Rite of Passage


Sunday, Oct. 22nd 2023

Calling all women who are going through a major life transition that has ROCKED you to the CORE leaving you feeling lost, alone and unrecognizable. Be it a breakup, a career change, empty nesting, a milestone birthday, a life transition, new habits, new parenthood, or retirement - this IS a Rite of Passage.


If this is you – I'd love to invite you to join me for a very special retreat in beautiful Saint Petersburg, Florida.

Within our sacred circle of like-minded sisters, you’ll find support, serenity,

acceptance, and love while exploring your next chapter in life.

You've just made it to Saint Pete Beach, Florida. You can't help but notice the sweet and sultry tropical air kissing your skin. Your shoulders drop, tension melts, and you take a deep,

cleansing breath.

You're now assured that you made a very wise choice for yourself... ​

... You hear seagulls call and the melody of crashing waves on the beach nearby.


Looking up at the sky, beautiful blue hues inspire you to bring color back into your life. The black and grey of your world slowly begins to change.

A sense of ease comes over you because you know you are right where you need to be! Taking care of YOU!
