Who We Are

 

Our mission at Village Well is to cultivate a community whereby radical self love, empowerment, and authentic connection are held in a sacred container. We represent an inclusive mix of  diverse faiths, genders, ethnicities, and socio economic backgrounds.  

We gather with the understanding that each of us holds stories, truth, and light.

Together, we are on a collective quest to become the best version of ourselves:

our Higher Self.

In this community, you are safe.  Your feelings will be witnessed with compassion. 

And you are valued.

Come. Restore. Transform....we have been waiting for you.

I’ll take care of ME for YOU, and YOU take care of YOU for ME

 

Village Well is thrilled to roll out this essential 6 session series with relationship masters, Karla and Richard Obernesser.

 

Married couples retreat facilitators for over twenty years, Karla and Richard have an innate gift for providing both a space for authenticity and laughter in a sacred container. Tom and I have been to countless retreats with this dynamic couple, and one thing is clear: Karla and Richard believe that quality relationships are the key to a fulfilled life.

Just in time to align for the holidays, Village Well is thrilled to collaborate with Empowerment Coach, Nic Kleemann for this 6 week series.

 

After walking through her own burnout , Nic has become passionate about recognizing what is holding us back from saying no to others so that we can say YES to ourselves.

During our time together, we will create awareness about our personal patterns, while exploring thoughts or emotions that may be holding us back. Nic will coach us how to say YES minus the guilt, and from a place that feels comfortable. What a wonderful opportunity to get a kick start on our intentions for 2022.
