Description

A weekend retreat designed to assist women who have felt the need for CHANGE.  Soulidarity is the capacity to break through and rediscover who they have become and determine what they want to make of life.  It starts with FIND ME- getting back in touch with themselves- the hopes and dreams of the future, the Voices of Yes and No inside, creating a vision of that future.   Then FIND MY Path- creating an ideal picture of the LIFE they would like to bring in to their future by design. We finish with FIND THAT – the step by step guide to creating that dream reality in the present.  By the end of the weekend, each woman will have moved closer to her healing and feel the connection to her soul.


This workshop is designed for women seeking to experience connection and happiness in LIFE again – either because the current life is not working or because they have adversity to overcome.

The program, called  Soulidarity – 90 days to a Better YOU  is my signature coaching program designed to bring about a new, exciting and loving transformation  envisioned and created by you. We use creative visualization, journaling, and group discussion/Q&A to bring about the transformation.

 

Surviving two divorces, all while running a successful bed and breakfast and a life coaching practice as a single mom, I learned the ropes of how to overcome setbacks  and move my life forward with a positive mindset. It paid off when I reconnected with my first true love and now, 7 years later, we are happily married and I am living the life I dreamed and planned for.  Just as things were sailing along smoothly, I suffered a setback with the loss of my son in a tragic car accident. Once more, I faced the lesson of overcoming adversity and moving forward. I’ve written a book about my journey and now coach women through their own adversities to find themselves again.

Through group discussion, journaling, meditation, vision boards, one-to-one consultations and mapping, you will:

  • Learn to get in touch with their inner voice
  • find guidance and  clear specific direction from listening to self

In the workshop, attendees will create a vision board and journaling, designing a planner for the next 90 days to write down and follow their goal progress.  They will create a picture/visualization of the ideal life/changes they are seeking and action steps to bring this into their life. Various methods of spiritual self healing will be taught and discussed. An extensive list of reading materials will be included as well.

You will take home a number of practical tools, Planner/journal, vision boards,  Life map, completed Goals workbook, and swag bag of gifts.  
 

Open to all women.
