The Beauty of Presence: Opening to Joy

A Transformational Workshop

What is it and what will we do?

 The Beauty of Presence is a one day workshop for women focused on the beauty and power of living in the present moment. It will involve structured exercises and shares that encourage mindful presence, authentic relating, and gentle self discovery.  

          This is an interactional and experiential workshop wherein you will be invited to engage not only with your own heart, body, and mind, but with other kindred and sojourning women. Activities will include such things as partner sharing, small groups, large circles, journaling, mindfulness, short teachings, movement and dance. Transformational workshops such as these can be deep, transformational, invigorating and extremely life-giving!

But is this for me?

If you are looking for more joy, peace, centeredness, vibrant aliveness, and connection to God and your own heart, this workshop is for you. During our time together, there will be no need to perform or show up in a certain way. It is my (Janelle's) intention to provide a supportive and nourishing space in which you can simply "be," just as you are!
