Dennyse Harris is a believer of women taking care of themselves.

Because of this, she was inspired to create an opportunity to bring women together and make connections – a chance to provide women an opportunity to connect with each other and to do something many have never taken the time to do before.

Harris is hosting the inaugural 2016 BC retreat of Simply Blossoming – a weekend for women at Strathcona Park Lodge to reconnect with themselves, their mind, body and spirit along with building a strong community of supportive women.

“It’s about providing women the tools that we need, and allowing them the opportunity to create their own toolkit.”

Harris attended a Simply Blossoming event in Ontario in 2014, and was inspired by what she learned.

“It reminded me everyday to try my best, to surround myself with a positive community, and self-love and care.”

From Sept. 30 to Oct. 2, women have the opportunity to participate in four motivational workshops, listen to guest speakers, and have full use of the lodge and park facilities.

Harris explained the weekend is targeted towards any woman “that feels like they need a weekend just for them.

“It’s a chance to be rejuvenated, to rest, to make connections, to network and grow. I want to inspire women, and want them to be inspired.”

Some of the keynote speakers include photographer Karen McKinnon, master hypnotherapist Jeannie Spencer and writer Bevin Clempson.

Because it is in its first year, Harris said she is hoping for feedback from the attendees, as she is looking forward to growing and building on the event year after year.

“I love promoting women and drawing on strengths; I feel like a little kid because I want friends, family and every woman to have access to this.”
