"I'm excited to be part of Chrysalis Circle this summer! Empowering girls through nature adventure and learning really helps them embrace their passage into womanhood. Using song, art, and playfulness adds even more to the fun," commented Hackney.

Chrysalis Circle is a dynamic program blending nature adventures with important life skills for adolescents and beyond. The outdoor activities guide young women on a journey to discover and connect to their core being, find their authentic voice, gain confidence and integrate mind, body and spirit. The program integrates activities in nature, creative arts, leadership and communication skills, and time for introspection. Girls meet from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with one overnight on June 21st.

Chrysalis Circle is offered by Women's Empowerment Workshop, founded five years ago by Susie Kincade, a coach, teacher, mentor, and transformational wilderness guide. Kincade raised two daughters and two stepdaughters and is committed to helping girls and women navigate their various transitions in life. Women's Empowerment Workshop empowers women and girls to nourish mind, body and spirit by connecting to the natural world in profoundly enriching, compelling, and transformational ways. WEW's unique and expertly guided nature adventure retreats for girls and women rejuvenate, revitalize and renew personal strength, awareness and confidence.

Cost of Chrysalis Circle is $450 before June 7, and $500 thereafter. Limited scholarships are available and Kincade is offering a $50 "Bring a Friend" discount. The group size is limited to ensure individual attention. For information and registration, contact Susie Kincade 970-328-5472 or visit
