Facing the Sun: Creating More Joy & Peace in Your Life Through Transformative Writing

So much conflict, anger, division, bad news, fake news–how in the world can we get and maintain joy and peace in the midst of it all? How can we stop feeling overwhelmed and discouraged and afraid? By employing a powerful tool: intentional writing exercises.

These exercises work because they cause us to stop, reflect, and gain deep insights about ourselves and our natural calling to be joyful and serene. The guided writing prompts in this introductory workshop will help you to:

  • Tune in to your unique “joy channel” by naming your gifts and taking concrete steps to use them in a bigger, more intentional way
  • Identify and banish the mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual strongholds that get in your way
  • Discover the Essential Element necessary to spark joy consistently, even in the darkest times
  • Immediately employ the tools, tips, and mindset that enable you to lighten up and burn bright
  • Practice the principles and perspectives needed to cultivate a warm sense of calm, happiness, and purpose over a lifetime

Format: This class will be presented virtually and is composed of two parts. Part One is pre-recorded content that participants can access at any time and study at their own pace. Part Two will be a live and lively Zoom session with Lauretta and other kindred spirits.

Register: More details and a registration link will be coming soon.

She Who Laughs Castle Edition
She Who Laughs Retreat
–the European Castle Edition
Fall 2022
A longtime dream of mine has been to hold the She Who Laughs Retreat in a castle, a European castle that would be all ours. Planning for this adventure is now underway. 
We will gather around roaring fires, sip hot libations, and emit unbridled laughter as we do a little work to get closer to our flame. Our group will be between 6 and 10 in number, and each intrepid participant will receive a personal consultation with Lauretta. Oh, and we’re going to explore and nap and visit the pub and above all: fill ourselves up with JOY.
Please contact Lauretta now if this sounds like a dream of yours. The retreat will sell out quickly once registration opens.
