Virtual Retreat TOMORROW

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.—Anaïs Nin

Imagine three hours devoted to self-care and personal growth without having to leave the comfort of your own home. This is an opportunity to take your inner artist on an extended date.

Tomorrow we’re broadcasting the Spring Virtual Retreat from the Pink Palace (my tiny DC condo) with a live audience from noon-3pm ET and you’re invited!

This Virtual Retreat is a NEW mini-retreat focused on awakening from winter’s hibernation and blooming into spring.

This 3-hour LIVE adventure includes:

  • opening and closing gatherings
  • seated yoga for all levels
  • mindfulness tools for everyday life
  • creative play in our journals
  • a colorful PDF playbook filled with tips, tools, recipes, and more coming 4/13
  • a jazzy playlist
  • a 25% off TranquiliT discount code
  • a private virtual retreat Facebook group
  • an easy phone or video connection via Zoom
  • a recording of the event to retreat as often as you’d like
  • and more!

Slow down, shake up your Saturday routine, learn new skills, and connect with like-hearted ladies. Return with what’s most meaningful to you this spring. Peruse FAQs, testimonials, and YOUR former retreat photos.

If you can’t join us live or will miss some of it, you’ll receive the replay within 48 hours.

As always, a portion of all proceeds benefits the work of Pigs & Pugs Project. Please let me know if you have any questions about the experience. We’d love to have you with us! Bisous. x


Here’s what previous participants had to say: 

I can’t thank you enough for such a clearly thought out virtual retreat. It was such a blessing not to need to get dressed, drive to an airport, not have to put on make-up, and to be comfortable in my own home without distraction.

Participating has reminded me how good it feels to slow down and give myself the time to recharge. Feeling a new spark of creativity.

I have to say, being the introvert that I am and loving my quiet time, this was something I would do again and again. Being in my own familiar space, relaxed but at the same time connected with everyone. You thought of everything!

The hallmark of an enlightening retreat, presentation, email, or post are the moments a heart is touched, a thought is planted, or a direction changed. I realize that the virtual retreat was more powerful than I thought it would be. In fact, it’s helping me to change direction, well, actually, to reconnect to my core being.

Tranquil Treasures

We are treasure chests with more jewels inside than we can imagine.—Ifeanyi Enoch Onuoha

Did you know that there’s a private collection of tranquility tools over on my website?

Each tool—from mp3s, to yoga practices, to guided meditations, to downloadable manifestos and toolkits—is chosen to assist you on your journey.

You’ll find new inspiration stockpiled in this treasure trove from time to time. Soon you’ll see a “style” heading with tips on mixing and matching using my “uniform” (TranquiliT 2in1 fitted top and capri leggings) as an example, along with a yoga video, and self-care checklist.

If there’s something you’d like to see added, please let me know. Thanks for your reading and listening!

To access the treasures, sign up for my Love Notes sent every few weeks. Bisous. x
