quoteAre you in need of creating a little time and space for yourself? Ever feel like you’re too busy and your mind is too wild, but can’t figure out how to get off the proverbial treadmill? Begin to learn how to be more present, notice what’s actually on your mind, train yourself to increase attention, clarity, and creativity.  I lead experiential, mini retreats in the Des Moines metro, where you’ll learn to create a deliberate pause and self-reflection.
