We Move Forward 2018 Program

Say Si and Live Your Best Life!

Be inspired, feed your mind, nurture your body, uplift your soul and Live Your Best Life!  You will experience all of this and more during the 3+ day We Move Forward women’s conference and retreat.  Daily keynote addresses, interactive workshops, choice of movement sessions, and fun socials make-up this “crazy amazing” and “life-affirming experience.”

Each day begins with a tasty tropical breakfast at Hotel Berny with your new friends, followed by a very short morning stroll to the WMF community room at the Casa de La Cultura.  Once there, you will be engaged, entertained and enlightened throughout the day.
