The start of a new year is traditionally a time for reflection before we move into the growing light of possibilities. This is a time to Find your Middle Ground and tune in to what is calling to you.

I will be hosting a Winter mini-retreat on Sunday January 22nd from 2.00pm – 3.30pm ET. Let us come together to connect, reflect and explore a sense of destiny for the year ahead.

There is no rush. In nature there is no urgency right now. Winter is a time to step back and reflect. Let a new rhythm and sense of balance begin to unfold.

John O’Donohue captures this so well:

“ Each one of us has something to do here that can be done by no one else. If someone else could fulfill your destiny, then they would be in your place, and you would not be here.

It is in the depths of your life that you will discover the invisible necessity that has brought you here. When you begin to decipher this, your gift and giftedness come alive. Your heart quickens and the urgency of living rekindles your creativity.

If you can awaken this sense of destiny, you come into rhythm with your life. You fall out of rhythm when you renege on your potential and talent, when you settle for the mediocre as a refuge from the call. When you lose rhythm, your life becomes wearyingly deliberate or anonymously automatic.

Rhythm is the secret key to balance and belonging.”

~ O’Donohue, John. Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom (p. 84). HarperCollins. Kindle Edition.

Let’s come together in community, take time for journalling, reflection and gentle movement to bring our gifts and giftedness to life, and find a sense of balance in the rhythm of our lives. A donation of $20 is suggested or whatever amount feels right to you.

Complete the form below or let me know directly if you are interested.

Thank you for being here.

  3. I am under no doubt that all who will attend your retreat will benefit … May we all of us follow the rhythm of the beat of our own hearts and intuition.. The world would then I am sure regain its balance if we each connected back within our hearts..
    Have a wonderful and Happy New Year Val… ❤

  4. “There is no rush. In nature there is no urgency right now. Winter is a time to step back and reflect. Let a new rhythm and sense of balance begin to unfold.” I realize I have been fighting this to some degree, after 17 years of living in Hawaii! Chris is building me an art studio these days, it’s coming along! That way, I can tuck into the studio and focus on creating during this ‘downtime.’ Blessings, Val. 😘
