We’re moving our annual BURN/VISION retreat from Richmond to Virginia Beach!!

It’s the beginning of the New Year, Holidays are over and now it’s time to breathe, reflect and plan. Trust me, this is the place you want to BE. Throughout the weekend, We will guide you, support you, lift you, listen to you and speak to your spirit.

This retreat is designed for a small and intimate group of women who intend to manifest different results beginning Friday evening.The discussion is based on you sharing your Silence experience. It’s eye-opening when you describe your experience, but enlightening to hear from others.

Seating is limited.

Day 1

The time is yours. Put your phone in a drawer, relax and enjoy your gifts.

The Burn Conversation

“Sometimes you have to let everything go – purge yourself. If you are unhappy, with anything – whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you will find that when you are free, your true creativity, your true self comes out.”

– Tina Turner

Wine and cheese (we provide)
The conversation will focus primarily on what you intend to burn and why.
Spending time on the WHY, helps you begin to release the connection you have with it. Burning means purging, releasing, letting go, no longer being mad and sad, deciding to go in another direction…FINALLY!
We’ll also discuss how the Burning of the item will impact your life moving forward and what you must do to prepare. You’ll have the support of all of us as you work your way thru.

Day 2

9:00 am

BURN Event on the Beach

“You will either step forward into growth or you will step back into safety.”

– Abraham Maslow

You’ll write what you want to Burn on paper that dissolves in the ocean. You’ll watch your concerns and challenges float away. This is a quiet ceremony…NO TALKING! It’s truly a cleansing.

10:00 am

The Vision Conversation

“Having a vision for your life allows you to live out of hope, rather than out of your fears”

– Stedman Graham

The conversation speaks to the question “Where do you go from here?

A new day, A new year, a new beginning?”

Your vision is your purpose for being on this planet. It pulls you. It energizes you and makes you smile. Your vision creates the future you were born to live. We’ll discuss what it takes to affirm your vision.

12:00 to
4:00 pm

Listening To The Silence

“The Solution is in the Silence.”

– Rita Ricks

You are encouraged to BE Quiet, because you have an assignment.

You must identify your vision. It’s inside you. You already have an idea of what you should be doing with your life. You just need to settle down and envision it. Or, You may already be living your vision, but there is SOOO MUCH MORE…It is in the Silence where you find solutions to remove the barriers preventing you from moving forward.

You can walk, stay in your room and journal, fall asleep. No disruptions. No phone. No TV. No talking. This is the necessary work to get you where you want to Be.

See you at 7:00!

7:00 pm

Write the Vision, Make it Plain

“Vision is seeing the future while you’re in the present.”

– Peter Brock

Charcuterie tray and wine (we provide)

The discussion is based on you sharing your Silence experience. It’s eye-opening when you describe your experience, but enlightening to hear from others.
