A - Invision It!
By beginning with questions that help focus on a goal, participants will then get creative with glue and magazines to create visual cues that facilitate reaching those goals. Participants will also learn methods of accountability to help one keep on track toward those goals. Leave feeling more in tune with your goals as well as a means toward seeing it realized.
Jennie Stoltz - Hingham, MT    Dining Room, Limit 10.

B - Meeting Your Wild Soul
In the land of your soul, there is a power center below your feet, in the root ball of your spirit tree. Here is the home of your Wild Soul. She is the part of you that knows no separation from Gaia, or Nature, or the life force of this planet. She is your Earth. Isn’t it time you met?
Jo Flagg - Bozeman, MT   Juice Bar, Limit 15.

C - InterPlay: Unlocking the Wisdom of the Body
This workshop will offer a space for women to play, dance, create, be spontaneous, release stress and have laughter together. A supportive place will be created for playing with the different forms of Interplay - storytelling, connecting with each other through easy movement, stillness, dance, and exploring how our mind, bodies, hearts, spirits, and each other are deeply connected. The wonderful experience of Interplay is something that can be integrated into daily life in bits and pieces to enhance your everyday experience. Participants will leave feeling energized with a strong sense of being in their bodies, interpersonal and community connection, and sense of wonder at how Interplay can bring us back to our whole selves in a deeply meaningful way. .

D - Birth Story Celebration: A Guided Reflection on Birth in Our Culture and Sharing Our own Personal Experience
Whether you are a maiden finding your way in the world, a mother walking the path of parenting, or a crone reflecting back on your life, this workshop will be a powerful experience. Each of us have a birth story to share whether it be our own birth, the birth of our own children or our grandchildren. This workshop offers a road map for participants to reflect and learn from their own experience and share that experience with others if they choose. As a midwife in Montana, Mikelann Caywood-Baerg has assisted over 1400 families on this journey and would love to share her expertise with other women.

Shyralee Mitchell - Clancy, MT    Annex, Limit 30.

F - The Cauldron and the Spoon
The Cauldron and the Spoon is a Julia Hayes original ritual teaching that incorporates magical tools for healing the heart and the mind. Participants will learn the meaning and metaphor of the cauldron - the vessel of ourselves. Participants will learn about the different contents of the cauldron - our triggers, patterns and emotional chunks (all the stuff we’d rather stir in and not spoon up) as well as the different kinds of spoons that stir in our magical emotional stews. You will have a turn stirring the contents of the cauldron using whatever spoon resonates. Hearty bits of beauty might turn up or pieces of wonder or slices of trust or chunks of anger or bitterness might surface or edgy pieces of resentment, reminding us where we still need a little extra magic.
Julia Hayes - Medical Lake, WA   Juice Bar, Limit 15.

G - Awareness and Gratitude: Dancing To Heal
Come experience a Nia Moving To Heal class as well as several individual and small group body awareness practices, body journaling, and the opportunity to translate their new awareness into a personal artwork piece. Moving to Heal is a gentle dance modality appropriate for all bodies and fitness levels, including women in recovery. Participants will leave with an inspiring journal page, a self-illustrated healing artwork, and the ability to integrate a self healing practice into their lives.

I - See the Light: Make Better Photographs
Learn how to use light to make your photographs more dynamic in this photography workshop led by seasoned photographer, Katie Knight. Photographs express moods and emotion primarily through the qualities of light on the subject. To create a moving photograph, the technical capacity of a camera matters far less than the photographer’s attention to light. You will play with all kinds of light while making photographs that resonate with moods from softness, to drama and mystery. Bring your camera, questions, and playful attitude.
Katie Knight - Helena, MT   Veranda, Limit:20

11:30 - 12:45 Lunch

▸ Session 3: 1:00 - 2:30 p.m.

J - The Awakened Eye: Seeing/Drawing as Meditation Starting with an introduction about the artist Frederick Franck whose sculpture “Seven Generations” stands on a hill behind Boulder Hot Springs, this workshop will explore Franck’s idea “the purpose of life is to see”. Using a simple #2 pencil and a scrap of paper, you will discover how these things can be tools for meditation. The participants will experience a joyful awareness of their true non dual nature - the perceived gap between subject and object disappears! Learn how to use the process of Drawing/Seeing as a tool for meditating as opposed to drawing as a means of creating a “picture”. This is not a “how to draw” workshop but rather drawing as a tool for ‘seeing’. Even if you are intimidated by doing even a little sketch, Drawing/Seeing might help you overcome this fear.
Lisa Beardsley - Bozeman, MT    Dining Room, No Limit.

K- Ukulele
Anyone, including YOU, can play and sing with the ukulele. Learn a few chords and you're on your way. Judy will bring ukuleles to borrow, chord charts and handouts of easy singalongs. If you have your own ukulele, bring it. It's time to celebrate life with music!
Judy Fjell - Helena, MT   Juice Bar,

L - Transformative Healing: What’s Your Pattern?
Learn the three phases of transformative healing recognizable by their patterns. Participants will take an assessment to determine their primary transformative pattern and learn how to use this information when approaching relationship/life situations giving themselves more empowerment in their lives. Leave with a better sense of how you operate in the world especially being more comfortable with chaos! The end of the workshop will offer a transformative energy healing session.
Gia Combs-Ramirez,   Ennis, MT   Ballroom, No Limit.

M - Veil Therapy
We will be using veils, meditation and dance to remove the weight of our everyday burdens. Dance on!

▸ Session 4: 3:00 - 4:30 p.m.

N - Using your Poetic Voice to Heal the World
Tap into your deepest wells of creativity and write crafted pieces about healing. This process will involve first identifying and celebrating your own healing and then identifying and celebrating how that influences/d and facilitates/d healing the world. You will leave with a deep understanding of how important each of us are in the process of healing the world and knowing you have a poetic voice you can employ to that important work.
Donna Davis - Helena, MT   Dining Room, Limit: 10.

O - Shifting From Fear to Strength
In these times of so much fear and anger, it is especially relevant to recognize and clear your own triggers, so that you can respond to challenges with confidence and compassion. Daeryl presents activities and Revisioning Techniques (specialized guided meditations) giving you new perspectives and tools to shift how you think and feel. Learn how to clear and maintain your sacred energy, and tap into Mother Earth and Spirit for added strength – and magical outcomes. What if you could dance joyfully along the path of your empowered soul, no matter what is happening around you?
Daeryl Holzer - Bozeman, MT    Juice Bar, No Limit.
