Why I'm Doing This

My first retreat experience was Liz Lamoreaux’s BePresent retreat,
 on the coast of Oregon in 2009.

It was an amazing and life-changing event on so many levels. The setting, the learning, the sharing, the connecting – it was an experience unlike any I had had in my life up till that time.

The seeds of putting together my own retreat on a smaller scale came to me slowly.... in bits and pieces... and in March of 2010 the first Space Between retreat was launched.


Even though there were only four of us, everything about the retreat exceeded my expectations.  I went on to plan another and then another!  After now planning and executing four successful overnight retreat experiences and five daytime workshops, I feel that this is the path I need to be on.  There are so many women out there who need some creative re-fueling or just need to start finding their creative voice.  And this is the perfect opportunity to do that!

At this point, I am not bringing in "big names" to teach at the retreats.  There are already lots of retreats out there that offer this. I believe it can be just as meaningful without that since we all have so much so share with each other (not to mention the cost savings!)

I am not much of a salesperson. I have no agenda other than gathering women together in the name of inspiration and encouragement.  If this is something that speaks to you, by all means, let me know. If not, thanks for stopping by!!
