A Legacy Circle

Saturday, Dec 2nd
10:30 am - 1:30pm

At The Red Shoes


Legacy... what has been passed on to you?

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in

  -Leonard Cohen


While the holidays can bring joy and love, it is also a time we are aware of our wounds and losses.


Let the light into your dark places. We invite you to share your tender, vulnerable heart with compassionate witnesses. Allow the "cracks" to become sources of wisdom and warmth.

Honor your loved one through the warmth of treasured memory and recognizing the gifts they brought and continue to grace your life with.

We will engage in an honoring ceremony and create a prayer altar adorned with photographs and meaningful objects that connect us with those who now, live only in our hearts. As you take the next step on your healing journey may you find solace, as you transform your loss into a loving legacy.  

Facilitated by Kimberly Moore, a professional coach who received her certification through CaPP Institutes Certified and Personal Executive Coach Program with many years of experience with supporting families through many different avenues.

Live your miraculous life! Miracles take us out of the predictable and into the extraordinary where frequent serendipities, personal breakthroughs, and joy become the new normal. We are all capable of living a miraculous life. 

The Winter Quarter is all about the hopefulness of light returning at a time of great darkness. 


Some things we will focus on this Winter quarter:

  • What do you want to grow into your life over the next year?
  • Are you ready to dream bigger dreams to grow the life you want?
  • Where is there an empty space ready to be filled? 
  • Would you like to feel more connected to your spirit, your intuition, and your inner guidance?
  • Are you ready to transform despair into faith and cultivate miracle-mindedness?

Just as winter darkness gives way to the light of spring, classes this season align with the power of winter to call forth renewal and rebirth.

Sessions include information and exercises for applying spiritual principles to everyday life and an interactive opportunity to ask questions and receive personal input. Join any time. Drop in or attend regularly.


Facilitated by Lynn Woodland, creator of the Miracles Course, is an international teacher and human potential expert whose particular expertise is in what gives rise to miracles and in teaching ordinary people to live extraordinary lives so that miracles become, not just possible, but natural.
