Fall Opportunities from Consecrate the Day

Dear Friends,
I want to share some great creative, soul renewing offerings with you!  I am so excited to be partnering with some wonderful individuals to bring you incredible opportunities this Fall.



In October, I will partner with Jenn Bissett, PhD for an Expressive Workshop called Artful Acceptance.




Often we find ourselves feeling emotionally drained and struggle with accepting ourselves as worthy and/or good enough. Our internal critic is a loud voice that tends to drown out the affirmations we have received. Too often we know the words we need to say to ourselves but somehow they fall short of expressing how we really feel. Expressive therapies that incorporate movement, art and spiritual meditation can help to diminish the gap between where words end and feelings begin.

Come and expressively explore your emotions related to self- acceptance and learn about the importance of authenticity and self acceptance to self-esteem, confidence, coping and happiness. We will use Intentional Creativity to release old thought patterns related to self acceptance and step into a new way of being that embraces the beauty of you!

Tentatively scheduled for- (Dates may change)
Fri., October 7th 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. &

Sat., October 8th from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
