Transformative Healing Doll Playshop
Sunday, June 11, 2023 10:30 am - 3:30 pm
What intention are you holding for yourself? Taking on new adventures? Being more attentive to your emotional needs? Healing some part of yourself? Becoming less prone to anger? Growing your joy?
Join me for this transformational doll-making playshop. By putting your intention outside of yourself in the form of a doll, you'll gain new perspectives about your intention and about yourself. Doll making is a powerful medium for connecting with deep parts of ourselves and, in many cultures, dolls have long been used for the purpose of healing and transformation. Doll making has been one of the most powerful ways for me to gain new perspective and access information about the issues that challenge me.
In this workshop, you will:
- set an intention that will guide your work
- be encouraged to connect with your inner wisdom
- manifest a meaningful representation of a guardian for your life and work, a uniquely personal piece that will carry your intentions as you walk forward
- allow your intuitive knowing to flow into form
- utilize a journaling process to dialog with your creation
- begin to trust the sacred wise woman within
- learn basic techniques for making your own unique doll
Details: No artistic background required. Plenty of materials provided, though you are asked to bring anything that calls to come with you ~ fabric, charms, beads, moss, sticks, paper, ribbons, other things to personalize your doll.
Bring: journal, embellishments, bag lunch
Cost: $120. Registration and payment in advance is required; registration deadline is June 6.
You're joyfully invited to participate in these upcoming events. More offerings are in the works; sign up for my newsletter to receive updates. Endorsements of Anne's work are found HERE.
Begins May 17, 2023 (via Zoom)
A young sprout doesn't know what lies above ground; it simply follows its natural guidance towards the light. And that's our job -- to listen to that inner guidance and to follow it -- trusting our precious selves.
Prepare yourself for a nourishing and nurturing experience of growing trust. In this 4-week women's interactive gathering, we'll work with intentions, address perceived challenges, share strategies, and play with tools and spiritual practices to support our creative, magical journey.
Join me as I hold safe space for you to remember your innate wisdom and grow trust - in yourself, in others, and in life. If you'd like to know more about my background, click here to learn about me.

In this circle, we'll:
- build trust muscles
- take time to ground ourselves
- receive support from a circle of intentional women

Anne has such a gentle and inviting way of talking about her experience that is both powerful and impactful. She offered me multiple memorable teachings. - S. Tyler
I could be myself emotionally in your circle - and so could others, in a relatively short time. I definitely gained perspective on my life by listening to others speak from the heart about their life. - A. Chandler
There was a deep peacefulness and joy in being with all the women in your circle. It was a safe place to explore life’s challenges , triumphs, and mysteries. Enriching, and deeply satisfying. Thank you. - D. Mehner

Women's Circle: Inspirit the Women - Nov/Dec 2022
These are challenging times. But challenging times are not new. Throughout history, one of the ways people have navigated life challenges is by gathering together in a conscious way, and holding space for themselves and others as they journey toward greater truth. Together we cultivate strength, hope, and resilience.
Inspirit means (1) to put spirit or life into, (2) to fill with vigor. Inspirit the Women is inspired by years of support I received in spiritual circles. Early in life, as I was facing grave challenges, I sought support through many avenues. Sitting in spiritual community helped me know myself well, and cultivated a self-confidence and a faith in Spirit that I needed to bloom into my authentic self.
I've facilitated many spiritual circles face-to-face. Now with the power and convenience of meeting virtually (over Zoom), I'm grateful to provide this service to a wider audience.
Inspirit the Women is a place for conscious truth-seekers to meet for heart-storming, resilience-building, grounding, and reflection. It's not a place for answers so much as a safe space to be heard and held, to inquire and listen from the heart, to access tools for strength and resilience, to harness our wisdom, and to have access to greater truth.
If this resonates for you, I hope you'll join me. Here's how it works...
1. Complete the circle application HERE
2. I'll provide you with a link to a Zoom meeting which will take place on Wednesdays (November 9, 16, 30 and December 7, 14, and 21). All meetings will be at 7 pm Eastern U.S. time (New York City time zone).
3. You will receive an invitation to join our private FB group to access updates and support from me and our community of women.
4. This is my last women's circle offering for 2022, and space is limited. If spots fill, there'll be more offerings in 2023; please be sure you're on the newsletter list for early announcements.
A Fierce Belief in Miracles offers topics rich for discussion in any group, among them are overcoming adversity, intentions, healing, and forgiveness.
If your book club chooses to read this memoir, I'm happy to connect with the group, facilitate discussion, answer questions, and/or share a slide presentation of my healing dolls. The story inspires engaging and thought-provoking discussion, and working with groups of interested readers is one of my passions.
I'm available via zoom or locally in person once we're COVID safe. Please email me with requests.
A spiritual women's circle is forming and is becoming more clear in my visioning of it. Would you like to sit in sacred space with us? This is an opportunity to participate in intimate community, speak and listen from the heart, and to be witnessed as your authentic self.
Sitting in sacred circle with women has been one of my most enriching experiences. This will be offered via zoom. Days/times to be determined. If this interests you, please email me.
NEW! Spiritual Salons - FREE
In 18th century France, salons were organized gatherings hosted in private homes, usually by women, providing a place for women and men to congregate for intellectual discourse. These gatherings led to reduced marginalization of women in Paris.
My intent with Spiritual Salons is to provide space to address spiritual topics, to engage inner knowing, and inspire deeper spiritual connection. I invite your participation and questions. Subscribe to newsletter to receive updates.

Spiritual Dowsing - TBA
Spiritual Dowsing is one of the most powerful and simple practices I know; I utilize its teachings daily and am excited to share it with you.
Dowsing or divining is the art of tapping into your innate ability to explore the world of subtle energies that are everywhere within and around you.
In this workshop, you’ll learn to work directly with Nature and with the Divine to take charge of your life. Most importantly, you'll learn to use a blessing process to:
change detrimental energies that weaken you and can make you sick, into beneficial energies that strengthen you, heal you, and enhance your moods and relationships
attract new beneficial energies into your living environment
eliminate the harmful effects of electromagnetic fields (EMF's) that radiate from TVs, computer screens, microwave ovens, electrical wires, cellular phones, etc. You can actually make these energies beneficial to you and your loved ones with the Blessing Process.
attract what you most need and want into your life, drawing you ever closer to your highest potential as a spiritual being of Light.
