"Let's Manifest Miracles!" Mini-Workshop

  • Oct 5, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • A Private Home


• Feel stuck or burnt out lately?

• Looking for new direction in life?

• Want to start something new and exciting but just don't know what it is?

• Dream of being/doing/having more in your life?

• Want to create more connected relationships with yourself and others?

• Looking for ways to feel more fulfilled, healthy and happy?


I am SO excited to announce that, for the first time outside of a one-on-one setting with clients (normally, a $250 two-part session), I will be offering "Let's Manifest Miracles!" - a 4.5-hour mini-workshop that will help you visualize your dreams, get clear on what you want and create a concrete action plan to help you turn your dreams into realities!  (I figure there is NO better group of people for me to launch my first group workshop with than the individuals who have become a family over the past 7 years since my founding of Singles in the Suburbs!)


It all started with the creation of Singles in the Suburbs, then my 35 Dates in 35 Days Project ( - which led me to start my "Your Experience" company, which led me to found Find Your Experience ( which ultimately led me down the path to combine all of my ventures and experiences and become a personal and professional achievement adviser, helping individuals in the same way that my fabulous coaches and mentors did for me (and still do)!


Included With Your Registration for the Workshop:

- Group discussion on the Law of Attraction - and why it's simply not enough!

- Guided workshop to help you take stock of where you "really are" in key areas of your life!

- Information on visualization and manifestation and all materials to help you create your 2014 Vision Board!

- One-on-One session to create your personalized action plan!

- Snacks, beverages, fun and MUCH more!


WHO AM I?  (In addition to being "The Big Kahuna" of Singles in the Suburbs)


Rita Colbert is Founder of Singles in the Suburbs and Find Your Experience.  Seven years ago, Rita found herself suddenly single. Realizing that all of her friends were either married or in serious relationships, she set up a happy hour for other singles in hopes of making new friends who were in the same “non-married” boat.

Thirty people attended that first event. In just one month, the initial group of 30 grew into 100 singles attending Rita’s events and she has since founded Singles in the Suburbs, which hosts approximately 30 events a month and is now over 2,900 members strong. Members say that they love the organization because it celebrates being single!

After the end of another relationship, Rita decided to take a serious look at her approach to finding “the one.” To shake up her routine and get over her breakup, Rita decided to overdose on dating and went on 35 dates in 35 days. Her detailed blog of the experience can be found at

On her dating journey, Rita learned that she needed to stop questing for a husband and enjoy her relationships as they happened. She threw away her “perfect-mate checklist” and began to engage with the men she met. By doing so, Rita found greater self
awareness. By mapping out who she is and putting that into the Universe, Rita was able to recognize the patterns that were sabotaging her relationships and learned how to approach dating from an entirely new perspective.

Those experiences introduced Rita to numerous people – men, women, single, married – and a wide range of experts. She was excited by the people she was meeting and wanted to bring them all together so, in 2013, she founded Find Your Experience. The mission of Find Your Experience is to build a community whose members are united on a quest for happiness. Find Your Experience creates an environment for individuals to meet and connect with members and experts for learning, fun, support and inspiration!

Rita's goal is to help others “Get up, Get out and Do something” so that they can be more present in their relationships, invested in themselves and, ultimately, empowered.


Rita has appeared in The Washington Post, Northern Virginia Magazine, WTOP, The Reston Connection,, Power Women Magazine, Learn How To Find Love with Dawn Maslar and Glittarazzi. She is the Dating and Relationship columnist for DC Ladies and a member of the Matchmakers Alliance.  She is happy to announce she is engaged and will become Mrs. Goodroe on April 12, 2014!



So that everyone can have a quality one-on-one session, participation is limited to 10 participants!

Hope you can make it!

      I replied outside this thread - taking a class at 1, should be available after 5. If that doesn't work, perhaps a later date for me then
