The Annual Woman To Woman Workshop Weekend offers recovering alcoholic women opportunities for personal development and productive living through informative meetings and workshops. 

We have moved to UC Santa Barbara, so our location/accommodations have changed. Each bedroom is now part of a three-bedroom apartment that includes two shared bathrooms and a common area.  Each bedroom can be either a single or double room. Bedding, pillows and towels are provided. For a Virtual Tour CLICK HERE.  

The weekend includes six delicious meals with vegan choices available.

Along with plenty of meetings/workshops to choose from, there is plenty of time for “caring and sharing” and getting to know one another.  There are also walking trails, athletic facilities and a large outdoor pool for “sun and fun.”  

All registrants will receive a letter in the mail prior to our retreat weekend.
