Supporting WHRL through the Magic of Monhegan Island

This Monhegan Retreat is open to all women, not just artists!

Join WHRL for Insight and Inspiration: A Women’s Retreat on Monhegan Island. This restorative getaway will provide you with a unique opportunity for respite and adventure, solitude and connection. Hike Monhegan, explore your own creative passions, revel in a community of women, and bask in nature as you’ve never experienced it before. Monhegan provides the perfect setting—a place of magnificent splendor apart from the hustle and bustle of modern life.

This peer-to-peer fundraising event supports WHRL’s Incredible Edible Milbridge program, a local food initiative that provides free produce and garden education to Western Washington County.

Registration is open through February 22nd!

What You Can Expect

You can unwind fully as you immerse yourself in the natural splendor of this magical island. Choose among various optional activities, such as a plein air painting workshop, hiking (from easy to advanced), meditation, guided discussion, island history, and more.  Monhegan is a walking-only island where peace and tranquility prevail. Women will find space for self-nurturing, self-discovery, and the easy friendship and support of like-minded women. It’s a time to focus on you, on nature, on being.

Feedback from Monhegan 2023

I went to see the island.  What I found was a warm and caring group of women– who remain connected.

It was so well planned down to the smallest detail. 

Thanks, WHRL, for this memorable opportunity that will inspire others to support a cause that truly appreciates them for who they are!

This was life changing!
