It has long been in the planning to have a subscription service that will allow people to sign up for weekly inspirational messages, as well as bi-weekly lessons in techniques they can use to direct their lives in a positive way. It will contain ways that they can engage in the synchronicities in life that seem to come so easily to some. With this in mind, I thought of ways to get this put into action. It seemed overwhelming with all of the other projects I have going on right now. Then, as I was mindlessly enjoying a beautiful day outside, it came to me that I could invite people to share my space for a couple of days and begin the process in a small way.
Thus, the Divine Goddess Retreat was born. It will only accommodate 20 women for the initial meeting. I sat back to think of what I would want to hear about if I were attending. First, I would like to hear someone speak who had gone through the fire and was living that magical life that was better than they had ever dreamed they would be living. I had a speaker that popped into my mind. She had been on my radio show and was eager to join in on the fun. Then, I decided I would like to have someone with proven techniques for adding enjoyment to our lives as well as techniques that could be utilized on those days where we are not always up to our best. I called on another friend who was eager to spend an extended session with all of the ladies in the retreat.
With two of the speakers decided, I then thought of the topics I could address, but there were still some missing elements. I went to a local shop that I was unfamiliar with but had been suggested to me. The two women have extensive knowledge about crystals and essential oils and combined with what I already knew of crystals and aromatherapy, and I thought that would also be a very informative couple of sessions. The young ladies were very agreeable, so I had my four sessions filled.
Then to get to the more practical aspects of creating the agenda, providing the food, and making sure that there was space for everyone. I had to consider alternative plans in case of rain, which was easily accomplished. The configuration of web pages to get that information out was accomplished without a great deal of effort on my part since I have an amazingly astute web designer. Since forming the bones of the retreat, I have had a couple of people approach me that they would be interested in doing a presentation if I need them too, so I have decided that this will be the first of the Divine Goddess Retreats, and will hopefully be offering one every spring and fall.
If you are at all interested in learning more about the inaugural retreat, I have given you the link to get to all of the information. There is a form that can get you registered early for a special rate. It is the only time the retreat will be offered at this price, so I hope you are able to get in before the deadline. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to phone me at 765-639-5930.
If anyone wants to bring a sleeping bag or tent and extend the stay overnight, that is an option I will offer, especially if you are coming from out of town. This is going to be a weekend of fun, learning, relaxation, and networking with others who sometimes get caught up in their busy lives and forget to take time for themselves.
After the retreat, I will be posting a “secret” group page for those Divine Goddesses who attend so we can all keep in touch. I hope to see you there.
