The Art of Vibrant Living

Virtual Retreat for the Heart and Soul
May 16, 2020 ~ July 18, 2020


Today, like every other day, we wake up empty and
frightened.  Don’t open the door to the study and begin reading. 
Take down the dulcimer.  Let the beauty we love be what we do. 
There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.
~ Rumi


Rumi offers us the perfect antidote to our anxiety, fear and worry . . .

While it can be hard to see, in truth, the choice is always ours . . . do we want to obsess over the challenges in our world or do we want to “let the beauty we love be what we do”?

Challenging times offer us an opportunity to look at ourselves and our world in a new way.  And that can prove to be an unexpected and beautiful gift.

If you’re yearning to find your dulcimer . . . to find beauty in what you do . . . and to discover ways that you can kneel and kiss the ground . . . then join us for The Art of Vibrant Living!



THE ART OF VIBRANT LIVING offers a virtual retreat experience through three online sessions over two months.  You’ll learn how you can live a more vibrant life by finding inspiration, joy and peace in even the most difficult times.


LIVING INSPIRED:  Saturday, May 16, 1pm – 3pm PT

Write it in your heart that every day
is the best day in the year.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson


NURTURING JOY:  Saturday, June 20, 1pm – 3pm PT

A joyful life is made up of joyful moments

CULTIVATING PEACE:  Saturday, July 18, 1pm – 3pm PT

Peace can become a lens through which you see the world.
Be it. Live it. Radiate it out. Peace is an inside job.
~ Wayne Dyer
