About the Restoration Weekend Experiencewith Michelle Hargrove

The Restoration Weekend Experience with Michelle Hargrove, Restoration Weekend, is a one-of-a-kind 5-day, 4 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, 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.  Attendees also have the opportunity to participate in a Project Restoration™, 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 in St. Thomas, USVI; Riviera Maya, Mexico, Puerto Vallara, Mexico, Cap Cana, Dominican Republic, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, Spain, Italy, Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa.


From morning meditation on the beach to customized herStory™ sessions, the Restoration Weekend Experience with Michelle Hargrove 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.  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.
