Grace Trail: Walking Together Towards Hope and Possibility

PLEASE NOTE: In an overabundance of caution in regards to the COVID-19 virus, we have elected to postpone this event.  A new date will be announced at a later time.


We are excited to welcome Anne Barry Jolles: a life coach, author, TEDx speaker, and creator of Grace TrailⓇ. She thrives on working with courageous people wishing to transform the way they live and work and are willing to do what it takes to get there.  Join Anne for a lunch, keynote address and walk on the new Wadsworth Mansion Grace Trail.

Blending life experiences and research, Jolles created the Grace TrailⓇ and has shared it with thousands as it evolved for over a decade. The trail has many forms, including an actual trail in Plymouth, MA, virtual trails, workshops, webinars and retreats.

Her international award-winning, bestselling book “Grace Trail: Find Your Footing and Move Toward The Life You Were Meant To Live” was recommended by Jack Canfield, “Chicken Soup for the Soul” co-creator and is available at major booksellers. She also created and ran Grace Trails for a combined 25,000 participants at the 2015 Massachusetts Conference for Women and 2016 FIGMENT Boston on the Rose Kennedy Greenway.  Her TEDx Talk, “Cracking the Grace Code” debuted at TEDx Wilmington Women in October 2016.


In this keynote presentation and grand unveiling of the Wadsworth Grace Trail, participants will experience the movement and energy of the Grace Trail, a five-step process that begins with gratitude and ends with hope.
Story, humor, metaphor, and strategies will be paired with research and the latest literature on resilience, joy and hope to elevate spirits, educate and enjoy our time together.
The Story of Grace Trail, the stories of others walking Grace Trail worldwide, and lessons gratefully learned by Anne Jolles on the Trail will be shared.
This presentation taps into the wisdom of your head, heart and soul and awakens them all to engage with your best self and the others present for this experience.
Together, we will find our footing, literally and metaphorically, and direct our precious energies in the direction of our choice, hope, and possibility.


What makes this experience different?


This keynote will introduce the Wadsworth community to its new Grace Trail in the most meaningful of ways.  We will set the stage for guests to then head outside and immediately walk their own Grace Trail, getting the most out of this life-changing process.
