As winter progresses, there’s nothing more appealing than the idea of “Comfort and Joy”…simultaneously! Yet, often after the “hoopla” of holidays fades, our spirits also seem to lose their glow. Housebound, isolated, or affected by lack of light, joy seems a distant memory, and comfort becomes stagnation. Which often makes me dread the coming months.
Yet, something’s changed, since I completed the Soul Restoration course. I handle things a bit differently, as I’ve taken the time to discover what my own, unique soul craves. Some of my own needs are these: connection with others, encouraging people to move forward in hope and purpose, and the anticipation of future events.
So, I’m putting all of that into this next retreat – where YOU will be encouraged by Melody Ross’ “Soul Restoration” curriculum. Taking time for introspective journaling, creative and thought provoking multi-media presentations, and creating tools, to remind and affirm you; YOU will connect with like-minded women, as you learn life-changing tools to benefit your own walk on the path of life.
My hope is that you, too, will anticipate this gathering, and join us in a comfy, cozy home full of hospitality, creativity, yummy meals and the warmth of new acquaintances. My hope is that you discover what brings you true comfort, and true joy.
In this empowering workshop, we will write the story of what we have overcome in life and how we will choose to guide our life in the future by continuing to climb every mountain and jump over every hurdle to live our dreams.
Every heroic woman has had to overcome adversity, challenges and failures…one common trait in all heroines is that they have all chosen to look their difficulties in the face and move forward toward their purpose anyway.
We will be creating a deck of SHE DID IT ANYWAY® cards, each telling the story of our own difficult challenges, and our resolve to live the life we want to live in spite of our challenges.
This course can also be done as an art journal, each page with a personal SHE DID IT ANYWAY® story and art that corresponds with it.
Soul Restoration is a method of helping each woman become reacquainted with her deepest self by remembering and reuniting with her inner “Truth-teller”. She will be helped to discern truth from lies that hold her back and make her feel like less than she is… to remember her dreams, her potential, her gifts and talents, all the possibilities and unique answers for her life (because it is different for everyone). This curriculum is intended to enable each woman to find and the keep the bravery she needs to stay joyfully true to her own path.
This class has been proven to be an effective and enjoyable process that helps every woman to really think about and hear her own soul again… to help her remember what brings her the most joy, to know of and remember all of the things she is good at and that make her heart sing…to get back on track and to unleash the courage and motivation to stay on track… to reunite with her soul.
Soulful living requires bravery…and bravery helps put aside voices that are confusing, judgmental and opinionated. The Soul Restoration Curriculum is intended to continue long after the course is completed… giving each woman a set of skills and beautiful tools that will carry her throughout her life.
Truth Cards have been a part of Brave Girls Club from the beginning, and we have seen thousands of lives of women from all over the world (including ourselves!) healed in little and big ways from the powerful little truths on each card.
The idea for Truth Cards came as a way to overpower the awful script that sometimes runs in our head, preventing our souls from feeling whole or healed. Truth cards are little messages of love and truth that are written directly to our souls….telling us the TRUTH when we are believing words that are keeping us from believing the love and truth.
In this workshop, we will use pages of pre-written “truths” pasted to different kinds of cards to create “Truth Cards”. Each participant will leave the class having made several truth cards for herself.
Sometimes it is just a few true and beautiful words that give us all of the hope that we need to keep going…and just a FEW true words really can make all of the difference in the world…
