There are LOTS of things bubbling in my heart as I’m planning the next few playshops for our creative girls AND for creative WOMEN too!
For now, I have two invitations I’d like to extend, especially for women.
A few times a year I am honored to offer playshops at A Place for Women to Gather. The next program is called “Lighting Her Moon” and is especially for mothers, grandmothers, aunts and other women who have a young girl in their lives. I created this program because it was something I wanted to experience myself, for my own daughters. This playshop will offer an opportunity for learning and sharing that I feel is very important for the health of our daughters, and for honoring our own female sacredness.
Here is the description from the brochure:
Lighting HER Moon
This program shares ideas and traditions celebrating our daughters first menstruation and monthly moon time. It intends to spark ideas about how we can best honor our own girls’ transition into this special time in a girl’s life in our modern lives. We will explore different rituals and practices around the world honoring girls’ first menarche and her ongoing lunar cycles. The last portion of our time together we will create a hand-molded candle, reflecting the Navajo practice of molding, molding into the candle your intentions for strength, wisdom and courage for a young girl in your life.
Dates/Times: Wednesday, September 3, 6:30–9 p.m. OR Saturday, September 6, 1–3:30 p.m.
Suggested donation: $35 (includes materials)

Sacred Kindness Retreat
Many women have asked me to create creative GIRL playshops specifically for women … and the secret is out … I’m excited to share with you that I DO! Registration just opened for the fall Sacred Kindness Retreat. This special 4 day, 3 night mountain pilgrimage is offered twice a year for 13 women. The next one will be October 9th to the 12th. To see full information, please visit http://www.selfkindnessretreat.com . At this time there are 9 openings.
Oooh, and I’m excited to tell you that I’ll be announcing the Fall Creative GIRL date later this week.
(AND I have some other exciting things to share next month.)
It is such a joy and blessing to be able to create these beautiful programs that honor our daughters AND the GIRL inside of us. Thank you for seeing the beauty and importance of this –what I know in my heart to be– sacred work.
