Cape Charles to host Women’s Wellness Weekend


BY TED SHOCKLEY, Eastern Shore Post —

Cape Charles will host a spring Women’s Wellness Weekend that will focus on topics like self-compassion and body positivity and feature a keynote address by Dr. Michele Davidson, a psychiatric nurse practitioner and author.

The weekend event, set for Friday, April 5, through Sunday, April 7, includes a number of Eastern Shore-based therapists and coaches who specialize in areas ranging from yoga to healing sound.

“The idea came about when a group of the practitioners came together,” said Wendy Hubbard, one of the organizers. Hubbard is a somatic experiencing practitioner, helping people feel safe in their bodies while exploring emotions and memories.

“We hope this will be the first of an annual event,” she said.

The event also will create awareness about the depth and breadth of wellness and healing services on the Eastern Shore.

“There are all these local practitioners,” said Hubbard, who is co-chair with Christa Peachy, a trauma-informed somatic life coach, breathwork facilitator, and meditation teacher.

“No one knows that we offer these wonderful services,” she said.

The Cape Charles event is being marketed at all Virginia Welcome Centers. The wellness weekend’s website,, includes information on pricing, lodging options, and the six paths for attendees to choose.

“We’ve designed them so they would appeal to different people,” said Hubbard.

It is limited to 100 participants and scholarships are available for teachers, first responders, and others by emailing [email protected].

Hubbard said she is excited to have people who have never been to the Eastern Shore or Cape Charles experience the area, shop, and dine.

“We’re really hoping it’s a win-win for everybody,” she said.
