Space: A Goal Planning + Life Refining Workshop
With Rebecca Butler
Raise your vibration in 2018 to effortlessly realize your most desired self and your most desired life. You have that power. You and you alone. You have all the answers you seek, right inside.
In this workshop, we will meditate, journal, flow, journal, connect, grow, commit, support and dream — individually and as one.
This is the 5th annual goal planning workshop lead by Rebecca Butler. The past 4 workshops have yielded phenomenal results. Promotions, career changes, start ups, babies, marriages, new companies, new cities/countries (like Morocco!), new relationships… these are a few of the results past attendees have gleefully reported.
We are going to approach, embrace and embody the idea, the art, the science that teaches that these life shifts (i.e. refinements) can be simple. They can be easy. They can be so much less cumbersome and daunting than we paint them to be in our mind’s eye. There is a way to do this, and Rebecca will teach you how, via learned methodologies, both physical and spiritual, from multiple resources, including but not limited to, Alan Cohen, Caroline Myss, Esther Hicks, Anita Moorjani, Danielle LaPorte, Rodney Yee & Colleen Saidman, Ana Forrest, Gabrielle Bernstein and more.
Please come with an open mind and an open heart. Open to infinite possibilities. Create space to allow life to flow easily through you – without resistance or struggle, but with Grace and Ease.
1:30 – 2:00: Check in, guided meditation
2:00 – 2:15: Journaling
2:15 – 3:15: Flow (basic level flow taught to ground, clear and open energy centers to create graceful connection to inner guidance)
3:15 – 4:30: Exercises and intention setting
Prior to the workshop, you will receive homework so that time can be spared in the session, and progress can be quickly attained.

She is an E-RYT 500 with the Yoga Alliance. She is also a certified Holistic Life Coach via Alan Cohen.

On Being Human
With Jen Pastiloff
Join Jen Pastiloff in her signature workshop and see why she sells out every time!
This isn’t your typical yoga workshop nor is it about the poses, although there will be some yoga sprinkled in here and there. It’s about being human. It’s about letting go of fear. It’s about connection and telling the truth. A yoga workshop that’s not just about yoga (and can sometimes be not about yoga at all). A writing workshop for struggling writers, to-be writers, and non-writers. A dance party and a sing along for dancers, singers, klutzes, tone-deaf, actual deaf, and hard of hearing singers. A trust and love circle. A place to make shit happen. A workshop for humans.
“What are you manifesting? If I wasn’t afraid I would…? How may I serve others? Do I care too much about what people think? Who would I be if nobody told me who I was? What’s getting in my way and what can I do about it?”
Questions like this and many more will be sought out and answered in this unique workshop which truly connects the mind and body. The workshop combines body movement and writing (and has been known to have a few dance parties and singing).
All levels welcome, no yoga experience required. Expect to flow, sweat, sing, write, dance and laugh and share out loud as you let go of what is no longer serving you.
There will be much laughter. Maybe a few tears. It’s been known to change lives.
Bring an open heart. Expect to go beyond your comfort zone. Come see why Jen travels around the world with this workshop. Bring journal/open heart/sense of humor. This experience is about life: unpredictable, sometimes messy, beautiful, human.
Date: Saturday, February 10
Time: 2:00 – 5:00pm
Early Bird Pricing until December 17th of $99.
Tickets are non-refundable. Space is limited.
