Invite FLOW into your life!

In one magical weekend, you will be inspired and guided by three gifted women to answer three important questions that every woman struggles with:

FLOW into alignment with the Divine

For years, you’ve being defined by outside factors. In this weekend, you will unlock your true self by reaching into the natural part of your soul, the heart of who you are … and uncover the true you.

You will benefit from masterful teachings in three distinct workshops that will expand your energy and consciousness.

Part I – Who Am I?  It’s easy it is to lose sight of who you are in this busy world. But you will soon discover that everything thing you need, to be who you were created to be, lies within you waiting to be revealed. Utilizing the Four Elements as a foundation, Gillian will help you explore such questions as: Where do I feel most grounded? What words do I want to cultivate? What is my passion? Where is FLOW in my life?

Part 2 – What do I Want?  Debbi understands the power of words. During her Vision Board Workshop, you will reflect upon a power word(s) that will motivate and elevate you to your highest self. You will create a vision board that will not only highlight 7 key areas of your life, but she will also show you how to create a plan to manifest your best life. All Vision Board supplies will be included. Please bring a photo of yourself in a happy time to complete your “Heart Art” Vision Board. 

Part 3 How do I Express It?  As our culminating activity, Elizabeth will guide you to create your own abstract painting. By going straight to abstraction, the heart is able to speak clearly, loudly, profoundly…while the inner critic sings nothing but praise.  You will start (and most will complete) a 16”x20” canvas. All your tools, paint, and empowering guidance will be provided. All you need to do is let the acrylics flow…
