WORDS AND STARS: USING THE CYCLES OF NATURE, THE SUN & MOON FOR SUSTAINABLE SELF-CARE
Astrology can be a wonderful tool to re-tell yourself stories about yourself through a gentle, poetic lens. Using Journal to the Self, a research-based method to help deepen or jump start your journal-writing practice, we’ll track on the cycles of the sun and moon – as well as those found in your own star map – to develop a customized plan for renewable, sustainable self-care. Space is limited to 5 explorers. Three 3-hour sessions include workbook and astro insights. Pre-registration and birth data required.
LOGIC, MEET INTUITION: USING TAROT TO MAKE SENSE OF NONSENSE
Are you ready to gently yet courageously respond to that which is calling for your attention? Or maybe you’re just looking for ways to bridge your own logic and intuition, body and spirit? Join me for a journey into the symbols and stories of the Tarot – the archetypal Hero’s Journey that we all experience. Through connecting with these big themes, we re-tell the stories we tell ourselves and strengthen our courage and self-compassion to meet life’s daily uncertainties.

BURNOUT RECOVERY – ReCLAIM YOUR SPARK
Have you thought about starting – or reviving – a journal-writing practice but don’t know where to begin? Let’s connect pen to paper and find the spark to keep it going! Journal/expressive writing is an effective tool to help strengthen well-being, reduce stress and anxiety, and improve mood. It can even help accelerate the healing process and clarify a cluttered mind, making way for full engagement with people, places and experiences. I’ll share simple and proven methods for writing for yourself based on the work of Kathleen Adams, author of Journal to the Self® and founder of the Center for Journal Therapy.
Three 3-hour sessions include a Journal to the Self® workbook and 1 private consult. Pre-reg required.
HOW TO BUILD RAPPORT – WITH JUST ABOUT ANYONE
Personal and professional effectiveness, satisfying relationships and any change process all rely on two things: clear communication and a willingness to self-reflect. We can be great at communicating our position, but if we’re not willing to connect, listen and respond accordingly, true rapport is absent. In this training, we identify our own communication patterns and desired outcomes, review some nonverbal communication principles, and practice concrete strategies to build stronger personal and professional rapport – with just about anyone! 2 4-hour classes.
SELF-COMPASSION & THE POWER OF EMOTIONAL FLUENCY
Do you ever feel like your emotions are running the show? Would you like to have a friendlier relationship with the sometimes-mysterious, sometimes-stormy realm of your emotional life? You’ll learn how to build emotional intelligence and how to integrate some great tools into your self-care toolkit. Mindful self-compassion, journal-writing, and aromatherapy all build direct access to our conscious and unconscious minds, and help us trust our own experience and expand our emotional “fluency.” Bring a pen + your journal or your laptop.
