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.

And we’re off . . .

Sunday night we launched Year of Tranquility and I couldn’t be more excited about our group—open, kind, nurturing, fun!

The above shot shows the Pink Palace set up with many computers, twinkle lights, stargazer lilies, and dog beds.

The photos below were shared on social media and capture the set ups of ladies in New York, Seattle, Oklahoma, and spots in between.

We still have a few ladies trickling in so if you’d like to join us, it’s not too late. You can find all the information here.

I’m truly honored to take this yearlong journey with so many of you. Thank you for your support and love. Bisous. x

Year of Tranquility Starts *Tomorrow*

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful that the risk it took to bloom.—Anais Nin

Tomorrow evening we begin Year of Tranquility.

For the past 20 years I’ve been a seeker, teacher, explorer, and student of living life with more tranquility. This yearlong program is a piece of my heart and life’s work.

Remember Suzuki’s quote, “You’re perfect as you are. And you could use a little improvement.”

This program is a celebration of all that IS right with you. It also incorporates tools to help you continue to flourish and grow. Think of it as a garden where you can bloom.

Daily we’ll connect via our community forum (not Facebook) to share ideas, ask questions, and explore the practice of our monthly theme.

Weekly you’ll receive inspiration straight to your inbox to keep you connected to the month’s theme.Monthly we’ll dive deep into a tranquility-themed topic via an online video call and accompanying PDF to learn new tools for living with ease, achieving your dreams, and finding meaning along the way.

Seasonally we’ll connect via TDJ Lives and private after parties plus half-day retreats in the spring and fall.

Filled with inspiration from my work as a yoga teacher, writer, designer, and therapist, this offering is a lifestyle adventure into becoming more of who you are. Who you want to be. And celebrating all that entails.

If you seek deeper self-understanding, enjoy reflection, love learning, appreciate beauty, and want to bloom within a collective of individuals, I’d love to have you join us!
