The ART of Moving through Change

Women’s Healing & Transformation Retreat

Lotus & The Butterfly :: Women's NC Beach Retreat :: August 26-28 2016

Join us for a compassionate & creative look at change! 8/26-->8/28 2016 (Friday 7PM - Sunday 12PM)

How do you deal with change?

Times of transition are oh, so difficult and beautiful all at once. How do you deal with change? Do you stuff it? Move quickly hoping it'll go away? Leap to the next thing? Process it slowly? If you've not taken time to slow down, reflect, be still, be quiet and appreciate what's come of the change you've gone or are going through- this is your invitation to embrace change and learn the art of letting go while you de-stress, refresh and create what's next!

Who's this retreat for?

Busy professionals who are at a crossroads and need clarity, and a break from life, from work and from that stuff you don't want to face alone. If you're eager to release those heavy parts of life that tend to weigh you down and get in the way of designing what's next, then you'll feel right at home with us during this thoughtful retreat. Explore the process of change artfully through community, collaboration, mindfulness and creative release.

Imagine a weekend where you don't have to cook or manage anyone else's problems. Now imagine a compassionate and creative experience where you may safely and confidentially express, be at peace, learn to let go, share and come fully alive.

Which one of these are you facing?
  • High stress job/life/situation or simply overwhelmed
  • Responsible for leading change in others or manager of many
  • Desire to learn about change for personal & professional development
  • Forging new paths in life/work
  • At a crossroads, in transition or facing the next chapter
  • Dealing with hidden grief or compassion fatigue
  • Facing health issues, are a survivor, care-taker or lost loved one
  • Entering new phase of life through retirement, empty-nest, divorce or marriage and creating new identity or direction

If you are looking for ... peace of mind, creativity, community, and healing while learning coping tools and strategies to deal with or lead change in yourself or others- then join us!
