Cape Cod Retreats

A Little History of Cape Cod Retreats

Joan Anderson’s retreats have been happening for twelve years. During that time women have come from over fifty states as well as Canada, Australia, Japan, Bermuda, and Israel to give themselves a chance to turn their very lives around. The hallmark of these retreats is utilizing nature—finding metaphors for our lives from that which is presented during a contemplative hike on a great barrier beach. The three days are as predictable as the tides and as spontaneous as the changeable weather. The participants work with their intuition and instincts—strengths which have become threadbare because modern women lead such hectic lives and play so many different roles. Most women leave after three days rejuvenated and with new intentions firmly intact—determined to re-arrange their lives in their own images.

    • April I will add you to Joan’s contact list so that you can receive her newsletter. Constant Contact powers the email communications that Joan sends. Many of the Internet Service Providers have increased the filter level of incoming emails. For you to receive Joan’s newsletter you would need to add
      to your “safe senders” list or to your address contact book to prevent it from potentially being filtered as junk or spam.
      Hope to meet you at an upcoming event.

    • Dear Deborah,
      Joan’s next retreat is at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY May 1-3, 2015. You can register on line on the retreat page.
      At this time there aren’t any retreats scheduled for Cape Cod. As soon as there is one I will notify you, and have added you to Joan’s mailing list so you can receive her newsletter which will keep you up to date regarding all the upcoming events. Hope to see you soon.

  5. Was wondering if the trip to Iona in October 2015 is still open? And whether there are any single rooms still available? And when is the closing date to register for the trip? Thanks!

    • Dear Evey,
      Unfortunately the Iona retreat is sold out at this time.
      I will add your name to the waiting list in case there is a cancellation.
      Thank you for your inquiry.

  6. Wanting to know of any one day or weekend retreats in the northeast for 2015. Cannot make the Jan 30th as it is too close. Tha ks

    • Dear Brenda, Thank you for your email. Yes there is a private room available for this retreat. It is an existing new agenda, Stretching Towards Solutions and Resolutions, which is based on Joan’s new book Stretch Marks…
      If you would like to register you can do so on this page. Hope to see you and raise our glasses to the group of amazing Unfinished Women. See you in a couple of weeks.

  7. Is there another Cape Cod retreat this year2014? If not when is the next one. Your books were such an inspiration to this time in my life Joan.
    Do you offer any financial help with the retreats for those who cannot afford to pay this?
    When is the movie coming out?

    • Dear Lisa, Thank you for your email. The next Cape Cod retreat will be January 30-Feb. 1st, 2015. Joan tries to keep the cost of the retreats as low as possible, and has them off season to make them more affordable to the women who are looking to get away for a weekend by the sea. The wheels are turning in California as we continue to make waves for Year By the Sea to come to the big screen. I will add you to the contact list for the announcement regarding all the details for the January retreat, and if I can be of any additional assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.

  8. Please let me know as soon as you set up the dates for 2015 Cape Cod Retreat, I want to come back for a refresher!
    Thanks so much
