Power of Surrender Retreats

Kathleen S. McPhillips will facilitate a three part series of spiritual retreats for women beginning with “The Power of Surrender” on February 16.

“The Power of Surrender Part I will explore how surrender can empower you in life,” says McPhillips. “Surrender is not about giving up or giving in, it’s embracing your vulnerability, accepting yourself, having the courage to change the things you can, accepting what you cannot, and finding peaceful acceptance with what is.”

Kathleen McPhillips’ gift is her open heart as she shares her own life experience with everyone she teaches. With loving kindness she gently guides attendees to look within and “remember your inner beauty, your brilliance, and the gift you are to the world.”

These retreats include easy yoga movement and breath work. Attendees are asked to wear warm, comfortable clothes and bring a journal, pen, yoga mat and meditation cushion/pillow. Chai and refreshments will be served. Attendance at the whole series is recommended but not required.

Kathleen S. McPhillips, RYT is a registered yoga teacher, Reiki Master, author of Adirondack Retreat: My Midlife Journey to Wholeness, retreat facilitator and spiritual guide. When: Saturday, February 16 from noon to 4 p.m.

Location: Get Fit with JaM, 153 Temple Hill Rd., New Windsor. Cost: $65 with pre-registration by February 1. Parts II & III will be discounted with attendance to the whole series. To register, call 914-213-4547, email or visit
