Do you remember when AIDS was first discovered? Do you remember the stigma attached to the illness and how that stigma created much more pain and devastation than the physical illness itself (as if it weren't bad enough)? Who can forget, actually? The patients... the disregarded... fought like hell to be recognized and respected, treated and researched. No one ever thought AIDS could be successfully treated or that people could live productive lives after diagnosis.... but how wrong that was!
Portals to the Self: A Women’s Circle by the Sea is a powerful, unique retreat and personal growth experience for the dozen or so women lucky enough to join each other and awesome goddess-social workers and facilitators, Ceci McDonnell and Karen Rosenberg, on Isla Mujeres in the gorgeous Caribbean at the tail end of winter.
