Women’s Journey Preparation

Welcome! You’re making your way to the mountain at Spruce Knob, creating space internally with every piece of preparation.

Keep in mind that the preparation process itself is an important part of your Women’s Journey

Please allow yourself time to whole-heartedly give your attention to each part of the preparation process.
