Ready to create a visit that is totally about you? Consider one of the following packages offered in partnership with some of Joplin’s top attractions:

Healing Holiday

Are you learning to live with loss? Having survived my own life-altering event when the May 22, 2011 tornado ripped through Joplin and having had many deaths in my life, I’ve created a VIP mid-week experience to help you move through the emotions of the loss and identify and design the next steps of your recovery plan. This is a customized retreat that requires a pre-booking interview. Please call me at 417-438-6808 to discuss the details.

Weekend Writer

Have an idea for a book but just don’t know where to start? Bring your laptop, your notes and your focus to the Creative Cottage and leave with your own book. You’ll have time to write and receive personal coaching from me, a published author of 3 books and numerous articles for regional and national magazines. Our first session starts Friday at 7 p.m. and concludes Sunday at 5 p.m. Fee: $600 including private suite and personal coaching

Business Visioning

Are you an entrepreneur who’s ready to take your business to the next level? Join me for a two day visioning session and leave with a visual map of your next steps to growth, prosperity and success.

Meditations in Clay

Looking for more peace and calm in your life? Find that peaceful vibe in a meditation with clay session at Phoenix Fired Art, Joplin’s premiere pottery studio.
