a peek at the Your Story 2012 Retreat
I'm delighted to share that registration for the Summer 2013 Your Story Retreat began this morning. The retreat will be held from June 19-23 in Gearhart, Oregon.
This year I am so excited to be welcoming back Ali Edwards and Kelly Barton and adding Vivienne McMaster to our gathering of teachers for this incredible adventure. Also a dear friend and frequent retreat participant, Sasha Clements, will be joining us as my assistant who will help our bellies stay happy as we play and recharge and connect.
Throughout the retreat and workshops, Ali, Kelly, Vivienne, and I will share stories and creative tools while creating a safe, encouraging environment for everyone. During our daily gatherings, we will explore the theme "Tell Your Story" as we dive into self-portraits, go on photography excursions, play with journals, have lots of creative fun, and so much more. We will also have some group discussions on topics like blogging and the intersection between our personal and private lives and how to navigate sharing our stories online. And this year we plan to visit Manzanita again for a field trip day!

Note: There are just 25 participant spots at this small retreat (18 spots include lodging, 7 spots available for those who want to find their own lodging). In the past, this retreat has sold out in less than a week, so keep that in mind if you are hoping to attend. Updated: Almost half of the spots are already taken.
Additionally, if you have been thinking about coming along to the Feast Retreat this April, I want to let you know that there are only 7 retreat participants spots left.
During this five-day soul care gathering in the Pacific Northwest woods outside Seattle, Kelly Barton, Hannah Marcotti, and I will be your guides as we create a safe space where you can show up as you. As a group, we will cook meals together (with chef Persephone Brown), make necklace and bracelet talismans to take home with us, explore ways to practice self-care, play with paper and color and words in journals, and circle to share stories and make deep connections.
At the Feast Retreat, you will find a place where you can: lean into trust and your inner wisdom, open your heart to kindred spirits, and spend time playing, resting, and sitting in the quiet.

Feeling so blessed that I'm able to create these retreats and do this work. Yes. I also deeply appreciate that not everyone is able to fly across the country (or the world) to come to a retreat like these. If you feel called to deeply connect with taking time for yourself and the practices we'll be sharing, consider my "tea + you + me" one-on-one option here.
Sending light and love to you in your corner of the world,
