B R E A T H E: AN 11 week online RETREAT for YOUR SPIRIT



"B R E A T H E, to me, is a life-giving combination of fullness and wide open space.  It is the gift of simply being still, of embracing just where I am, without a need to DO anything but simply *be*.  It's an offering of Julia's poetry that speaks to deep places, an outpouring of her wisdom that reminds me over and again that who I am is beautiful and lovable and *enough*, and her invitation to let those words live out in an active expression that daily reminds me of truth and light.  Julia's BREATHE prompts the most grace-filled opening to write... through a doorway held lovingly open for my soul to dive deep, and be held."    - Robin  Oesterwind



BREATHE IN. BREATHE OUT.

DIVE DEEP. BE BRAVE.

Ready to bring forth the treasures that are hidden within you?

B R E A T H E

is an eleven week, (self-directed), deep breathing, creative recovery retreat for your spirit.

It’s an offering from the deepest, most tender, real place in my heart, to the deepest, most tender, real place in yours. It’s my hand reaching for yours, saying:
***


Shhhh, let’s get quiet, let’s slowly, bravely - with deep wide open breaths, breathe away that which drains and covers and tugs and clouds and pulls you away from that which is real and true. And take a brave (feeling the fear and stepping anyway), wholehearted, unapologetic step, together - toward. Toward love. Toward Beauty. Toward True. Toward enough. Toward the treasures that are hidden within. Toward the truest, most bursting-with-enough version of you.



B R E A T H E 

▪ is an invitation to slow way down - to pause, to notice. To take a break from the do-doing of this busy, full, often-overwhelming world - to question the mind that thinks it’s all a great big emergency (it isn’t).

▪ is an invitation to accept your messy, perfectly imperfect self, finally and forever. It’s a nudge for your spirit to start to LIVE with unapologetic brightness. To move, even with the fear, to even (imagine this!) befriend your fear. To quiet the noise in your tired, nagging head, to splash a little water on your sleepy face and wake up to you just as you are, to life just as it is.


Abundant. Messy. Spilling with beauty. Just right. Enough.


▪ is an invitation to stop measuring success by how much you get done in a day, or by how many people you please or by whether someone else thinks you're a success. Or by how much money pours (or doesn't pour) in. And to start measuring it by how much holy W O N D E R you feel and whether you're brave enough to follow it.


is oxygen for your tired, trying-too-hard parts.


▪ is a quieting, a holy hush, that will help you hear that deeper, wise, knowing voice within you.
***


So this, I believe, is the central question which all creative living hinges: 'Do you have the courage to bring forth the treasures that are hidden within you?'" Elizabeth Gilbert

This is how it works:

 Each week, once a week, for 11 consecutive weeks, one of my poems, along with a writing prompt and a special weekly invitation (to dive deep and get brave), will land in your inbox. *NOTE - There will be some bonus surprises as well (that involve me sharing many of my very favorite things).

▪ Once you sign up, you will receive a welcome letter/video of me introducing myself and this program (within 24 hours). All "lessons" will be delivered to your inbox on Sundays (at the same time each week). You will receive week one's lesson the Sunday after you sign up (to begin on 10/18/15).

▪ B R E A T H E   is self-directed, to be moved through in your own time, at your own pace. To the rhythm of your own deepest breaths.

▪ You will be invited to slow way down, to take a step back from this cluttered, often too-much world - to breathe. To write. To create. (I can't wait to introduce you writing practice and intuitive creating - two of my greatest loves.) To play. To lighten up. To have fun. To stop focusing on trying to be "good" and to start following your curiosity and wonder. You will be invited to baby step (or leap) toward the YESes that are calling you, that have been calling to you for a tired eternity. One brave step at a time. Just one.

My intention is that you will come to the end of this eleven weeks quieter, standing more rooted and tall & unapologetic in your YOUness. Braver. More accepting of the messy-beautiful ISness of it all.
More willing to say YES to that which is calling your name. Clearer about those treasures hidden inside you. Breathing more deeply. Accepting more fully the all of who you are (imperfections included).
***

Ready to begin to uncover those treasures? Or expand upon that which you've already been brave enough to uncover?
