Following the Spark

I haven't led a retreat since 2012 when my youngest daughter became ill. Recently, something has been pointing me to visit The Black Hills in South Dakota to connect with the Lakota and the land. The vision kept pressing on my mind. So I gave in and sat with the notion — "follow the spark". This was the green light I needed to get out of my own way.

And boy howdy! Now I'm on a mission...and my dear husband is rolling his eyes. But I wish to connect with other Healers around the world — to experience the sacred through different lenses. Healing and the souls that act as a conduit for healing are like snowflakes, each divinely unique and precious. And I can't wait to get a closer look at these specks of beauty in the world. Drawing from my vision to "follow the spark", the first stop on this journey is actually right here in the US and I imagine this will continue to unfold organically from there. I'd love for you to join me.
