Friendships Blossom at Soma Ranch

This weekend we're hosting our annual Medicine Woman Retreat. It's a wonderful retreat for nurturing and nourishing the soul. A glance at the guest list fills my heart with joy. Through Soma Ranch and Nia Technique some amazing friendships have been fostered, and this weekend is no exception.

For example Joy Brown (who took the Nia white belt with Helen 20 years ago!), Kathy McElroy (who came to the rescue when Helen and Joe needed someone they could trust to take care of the ranch while they went on vacation), Darlene Parker (a consistent supporter of Joe and Helen at Soma Ranch), Jan Hoff (a host of sold out retreats at Soma Ranch), Peggy Renfroe (who has brought the most folks to Soma Ranch - probably 200+ over the past 9 years!). They have all become great friends and they're all attending Medicine Woman Retreat this weekend!

We're excited to welcome Julie DeJean Marks to Soma Ranch for the first time. Julie and Helen become friends whilst taking their Master's Degree in Exercise Physiology at University of Houston 1990 - 92. They've kept in touch however not seen each other since the early 90s!
