how does the pricing work?

The cost per attendee is $700 and includes everything you need once you arrive to Winshape. Two nights' lodging, meals, gift bag, all speaker sessions and breakout groups are included. 

However, we understand that every woman who aligns with the heart of our retreat may not be able to afford the cost of the retreat. That's why we have our uniquely purposed "Pay-What-You-Can" plan where women can select the ticket price that best reflects the means God has provided her.  

Every attendee secures her spot with a $200 nonrefundable payment and will have the chance to pay her remaining balance up to the month prior to the retreat. 

To help offset the cost of the retreat, we have sponsorship opportunities available, our "Send a Sister" program and our gift shop where 50% of each sale goes toward attendees' costs. 


I have dietary restrictions. Can you accommodate my needs?

Yes, we can. WinShape can provide meals to meet most dietary restrictions. Please be sure to note your needs clearly on the registration form


what should I pack?

Our schedule will be rather relaxed so feel free to pack clothes that make you feel the same way. Optional fitness and outdoor amenities like hiking or biking will be available. If you'd like to participate, please pack accordingly. 

Beyond comfy clothes, you may also want to bring your Bible, headphones, favorite journal and writing pen. 


Is this only for women who go to church?

Absolutely not! The event is centered around Jesus, and each speaker will talk about Jesus, because He has so radically changed our lives. But women from inside and outside the church are most definitely welcome.

Our heart is to promote unity amongst women of all backgrounds, centered on the redeeming work of Jesus in our stories. 

If you haven't met Jesus yet, we would love to introduce you
