Testimonials

Women Moving Mountains” is simply a brilliant concept and the first year was an amazing experience: it was fun, it was a great workout, and it was a cultural and interpersonal experience that left you wanting more. I met a diverse group of women, we hiked through the desert, ate delicious meals and experienced an evening program that was simultaneously light and thought-provoking. It was obvious that someone had planned and organized everything exquisitely – and from the bottom of her heart.

Women Moving Mountains” was a journey that provided me with the sense of belonging and the sense of meaning which provide joy in life. feeling was that we are all together, that we are all one, that no one is ever truly alone.

It was a short trip but we forged strong bonds, both within the group and with inspiring women from the outside. It included anything and everything – and everything was fantastic.
