Defeating the Fear Monster
No matter how successful you are or how far you have come, there is always something you are afraid of. For some of us it is fear of rejection, of not being good enough. For others it may be not having financial security, or a devastating illness. Fear holds us back from happiness and empowerment. Whatever you fear, you can conquer it. In this workshop, we will work together to create an image or creature that best represents what your fear is and then you will be guided how to transform it into love and acceptance.  Brenda Cary O'Brien https://brendacjenks.com/ - brenda4fengshui@gmail.com

The Future Favors the Bold
Knowledge is power! Through Liz’s class you will gain: a better understanding of the harmful chemicals that are part of our everyday lives, how the beauty and retail industry is shifting toward change, how we can be better stewards of the earth through sustainable practices like responsible sourcing of raw materials, better packaging, and advocacy. Liz will share her powerful story of why and how she is where she is today and how you can find your purpose for whatever it is you are meant to do. She will introduce you to a brand called Beautycounter and then be available throughout the weekend to share more and to offer make-up tips and tricks from the artists that are affiliated with this company.  Her humorous, easy going style will make you glad that you shared this time with her as you leave with thought provoking, useful and life-changing information.

Seasonal Wisdom & the Power of Ritual
The scripture of Nature has so much wisdom to share with us and the door to communication is always open!   All we need to do is set aside a moment, get outdoors, open our awareness and tune in with all of our senses. Then, in the silence, trust what you see, feel, hear, notice, experience.  Through the power of ritual, created specifically for this weekend, we'll put some basic nature awareness methods to practice to honor the season of reflection, discernment and letting go (aka Fall.)  I will be your guide  as I  introduce a simple three part process of:  Prepare (Purification), Pray (Gratitude), and Ritual (Intention) which you can do anytime, anywhere you feel called to "tune in" to what the season has to offer. Rev. Margo Mullein Nelson
