NEW PERSPECTIVES- WOMEN’S DAY ADVENTURES

New Perspectives, a series of women’s day adventures sparked by the Director of NW Women’s Surf Camps direct experience of women learning together in circles, taught and led by women, while in the glory of Nature and its beauty, to put oneself outside of your comfort zone, in order to heal, blossom, grow and THRIVE!
