Getting Quiet Together

Stepping into 2024

January 11 - 14 2024 ∙​ SEABROOK, WA

The ExperiencE

Most of the things we need to be most fully alive never come in busyness.
They grow in rest.

Join me in a magical place to welcome in the New Year. Together we will let go of what we no longer want to carry and set our direction for 2024. 

A new year brings fresh start energy and inspires us to assess where we are in our lives and where we dream of seeing ourselves in the future. 

The world is in a time of great transition. And while the world is changing we are called to change, too. 

We are being called into a deeper awareness. 

Take time to rest and deepen into a quiet place within. 

Wrap yourself in quiet ~ the cozy fire and the beauty of the ocean and forest trails leading you to a place of rest and relaxation. 

Supported by this quiet place, we will explore intentional practices for creating constructive new ways of being within ourselves that will shape our doing and make a difference in the world.
