Daytime Walking With Women
Date: January 23rd | 12:30 PM – 3:30 PM EST
Our Guest speaker will be Stacey Hanlon of Wildflower Story who will show us how worthiness and mindset play a role in business.
Stacey ‘s Story: Looking back..… I realize that there were so many times when I should have spoke up for myself. I should have created boundaries around the way I wanted to be treated. I needed to be stronger and I needed to love myself.
So, I took a risk and invested in myself. I dove into unapologetic self-care after decades of being the victim. I want to help you change your story, too. Too few people are talking about the need for self-care, sisterhood, and self-esteem. I’ve been called to be that voice.
Let’s move together from a place of struggle to a place of worthiness.
Date: February 20th | 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM
Our Guest speaker will be Dr. Laura Gravelle she will share and unlock secrets of stress and the brain.
-What is YOUR stress signature?
-What is YOUR stress physiology?
-What does the nerve system tell us about your life to date?
-What is the load of life?
-What healing archetype are you?
It is all about connection. What are you connected to? What have you lost connection to ? Yourself? Others? Things you love? Experiences? People ? Places? Joy? Creation? Dr. Laura uses a “hierarchy of vitality” to explain the goal in facilitating ease and connection back into our body.
Date: April 23rd | 12:30 PM – 3:30 PM
Our Guest speaker will be Angela Patterson of Zenfire Pottery. Angela will help us explore our creative side by teaching us to work with clay and embrace play from a new perspective. Angela will show us how the wheel works, explain clay and its process to become pottery, and explain how creativity comes to her. Angela will use her experience and teaching skills to guide us into unleashing our own creativity and created a pinch pot using only our hands.
Angela’s passion for pottery started with a mug. Back in 2010 when she first laid eyes on a beautiful black glaze she had never seen before. Prior to this, she did not enjoy anything about pottery – the colors she saw, the feeling of the rough clay. Until she saw this mug and then began the hunt.
Angela believes that opportunities come to us to see and experience the world differently. We can choose to act on it or to continue as we always have. When she saw that mug, a spark was ignited and now she shares that passion and sparks with each of her guests to inspire possibility.
Parking is parallel on the streets in front of the studio or the surrounding side streets and we begin sharply at 12:30 so please arrive with enough time to place items on the swag table and take a seat.
A welcome centering and food blessing will happen at 12:30 SHARP, followed by lunch. The menu will be launched closer to the event for you to select your choices.
**Please give 4 days notice of any allergies AND PRE-PAY**
All dietary restrictions will be considered and I will attempt to have something for everyone.
All primed up with creativity flowing we will then break into business groups getting to know each other and engaging in mastermind groups to help idea share and solution solve for our fellow colleagues. This is like a group coaching session where we idea share and help each other grow! We will have time to share our goals and recap on what worked and needs improvement from our goals the month before,
