21 Stepping stones

Are you yearning for peace and clarity?

Are you searching for a way to live a more focused and meaningful life?

Cultivating peace and clarity doesn’t necessarily require hours of meditation or days spent alone in spiritual contemplation. It can take only moments a day – just a small step back from the hectic pace of our daily lives and the frenzied world around us. During these moments – these mini-retreats – we can savor joy, express gratitude, and experience wonder. In doing so, we gently open space for magic and possibilities to grow.

Breathing-Space-350pixIn 2008 Karen Ely, founder/director of the Sedona Women’s Institute, sent weekly e-mails inviting women to take min-retreats into the oases of their own souls. Now collected into a single volume, her messages provide weekly inspiration and exercises to help busy women slow down and find peace and clarity in the noise and bustle of everyday life.

Breathing Space contains 52 mini-retreats for your heart and soul – one for each week of the year – each combined with an inspirational quote and one of Karen Ely’s award-winning photographs.

“Breathing Space has been a joyful experience for me since its inception as weekly mini-retreat e-mails in 2008. From the beginning, the women who received the e-mails have shared how these mini-retreats have infused their lives with inspiration, hope, and guidance. I hope they provide the same for you”.
