– Getting Your Mojo Back –

Have you lost your mojo?
If you are feeling depleted, overwhelmed, overworked, stressed-out, tired, bored or lethargic, you may have lost your mojo.

If you’re interested in learning how to reclaim your mojo, please join us for the next Be Inspired Women’s Circle which will meet Saturday, May 21, 1 pm-2:30 pm. You will learning positive action steps to help you reclaim your mojo whenever you feel it’s lost. 

The Circle’s agenda always includes an inspiring or fun topic, sharing in conversation, journaling, and I’ll be giving a guided meditation to help take your minds off any challenges you may be having. I hope you will attend, and feel free to invite a friend. 

I will send a confirmation and Zoom link to the meeting to those who will attend on May 20. If you have any questions, please let me know.

This Circle is for you, if you are a woman who longs to:

  • Be inspired and inspire others.
  • Share a safe space with other women.
  • Feels comfortable sharing challenges.
  • Release your inner critic.

This Circle provides a safe, supportive community for exploring viewpoints, authentic voice, passions, dreams, choices, calling/purpose, spirituality, challenges, relationships, parenting, and your brilliance!

The Be Inspired Women’s Circles are 90-minute group sessions. The group experience will help guide you to quiet your inner critic and move into a more fulfilling and inspired life. We usually meet the third Saturday of the month.

If you are new the group, let me know what you are hoping to gain from the program.

Join Me in 2021 Writing Workshops

I’m excited to announce that I’ll be offering fun and magical writing workshops on Zoom. My goal is to offer a creative release for the tensions we’ve all been feeling this past year through writing and journaling workshops.

My Writing Story

I’ve always loved writing. I’ve kept journals for most of my life. My professional writing experience began as a newspaper reporter and freelance writer in Los Angeles. I also wrote for a variety of business clients in my public relations business for almost 40 years. Most recently I collaborated and published a book with two other life coaches, Lessons from a Fall, Three Powerful Women and Their Stories of Transformation.

I love to write and I know you will too!

What people are saying about our workshops and women’s circles:

I can truly say that meeting you has been a blessing and an answer to my prayers! I sincerely enjoyed being part of the women’s circle and meeting the wonderful women who were there! The discussion we had around leading an inspired life was filled with so many thoughtful examples. It enabled me to be aware of the many ways one CAN lead an inspired life…choosing to find ways.  I thoroughly enjoyed the meditation journey you led us on into the future! It was beautiful! I loved the gentle pace of it, which allowed me to really be able to visualize the pieces of the experience more clearly. The colors I saw were so vivid, too!  Thank you so much, and I can’t wait until your next circleI’m also very excited about having you as my life coach!”
