Deaconess Women’s Hospital will host their third Women’s Weekend Away at the New Harmony Inn and Conference Center the first weekend in May. This entertaining event gets Tri-State women out of the daily grind and into a relaxing environment, focusing on self-awareness and rejuvenation. Ladies dedicate three days and two nights to their mothers, daughters, and new and old girlfriends through specialty workshops, presentations, and social events.
Previous Women’s Weekend Away events have been held at the New Harmony Inn and French Lick Resort. This year, more than 100 women will travel back to New Harmony for a Cinco de Mayo-themed kickoff, including crafts, salsa making, and Mexican fare. Saturday and Sunday, local experts — dance and fitness instructors, financial advisors, artists, cupcake decorators, and more — will lead about 30 classes including yoga, self defense, social media navigation, wine tasting, nutrition, meditation, recipe makeovers, and more. New classes available this year are Jewelry Make-and-Take and Elevate your Style with Scarves. Saturday, keynote speaker Judy Carter, author of The Comedy Bible, will discuss, “Get what you want without wasting the best years of your thighs.” Carter’s comedic act has been featured on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” and she empowers audiences with her high-energy and punch-line humor.
Learning new skills, getting motivated, and spending time with gal pals doesn’t allow guests to “worry about getting their kids from point A to B for a weekend,” says Melanie Koressel, community education and wellness coordinator at The Women’s Hospital. “They can take these days to focus on themselves.”
