Moving Forward: Breathing Room is all about taking in fresh air, making a clean start, creating a great new year. This three-session workshop series uses breath as a metaphor and as a physical experience for exploring how we make space for ourselves and for what’s important to us.
Session 1 – Breathe Out:
Make room for the new as you release old tensions, stories, and habits that offer too many constraints and not enough freedom.
Session 2 – Breathe In:
As you expand your rib cage in the physical sense you can also make space for new ideas, fresh perspectives, and renewed energy.
Session 3 – The Spaces In Between:
There’s a moment’s pause between the inhale and the exhale-a perfect place to explore the restoration and renewal possible in unlikely spaces.
Each session in the series offers games, movement, and quiet time for individual reflection. You’ll find personal insight and benefit from the wisdom and experience of the people around you.
Early bird price per session $25, $30 after January 6
Early bird price for all THREE sessions $60, $75 after January 6

Moving Forward in Uncertain Times is a dynamic workshop that will provide “tools for transformation”—strategies for finding stability, gaining clarity, and navigating change.
- Identify reliable resources—people, places, and things already in your world that can be consistently relied upon to assist in navigating change.
- Gain perspective—clarify not only where you want to go, but also what’s right in front of you right now.
- Get into action—go forward with specific strategies and actions for moving toward a richer, fuller, more satisfying life.
I read an odd little horoscope today, which said that it’s time for me to pay attention to details. Fair enough, but then came the suggestion that I should consider measuring progress in inches. Oh my! Measuring progress in inches! Not such a great prospect for someone who just taught a workshop called “Moving Forward.”
On reflection, I suppose it’s the only way to make progress—one step at a time. I’m inclined to take on projects that are worked in tiny increments. Projects like sewing and knitting and felting and helping people change their lives. Not to mention the volunteer work, being on committees and boards. A friend used to call it “church time.” When a committee meets monthly or quarterly, it can take years to get anything completed.
Oddly enough, I tried to drive into town today, a 35‑mile trip one way. It took an hour to go about one mile, so when I got past the bottleneck, I headed back home. The delay was caused by major flooding …more
