September 2018 

Here we are! Labor Day weekend is upon us! I have spent time reflecting on the word “labor”. It is used when women give birth. It is sometimes referred to as a task of an arduous nature. To me, it is the work we do in the world. Labor of love. What is your labor of love? What is your calling and what is your offering? This doesn’t have to be a “job” but more of a vocation. A calling of a higher order. We all have one, some of us take a while to find it. I know mine is to create spaces where healing, creativity, community, hope, sacredness, absurdity and more are possible.  As I get older, I love my solitude and deep time of reflection and that feeds the well that allows me to be in my family and be present, to be in my beloved community and to be in various settings with various peoples creating these spaces of possibility and potential. Please consider joining me at any of these offerings especially the retreat in the Blue Ridge Mountains that is coming up soon! We have some slots left! I have had a ton of inquiries so please reserve your space today! Also, look for pop up Dance Parties in random locations in Johnstown!

Seeking the Wisdom in the Collective. That is the heart and soul of the retreat I am co facilitating in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley in September. Much of our time will be sharing dialogue with each other on using simple conversations to restore hope to the future (from the work of Margaret Wheatley, Brown, Joanna Macy and rev angel Kyodo Williams) and supporting this with practices of sound healing with crystal bowls, gongs and didgeridoo, Expressive Movement, Collective Lament, Collective Joy, Chant, Mantra, Drumming and Yoga for Transformation.  More information can be found here and on my YogaSong Facebook Page.

Update! 8 spaces left! Get your spot today!!

I am so grateful for the community that is growing in the home studio. It is so awesome to see people returning and new faces arriving. I am blessed by all of your presence! Hope to continue to have farm fresh eggs available $2.00/dozen and the fruit water while the weather is still warm and am experimenting with kombucha and hope to have that available as well. I appreciate your patience with our construction project and we love offering hospitality even in the chaos of construction!
