About We Move Forward

There is one thing we all know for certain, and that is, we have this one life to live.  We Move Forward is for those of you who want to make the most of it – to live your best life!

We Move Forward is a 3+ Day International Women’s Day Conference, Retreat and Celebration that fittingly takes place on Isla Mujeres, The Island of Women, Mexico – just a 17 minute ferry ride from Cancun.  WMF brings good-spirited women together to experience community, insight, inspiration, meaningful connections, and fun.  In its 6th year, WMF is creating waves of positive change, personally, professionally, individually and collectively.

A true Mind ~ Body ~ Soulful experience, each day is a feast of inspirational speakers, group activities, a choice of mindful movement sessions, seaside socials and just plain fun!

As WMF comes to a close, you will have that ‘happy feeling’ that comes with taking a chance, and a trip, to truly live your best life.

One Woman’s Dream

The vision for We Move Forward came to Janeen Halliwell while out for a morning walk on Isla Mujeres in 2011.  She and her mother were there together, grieving the loss of Janeen’s father, her mother’s husband of 55 years.  Janeen saw We Move Forward as the vehicle that would move them through the sadness, and onward to living as her father had – with love in his heart and an acute awareness to live life to its fullest.

Fueled by a life-long passion for learning and the grit to see her dream through, We Move Forward clearly reflects Janeen’s belief that “We are all ordinary women that are capable of extraordinary things.  Taking time out to get clear on our desired future brings us closer to experiencing it.  Believe in yourself and pay attention to those who believe in you too.”

“Ultimately, I created We Move Forward in the hope that it would bring joy into women’s lives.  I plucked out the best bits from conferences and retreats I’ve been involved in, and combined them to make a meaningful and fun experience, ripe with new connections, friendships, learning, and laughter.  The effect WMF is having on women’s lives astounds me.  It has, and continues to spark new and lasting friendships, business partnerships, better health and much happiness.  I am thrilled to say that We Move Forward is now in its 6th year. I invite you to join me, and to be a part of this growing community of good-spirited women.  I encourage you to do this one thing for you in 2018, because if you do I can guarantee you that it won’t stop there, it will be a catalyst for oh so much more to come.”
