We work. We love. We run households and we run businesses. Day in and day out, we juggle. A lot. Meetings and emails, school plays and snow days, grocery shopping, laundry, friends’ birthdays, and our own anniversaries — and everything in between.
Basically, we’re in overdrive all the time, often sacrificing our personal well-being, and getting more than a little out of touch with our innermost selves. Amazingly, no matter how much we do and how well we do it, we often feel like we should be doing more — and doing it better.
It’s time to take a day to pause, reconnect, and recharge — to thrive.
Join four incredible teachers who know a little something about how to thrive in the midst of the whirlwinds of career, home, and community, while still carving out space for our personal lives. You will learn strategies and practices for creating inner shifts that lead to more joy and ease in everything you do.
