Ferry Beach, Maine

It’s not too late to treat yourself!

Consider joining us at Ferry Beach for the Summer of Love and our retreat, LIGHT UP YOUR SOUL’S PATH: SOUL COLLAGE AND SPIRITUAL AUTOBIOGRAPHY.  There are still a few seats at the retreat if you are ready to treat yourself to a gift of “self-love” which of course really does ignite the Soul’s Path in so many ways.

Join us – Gail McMeekin and Deb Knox – as we gather together August 20th – 23rd to envision the Path more clearly. We’ll be using the powerful tools of Soul Collage (R) and Spiritual Autobiography for insights and guidance for moving forward into a magnificent Fall.

You will:

  • emerge centered and excited about your life and your work,
  • experience new visions for self-expression and fulfillment,
  • learn to use your Imagination, Intention, and Intuition to create these special collages and realize new adventures, and
  • discover your spiritual storyline, the underlying thread that imbues your life experience with meaning and purpose

This retreat will be interactive and varied using combinations of writing exercises, SoulCollage® Card Making, visualizations, journaling, meditative walks, etc. We recommend that you bring your personal journal.

Ferry Beach is a unique gathering place, right on the ocean, where the sunny skies and cool breezes will hopefully be at play along with us. Gail and Deb have been friends and colleagues almost since the original Summer of Love 1967. Here we are 50 years later and grateful to share some enlightening time with all of you.

Ferry Beach, Maine

I may thrive in the desert, but my soul lives in New England at the ocean’s edge.  Ferry Beach is a funky – yet beautiful, reasonably priced Unitarian Universalist Conference Center that occasionally invites in new workshop leaders to compliment its regular conferences.  It’s been four years since my dear friend Gail McMeekin and I first proposed this workshop and now it has become a reality – and will be with your participation.

Our 3-day retreat – Soul Life – is designed for you to take advantage of the necessary ingredients for a soul life-changing event.

SETTING:  Join us for a comfortable, immersion into a national treasure – the geography of the sandy coast of Maine.  We’ll be meeting in the Gardner house – living room and outside porch, just moments away from the beach. So as we’re called to be outside, out we go.

INTENTION:  Experience a retreat designed with you to further or deepen the work you are already doing on a soul level, using the tools of Souls Collage and Spiritual Autobiography.

You will be able to:

  • Enjoy and discover hidden (to you) secrets that will enrich your self-understanding;
  • Reflect and regain a connection with that thread of meaning that runs through your life story;
  • Create a soul inspired collage that mirrors the insight, understanding, and gifts that you have received during this sacred time.

FACILITATORS:  Gail and I have known each other for over 30 years as friends and colleagues.  We are excited to share the current tools for re-creating and re-inventing ourselves.  Our focus is to be more aware, more inspired and more empowered as we follow our intuitive path.

For more information, here is the link to the workshop.

The conference fee itself covers meals (which I understand are fabulous) and the workshop.  Because Ferry Beach is a non-profit, there is a $30 membership fee which helps support their good work. The accommodations for rooms at this oceanside delight are as affordable as you will find anywhere.

Please consider joining us. This workshop will NEVER be offered again at this amazing price and you must sign up by 6/30 and space is limited, as this will be an intimate group. Please send an email todlkcoach@gmail.com if you have any questions.

We would like to be available to answer any further questions you might have and have scheduled a free conference call on Wednesday, June 21, 2017, at 4 PM PST/ 7 PM EST.

Conference Dial-in Number: (605) 475-4000

Other updates to follow.  It’s been a busy year with many lifework transitions for me.  Stay tuned for more information on “elder living outside-the-box”. And I am grateful to be a part of the growing team of facilitators for Age Insight – presenting Collaborative Arts for Older Adults: Building Community Expanding Horizons.

I continue with the Elder Circle facilitations here in Tucson and we have added a new Assisted Living Facility to our list. The stories never stop flowing.

And finally, my writing groups Crafting Your Spiritual Storyline continue here in Tucson and online through StoryCircle network.

Fall workshops will be sent out shortly.

Wishing you a summer of insights, adventures and new paths to follow!

I hope you’ll feel called to join us in Maine!

Warm regards,
