I find that there is majesty in rituals and celebrations when the intention is about honouring the moment:  the moment of birth; the moment of marriage; the moment of death; the moment of hope when wishing anew at the start of a new year.  And always, simply always, the moment when we fall in love again.

FACILITATED CONVERSATIONS, INTERVIEWS, LECTURES, RETREATS, CONTEMPLATIVE WORKSHOPS FROM 2009 TO 2019 > WRITING FROM THE SOUL/ The Golden Door, Escondido, California, July 31 to August 07, 2011
WRITING FROM THE SOUL/ The Golden Door, Escondido, California, July 31 to August 07, 2011
Summary: A personal invitation to immerse yourself in tranquility of mind, body and spirit as you hear the written language of mystics, poets and writers illuminate their authentic journeys. Listening to the language of soulful writers and creative thinkers soothes the spirit, stills the mind, and relaxes the body. From that place of inner quietude and deep listening, you are then invited to open the doorway to your soul’s language. Arrived to the mystical place within, you will easily find the language to write the words that are longing to be written, illuminating your expression of heart and soul.

The Golden Door Fitness Resort, 40-miles northeast of San Diego is a transformative experience for all who enter this spectacular spa destination. 

 

"Delve into a purposeful sojourn to self-discovery and inner beauty.  Within Golden Door begin a path of deep reflection leading to a soulful transformation and rededication to the infinite possibilites of personal evolution."

 

It is also written that it is a soulful sanctuary that continues to be recognized as one of the best destination spas in the country, if not the world.   After 50 years, Golden Door continues to provide a life affirming experience for all who cross the threshold.

 

I am the only presenter invited to lead a special focus week workshop from July 31 to August 07, 2011.  It will be a women's only week.  Let's be together in this  serenely magnificent Japanese-inspired environment....
