My desire to offer Women’s retreats was birthed by the death of my soul sister. After her transition, I was grieving and missing her and could not find any good in her departure. Then I thought, “What is it that I miss”?
I missed her unconditional love, steadfast support and loving conversations. I realized I also missed her physicality of hugs, tears, smiles, laughter and mischievous twinkles of the eye. I then thought, “Is there a way to guide other women into this way of loving, relating and supporting one another”? And then came the thought, “Do it! Create a space for love and support and bring women together!” Since that time, I have passionately facilitated many women’s retreats. There is something powerful that happens when women come together to support each other on their journeys. We are nurtured, feel understood, share vulnerability, are loved, comforted and healed. When we share Sacred space and time together we magnify the power of our intentions and create a web of support, not only for our circle of women, but for women everywhere. Now and again, I see glimpses of good from my dear friend as she pushes me from beyond the veil to live my passion and purpose. Thank you, my forever Soul Sister.
A Women’s retreat can be your group of Practitioners, a group of your congregants, your group of friends, or come join a group as it is Divinely formed for you. If you desire deep, loving and supportive women in your life, please call to explore the infinite possibilities.
The next retreat will be September 20-24, 2021. Experiencing this curriculum created by Rev Lloyd Strom and Rev Marcia Sutton is one of immense life transformation. There is a deep connection with God, a firm resolution of understanding, a surrendering to Living Your Life Purpose. LMLP brings you into a joyous and wondrous alignment with who you are and why you are here and what is yours to do. It provides a loving and safe place for each participant to realize new levels of understandings about deep rooted beliefs; the way and ability to dismantle these beliefs and to firmly root new beliefs in their place which are based in Spiritual Truth. This transformation of personal Truth and Freedom empowers, inspires and overflows into all aspects of life daily living and ways of being in the world.
Co-facilitated by myself and the wonderfully spectacular Stef Swink, this week-long intensive retreat contains many components each of which build on the next. It includes creation of a personal “Sacred Covenant” the means by which “we reveal God’s will as our own”. You will be amazed at how your life will transform and how all good shows up in your life.
