My first event in 2013 is a workshop I am planning for the women of our church.  The workshop will begin at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday,  January 12, 2013 and end at 1:00 p.m.  Why the women of our church?  Since 2009, Paul and I have been enjoying our membership in Unity of Wimberley, a congregation of incredible people.  First, there was a core group from the beginning who were willing to put effort and time into the creation of this organization.  I am so grateful that they persevered through the founding years so that it could grow into the spiritual community that now exists.  There are artists, scientists, writers, naturalists, teachers, counselors, ranchers, entrepreneurs, business folks, healers, and many more categories of people who attend Unity of Wimberley.  We have found a spiritual home and are very grateful for the stimulating, growth-provoking Sunday services.  The leadership of Reverend Ellen Debenport is the major reason we like this community.  She is the real attraction factor and every talk she gives provides great food for spiritual growth.  Kit Holmes is music director and brings us to new spiritual levels of celebration in every service.

So, I want to give something back.   This workshop is my contribution to our Amazing Year, 2013,  at Unity of Wimberley.

“New Year-New You” is a workshop featuring the roles that women live, just because we are born female.  We are daughters, mothers, aunts, sisters, grandmothers, wives, lovers, independent women, mid-wives and spiritual women.  I will use my old Possible Woman workshop and condense it from the time span of one whole weekend to a short (four hour) workshop.  I intend it to be provocative, stimulating, inspirational, and safe.  I want to have fun with whomever shows up.  So I will incorporate some of Jean Houston’s mystery school, some of Jean Shinoda Bolen’s “Goddesses in Everywoman” and some of my own story as well as the stories of the women who attend.  All we have is our story and if we want to create an amazing year in 2013, this workshop will start that process.

If you are one of the women from Unity of Wimberley, please plan to attend.  Let me know if you are coming so that I can prepare for you.  I will have a sign-up sheet at church and the fee is a donation to Unity of Wimberley.  Yes, you may bring your friends even if they are not regulars at Unity.

Bring journals, dress comfortably, and prepare to open your heart and mind to the new year in the most amazing possibility ever.  Dream in advance about 2013, who you want to be, what you want to do, and the things you want to have.  Be ready to envision and receive your highest possible good, your truest self, and a future that creates your happiness advantage.

As my friend, Betty Rothenberger in California, signs her letters……..I, too, say…..

in the dance…”
