  • 2019 AMEN Retreat

    Spend some time NEXT YEAR at the beautiful Villa Maria del Mar Retreat House in Santa Cruz with other AMEN women as we enjoy the ocean, fellowship, and time to reflect with Anne Morrow Lindburgh's timeless book A Gift From the Sea along with other relaxing activities. Ample time to walk on the beach will of course be offered throughout the retreat!

    Here are some more details! The retreat will be held on Wednesday, March 27 and Thursday, March 28, 2019. Because not everyone can attend an overnight, there is also an option to attend on Thursday only. The retreat will begin with check in at 4pm on Wednesday. We will start with wine and cheese at 5pm followed by dinner, and then an evening program. Thursday attendees will join us after breakfast and we will have the remainder of the retreat from 9am-4pm. Lunch will be provided.

    The cost of the retreat is $180 for both days (single room, $50 non refundable deposit due at registration, full amount due March 20, 2019), and $80 for Thursday only ($35 nonrefundable deposit due at registration, full amount due March 20, 2019).

    Online registrations will begin in August 2018, but to be put on the list, please email Sarah Bonini.. Currently, we have 10 rooms reserved for the overnight, but more rooms can be reserved if people are interested in the overnight option. Since we have to pay a deposit to the retreat center soon, we would like a tentative count of those interested in each option.
