preheat oven to a perfect temperature – not too hot, not too cold
main ingredient: a group of courageous, diverse women; open-minded, accepting, ready to share, and virtually brimming with creative talents (some obvious, some requiring a bit of digging to uncover)
a variety of art projects
beautiful hiking trails
snacks of all sorts
stacks of stimulating books
hot tub under a star-studded sky
gather all ingredients and mix gently in a majestic mountain lodge surrounded by acres of open land and fabulous views. toss in a few random surprises, a couple of amazing sunrises, constantly changing swirling mists and bake for an entire weekend. remove from oven, top with a shared energy circle and sprinkle with love.
yield: an experience like no other (once you go, you get it)
warning: results may be long-lasting, possibly lifelong.
(i’m a lucky girl….)
