New Year’s Workshop Was a Success!

MewiththeWomenWorkshop

On January 30th I hosted a New Year’s workshop at One Roof in Venice Beach. I am so pleased to share that the workshop was a success! I wanted to provide women with the time and space that they needed to relax, reflect, set an intention for the way that they want to live their lives, and come up with a plan to reach each and every one of their goals.

We spent the day talking about what we want our lives to look like and we tapped into our heart’s deepest desires. We wrote in our journals, created plans for our goals, made vision boards to help our dreams become a reality, meditated, ate delicious plant-based foods, and took part in an interactive talk that I lead. It was incredibly touching to see so many women come together, open up about their fears and desires, bond, support one another, and know that they are not alone in their joys and frustrations.

I am excited to share that I will definitely be putting together more workshops in the future, so please stay tuned!

WomenCreatingVisionBoards2

It turned out to be a nice morning/afternoon, so we decided to sit outside. Here are the women creating vision boards.

JoAnnandMonicaVisionBoards

Like the retreat that I hosted in October, we ended up having lots of mother/daughter duos at the workshop! Here are JoAnn and Monica, sharing their vision boards. JoAnn is working on finding balance in her life and making more time for herself. Monica recently got married – congratulations, Monica! She and her husband Ted would like to start a family soon and they are thinking that Monica should try to get pregnant by the end of the year. Because of this, Monica wants to eat healthier and stay active so she can be in the best shape of her life when she gets pregnant and so that she can also pass on good eating/living habits to her future child(ren). I can’t wait to learn more, Monica!

LynneAnneVisionBoard

Lynne-Anne created a great vision board that covers the four main aspects of her life. In each corner of her vision board are the letters “LOVE” because everything she does is surrounded by love. I love this, Lynne-Anne!

LynneAnneRuthVisionBoards

Here is Lynne-Anne with her mom, Ruth. Ruth is retired and wanting to enjoy her life and play more. She has an adorable cat that cuddles with her, so you’ll notice the two kitties on her vision board :).

GwennaVisionBoard

Gwenna created four vision boards! She’d like to do things fully so she is working on giving everything that she does 100% of her effort. She wants to see things through to the end. She is also working on getting fit and eating healthily. I can’t wait for updates on your health journey, Gwenna!

ElizabethVisionBoard

Elizabeth created two vision boards :).

NicoleVisionBoard

Nicole has been wanting to go on a cruise to Alaska with her husband so you’ll notice that she has a picture of a cruise on the top left corner of her vision board. She also wants to be authentic; she has a top-level position at her company where she is not only the youngest employee, but she’s also the only woman and the only minority. Though she is required to dress professionally and “be polished” at work, with her hair straightened, she sees her true self as rocking an afro, smiling, and wearing a dashiki, which she does on weekends :).

VirginiaVisionBoard

You may have noticed Virginia from my last retreat – I love Virginia! She has such a warm, fun energy and she’s always open to attending these workshops and tapping into her true self. As a mom, daughter, and teacher, she is working on saying “no” more often so that she can say “yes” to herself. It’s taking some time, but I am so proud of her for finally prioritizing self-care!

PamVisionBoard

Pam is retired and loving life! She is traveling and taking the time to enjoy herself and her family. There may be something else that she wants to pursue in life, so with some encouragement from her daughter Nicole, we’ll see what life has in store for Pam!

New Year’s Workshop: Discover Your Heart’s Deepest Desires

When: Saturday, January 30th 2016 from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM

Where: One Roof, 1333 6th Ave, Venice, CA 90291

Why: You deserve to be happy and live the life of your dreams





I’ve been thinking about our new year’s tradition of making resolutions and I’ve been wondering why so many people abandon their lists so soon into the new year? I’ve also been thinking about those who have decided not to make any resolutions at all, because they feel that they’ll fail at most, if not all of them. I’d like us to get back into the spirit of believing in ourselves and knowing that we can lead lives that are exciting, fulfilling, happy, healthy, and beautiful.  For this reason, I want to invite you to join me for this workshop so that we can search our hearts to discover what it is that we truly want for ourselves and how we can achieve these goals. We’ll be exploring topics such as: How can we make our dreams a reality? What are our deepest desires? How can we learn to be happy now?

We’ll journal, create vision boards, meditate, enjoy a delicious lunch, and listen to a workshop on the importance of following our intuition and allowing it to guide us as we navigate our way to the life of our dreams. We’ll learn how to let go of past stories, emotions, and relationships that are no longer serving us and we’ll instead embrace our inner strength, independence, and courage.

Whether you’ve made a list or not this year, we’ll discuss the importance of self-care and why we need to nourish ourselves mind, body, and spirit as this is how we can live in alignment with who we really are – amazing, radiant, gorgeous women who are meant to thrive, not just survive.

As a special gift, this workshop is available for just $25 if you sign up before January 25, 2016. Afterwards, the price will increase to $45. Be sure to bring a friend who is in need of relaxation and the space to create a plan to achieve her true desires. See you there!

If you want to:

  • Get clarity on how you want to live your life
  • Discover your deepest desires
  • Enjoy the company and support of like-minded women
  • Attend a workshop on how to let go of the past and embrace the present
  • Create a vision board
  • Meditate
  • Eat delicious plant-based food

Then this workshop is for you!

In order to ensure your continued success, you’ll leave with:

  • A clear vision on how you want to live your life
  • A plan for how you’ll achieve your goals
  • A FREE 1-hour consultation with me (a $125 value)
  • A new vision board
  • A community of women who share your wants and needs
  • A deeper love for yourself
  • A sense of calm, peace, and tranquility

What Does, ‘Like a Girl’ Mean to You?

LikeAGirl

I’ve always wondered why phrases such as, “you throw like a girl,” “don’t be such a pussy,” or even, “stop being such a girl” are insults. I was a girl; I’m now a woman. And I believe in the radiant beauty, power, intuition, intelligence, and incredible strength that girls and women possess. I love being a woman. I want to help create a safer, more peaceful world where girls and women are treated with the respect that we deserve.

Always is doing their part to encourage others to think about how it makes young girls and women feel when the phrase, “like a girl” is used as an insult. Always shares, “We’re kicking off an epic battle to make sure that girls everywhere keep their confidence throughout puberty and beyond, and making a start by showing them that doing it #LikeAGirl is an awesome thing.” I can’t wait to see more people using the phrase #LikeAGirl in a positive way.

I hope that Always truly has a plan to help girls and women feel empowered, improve their self-esteem, and embrace the changes that their bodies will experience throughout their lives. I’ll admit that I love this video, but I don’t love that it could just be another way to get girls and women to buy products from Always.

In fact, I wish that Always would remove harmful chemicals from their products, and then we’d also be helping girls and women to reduce their exposure to dangerous chemicals. Until then, ladies, pick up chlorine-free pads and tampons – they’re much safer! And don’t let anyone tell you that you’re less smart, strong, or capable than any man – you’re amazing. ‪Keep doing great things #‎LikeAGirl‬.
