“We are stardust, we are golden and we’ve got to get ourselves back to the garden.”  ~Joni Mitchell

Astrophysicist Neil degrasse Tyson tells us we really are made of stardust. What this means to me is we can shine from within and the garden we need to get back to is our creativity. When we tend to it, our own starlight shines the way to joy and prosperity.
In this short workshop:

  • Learn some ways to make creativity more conveniently accessible
  • Experience an exercise that exalts the mundane and makes your existence a little more poetic even if your creativity is stuck.
  • Go away with solutions to feeling overwhelmed, resistance, distracted immobilized, fearful and prone to being derailed when you compare yourself to others.


Caroline Andrews, Facilitating Sacred Circle 

Caroline is a Women’s Healing Facilitator and shares the keys to pleasure, health, and loving relationships for women, especially those over 40. She helps women to become fully empowered, take full ownership of their lives, and create amazing relationships with themselves and others while using pleasure to power all aspects of who they are and what they want with her signature programs. 

She teaches women how to live a more pleasure-filled life in many of the events she hosts including Sistership Circles, holistic skin clinics, and monthly healing bonfires, to name just a few.  “I offer custom signature programs for women and men to have conscious, loving relationships.  I create a place that provides safety to create, love, dance, laugh, cry or just be.  It’s a place where your authentic self is always celebrated and a place you can open up to share desires, thoughts and feelings.

Hawaiian Chanting with Nancy O’Fallon
Hawaiian Huna is the cultural wisdom and spirituality of the ancient Hawaiians. My “Huna and Sacred Ceremony” workshops teach the principles and spiritual empowerment of Huna and include: Hawaiian chanting, The H’oponopono forgiveness process, Visualization and guided imagery, Working with the natural elements of earth, fire, water, and air to create positive results and healing. Through guided imagery my students have opportunities for release and transformation. Students take away tools and strategies to help them maintain daily habits of positive forward movement.

Token Gift & Self-Care Tips and Handouts from Judy Ann Foster

Judy Ann Foster ~ True Creativity Within
Creativity and Illumination with Soul Collage®
We will explore and illuminate our inner landscapes through the creation and reading of our own personal Soul Collage® cards. Soul Collage® is an expressive arts process through which participants create collage images on cards that reflect aspects of our self and soul.  We then listen to the wisdom of these cards as they speak out to us. We weave these worlds together in the warm circle of community.
