I enjoy helping others and giving back, especially while having fun. On this page you’ll find local organizations and events I’m involved in or find worthy of my, and your, attention. You can also find out what I’m offering outside of individual coaching and energy work sessions.
Women’s Wellness Retreat
Reduce stress, increase mindfulness and self-awareness, enhance creativity, re-energize yourself.
Scheduling for the next retreat is in the works. If you’re interested in attending one please email me.
Stress Management and Mindfulness
Seeking interested participants for a weekly class in Sunriver for learning and practicing techniques for lowering your stress level, getting in touch with your body and raising your happiness quotient. Free, with an optional donation going to a local charity or organization. Please call or email if you’re interested.
Joy and Wellness Through Dance
Dancing is a passion and this past fall I was honored to be a part of the local annual fundraiser, Swinging With The Stars—my second year participating as a ‘pro’ dancer. This fun night of dance performances by pairings of local dancers and business folks of all walks, benefits an amazing program, the Sparrow Clubs. We raised over $100,000 this year for this great organization—an all-time record for the event! Looking forward to my 3rd year. The event is held mid-October; watch the Tower Theatre listings in August…tickets sold out this year more than a month before the show!
This organization provides support and financial assistance to families with children who have very difficult, intensive medical issues, and works with other children in the schools to learn how to become mentors and community advocates. Visit http://www.swingingwiththestars.org to find out more about this fun event.
Helping Kids Through Books
If you’re looking for a worthwhile organization to volunteer for or donate to, consider the SMART program (Start Making A Reader Today). I’ve been reading weekly with students in my local school for many years. It’s great fun and so rewarding to see these young readers improve their reading skills and appreciation for books. Check out the website at http://www.getsmartoregon.org/ and discover the amazing statistics about the connection between reading skills and future life successes. Together we can give future generations a boost just by sharing books.
