Settling Into Good Things
So I have made the transition into my new space. It could not have turned out better. There has been so much love and care that has gone into the creation of it. I am so grateful for all of my friends and family that have put so much time and effort into the realization of my dream. I was also honored to have some wonderful women, my soul sisters, come and offer a blessing over the cottage during the Spring Equinox Gathering. The traditions of Buddhism, Shamanism and Christianity were represented. This is so in line with what the studio embraces, all beliefs, all walks of life. To have this so lovingly offered touched me very deeply. I could feel the sacredness each blessings held.
Life has been busy and exciting!! The Women's Retreats have been amazingly successful. They have taken on a life of their own and are being given room to fly!!! Always supported by Inspirit Studios. Be on the watch for our new website www.sisterhoodoftheredtent.com. Anita Kiger and I are thrilled to be able to bring this part of our journey to the next level. We have also connected with another sisterhood from France and will be hosting their retreat in October!! Going international. WOW!!!!!!
Keep on the watch for upcoming classes and events. I have also added a few new products to sell. Of course we have the Smudge Spray that just jumps off of the shelf, but let me suggest the handmade soaps and healing balm. I have also re embraced my love for herbs and am now offering some personal tea blends to tend to your soul. The Sleep Well and Morning Meadow have gotten wonderful feed back.
Oh and last but not least, I am so honored to be officiating my first two wedding in the next two months! Pictures to follow.
Life is an amazing journey. Love/Live it!

I'm Seeing Red
(This is a poem written by one our beautiful sisters who has attended the retreats. We have watched her bloom during her journey and are so honored that she is willing to share her poetry with us. Check back soon for her others!)
I'm Seeing Red
Hating myself and feeling unloved,
Wanting to have, but receiving none
Mad at the world and wanting to die
Being found by my family is why I didn't try
Crying outloud, while lying in bed
Dear God, I'm ANGRY - I'm seeing red.
Met someone and we started as friends
Will we have a future, how will this end???
Now we are lovers and said our "I do's"
Ups and downs we've had, more many than few
Forever we are, this happily said
Dear God, I'm LOVED - I'm seeing red.
Thought of not going, never doing for me
Told myself to try it, you'll like it you'll see
New faces, new experiences here in this tent
Beautiful sisters and courage, must be heaven sent
Self love found and inhibitions shed,
Dear God, I LOVE ME - I'm seeing red.
Celebrate Another Day of Living
written by life coach Ann Darwicki
A few days ago , I was playing a game on my phone when an add popped up. I have to admit, I was pretty annoyed with the ads now popping up on my phone. As I sat there waiting impatiently for the ad to end, I heard a message that stopped me in my tracks, and struck a cord within me on a very deep level. They were playing a song that I had heard many times before but had never truly heard . This time I did however, and, what a whole new perspective! “ I just want to celebrate another day of living, I just want to celebrate, celebrate, another day of life”. I didn’t just hear the words this time, I felt the power of the message behind them. The messages are all around us, prompting us, reminding us, yet how often do we listen? I was amazed at how simple the words were, yet truly applying them in my life would totally transform me and how I lived day to day. Living life as a celebration, not taking for granted that I would wake up each day and be here to see the day end. While I know this on an intellectual level, we all do, how different would I be if I actually lived it? I saw each day, each experience for what it is, a gift. None of us are promised tomorrow, all we really have is right now, to fully live, in this moment. Living from this new perspective, I feel a sense of gratitude for being alive, I give myself permission not to hold back, wait for a better time to do something. For there is no better time, this is the time. Use the good china, wear our favorite clothes that we are saving for a special occasion, tell the people in our life how much we love them, do the things that make us happy, now, not later. How freeing, how empowering to live from this new perspective. If this stirs something in you also, come join me on August 23 from 11-3 for my workshop to explore- are your beliefs holding you back or propelling you forward, living every day as a celebration? I just want to celebrate another day of living, celebrate another day of Life!!
