A cairn is an impermanent human-made stack of stones.
They have been used to mark a path and to set boundaries.

As the world opens and pandemic precautions and restrictions lessen, we have what may be a once in a lifetime opportunity. We can choose to take a purposeful pause; to look back, to examine our experiences, to honor all our emotions and acknowledge our grief AND to look forward with hope. In this workshop you will have the space to reflect and to begin to think about next steps with discernment and self-efficacy, leading you towards a new way of being.

Our time together will foster connection and create a supportive environment for naming and embodying feelings, reflection, and taking the risk to imagine what is possible for each of us and the world we inhabit. Surrounded by the beauty and tranquility that is MBTS, participants will harvest their experiences and integrate new discoveries. In this sacred and safe setting, you can embrace opportunities to learn, to reclaim your personal narratives and to re-imagine your way forward.

She built a successful company with her partners which embodied their values and was cherished by their loyal employees. Creating a Center of Excellence, for employee and organizational development gave her an opportunity to pass on her learnings and experience.
