October 24, 10-4 Mountain Time/9-3pm Pacific
A Virtual Retreat
Feeling ready to go for it?
This being human isn't easy. Our core stories and issues follow us everywhere. Sometimes they have the power of trumpets, sometimes background music. You know the stories I'm talking about – the “I'm not good enough, I'm doing it wrong, It's your fault or it's my fault, I can't do it, etc.,”
These stories, which we often believe to be absolutely true, arise out of our unconscious minds and often become obsessive thoughts that destroy or at least minimize our capacities to live the life we came to live. But what to do? As I said earlier in the video, I'm 67, and I haven't managed to get rid of them, avoid them or even suppress them. (Probably not going to happen.) I have discovered they always have a positive intention – their expression is just a bit on the cranky side though.
I'd like to spend a day with you and your willing heart seeing what we can do together to integrate these stories. When we learn to respect and honor them, even kiss them on their foreheads, they no longer have a charge and are not in charge. They become part of the orchestra but no longer have the solo lead.
This quarterly virtual retreat is a time to listen deeply to all the wisdom and inner knowing that lives inside you. And, You get to receive guided support in processing through your baggage. The soul qualities of mercy, depth, clarity & humor will guide us.
Does Patricia know how to lead a soulful retreat?
This is a low stress way to experience retreat (soul-to-soul) (home-to-home). I've been teaching workshops, trainings and seminars around the world for almost 4 decades. I am known for going directly to the heart of the matter and being incredibly resourceful in the countless ways healing can occur.
In addition, I have received a Master's in Counseling(1978) and have attended the top five life coaching schools in the United States. I have had thriving private practices in Seattle, Denver and Santa Fe. I've studied with teachers all over the world and have integrated their teachings into my own hybrid model of working with students. You get the best of the coaching and counseling worlds. Learn more about Patrica.
I have been guided to offer these retreats and I won't just be working with you on the calls.
I'm already welcoming you on a daily basis and will hold the space for your transformation during the retreat. SOUL TRANSFORMATION, MY OWN AND YOURS, IS WHAT MATTERS MOST TO ME IN THIS LIFE!
Do I need special qualifications to attend?
No, your willing heart is all we need. You might appreciate having a journal for our breaks.
I'll be leaving you with provocative questions each time we break.
What happens within the retreat?
We will be setting aside the time from our busy lives to be secluded in our home spaces. The day is intended to be held in silence except for the group calls. Your time will be spent in contemplation, napping, light physical exercise, journaling or your own spiritual practices. This is not a day for business or activity. This is a “being” day not a “doing” day.
What if I can't attend every session? Will I still get value?
Absolutely. There is no need to be “perfect”. Come when you can. Even if you are not on a particular call, you can hold a retreat-like mind set. If there is an appointment that can't be rescheduled, feel free to go and then return to the retreat for the next call.
Here's the schedule (All times are Mountain Standard Time)
10a 90 Min. visualization, centering to begin the day, asking for help from the
Source which is both deep within us and much vaster than us

A few closing lines from Rumi:
Come, come whoever you are. Wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving. It doesn't matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair. Come, even if you have broken your vows thousands of times. Come, Come, come yet again!
