As 2021 begins, what do you long for—for yourself, for others, for the world around you? Who would you love to be? What would you love to create?

The words we choose, and use, not only have the power to heal, uplift, and transform, but also to bring new, life-giving habits, perspectives, and creations into being. At the onset of the new year ahead, give yourself the gift of exploring a smorgasbord of playful, profound writing tools and practices that will support, sustain, and empower your—mind, heart, body, and spirit—whatever dreams and goals you’d love to bring into being.

We’ll meet in community via Zoom for three (3) two-hour sessions of learning, writing, and sharing. We'll also take a peek at what hidden beliefs may be getting in our way.

The Zoom sessions will be from 2:00pm-4:00pm each of the three days:

  • Sunday, January 10 from 2:00p-4:00pm
  • Wednesday, January 13 from 2:00pm-4:00pm
  • Saturday, January 16 from 2:00pm-4:00pm

In between sessions, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the tools and practices to discover which work best and provide the most value for you.

Tap into the power of intention as you learn to deliberately (and imaginatively) shape your best life, whatever the circumstances.

Please register early as this virtual retreat series is limited to 10 participants.
