june 14-19, 2019 : Women's Retreat : Ghost Ranch, NM
what is flow?
Have you noticed the palpable magic in the air when you meet someone who is fearlessly living their authentic life? They radiate joy, clarity, authenticity, and a calm sense of self. 'Magical' or unusually fortunate events seem to always be happening in this person's life. You feel at ease in their presence and their energy seems to welcome you into their sparkling sense of possibility. This person is living in flow.
This June we will tap into the energy of flow on the sacred land of Ghost Ranch, NM. We will occupy the home where Georgia O’Keefe realized and embodied her powerful creative force. The profound in-between space of this land will wake you up to the Original dream of your true Self. Utilizing the tools and touchstones of transformative art, writing, guided meditation, nature walks, reiki healing, and gentle yoga you will naturally release the energies of fear and scarcity and become engaged with the expansive, authentic, flow of your soul. Shortly after you begin these practices a series of signs & synchronicities will show up in your life pointing you in just the right direction to reveal your next steps. Most often we receive a calling greater than what we could have imagined for ourselves.
“It is not a country of light on things,” said Georgia O’Keeffe. “It is a country of things in light.”
The landscape of Ghost Ranch—made famous by painter Georgia O’Keeffe—encompasses 21,000 acres of towering rock walls, vivid colors and vast skies. People from all over the world come to work together in creation care, to paint, write poetry, to hike, ride horseback, to research globally renowned archaeological and fossil quarries or simply to rest and renew their spirits.
Our women's group will be staying in the very special dwelling of Casa del Sol, located two miles from the main Ghost Ranch facilities. Casa del Sol is the home where Georgia O'Keefe would lie upon the rooftop to gaze at the stars and draw inspiration from the heavens.
