New Year’s Spiritual Renewal Retreat ONLINE!
(Early Bird Price Ends Tues 12/29) 


End the old year and give birth to the new in a spiritually nourishing way.  This retreat allows you to sink deeply into your heart’s knowing and fine-tune your life purpose and calling. Enjoy the time, space, and loving support needed to renew your connection to the ever-fresh source of divinity that is your birthright.

My annual  New Year’s Spiritual Renewal Retreat will not happen at Kripalu since their building is closed this season, but I decided to go with a smaller version of the retreat online! 

DATE:  12/31/20, Thursday. EARLY BIRD PRICES ENDS TUES 12/29/20
Day Schedule: 

11am-2pm EST: 1st Session:

2pm-2:30 EST: Short break:

2:30-5:30. EST: Afternoon Session;


This day will include: 

  • Deep meditation
  • breath practice
  • mantra and song
  • Causal Work: deep work of creating in meditation, work from essence to form, from Causal Body to Subtle, to allow it the very best to become reality. 
  • Focused small group inquiry (with option for solitary writing inquiry, instead)
  • Vision Journeying–working with your inner archetypes. 
  • Fine tuning and visioning for 2021
  • Q & A

Fee: I’m keeping it lower due to these challenging times: sliding $165–$135. 

EARLY BIRD: If you pay by Dec 29th  the early bird will be sliding scale $150-120. 

For now I’m keeping registration simple. Once I receive your payment I’ll send you the retreat Zoom link and password.
