Experiencing “Retreats With Heart” on Friday, April 17

Stephanie, me and Margo
Stephanie, me and Margo

When Stephanie Fisher first asked if I’d be interested in leading a retreat with her, I couldn’t have been more excited. Ever since I worked at The Omega Holistic Studies Institute in upstate New York, leading workshops and retreats had been a dream of mine. Then, when she introduced me to Margo Wade Walsh and her beautiful home in Gig Harbor, the dream got even better.

In addition to weekend workshop/retreats, this month we will be launching the first of a four-part series called Enlighten Up. Each of these daylong events will examine two principles of living a peaceful, joyous life and explore various practices to get you there: including journal writing, art, movement, mindfulness and affirmation. And, as always, a delicious and healthy lunch will be served.

If this sounds good, on Friday April 17 at 7:15 p.m., you’ll have the opportunity to experience some of it for yourself during my FREE one-hour introduction to Retreats With Heart at Good Karma Center For Joy in Tacoma.

It’s one thing to read about what we do or see one of our fliers. It’s another thing to spend some time with us in person and get a feel for what it’s really like to work on opening your heart to a greater experience of joy, peace and connection.

Retreats With Heart was founded to serve women and men who seek to be more connected with themselves and others. Whatever your background or faith, we know that the pressures of daily life take their toll on everyone. We also know how valuable it is to slow down, take a look at how you’re living and, where necessary, make new choices that are more in alignment with what you really want.

With decades of experience between us, Stephanie, Margo and I are devoted to sharing our love and wisdom with the world and doing our part to making it one where all people can lead lives of the greatest power, joy and contribution. If this sounds like something you’d like to experience, come check us out.

  • When: Friday, April 17 at 7:15 p.m.

When The Soul Calls

IMG_7428Thomas Moore, one of my favorite contemporary mystics, has this to say about the soul:

It is impossible to define precisely what the soul is, [but] we know intuitively that soul has to do with genuineness and depth, as when we say certain music has soul or a remarkable person is soulful. When you look closely at the image of soulfulness, you see that it is tied to life in all its particulars – good food, satisfying conversation, genuine friends and experiences that stay in the memory and touch the heart. Soul is revealed in attachment, love, and community, as well as in retreat on behalf of inner communing and intimacy. 

He then adds this quote from the Roman philosopher Epicurus:

 It is never too early or late to care for the well-being of the soul.

This is what I can promise for those of you considering my upcoming weekly SOUL CALL. We will reveal our souls. And we will care for them.

We will also reveal what we are doing in our lives that is not in alignment with our souls and how we are denying them their deepest desires. And then, by gently looking at the divide between the two – little by little and occasionally in great leaps – we will close the gap.

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then this call is probably not for you.

But if you are feeling called to grow…

If you’re feeling stuck…

If you’re not getting the support you need to take your life where you want it to go…

Or, if you’ve heard yourself say, “I’ve got to make a change,”

Consider that the SOUL CALL may be for you. For we not only need good intentions to make lasting change. We not only need good plans. We also need community.

April 10, 7:00 p.m. (PST) or April 15, 1:00 p.m. (PST)

Your Soul Is Calling

IMG_6668My 2014 SOUL CALL was such a success that I will be hosting two FREE introductory calls to the 2015 SOUL CALL on Friday, April 10 at 7:00 p.m. & Wednesday, April 15 at 1:00 p.m.

What is a SOUL CALL?

Essentially, it’s a weekly conference call limited to 4 people in which you can explore and share your deepest desires and challenges in a safe and nurturing environment.

  • It’s like talking to your best friends, knowing you could trust them with your life.
  • It’s like having a therapist, spiritual guide and loving aunt all wrapped in one.
  • It’s like being in a workshop, a support group and a class every week where the subject is YOUR LIFE and…
  • It’s an opportunity to discuss the things that are most important to you and closest to your heart without having to leave your home or office.

Most likely, it’s like nothing you’ve ever experienced before.

RSVP now for a FREE introductory call and see, hear and feel for yourself whether a SOUL CALL is your next step on the journey of personal expansion and spiritual growth.

  • Introductory call #1: Friday, April 10 at 7:00 p.m.
  • Introductory call #2: Wednesday, April 15 at 1:00 p.m.
