"Gratitude is a powerful catalyst for happiness.
It’s the spark that lights a fire of joy in your soul." ~ Amy Collette
As the light of days shorten and cold settles in we may feel an “invitation,” deeply
rooted within our very being, to shift from outward to inward with a deepening awareness
of the many blessings that truly grace our lives.
In this time of deepening Autumn, let us pause, ponder and give thanks.
Living in Rhythm; With A Thankful Heart Virtual Retreat
Nov. 7 - Nov. 13, 2022
THE RETREAT: This online mini retreat offers daily creative explorations
and spiritual practices designed to help you deepen your awareness of Life’s blessings through
a variety of short and simple, yet rich and fulfilling ways of exploring your opportunities for
gratitude and of giving thanks.
Online: At home; no travel involved.
Mini: "Bite-sized" retreat sessions that fit easily into even a busy day.
Self-guided: You choose when/if you engage in daily activities, which ones, how much time you
spend, etc. Rather freeing, in a grown up kind of way, don’t you think?
Live Elements: via ZOOM
What is a Retreat? An intentional respite; a hiatus from one’s daily routines
Retreats that involve going physically to a different location for a specific time period compel us
to experience a change of physical, mental and spiritual "scenery". With an online
retreat it is up to each of us to honor and gift ourselves the time and space for
rest, renewal and fresh perspectives as well as for the blossoming of inspiration,
creative thinking, learning and doing. The daily sessions, with creative explorations
and spiritual practices, provide the framework in which to do this.
WHAT'S INCLUDED: Seven days of a variety of self-guided creative arts
and spiritual practices designed to deepen one’s connection to and expression of gratitude*.
Music, dance, visual arts, meditations, visio divina, movement, poetry, ritual, journaling;
presented through videos and downloadable pdfs.
*Each daily offering can take about 15 min. to do. However, you are invited - and encouraged -
to take as much time as you desire to ponder and explore the creative art or spiritual practice
invitation more deeply.
A live Welcome Gathering as well as a live Closing Gathering, via Zoom give us the opportunity
to engage with each other, to meet and share in a Community of Gratitude. To hear from others
on the "journey" at the same time as ourselves can be powerful, interesting and fun. Each Zoom
session will be approx. 45 - 60 min. in length. Replays available for those unable to attend live.
VIRTUAL RETREAT INVESTMENT: The investment is $45.
The number 45 represents abundant times and encourages us to stay positive
and keep our faith during challenging times. It seems a perfect fit with our
focus on gratitude!
However, I am delighted to share a special opportunity with you!
The first online mini-retreat I offered, The Autumnal Equinox, was so well received
and participants have requested more offerings, so I am leading three mini-retreats
over the coming months.

Dec. 2022 Winter Solstice Retreat focus: Rhythms of Nature, Season of Light.
Jan. 2023 New Year Start Retreat focus: Living Inspired and Vibrant in 2023.
Enroll in A Thankful Heart mini-retreat and the investment is $45. OR Enroll in all three now and the investment
is $99. (Yes, $33 per retreat ~ my guardian angel number!)
"We can only be said to be alive in those moments when
It is with a thankful heart that I send you Blessings of Gratitude ~
our hearts are conscious of our treasures."
