Family Life Balance

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a PRG? The Personal Renewal Group (PRG) is a circle of women sharing in a collective exploration of how to reclaim, rebalance and reconnect in our lives as mothers, spouses, friends. We have discussions, journal topics/exercises, inner reflections, and much laughter and connection. Together we will explore:

    Strategies and insights for self-renewal
    Ideas on reconnecting with “who you are”
    Meaningful connection with like-minded women

The PRG's were designed to be a year-long journey so have been broken up into two sessions (six months each). You can view the content for each session here.

Who can attend? The  PRG is for any woman or mother who is ready to explore her life, make some positive changes and engage in self-growth! Whether your children are 6 weeks old or 36 years old, all women are welcome! Even if you don’t have children, we all face similar challenges in our lives of finding time to take care of ourselves, finding balance and a sense of inner peace. Together we can ALL share and benefit from the unique power of this women’s group!! 

What if I already have a group of women interested, but we just need a facilitator? If you have a group of at least four women (some ideas include friends from your neighborhood, church, school, work) I'd be happy facilitate that group for you. Facilitation would be similar to how it's stated here.

Are meetings mandatory? Due to the intimate nature of the group, attendance at meetings is strongly encouraged. Of course, schedule conflicts may occur, but you should not miss more than 1 or 2 meetings if at all possible. Attendance at the meetings helps build the group community and strengthen relationships, and will help you get the most from the program.

If I miss too many meetings, can I get a refund? Unfortunately, no refunds are available. Your payment secures your spot that cannot be filled once the group has started.

Can I bring my kids to the meetings? This is a special time for You! Making the investment in yourself and giving yourself the opportunity to be out on your own will be very rewarding. As hard as it may be to leave your little ones at home, this is the time for you. Put all the meeting dates on your calendar now so you can make childcare arrangements in advance. You deserve it!
