"The body heals with play, the mind heals with laughter, and the spirit heals with joy." And, of course, plenty of yoga will set you on the way :)  


Maybe we all just need some time to be.  It’s my word for the New Year and I have to say it’s opened up a whole other level of discovery.  Discovery that I can at least be in control of many parts of my life, that I can be in creation of the life I crave.  A lot of it is slowing down.  Yes, there’s still bills to pay and grand kids to babysit (love) and responsibilities...but, there’s some things I can say no to and many things I don’t need to buy and  I’m noticing what really matters and what feels right. 


It is a fiery thing, sometimes, to be alive and committed to growth. It feels so raw to be aiming for something greater than ourselves and to be so vulnerably human at the same time. It takes courage to be alive and committed to healing. It is an invitation back to our remember to pay attention to the birds singing.  


We turn over a blank page and begin fresh. And no matter how many times we get knocked down, we rise. 


Come if you are “Be” in nature and in community with women on the path of discovery.  To a place that wraps you up in the beauty of ancient forest and the presence of four devoted teachers. We each bring our own gifts and personalities that we’ve found correspond with the elements.  Seriously! Cathy-Earth, Linda-Fire, Haley-water and me (Julie)-air.  Haha, if you haven’t practiced with us, you’ll see!   


We have so much we want to share with you on the 5th Annual Awakened Heart Journey at Vernonia Springs, Aug.2-4, 2019. Importantly, we have lots of laughs and great girl talk, healthy food, campfires, an Earth ceremony, meditations, gentle practices, reiki energy healing and soothing Crystal Singing Bowls sound baths. 


Our intention is to create a safe environment for each of you to witness your own human experience as a spiritual being.  To listen to and awaken your heart to living life simply and fully, one step, one day at a time.
