Courageous Brave Souls is my dream of a Sisterhood of Women helping other women – a healing Sisterhood – as it serves as the fundraising arm of my Lupus Autoimmune Foundation. So know that when you come to a retreat, not only will you be restoring your soul, but you will be helping another Soul- a woman in need. A beautiful circle of love – a healing Sisterhood of love and support.
You will be greatly moved by the comfort and tranquility of your surroundings and the generosity, love and hospitality known along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Many souls have come to the Mississippi Gulf Coast to rest and restore here for generations. Retreat is Sept . 18 – 24, 2017, at the popular William J. Kelley retreat center located in Bay St. Louis on 40 acres one block from the Gulf of Mexico AND at Horn Island one of the beautiful barrier Islands. The perfect place to get unplugged from society and plugged into your soul.

We will have lots of laughter, great food and make wonderful meaningful art- unique pottery experiences at Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art Pottery Studio and lithograph carving and printing reminiscent of that of Walter Anderson to use in your art and journaling. We are extremely excited and blessed that WAMA – The Walter Anderson Museum of Art has partnered with us and offered a once in a lifetime opportunity to walk the walk of famed artist Walter Anderson on the primitive beautiful barrier island – Horn Island, escorted by one of the Anderson family members. Camping overnight for 1-2 nights – chosen by those who register, you will experience photography opportunities, plein air art opportunities,and peaceful solitude of communing with nature and journaling. Horn Island has inspired artists and writers for decades and it is truly an experience that is to be savored. Participants will be taken over by schooner, sleep in tents, have gourmet meals delivered by boat and experience nightly campires. You will be comfortable, safe and well fed both physically and spiritually. A true once in a lifetime opportunity and we are so excited to be able to offer this to you!
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.
