MSP (P) - The Power of "Sisterhood"
Where would you be without your "sisters of different mothers''? Studies affirm that your relationships with women friends align closely with your overall well-being across the lifespan. And the impact of the social isolation that came with Covid accentuates the value of our connection to others. Join in learning "factoids" about the power and importance of women friends. We will explore and celebrate the gifts of these vital relationships, and dabble in a creative card-making activity that you can mail to one of your special "sisters"--stamps included!
Kim’s many adventures and juggling acts personally and professionally have provided a depth and breadth of experience and knowledge that is of great value to her varied clients, retreat participants and audiences. Kim began her long tenure with The Arc Greater Twin Cities and its social enterprise, Arc’s Value Village Thrift Stores, a nonprofit disability advocacy organization, as the Director of Community Services and Eden Wood Camping & Retreat Center. Kim was selected as the CEO of The Arc Greater Twin Cities in 1986, serving in this role for 32 years. She attempted semi-retirement briefly but when asked to serve as the Interim Executive Director for Wilderness Inquiry, a nonprofit that connects people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities to nature and one another, she couldn't resist, serving in this transitional role for two years. Kim launched her Executive, Life and Wellbeing Coaching practice and Women's Wellbeing Retreats in 2019. From the workplace to her coaching and retreats, Kim brings thoughtful, intentional, and creative approaches to those she works with and supports. Her leadership and career achievements have been recognized with the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal 50 Women in Business Award, The Arc National Executive Excellence Award, The Arc National Governmental Affairs Public Policy Fellowship and The University of MN Distinguished Alumni Award. Kim has a B.S. in Therapeutic Recreation from the College of Education at the U of MN, an MA in Training and Development from St. Thomas University and Certification as a Life Coach Practitioner and Organizational Wellbeing from Learning Journeys International Center of Coaching. She lives in Minneapolis with her spouse, has a son in law school and is a native Minnesotan who loves every season, especially fall and winter—bring on the snow!
Kim Keprios, a TTN member since 2019, offers Women's Wellbeing Retreats on a variety of themes that will surely resonate for many of us. "Transitions--Now What?" is coming up October 16-19th on beautiful Burntside Lake outside of Ely, MN. Her retreats bring together curious, nature-loving women with a span of ages and life experiences, resulting in rich discussions, ample laughter and a sense of community that is affirming. Along with presentations, discussions and creative activities that reinforce your work, afternoons are your time for reflection, hiking, paddling the lake, enjoying a massage, reading by the fire, taking a nap...your choice!
