Take the time to reflect and make conscious choices about what really matters to you. If you start clearing away the clutter from your life today, the boulders in the stream interrupting your flow, you will be that much more empowered to change your world tomorrow.

Reflection & Renewal Retreats

2019 Offerings

In 2019 I will be co-leading two retreats with my dear friend and colleague, Barbara Carlson. Barbara facilitates classes and retreats that focus on a variety of behavioral health and emotional wellness themes with an emphasis on cultivating awareness and health of mind, body and spirit. We’ll meet in my Albany studio, a light filled space with wood floors and garden views, ideal for gathering and reflection.

Feb 2, 2019            1:00-4:00 pm, Cost: $65

Join us for a deeply renewing and energizing workshop that explores the introspective, contracting energy of winter. Anchoring guided discussion and individual reflection with embodied practice, we will listen in to what is calling us in the new year. What needs to be released or confronted? Strengthed or reimagined?

Co-led with Barbara Carlson.



Apr 2019            Date and Time TBD, Cost: $65

Spring is a time of birth and new beginnings. The seeds we have planted with our intention and attention have developed roots and are moving upward. What is needed to break through to the surface? With meditation, dialogue, and yoga movement, we will cultivate the openness, flexibility, and steadiness required to realize new possibilities.
