The retreat also emphasizes the importance of sisterhood; the idea that “Lemonade Sisters” provide a sympathetic ear was resonant among many attendees. “The camaraderie we shared in a very short time period of time created a very strong bond among us,” the Lemonade Power Retreat attendee explained. “When we left the retreat, each of us was stronger and better equipped to deal with what our ex-husbands would be throwing our way in only a matter of time.”
“Each of us left with a long-awaited sense of peace and renewal,” explained one Lemonade Power Retreat attendee. “As with any trauma in life, unless someone has actually experienced it, the people around them just don’t get it. Each of us who attended were victims of either emotional, physical, sexual or financial abuse. Each of us could relate to something in everyone’s journey.”
The 2018 Lemonade Power Retreat takes place September 21st (4:30pm) -23rd (11:30am) in Sedona, Arizona, and the retreat will feature a host of activities that will help any struggling parent feel like they are standing on more solid ground. Some topics covered at Tina’s retreats include the NPD relationship, custody battle tips and strategies, PTSD and coping strategies, boundaries, communication, documentation, healing and empowerment. Retreats are limited to groups of 20 attendees which allows for each attendee to feel equally heard and supported.
