Transitions and New Beginnings

March 3 @ 6:00 pm March 5 @ 1:00 pm

Presented by Barb Bickford and Sandy Salvo

We have all experienced transitions — some by choice and some not – including new jobs, retirement, relationship changes, illness, grief, or new roles such as caregiver or empty-nester.  Each day we cross thresholds or sacred markers between where we’ve been and where we hope to go.

Join us for a safe, gentle, and creative experience as we explore how to move with grace and intention through our “Transitions and New Beginnings”.

In the restorative, peaceful setting of St. Anthony Spirituality Center, we will pause to talk, play and worship together. Through intuitive painting, journaling, and mindful movement, we will connect to a source of inner guidance and listen deeply to the messages that are arising.

Note: This workshop isn’t about creating art for display or approval, nor is it about learning specific techniques. It is about allowing your unique creative expression to point you toward insights into your heart’s deepest desires. Artistic talent is not needed. Only curiosity is a must!

This workshop is led by Barb Bickford and Sandy Salvo, who have both lived through significant life transitions and are willing to walk with you for a time as you walk through yours. 

Come, join us for a restorative weekend of healing and movement toward new beginnings that we choose to create!

Barb Bickford designs and leads transformational workshops and trains people on how to lead better meetings. She lives and gardens in Stillwater, MN with her husband and an elderly cat.

Sandy Salvo is a retreat planner, certified Qigong instructor, and leadership trainer.  She and her husband live in Middleton, WI and enjoy anything and everything to do with water, nature, and grandkids.

Registration begins at 3:00 pm on Friday, followed by orientation at 5:45 and supper at 6:00. The retreat concludes after the noon meal on Sunday.
