Soul Restoration May 2018

Hi friends!

Today I want to share a little bit about the Soul Restoration Retreat I held at Summer House Park on Miller Lake this past spring. I first want to say that Summer House Park is amazing!! They are a family run campground and resort and it shows. They sure do make you feel like family. Darcey and all her staff made myself and my guests feel so cared for. We had all our meals at the CafĂ© and I have to tell you, we did not go away hungry.  We stayed in a cute little cottage and I was able to hold our classes in their recreation hall, which had a fully functional kitchen, had we wanted to use it. Surrounded by nature we truly were able to 'go where the peace is."

Soul Restoration is a course created by my friend Melody from Brave Living and is full of creative goodness, deep soul work, ample quiet time and fellowship with women. If you have read my blog before, you know how much this course has grown me and continues to grow me.

Along with my friend Julie, we had the pleasure of pampering a woman that I have known for a long time. We were a small group and honestly that was a huge blessing. It relieved a lot of stress and I was able to truly share the Soul Restoration experience and keep things simple because I knew that my guest has loved me for a long time and I did not have to prove anything to her. I was really able to make it about her and her restoration. And Julie, she sent me a message last fall when she heard I was planning on holding a retreat and offered to help. I think I almost cried. Something, I learned through this whole thing, is when you start living your truth, other people want to help you. I was so blessed to have Julie.

The wonderful thing about spring in Grey/Bruce county is that every day the nature around you changes. I have taken that for granted but Julie (who is from Arizona) reminded me how amazing it is. We watched an apple tree go from tiny buds to in bloom over the course of a few days. It occurs to me that Soul Restoration and soul work in general is much like that. While we were transforming, so was that beautiful tree.

  The benefit of having a small group is I was also able to participate in all the activities and subsequently complete Soul Restoration again, Julie too. So as we watch our guest transform, so did we. It does not matter how many times you take Soul Restoration, another layer gets peeled off every time.

It was such a good time that I'm already planning my next one. Tentative date is May 21 - 25. For more info you can email me hello@wildflowersouls.ca And watch my website. I'm hoping registration will be open Oct or Nov.

Thank you for stopping by. All photos by Julie from http://jthorntonphotos.com/

Wildflower Souls

Friends, I'm so excited to present my new logo to you today! My amazing sister Patti MacKinnon of designamyte created my logo for me. She is particularly skilled at topography, so I urge to check her out if you are looking for something like that.

I just love it. Freedom and whimsy. I think I'll put this on EVERYTHING, you've been warned.

2018 a vision

Hello friends,
Last week I was encouraged by my coach to share my 2018 vision with the universe. I chose to do a FB live on my personal page last week. I was so nervous that I forgot to share much of what I wanted to share. So I decided, I'd also share my vision here on my blog.
A great way to declare a vision is to speak as if you have already achieved the vision you are declaring. So, if you ask me at the end of 2018 how my new business venture went, this is what I'll say.

2018 was amazing!! I've created and grown Wildflower Souls into a safe space for women to reconnect with their one true soul. My sister Patti, created an amazing logo for me. It completely embodies everything Wildflower Souls is. She, along with my bestfriend and IT guy, Andre have created a beautiful website for me. I've learned how to use MailChimp to send beautiful and joyful newsletters to my growing email list.
I've held 6 free SoulBook gatherings in my home this year. Sarah, from Her Wellness downtown has also provided rental space for me and I have held 4 other Brave Girl workshops there. Even women I have never met have joined me. Every women who joined me in these gatherings and workshops have left with a renewed self love and a taste of what Soul Restoration is. Many are telling me that they now feel as if they have enough love to also give to our community.
My May retreat, held at Summer Park House on Miller Lake, sold out. In fact, there was more interest than I had expected. It was exactly what I hoped for. Darci and her amazing staff helped me and my helpers create an AMAZING retreat space. The peace and calm of the lake feeling our souls. My 10 guests walked away with renewed love for themselves and others. We celebrated our sameness. We created pretty personal art. The women learned that their story matters. The women realized that they are beautiful souls that are still learning, they realized that the women next to them are beautiful souls who are still learning. They gave each other an abundance of grace cards. My women discovered that no matter what age they are, they are still becoming. They still have dreams and hopes and those dreams and hopes matter. I witnessed miracles. Darci and I are already planning for 2019. 
I learned a lot about being a leader. I learned to plan big and small events. I learned how to make a budget for those events, which lead me to making a budget for myself. WHAT!? I had a lot of help this year. The more I showed up for this big dream, the more the people I loved showed up to help me. I created connection this year. And I can't wait to see what I create in 2019!!

So there you have it folks, this is what my 2018 will look like.

Glue is good for the soul.

Hi Friends!

I'm so happy to tell you that my very first workshop Soul Book went really well. We were a small group, though I believe the women that were meant to be there, were there. I know many of you expressed interest in join us but were in available this time around, don't worry I will be doing this again. More on that at the end of the post.

The weather outside was not awesome but inside was nice and warm and cheery. We had two crock pots filled with warm winter food and cheese filled turkey wraps (I've been enjoying those left overs), a perfect combination of comfort foods. I had opted for a pot luck lunch and I will totally do that again. As women, even when we are meant to be guests, we want to help the hostess and having a potluck was the perfect way to make this happen. And I was able to be completely present because I didn't have to be away from them, preparing our lunch.

Each women came with their own crafty skills, we had a sewer and a painter, and they used those skills in their books. Two completely different beautiful books were created. Because we were a small group, I worked on my sample book, using mostly only a glue stick  and paper. My objective here is to show a very simple example, proving that ANYONE can complete this project.

There was complete silence while we cut out our statements. But, it wasn't until we got to the end of the day and the women shared some of the pages they made, that I knew that is project is life changing. I could see that it was doing for them, what it had done for me. It was pretty cool to watch that.

Soul Book is a beautiful gentle reminder of who you really are. A reminder that your life makes a difference. It's even more special because you make it yourself. I believe that everyone should have the opportunity take this course, so I've decided that as long as I am meant to teach, Soul Book will always be offered for FREE. Check out my workshops link on the side panel and you will see my next Soul Book offering there.

I hope this find you well. Love you!

SoulBook Gathering

It seems to me that the world is in turmoil. The hate sounds very loud right now doesn't it?  It does not have to be that way. We can all choose love and kindness. Some times it can seem overwhelming to choose kindness and love.  Hard to know where to start. The answer is very simple, you start with yourself and continue one person at a time.

BraveGirls/BraveLiving have come up with a wonderful soul filled event to get us started on loving ourselves first.

Please join me in my home for this FREE SoulBook Gathering. We will create an adorable chunky book which will remind us of what is important. Take some time before the hustle and bustle of the holiday season for some self-care. Bring a friend or come yourself.

Space is limited and some instructions and a supply list will need to be sent to participants prior to the gathering, so please be sure to RSVP by sending an email to cadair@bmts.com

There are two event options to choose from:
Wednesday November 15, 7-9 for three weeks
Saturday November 18, 10- 4 potluck.

I would love for you to join me. Please email me at cadair@bmts.com if you have any questions.

A new adventure

Hello Friends!

I know it has been a long time and I hope to do better at that in the near future. I want to give you an update with a new exciting adventure I'm embarking on. I'm starting my own business and it will be centred around a life changing course from Brave Girls Club (soon to be Brave Living) called Soul Restoration.

I've completed this curriculum twice at camp and twice online and spent the last week training on the content. I believe in this course. It has given me tools to live a brave life, an every day life. Everyone has wounds, everyone has lies they have believed for a long time, no one gets out of this world with out them. And no one has to let those things define you. You are not your wounds, you are not your lies. You have more control over your life than you think you do. That is what Soul Restoration has taught me. It has truly changed my life and it changes my life every time I do it. Even in training last week, I cleaned out more stuff.  Think of every lie you have believed about yourself. Soul Restoration can help you tell the truth about those things.

I 100% believe in this curriculum and believe every human soul can benefit from it, as long as you are willing to do the work, cause some of it will be really hard. And you wont be alone, your restoration will be with you and I'll be your guide through the course.

So here's the deal, I'll be bringing Soul Restoration to my circle. I'm not 100% sure what that will look like yet. There will be some workshops I'll be offering as a taster and to start I'll probably be offering Soul Restoration in my home done over a number of weeks. I'm also willing to do Soul Restoration one on one if someone wishes (it's usually done in a group setting).

Please stay tuned, I'll be updating you more soon.
