Kelly Reid

Spring Forward with Resilience

Kelly Reid learned from her parents early on how to put a problem in perspective; assess the situation; and get yourself moving forward. Her real life has put those principles to the test. Kelly will talk about the ability she developed and that each of us has to adapt and grow.

Heather Pleune

Spring Forward with Energy

Heather Pleune, like many women, felt like she was giving and caring from a well that was running dry. Heather will share with us how she found and feels more loved/loving and enlivened by the energy work that is her passion and is available to and through each of us.

You're invited to Follow Your Heart: an opportunity for women in our community to share their stories and for you to contemplate yours.

 

Dana Murphy felt a call to create and carry out a "bucket list" that was both enjoyable and achievable. She'll tell us why and how she's pursuing the life experiences she desires and about the midlife career change she made.

 

Ann Sassano found that following her heart meant allowing her adult children to follow theirs — in ways she hadn't expected. Doing so opened her own heart in amazing ways, including important work to support others with eating disorders.

"We're real women like you who are sharing from the deep journeys we've been on — what we've learned through significant personal experience and extensive training and study. Our hope is to now help you on your own path to greater well-being and wholeness."

Do you trust in the Universe?  Two extraordinary women will help show us how and why we should ... and what it took for each of them to finally answer "yes."  Come be enlightened by their stories and to contemplate your own...

Amor Fati (“Love your fate") is boldly emblazoned in a tattoo on Peg Chaidez's right forearm. It's an adage she believes in and has learned to live by in the years since her son Owen was born with serious physical challenges. Peg will talk to us about embracing what life brings to you and the power of Love when you do.

Having anxiety attacks anytime she played classical violin on stage was a problem for a professional musician to have. But Jennifer Lowe says now it was the best thing that happened to her. A performing dream of a different kind was calling her name. Jennifer will share the timing, grace and "magic" we can all experience.
