Restoration Weekend is a one-of-a-kind 4-day, 3 night, luxury weekend of serenity, reconnection, and personal revival for women who need to “restore” themselves from the many hats they wear as busy wives, mothers, caregivers and career women. Designed for the busy, over-extended woman who often gives more than she takes, the purpose of Restoration Weekend is to educate, empower and restore women as dynamic influences in our society. During this time of restoration, 50 women from all walks of life and various parts of the country, are inspired, uplifted and empowered by industry leaders, events and sessions focused on business, psychology, nutrition, spirituality, finances, and physical maintenance. Restoration Weekend attendees also have the opportunity to participate in Restoring Hope™, a service project to give back to the community, typically involving school aged children.
Restoration Weekend was founded in 2007 by Michelle Hargrove, when she walked through her own journey of restoration after giving birth to a 1 pound premature baby. Restoration Weekend provides a safe place for like-minded women to take off the mask, tear down the walls and rediscover their center.
Restoration Weekend is hosted annually at some of the world's most exclusive luxury resorts, including the Ritz Carlton in St. Thomas, USVI; Grand Velas in Riviera Maya, Mexico; The Sanctuary in Cap Cana, Dominican Republic and African Pride Hotel and Resorts in Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa.
From morning meditation on the beach to customized herStory™ sessions, Restoration Weekend partners with some of the most respected and renown women and men leaders and experts in their fields to challenge attendees to be their personal best. Restoration Weekend speakers have included: Mikki Taylor, Lisa Price, Tony Gaskins, Nicole Ari Parker, Melinda Williams, Sheree Fletcher, Perri "Pebbles" Reid, Mia Wright, Sonia Jackson Myles, Carla Gentry Osorio, Toya Beasley, Sophia A. Nelson, Dee Marshall, Shon Gables, Karen Dupiche, Tymothe Wallace, DeeDee Kelly, Chris Gees, Scott Parker, Sheri Riley, Brandice Daniels and Sybil Amuti.
