Hi Everyone! I want you to spend five days not doing a single dish, not cooking a single meal, not even making the bed.

Join me and a group of fun, wholehearted, like-minded people who want to feel great and start summer with a clean slate.
Here’s what we’ll create:
1) A lasting sense of ease and joy of being in your body.
2) A deliciously easy detox experience that moves you towards your health goals.
3) Space, support, and uninterrupted time to exist in a way that is true to who YOU are.
I want you to pause on a thought for a minute. Really close your eyes and see if you can feel it.
Step into lightness.
Feels good, yes?
Are you even smiling a little?
What will happen when you step out of your routine and leave all the little loose ends of your usual day-to-day?
Lots can happen. Big shifts. . . Having actual movement through a block you’ve had for quite some time. Et Voila: The result? Lightness.
But it takes determination to get to that lightness.
It’s likely not that hard to do—probably even takes less time than you think.
Maybe it’s even a lot easier than you imagined in those cranky moments when you’re sleep deprived, your computer’s hard drive failed, or suddenly need to find a whole new wardrobe for your kiddo because he had to go and have a growth spurt…
Then there’s dishes and laundry and cooking, oh my!
There are a lot of ~distractions~ that can keep you from connecting to that lightness. And when you’re not feeling the kind of lightness that brings gorgeous a-ha moments, shatters emotional or mental blocks, or gives you refreshing clarity. . . you’re less likely to stop and figure out what you need to do to figure it out.
You can likely move through whatever you want to move through eventually, but it’s so DAMN inspiring to make it happen, because that, folks, is empowerment.
You get to step back and say, “Holy smokes, I just did that!”
But a lot depends on whether you want to wait for it to randomly occur, or go out and MAKE it happen.
Here’s what I believe in my bones: We don’t have time to wait for the life we want to come to us.
These things don’t just magically occur.
But the real magic is that we can easily create them.
Maybe you’ve been stuck for a while with something about your health that just doesn’t work.
And you realize that you want to do something that will actually give you that clarity, lightness, and practical help to make a change. I want to tell you a personal story.
You know you might be able figure it out on your own if you worked really hard, but that sounds like a totally fun party—not!
Fifteen years ago when I was working a job that didn’t fit me, I realized that I had waltzed into a life that not only didn’t inspire me, but that made me physically ill.
(Hello—break room sugar/caffeine central…my best “frienemy”!)
I was too distracted, exhausted, and downtrodden to see clearly enough to get myself out of that situation because I felt so bad ALL the time. I didn’t get to that state of ill health overnight, but I knew that I had to get out of there right quick because my life literally depended on it.
(Spoiler Alert…yup, my life got WAY better once I stepped outside the whirring chatter of the day and competing calls for my attention.)
Back in the day, the things that didn’t work in my life were hazy, but I saw them. I had a sense that they weren’t in alignment with who I was and who I wanted to become. But I didn’t act until it was a five-alarm fire (this is too late).
When I think about it, it was rather cruel of me to do that to myself.
So how do we do build up the momentum to invite these positive changes in a more kinder, gentler way?
Here’s what I do: (snd you can bet, I will do this for the rest of my life!)
I step outside.
One of my non-negotiables is to get away every few months—to conferences, retreats, workshops—events that fuel me and bring me closer to who I am.
When we experience a different way of being, we can’t go back to our lives and act the same old way. We’re changed people.
Taking time out, away from my family and my business to be at retreats is the best way to ensure that I’m staying on track with who I am. Being the best person, woman, mom, friend, and entrepreneur is a tall order, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
In these inspiring moments I’ve gotten more clarity about my mission and started really rockin’ it.
Join me for the SUMMER LIGHTNESS CLEANSE RETREAT: Discover Your Ability to Rejuvenate & Shine.
We’ll get you all fresh and sparkly at laser speed.
We’ll have cooking demonstrations, easy and enlivening movement sessions, writing exercises, small-group discussions, guided meditations, and presentations from some of the best teachers I know.
We’ll talk about the “Toxic 6″ foods and avoid them all week in order to help our bodies remove the “static” that keeps us feeling anxious, tired, foggy-headed and stressed-out.
We’ll discover new ways to totally love delicious, healthy foods that boost our energy, mood and outlook on life.
You’ll get clarity on exactly what you need to feel better.
The best of all? You’ll get to take that lightness back home with you when you leave.
If you’re thinking that this might be your idea of a hootin’ and hollering good time, check out the link.
Oh yeah, and I’m super excited to say that I have something else to tell you:
