This year, the Art of Breakthrough Retreat Intensives came into reality...and I held my first two in-residence workshop retreats. ...They were (and are) LIFE CHANGING for those who attend...
What amazes me most is the depth of pain some people have endured and how a true readiness to learn how to emerge from the struggle opens the doorway to RELIEF, BEAUTY, and JOY (even in people suffering tremendous grief and loss)!
My newest Art of Breakthrough SoulArts Training Retreat is - in my experience - as or more powerful than the private one-on-one spiritual retreats that originally gained SoulArts' reputation as one of the top 10 best spiritual retreats.
This newest SoulArts addition, and 3-night small group retreat allows me to work with more people, and at a lower price offering. This is very helpful as I can no longer keep up with requests for coming to experience the SoulArts Process of Awakening (tm) that I have founded and teach -- and yet I remain committed to the very small personalized in-residence apprenticeship approach to my work and continue to avoid the larger venues or institutional approaches. Its so important to my work that it be grounded and offered in a real-life setting where we share living during the retreat process itself.
One of the most stunning blessings in my lifework is those I meet who come to me in despair or utter loss -- and who (years later) are still in my life, but now, as one who is apprenticing and sharing the SoulArts Process and their own unique gift and path!
It is an immense joy to have those who have come to work with me from a place of confusion, stuckness, or loss, grow in this SoulArts Process of Awakening and come to share with me years later, what it is like to be with people in deep despair and loss as they find and come to this unique SoulArts Doorway of inner healing and wisdom! It makes my own hard inner work more than worth the struggles I've too lived...
This year, two very special women - Sally van Osch and Amy Barkley - each from two previous cohorts of my 2-Year SoulArts Advanced Apprenticeship Program, flew into Ojai long distance, to help me set up (aka clean, scrub, rearrange, shop, menu plan) and then help host and assist at these first two Art of Breakthrough Retreats.
Thank You SALLY & AMY For Your Loving Puja!
Sally van Osch - SoulArts Cohort I
TO SALLY & AMY: I could not have done this work without you here! ...Your personal journeys that brought you to working with me - and now your own emerging gifts and love back to the SoulArts "Familia", is a precious honoring indeed!
Amy Barkley - SoulArts Cohort II
I am blessed to have you -- and the many other SoulArts Patrons and helpers share in this completely unanticipated life work and transformation.
AND I INVITE YOU ...and look forward to meeting and sharing this awesome self-healing artistry with all those sincerely called to self-love healing and the art of following their life's unique genius!
In Deep Gratitude!
