More than the Sum of the Parts

bringing women together is a good thing in and of itself.  but when you take a group of women who are actively seeking to nurture their creative instincts…. then throw in a fabulous mountain lodge and a rare fall snowstorm….. well, some amazing things can happen!

creative sparks start to fly
seeds are planted
ideas unfold
new relationships are formed
secrets are shared in a safe place
there is an opportunity to breathe deeply and soak in the surroundings

i feel incredibly blessed to have been able to witness all of these things and many more this past weekend at the space between 4 retreat: creative practice. each of the women had something unique and beautiful to contribute.  and when that happens, something magical occurs and you end up with a result that is far more than the sum of the parts.
