Is This the Year of … You?
Our lives are total gifts. Remembering this opens us to shedding old ways, to being found anew and alive in our lives, and to making something joyful for ourselves, in big and small ways, every day.

Your Invitation ~
Every year contains a new invitation for each of us to stay present and fully engage in the gift of our lives.
I created the Year of You so that we might delight in opening the gifts of our lives together.
What is the conversation you are having with life this year?
What new incarnation beckons you towards a future horizon?
But wait a minute. It’s not the first of the year. I hear you. It’s not. It’s the end of February/first of March. And if you are anything like me, the excitement surrounding the new year and my new plans has waned a bit. I find my enthusiasm for the promise held in a new year dulled by the day to day responsibilities of caregiving and hyjacked by the unexpected twists and turns the year has delivered in these first 7-8 weeks.
This is why I need the Year of You Session II ~ R IG H T N O W!!
And it is why you need it, too!
Because we have dreams and plans for our lives, while life has it’s own set of dreams and plans for us. Discerning our path in light of these different pulls is THE conversation of our lives.
FOR ME THIS LOOKS like tapping into the sustainable SPRING of energy within so that I may grow a thriving coaching practice that delivers the highest quality of guidance and inspiration to my clients WHILE overseeing the final stages of a home construction project; navigating three teenage boys and their dreams to be collegiate golfers, dip their toes into the dating scene, and pursuing a non-traditional educational path for my son given the extreme toxicity of his childhood cancer treatment; walking with my mother through her new breast cancer diagnosis (thank you 2018!); and nurturing a vibrant relationship with my husband as we approach 25 years of marriage!!
What does it look like for you?
The Year of You Session II is a live, in-person retreat specifically designed to provide YOU with S P A C E to listen to the invitation your life holds and to claim the promise of its possibility for yourself.
Our journey begins Tuesday evening, March 6th at 5:30 p.m. and ends Wednesday evening, March 7th at 5:00 p.m.
Our gathering place is the conference room at The Ronald McDonald House in Augusta, Georgia. This place has been hand picked for the starting point of our journey. Here, we will take you out of your daily comings and goings and ground you in your own life’s essence. Here, we will turn your attention to the quality of your own presence in your life and your relationships in the world. Here, we will listen to the dreams inviting you to bring them forth. Here, we will walk into the future, which has already found you 365 days from now, amazed by your own dream realized, however tiny or large.
This is why we must start now because now is always the only time to make something in our lives.
Our journey continues the day the retreat ends. When we leave a retreat like this, we are inspired by our own potential, and yet we are often confused about how to maintain our commitment and devotion to realizing something for ourselves in our daily lives. This is why I have also developed 13 weeks of beautiful questions designed to help us stay in the conversation with our lives and identify the necessary next steps in realizing our dreams and not losing ourselves in our daily caregiving, a Facebook group, and bi-monthly video conference and recorded calls to help us integrate and translate the space we open during our retreat experience into our daily lives. And I hope you LOVE all of this so much that you will join me in committing to this way of living in relationship to our own POSSIBILITIES for AN ENTIRE YEAR. So mark your calendars and join us for the Year of You Session III (June 5-6, 2018), Year of You Session IV (September 11-12), and Year of You Session V (November 27-28).
You do not have to go on Sabbatical for a year. You don’t have to wait for anything.
Everything you need is already right here: your own ability to find yourself anew in the world each day.
All you have to do is decide … This is the Year of You!
I am here. I am here. I am here.
Are you ready to claim it?
Yes. Yes. Yes.
Your Investment ~ The Transactional Cost
Your beautiful self, a day off of work, a babysitter, your energy, your desire, and $435.
Your payment includes:
Six live sessions hand designed to guide You through the process of opening space in your life and listening to the invitation awaiting you in the coming year;
A journal to capture the teachings held in the retreat, your dreams, and your plans to integrate this creative potential into your lives;
A beautiful setting;
A delicious meal;
A like minded group of women;
13 weekly emails after the retreat to continue inspiring, encouraging, grounding, and leading you into the future you are creating for yourself; and
3 monthly conference calls for assistance to help navigate the obstacles that might arise along the way.
The six live sessions and the monthly calls will be recorded so that you may listen to them again at your leisure.
Oh, and if you want to pamper yourself a little more, stay tuned for an announcement of a special rate at a nearby hotel. I highly recommend you give yourself this additional space, but it is NOT a requirement. You are free to create a space for yourself and your friends in your own homes. Whatever makes this easiest for you to participate. That is the idea.
Your Return ~ The Transformational Potential
This is an investment in the gift of you. Your presence, your dreams, your gifts. The things only you can bring into this world.
This is an investment in your spark, remembering it, rekindling it, and reimagining its aliveness in your life.
Imagine your life 365 days from now.
Imagine each day bringing new depth and richness to your being, new adventures, new companionship, new camaraderie, and new creative endeavors, all while inhabiting your life.
Imagine having the space for you in your daily life.
What if this is the year I … ?
Close your eyes. Feel the pull of your future you calling, ready to meet you in the space you are creating together.
I am here. I am here. I am here. Yes. Yes. Yes.
One last question ~
This year may not be the season for a big leap in your life. I understand. I have been there, but no matter the season in which I have found myself, there has always been an invitation within that season to explore and deepen my own presence in the world.
This is why it is so important to create the space in our lives to discern the personal invitation being whispered to each of us in each year.
In what small way might I open the space within me to nurture and prepare the soil for my future self?
Where ever you are, remember
I know who I am. I know what I am. I know how I serve.
I am here. I am here. I am here.
Yes. Yes. Yes.
It is for you to know.
Join Us ~
I hope you decide to join us on this amazing journey to accept the invitation this Year holds just for You. I am holding the image of a world infused with your deepening and enriching presence blessing us with that twinkle in your eye and all you have to offer. If I can help guide you in opening the invitation awaiting you in the coming year, I would love that.

May you experience the gift of You in this Year.
P.S. If you want to join us on for the Year of You but cannot make the Session II Retreat on March 6-7, please do not let that keep you from saying Yes. Yes. Yes. to the invitation awaiting you in this year. There is always Plan B! (One which I love just as much as Plan A.) Plan B includes all of the benefits of Plan A absent your shining presence ~ which we will miss! But we will send you the recorded version of this retreat to access online in your own time and with a posse of your own friends, and you can jump directly into the 13 weekly emails and monthly calls alongside the rest of us. Plus, you will get a little goodie box in the mail. Email me HERE and let me know if you want in on Plan B!
P.P.S. If you want to keep the momentum of the Year of You going at the end of the 13 weeks, I have designed a Year of You to be a year long program!! Stay tuned as I announce 2 additional retreats, each followed by 13 weeks of guidance via weekly emails and monthly calls, for each season of 2018. So, if you want to jump in for our June Retreat + 13 weeks of post retreat guidance, please email me HERE and let me know!!!
