Move out of "Stuck" and into Perfectly Imperfect Action

 

You have a big dream or project—that book you want to write, the new business to launch, the garden to plant, the space to clean out, a new degree to earn—but you can’t seem to get started. Join us for an interactive day of inquiry, strategizing, brainstorming exercises, encouragement, and mutual accountability to identify and start breaking through the blocks of overwhelm, procrastination, shame, perfectionism and fear. Our goal? To experience the exhilaration of stepping out of "Stuck" and into “Perfectly (im)Perfect Action.” Make 2017 the year you get it done!  


Facilitated by Chris Kisling, mentor and life coach who helps people break through the blocks that stand between them and the life they want. Learn more at You-Are-OK.com.

Lunations: New Moon Ritual

Thursday         January 26         6-7:30 pm

Join us as we tap into the cycle of the moon, a source for re-centering and re-grounding. Inspired by Christine Page's research on the "healing power of the sacred woman," our monthly gatherings on the evening of the new moon include discussion, meditation, music and a water ritual. With the dark sky of the new moon, learn to tap into your own power and let go of thoughts and feelings that no longer serve you. This monthly gathering provides a safe, nourishing space for support.  


Facilitated by Lisa Bovenkamp-Langlois, who enjoys sharing and is nourished by this ritual.
