“I Am Complete” Women’s Retreat offers women two days of fun, pampering, and sisterhood

Posted on 16 May 2014 by JimLusk

Retreat also helps raise funds for Debbie’s Dream – a non-profit supporting stomach cancer research

IMG_9673- Final FUN Group picDeerfield Beach/Boca–As a woman of many responsibilities, it’s hard to find time for yourself. All day, every day, you are doing something for everyone else and at the end of the day, you have nothing left to give to yourself. It’s time to change that and make yourself a priority at the “I am Complete” Women’s Retreat coming to South Florida May 30th-31st, 2014.

Designed to bring women together as a true community with no obligations, task lists, pressure and judgment and create fun, relaxation, expression and expansion, the “I Am Complete Retreat” is a retreat like no other. It is also intended to give back by supporting Debbie’s Dream Foundation: Curing Stomach Cancer, a non-profit organization focused on finding a cure for stomach cancer. www.debbiesdream.org

Sherry Kane, the creator and the inspiration behind the “I Am Complete Woman™” movement is passionate about working with busy, successful women who are ready to engage in committed and consistent self-care so they live a whole life of personal and professional happiness, health and well-being and by doing so, serve others profoundly.
Sherry started this retreat after going through her own renewal and self-care process.

“I know so much about this topic because I lived it for years.  I was everybody’s beck and call girl.  I love to serve others and am completely devoted to my husband of almost 20 years and our two boys,” said Sherry.  “Add into the mix being a business owner, a dutiful daughter, a reliable friend and a genuine love of helping other people and you’ve got a woman who is stretched way too thin, with too much going on and no time for herself…. I did this for years.”

For Sherry, it was a getaway retreat that greatly impacted her life and that experience was a major “wakeup call” to the fact that “she wasn’t living, she was merely existing”.  As a result, she completely transformed her life and is now creating that for other women who are suffering from that “on-going, over the top, I’m never going to make it existence that’s driving me crazy.”

This women’s retreat is specifically designed to allow you to remove yourself from your daily environment and duties to “run-away” for just a bit so you can embrace the full life you were meant to live.
Get ready to enjoy pampering/massages, spa party experience, yoga session, dance party, entertainment, motivational speakers, learning how to improve your health and wellness and much more.

A successful business owner for over fifteen years, an inspirational speaker and Women’s Prosperity Network (WPN) Broward Chapter Leader, as well as a wife for nearly twenty years and mom of two active boys, Sherry knows firsthand how living a busy life (even one you love!) can cause feelings of being overextended and overwhelmed. Her own journey of rediscovering herself increased her health, focus and productivity and gave her the courage to stop playing small and step into her bigger destiny.

During her two-day retreat, you‘ll experience fun, friendship, relaxation, rejuvenation, pampering, self- empowerment, personal growth and development, as well as strategies to improve your health and vitality. The retreat will show you how to have more joy, balance, productivity and optimism so that you can live serenely and stress-free.

At the event, there will be a special raffle to raise money for Debbie’s Dream Foundation. In addition to helping raise awareness about the non-profit organization and its mission, Sherry wanted to honor a special friend in her journey.

“I chose this charity because it is very close to my heart since the president and founder, Debbie Zelman, is a dear friend of mine that I’ve known for many years,” said Sherry. “I’ve watched her since she was first diagnosed with Stage IV incurable Stomach Cancer over 6 years ago. It is a very powerful story…  She just finished her 105th round of chemo therapy.  When first diagnosed , Debbie was told she only had 3 months to live. My friend Debbie is a strong, powerful woman who is inspiring others all over the world.”

Since Debbie will be undergoing extensive radiation treatment, her mother, Madelyn Zelman, will be sharing her daughter’s story during this event designed to not only reach your heart but increase your energy and focus on strengthening all your relationships, especially that with yourself. The goal is to raise women’s awareness of preventative self-care and maintaining good health on a daily basis before it’s too late.

During the event you will:

  • Learn how to start experiencing more joy daily by implementing simple strategies into your everyday life
  • Uncover why you are running so hard and what you must do to change that to live more serenely
  • Understand what balance means to you and achieve more of it
  • Stay rejuvenated and refreshed no matter what is going on around you at the moment
  • Stop putting self-care at the bottom of your to-do list and instead, feel like a million bucks because you are the priority in your own life (about time, don’t you think?!)
  • Create a bond of sisterhood with other fabulous women so that support, strength and guidance are always available
  • Maintain a high altitude for your mind, body and spirit so that you can handle any situation with energy and enthusiasm

Early bird tickets for the two day retreat are $397 for a Limited Time and include hotel stay for one night, double occupancy, dinner, lunch, breakfast, and snacks (optional upgrade for single occupancy). For more information on the event, or how to register, please contact Sherry Kane, founder of the “I am Complete” Women’s Retreat at 954-324-3840 or sherry@sherrykane.com.
