Do you want to be part of an amazing experience? Come to the Wild Women Symposium the weekend of April 1-3, 2016 at The Leonardo in Salt Lake City, UT. People keep asking me about this event. Well I am here to tell you about it. There are over 20 classes to choose from, classes that teach about love, life and light! Every class is unique and experiential. There are meditations, free readings and a beautiful energy where women feel welcomed and inspired to open up and share their own gifts. The first time I attended this event I was blown away. I healed a deep childhood issue, I received a Money Reading from Beth Ann Merrick that I am still incorporating into my life today. I joined in drum circles, in singing and dancing (not required) I just love movement! I met some amazing women! MY TRIBE. Last but not least, I left there inspired and ready to take on the world. I will be teaching “Transformation Dreaming” on Saturday morning, you won’t want to miss it. Hope to see all you beautiful, powerful wild women there.

Our theme for March is “Coming Home to Ourselves.” Coincidentally, we just facilitated our retreat of the same name.
So, what does it mean to come home to oneself?
Well, on our retreats we always walk a labyrinth in a contemplative manner. As we enter the labyrinth, we shed all of our outer busy lives, as a snake sheds its skin. There are many twists and turns in a labyrinth, just as there are many twists and turns in life. At times we may feel that we’re almost there, only to find ourselves far away from where we expected to be. Such is life.
The place in the center holds the treasure. The place in the center is home. We wander and wander, we seek and we contemplate, and then suddenly we’re there. Home.
A few nights ago, I witnessed the most beautiful thing. I was invited to a church choir concert by a friend. This was no ordinary concert. Four different churches from different faiths were invited to sing, along with the very talented Westminster College Chamber Singers.
As I arrive at the Cottonwood Heights Presbyterian Church these amazing children ages 8 to 14 are playing the most incredible piece on their violins. I later found out they were taught the Suzuki Method, where they learn to play by ear at a very young age. Each Choir then sings one to two songs, very true to their specific religion but all singing the Universal message of worship and love. My ears were in heaven. The young adults from Westminster College displayed their years of training by singing four songs and showcasing soloists that made you want to fall to your knees and cry. To conclude the concert and with the direction of Bruce Avery, my friend’s dad, all the choirs stood up and sang “The Lord’s Prayer”. I could hear and feel the roaring sounds from beneath my feet. The power in their voices made me feel like I was in a safe place and nothing could harm me, and if it did, so what, I would die completely content and peacefully. If that wasn’t enough there was one last song where all choirs sang accompanied by the organ and the beautiful children violinists. A gathering like that can restore faith where one has lost it. I was so very blessed to have witnessed it!
With everything going on in this world, hope and faith sneak in at the most opportune time. Music is the one UNIFIER of all faiths and religions. Feeling the power of something greater than your self is truly amazing. Whether you are religious or not, find something that moves you, something that can bring you to tears and then you will know what is truly important in life.
WORD PLAY: Since I love playing with dream and synchronicity, let’s play with the word “unifier”. I thought uniter was a word but didn’t find it in the English dictionary, which led me to unifier. I look at this word and think of “One Fire” which then makes me think of “One Passion”. What do you think of?
Note: I was so in the moment I didn’t get a chance to record such an amazing concert, so below is a couple of videos I found on youtube of the Westminster College Chamber Singers and Rocky Mountain Strings just to give you an idea. Enjoy!
