  • SPECIAL EVENT: What's Next? "All-in" Collaboration

    Hotel Northampton

    Part 2 of a 3 Part Series - This special event series is a multi-meetup opportunity to explore "What's Next?" in our individual and collective futures. I would love to have you join us! Would you like to create relationships, community and organizations that: • Cultivate deep connection, awareness and support? • Encourage you to be your unique self…and welcome ALL facets of you? • Create true synergy and effective collaboration – real results? • Grow and evolve… and encourage you to as well? All at the same time? Many of us have been taught that life is like an orchestra… There is a hierarchy and there are fixed roles. If you’re smart, powerful or conniving enough, you can be the conductor and get your song played…otherwise you are expected to go along. What if life were more like a Jazz Improv Ensemble? Each player has their unique instrument (Expression), and everyone comes together with the intention of playing amazing music (Purpose). But rather than a fixed song, the joy comes from what emerges (Growth) as they lean into one another, supporting ‘what the music wants’ and each other’s solos. (Connection) What is created is beyond any song we can imagine alone. That’s the real magic. Our lives are changing rapidly and there is a new wave of consciousness that is calling for new ways to work together on all levels….we are being asked to be a different kind of participant. So, What’s NEXT? How can we create true synergy in our relationships, community and organizations? What does partnership and collaboration look like in this next phase of our evolution? How can we better help and support one another and enjoy the process? In the seminar portion of the evening, you will learn: • How to translate many voices into one powerful intention • How to turn conflict and power struggles into juice and momentum • A powerful alternative to win/win, consensus and compromise • Three valuable skills necessary for “jazz improv” • How you can identify and work with “what wants to happen” • What’s really happening with 4 common collaboration styles and how to shift them: The Talker / Over Sharer, The Dominator, The “How” Person, The Rule Maker / Follower In the collaborative part of the evening… • Connect & Share Your Experiences, Vision and Deep Desire around Relationships, Community and Collaboration • Create Real World “Creative Collaborations” with each other • Brainstorm new ways we can use technology, social media, personal networks and social capital to help each other • Create Tangible Next Steps for Yourself & Our Emerging Community There will be an interactive presentation followed by an opportunity to work in small groups. Think about: 1) What would you like help creating in the world? 2) What gifts, expertise, passions can you offer to others to help them with their dreams? ------------------------------------------------------------------- This is the first in a three part series. You are welcome to come for one or any combination. Cost: $10 - $20 sliding scale per evening You can purchase a ticket at the door or HERE.

  • Power, Passion and Purpose Retreat

    Angels Rest

    Power, Passion and Purpose Retreat May 2-4th Power is your capacity and access to life force. It gives you impact, influence and traction. It is your capacity to create and manifest. · Do you know there is MORE? · Do you like to “play big”? · Are you afraid of your full power? Been told you’re too intense? · Do you often feel “too much” and/or “not enough”? · Do you feel like you are spinning your wheels? · Are you living the BIG life you know you are meant to live? Passion is the spark, fire and fuel of desire that inspires, compels and moves you. · Do you allow yourself to fully feel your desire? To act on your desire? · Are you fully awake and alive? · Are you creative and experimental? · Do you feel, hear, know your calling? · Does your life inspire you and others? · Do you make choices based on pleasure and joy? Purpose is your unique contribution to life and evolution itself. It is the expression of your soul in the world. It is not a role, it is a way of being. · Does your life reflect your uniqueness? · Are you feeling satisfied at the end of the day? · Do you have a deep sense of meaning, direction and intention to your life? · Do you want to contribute and engage the world more? When power, passion and purpose align and amplify each other EVERYTHING is possible. When out of balance or when one of them is lacking, there is a variety of ways it can show up: boredom, stagnation, burnout, feeling blocked, depression, lack of vision, overwhelm, power struggles, bullying, martyrdom, hopelessness, anger and a host of other challenges. It’s okay to want even more! In this retreat we will: · Explore our push/pull about Power · Explore our Fears as Just Desires · Support you in Finding Your Unique Gifts · Map your Power, Passion, Purpose Dynamics · Identify what gets in your way and techniques for amplifying the 3 P’s. · How Power, Passion and Purpose work together · Create a “PPP” Plan for moving forward after the Retreat Drawing from a wide range of teachings, modalities and experiential opportunities may include: · Dance, movement, sound, Breathwork · Mapping, Visioning, Guided Meditation · Deep Inquiry and Self Exploration · Teachings and Energetic Transmissions · Working with Energy /Morphic Fields · Individual Mentoring · Laughter, Irreverence & Play Place: Angel’s Rest Retreat Center, Leyden, MA (A wonderful retreat center with two hot tubs and 7 yummy meals) Start: Friday, May 2, 4-6pm check- in, Dinner from 6-7pm. Workshop start 7:00pm End: Sunday, May 4, at 6pm Cost: Only $395 as special offer (usually $545) Deposit: $200 Space limited to 22 participants! A Note From Trish For over 20 years, I’ve been on a personal journey of bringing my unique gifts forward in the world and coming to terms with my “bigness”…big energy, big dreams and big passion. In working with clients of all kinds, entrepreneurs, spiritual seekers, and mission driven individuals…over and over I hear of how they are afraid to really let themselves access their power and their desires. There is a common theme of fear of really showing up – that this will mean others will run, or they will judge or somehow they will no longer belong. This retreat is a call to those of you that are ready to join other passionate souls like you...in taking the next leap in your own evolution and manifestation. RESERVE YOUR SPACE! 1.) Email me with Request to Reserve Your Space [masked] 2.) Make Deposit through this PayPal link (https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=RXBCU9U4RNMYG) or check to 29 Elm Street, Somerville, MA 02143 3.) If you have not worked with me (Trish) before, there is a short phone interview just to get to know you and your background. This enables me to better plan the retreat. Fierce Love Retreats Diving deep into ourselves, each other and community, Fierce Love retreats explore the multidimensional path of living as a fully embodied, passionate, warrior of love and life. Embracing opposites and paradoxes we explore our power, purpose, erotic nature and desires as we break open, healing and revealing our hearts and souls. Testimonials about Trish’s last retreat: “The workshop far exceeded my expectations. Your facilitation was masterful and the food was amazing. I love the way you intuitively adapt to the situation. I also really appreciate your energy and your approach to building community. I'm looking forward to being in community with you.” J.J. “The Erotic & The Ecstatic Retreat was extraordinary, even life-changing. To discover the range of application of my sensual self was profoundly empowering. It was a weekend of great self-discovery, pleasure, friendship – and the deepest kind of laughter. I loved Trish’s hearty honesty – and the food, facility and fiancé were all tops. Keep it comin’ Trish! “ M.M. “This was one of the best retreats that I have been to in a long time. I am more present and feel my potential more. I feel more of my erotic and ecstatic energy now. “ R.B.

  • Intuition Experiments

    Northampton Friends Meeting

    $10.00

    While we are all born with it, intuition still needs to be cultivated and practiced. One of the biggest blocks to expanding and clarifying intuition (even for experienced practitioners) is the attachment to "getting it right'. Let's take the pressure off and have some fun experimenting and playing with our psychic skills. There will be various levels for beginner to more experienced practitioners. Come share your tricks and stories too. I will be offering tips on developing skills from my 25 years of experience of working with clients as well. In the mix will be the opportunity for some personal mini readings for those that want to practice. Hope you can join us! Appropriate for all experience levels. This meetup is $10, 7pm-9pm with socializing afterwards. Please try to arrive as close to 7pm as possible. If you arrive after 7:15 please text me at[masked] to let you in. Thanks!
