Inspiring class offerings this Winter that you won’t want to miss!
Some of the classes are Life Coaching classes designed to help you dig deeper and explore wildly the transitions you are currently facing….or need to face, as well as helping you to get very clear about the words you use to describe who you are, what you (or your business) is doing, and what your ultimate vision really is. It’s amazing how many people (and businesses) fumble when speaking about their vision and leave the listener completely in the dark. These classes will help shed light on your path and demystify your objectives to both yourself and others. Look for these classes below under: Life Coaching
Other classes I’m teaching are by way of Design. As you may or may not know, I have been working with florals and other natural elements for over 20 years! Weddings, Holiday’s, Themed Events, you name it, I’ve probably done it. Working with nature has brought me so much JOY in my life that I have decided to teach others how to do the same. I just can’t keep all this fun to myself any longer! Therefore, I’ll be teaching year round classes at Dragonfly Farm up here in Sonoma County. Dragonfly Farm is a six-acre organic flower farm. They grow most of what they use for their weekly accounts and speciality arrangements as well as design some of the most beautiful wedding flowers on the planet! They do that and so much more! The Farm is open to the public for strolling and picnicking and they also offer wreath making classes over the holiday period. Look for these classes below under: Design
Life Coaching Classes: these classes are offered through Healdsburg Community Center and registration is through them as well. To sign up for these classes click above or call: 707-431-3300.
Reinventing Yourself: 50 and Up!
Sat. Jan. 25th, 10-3PM. Cost: $75
Life transitions offer opportunities for us to reevaluate and reinvent. The years from 50 onward often find people in transition from what was their primary career to wondering what is next.

This day-course will help you to explore:
Where you are right now and where you want to go.
- What skills and assets you have that are universally transferable.
- Your core Values and how they influence your decisions.
- How to set new priorities based on your current situation.
- Your “ideal” lifestyle.
- How to “let go” of that which no longer serves you.
