Finding Peace and Purpose in 2015


autumn leafSaturday, October 17: What’s standing in your way?

Note: This workshop is full. If you’d like to put your name on a waiting list, please contact us, and we’ll let you know if space becomes available. Thank you for your interest and understanding!


Are you living an “if only” life? Stopped by obstacles you wish would go away? Lacking confidence about your chances for success? Plagued with second-guessing your every impulse or idea? Autumn is all about letting your true colors show. This workshop will help you identify anything that’s standing in your way so you can claim the freedom and purpose of being the real you.

This workshop will help you…

• Make decisions about what you do and don’t want in your life

• Identify the beliefs that are standing in your way of moving ahead

• Claim the strengths necessary to overcome these obstacles and assess your own abilities

• Let go of clutter in your life, both physically and mentally

• Take bold or baby steps toward a dream or new life path

• Understand why you are more powerful than your fears

• See that everything is working toward your good

• Discover the gifts of good-bye

Drawing on autumn’s energy of letting go, this workshop will give you a sense of clarity and a path to move forward.

Each day will include Tending Your Inner Garden’s signature blend of discussion, small group interaction, time alone for reflection and activities to help you dig deeper. Plus, you’ll experience laughter, light, and a sense of community.

Tending Your Inner Garden workshops provide a gentle and supportive way for you to look at your life honestly, draw life lessons, and live with greater creativity, energy and purpose. Participants tell us we put them at ease quickly and help them connect with themselves and with others at a deep level.

As always, Tending Your Inner Garden workshops also help build a sense of community among women who are on a path of spiritual seeking and personal growth. This is an opportunity to make new connections and friendships that can last far beyond the workshop.
