

Andrea Wilson | Writing coach + Storyteller   A visual artist, writer, and storyteller, Andrea believes that creativity and expression define the beauty of the human experience. In early 2014, she moved back to the UNESCO City of Literature to passionately pursue writing, only to feel disconnected from the very literary community that brought her home.  The Iowa Writers’ House  started as an altruistic dream to create a springboard for all of those involved in using art and literature to connect themselves with the world. Today the organization reaches over 3,000 writers, offers workshops and programs in both Iowa City and Des Moines, and has created strategic relationships connecting Iowa with festivals in Puerto Rico, Cuba, and beyond.  @theforeigncitizen andrea@iowawritershouse.com
