What an amazing  experience!! I first attended the OYOU Women's Retreat as part of the program, and feel like I probably benefited as much or more than anyone. Knew one person when I got there, left with many new lifelong friends. It's a wonderful place to relax, recharge your spirit, reconnect with yourself, and realize that no matter how diverse we are, we all really connect on some level. Do yourself a favor and attend!!!!  Dana Jones

Calling all ladies ages 25 and up! Need a gal pal getaway? Pack your bags and join us for our 5th Annual Creative Women's Retreat in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. Leave behind your chores, busy lives, and demands on your time. Take time for yourself instead, and embark on a journey of self discovery through a myriad of activities that leave one renewed and refreshed. Revived and restored. Enjoy great food and company. Sip beverages, wine, or toddy's, play and or listen to music, create, write, and more! Escape reality, recharge your battery, and get back to who you really are. 

 

Heads up! This is a women's retreat and we have rented this entire facility for the weekend. We don't allow men, kids, or pets (unless they are a certified service animal). 

 

Our focus for 2019 will be on relaxing and easing tension, music, writing, and singing. We'll have instruments folks can borrow. We'll have teachers on hand to teach. If you'd rather just listen to the jams and kick back and or get your craft on, we'll have a table chock-full of arts and crafts ready for you. 

 

Mission:

The mission of our 501c3, Own Your Own Universe, is to change lives through the power of the creative arts.   Among the many programs provided through the OYOU is the annual Women’s Retreat, now in its 6th successful year.   This transformative weekend retreat is tailored for for women, providing the relaxed setting and creative tools for the 35+ attendees to explore, discuss and manage a myriad of life challenges. Through music, crafts, creative writing, and new friendships, the retreat has been a pivotal and positive turning point for women dealing with serious illness, being a sole care-giver, depression, and for living a better, healthier life.

Testimonials

“Own Your Own Universe - the name says it all! This women’s retreat provides opportunities for personal growth. There are no words I can find that really would adequately describe it. The best way to learn more about the OYOU, is to dip your toe in as a participant and or supporter. Keep up the good work, OYOU. You’re changing lives one at a time, which is changing our world for the better!"

- Dana Jones 

"The spirit that the OYOU brings to its participants creates an environment of growth and learning (about others and ourselves) that stays for a long time. I attended the Women's Retreat and am still feeling filled up with love and compassion. My cup runneth over! I learned so much about myself and am seeing other people through different eyes, and recognizing that we are all part of the same mold regardless of our economic or developmental or mobility differences. I left wanting to pay it forward as much as I possibly can. Thank you OYOU for making the world such a better place! I highly recommend supporting or participating in the OYOU in any way you can. Through giving, we receive so much!"
- Lisa Kay

"We learned from, taught and inspired one another. We are strangers no more, we are family. I smile and am lifted whenever I think of this weekend, and these women. When I am moved by something, i have to share it with THEM now, that new family I have. It was the most soul-enriching weekend I've ever spent in my life and the tears of joy I shed were filled with wonder and magic."
