Retreats for Women Who Want to Learn Together

Are you trying to make sense out of your life's story? Are you curious about the role of the soul in personal development?

Are you tired of asking the big questions alone?

INSIGHT Retreats with Grace McLaren is offering TWO opportunities to deep dive this fall.

Island Getaway

Marco Island, FL
October 24-27


Mountain Retreat

Chambersburg, PA
November 8-10

You’ll stay at lovely Florida vacation homes designed for rest and relaxation at a gorgeous time of year. Soak in the sun while gathering insight that can fortify your soul and deepen your connections. We’ll gather in cozy living rooms with ample space for our conversational sessions and enjoy exquisite walks along the beach at sunset. 


You’ll stay in an 11-bed, 11-bath victorian bed & breakfast in the peaceful Appalachian Valley for a relaxing getaway within easy driving distance of the Washington DC, Philadelphia, and NYC metro areas. Enjoy the changing colors of the fall leaves with breakfast on the wrap around porch.


Gather with a circle of like-minded women for learning, conversation and encouragement. It's our desire to create a retreat environment that feels supportive, generous, gentle and kind, so we can have all the space we need to explore our stories and our own unique ways of approaching the world. 

Gentle Insight


If you are struggling to understand yourself or others, this retreat space is designed to give you a place to learn and process in your own unique way with time to introvert as well as time to share.

Grace is joined by old friend Nancy Vericker, author of Unchained: Our Family's Addiction Mess Is Our Message. Together we'll form a circle where we can ask questions and look for insights in a supportive, facilitated learning environment. 

Too often we look for answers outside ourselves, but what if the answers we're longing for can be found in conversation with others on the same journey?

When we hear something about ourselves that we have never heard before, it feels like a blessing, and it gives power.    --Clarissa Pinkola Estes
