Are you experiencing major mid-life changes, feeling uncertain about what’s next?

Do you want a life more colorful, vibrant, and satisfying than ever before?

Are you getting the response you want at home?

Do you feel invisible in a youth-obsessed world?

In this fun, informative workshop, Nancy Burns L Ac and Cherryll Sevy will share 4 keys to better appreciate your fabulous feminine essence and embrace the power and possibilities within the woman you are!

  • Why the polarities of the Masculine and Feminine so important, especially in your relationships?
  • How to release the Power of the Feminine to improve your life
  • Become more comfortable resting in the “being” instead of the “doing”
  • Create “Your Personal Oasis” in a sensual desert

Several fun exercises will help you learn to peel off the layers we all create and allow you to lay down your armor to approach your life and the world around you in new, fascinating ways.

For most of us who have worked and succeeded in the highly masculine world, we’ve allowed much of our beautiful feminine energies to lie dormant deep within.

We’ll help you rediscover your “essensual” self and create a life more flavorful, soft and intoxicating! You will leave with a renewed spirit, as well as some great practical ideas.

Hourglass Workshops Presents…Book Conversations 2014

Our 2014 Winter Series is based on the book The Hidden Lamp by Florence Capwell–a collection of stories of Buddhist women from the time of the Buddha to the present day. Each story is accompanied by reflections of a contemporary woman and her personal responses to bring these old stories alive for readers today. Each offers a question to spark further reflection and inquiry and a personal meditation. These are treasured stories of women ancestors who forged their own paths to understanding and enlightenment.

You will recognize yourself in the experiences of these timeless stories, as well as discovering answers to questions you’ve never before thought to ask. You’ll feel more connected, inspired and nourished as only a good conversation with women friends can offer.

Nancy Burns and Cherryll Sevy, co-creators of Hourglass Workshops, invite you to attend a series of 4 Sunday conversations. Join other like-minded women to share ideas, insights and reflections of these stories and how we can add to the wisdom of women through the ages.
