What an absolutely wonderful workshop we had at the Sophia Institute in Charleston, SC this past weekend. 18 beautiful souls showed up on Saturday to go to a new level of their being regarding becoming fearless. Thank you Kelli, Pam B, Nicole, Joanne, Meredith, Di, Keith, Pam, Ariane, Lisa, Maryann, Charise, Carolyn, Dee, Char, Sheryl, Jeff, and Chris. Thank you for sharing, listening, helping others, supporting yourselves, encouraging others, and being there for me as well. This is a group that I definitely want to get together again with soon and continue our good work together. You made it a very special workshop for me. I also want to thank Pamela S. for being there when she could and for giving of herself so bravely. I would also like to thank those participants who came on Friday night but could not attend on Saturday. I am looking forward to seeing you again, too. A special thank to my friend, Carolyn Rivers of the Sophia Institute for having me back again for the 3rd year and for her undying support for helping us all have the opportunity to grow as human beings and evolve as souls. Also a special thank you to my friend, Chris, whose house is such a wonderful respite and haven during these times when her friend, Connie, needs to crash from time to time. And thank you, my dear Jeff, for being there for me in all ways and for adding so much to the group. You are also loved and appreciated by many.

General information

We look toward a world that could be called a wisdom society, a 21st century that could be called The Sophia Century: a conscious enlightened world, a compassionate global community, where wholeness, healing, sustainability, the conscious heart, deep wisdom, and the sacred feminine are at the center of life. As we face new challenges in a world of conflict, we are dedicated to the vision that together we can create a more conscious and enlightened world, a world in renaissance that expresses the vastness of the human potential.
