I don’t know about you, but in the last few days, the energy swirling around in my life seems to have really ramped up!

It’s that time of year.  The holidays and the hustle and bustle are really already upon us, even though some of us manage to ignore it all until Friday after Thanksgiving.

Yes.  It can get busy and stressful at the end of the year.  But if we follow the season, we should actually be allowing ourselves to get quiet, review our year and dream about what’s next.

“Yeah, right!” whispers a sarcastic little voice.

Send that voice off to play in the leaves.

Try again in a different voice:  “Yeah, right!” – same words, different attitude.

“Yeah! Right! I’m CHOOSING to live my HELL YES! life and that includes taking time when I need it so that I can return to my everyday life full of myself and with joy to float through the coming months.

Think of crunchy leaves, crisp air, trees, trails,  and creative activities to get you centered and ready not only for the holidays but also for the coming year.  And a fireplace.  With a real wood fire. 

Think of meeting a small community of like-minded women and making new friends.

Think of the opportunity to stop doing doing doing and just be in the moment.

Think of the opportunity to simply be with  a small gathering of women who want to take a breath, drop out long enough to hear themselves think, and return to their everyday world restored and enthusiastic and full of joy – a gathering of women who want to end the year on an upbeat note and start the quickly approaching new year with trust and gratitude (and maybe even a guiding word!)

I’m offering this Retreat in response to an inner urging of my own to slow down and get clear before plunging ahead.  Ever think that yourself?

Here’s the answer to what you called for!

Where:  Westmoreland State Park, Westmoreland Virginia:  rustic cabin with a fireplace, shared with 3 other women who are just like you:  ready to step into their HELL YES! attitude and life.

When:  Friday Nov 16, 4pm to Sunday Nov 18, 10 am

What:  Limited space.  7 Maximum.

Friday night:  Pot luck and Forever Flowers Class, ready to bloom outside all winter through to help you remember who you are and what you really want.  Evening meditation.

Saturday:  Morning meditation. Vision Journaling and making a Taliswoman from found objects to take home with you. Free time to play or read or chat with others.  Evening meditation.

Sunday:  Morning meditation.  Lots of hugs, lots of energy and: Onward!

How:  You drive to Westmoreland and park your car.  You can walk trails or sit by the river.  You can join in the group work or take off by yourself.  You respond to your own inner needs – whatever it takes to rejuvenate yourself so that you are ready for whatever your next step is.
