A Mother’s Heart; A Hero’s Journey

San Juan Islands, WA / 7 days / Sept. 30st – Oct. 6th, 2018

This healing journey is for mothers, who for whatever reason, have found themselves making the nearly impossible and heartbreaking decision to send their child into the care of strangers. This uniquely choreographed journey in the San Juan Islands is a place for you to come just as you are, to rediscover, renew and restore your sense of self and purpose.

Imagine yourself taking a deep breath with a community of women just like you, stepping safely outside your comfort zone to create the change you’ve been longing for. Now imagine paddling a sea kayak, hiking, laughing, and sharing heart to heart with other moms.  You will be surrounded by an ever changing landscape that will refresh and refill those empty places you’ve hidden, avoided and ignored for so long.

This seven day journey will provide an opportunity for transformation, through a nature inspired adventure.  No outdoor experience is needed.  Breakwater Expeditions will take care of everything and teach you everything you need to know every step of the way.
