Hey Friends!!!  Here’s another way……..

In these types of fearful and tough times, most of us tend to separate ourselves, go silent, ruminate, and disconnect.  Well, I happen to believe that these times require the exact opposite response, in order for us to live healthy, peaceful and purposeful lives.  Now, MORE THAN EVER, we need the kind of self-care that circles and connects and shares and gathers.  We need to do this not only for ourselves, but for our families and our communities.  Taking care of ourselves, our souls, first is what will heal and inspire and spread the messages of all that connect us all on this planet.

And so I invite you to join us the weekend of November 10-12 here on our gorgeous ranch in the redwoods of Northern California, for a beautiful gathering of women who want to connect and learn and share and heal and play and laugh and love life, by doing the incredible Soul Restoration course together, with me, Lisa Palmer, as your guide.  THIS IS  A ONCE IN A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE!!!

We will circle in a safe and sacred circle, here in the Joy Barn.  Talk, listen, write, journal, do a bit of (easy) art that let’s us know our souls are listening.  Eat yummy food, breathe crisp clean air, marvel at the beauty of nature.  We will gather with purpose, form lifelong connections, and hold each other as we release the lies that keep us from living our soul’s true purpose.  This is THE BEST GIFT you can give yourself, your family, your community and the world.

COME JOIN US!!!  We have a spot waiting for you!!!  PLEASE CONTACT ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS!!!!!

Are you ready for a TUNE-UP?

Well, I’ve got just the ticket for you!!  It’s been a lonnnnnnnnnng year, hasn’t it?  So much turmoil and loss in our world.  A lot of the time it’s hard to keep a positive hopeful outlook.  Especially when you’re dealing with rough stuff in your own life and/or still unable to move forward from past hurts.  Life can just feel so difficult and disconnected.  I know that feeling all too well!!!!

And there’s something else I know very well:  the SOUL RESTORATION curriculum holds the key to what you can learn to soothe your soul.  And I’m teaching it!!!!  Here in my Joy Barn!!!!  Over a very affordable 3-day Veteran’s Day weekend in November!!!  I’m a Certified Instructor of this life-changing course, which changed my life.  I have taught this course to women here, on our ranch, and the basic concepts to hundreds of women staying in homeless shelters — IT WORKS!!!!!  As I have witnessed over and over and over.  And I continue to work it’s lessons when things start to go south in my own life, or when I’m feeling stuck and just blah. IT NEVER FAILS TO RESTORE MY HOPE AND POSITIVE OUTLOOK ON LIFE!

We have a fabulous group of women coming to connect and circle on this magical weekend, and we’d LOVE for you to be a part of it!!!!  Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have ANY questions! xoxo

Hey EVERYBODY!!!!! Are you coming to Symposium? Now’s the time to sign up for all the FUN and MAGIC and SOULFUL CONNECTION!!!

And watch this fun FB live video (below) featuring the inimitable BGC founders Melody and Kathy explaining all about it: what it is, why it is, how it’s going to happen, so many great things planned JUST FOR YOU!!!  It’s July 6-8 (or 5-9 if you want to tack on bonus days, they’ll explain in the video) in beautiful Boise, Idaho!!  Right on the Boise River.

If you weren’t there last year, I was one of the speakers, and I shared about my experiences of working with homeless humans and teaching the basic concepts of Soul Restoration at shelters and group homes. What I’ve learned, what the TRUTH is. The response was TREMENDOUS! And it started a new wave of awareness and action about and for our unhoused fellow humans, which continues to SNOWBALL!! All the people who were inspired to start taking action in their own communities, all the people who’ve connected with me for encouragement and advice and asking me to teach what I’ve learned. And if you were there last summer, maybe you’re one of the people who’ve connected with me about this, and who’ve been asking me how to get started doing the same thing.

Wel l l l l l l l l l l l l…….. GUESS WHAT??? That’s EXACTLY what I’m going to do at this year’s SYMPOSIUM, at a breakout session (hear about those at 6:25 in the video). I’m going to be doing a TRAINING for how to teach an abbreviated SR course at shelters and group homes!!! As well as more general insights and discussion about how to help those mightily struggling all around us, unhoused, ignored.

I’ll be sharing more about it in the weeks to come!!! But in the meantime, if your servant heart is called to do this incredibly uplifting and life-changing work, then PLEASE COME and join me at my breakout session!!! AND COME ENJOY with me the ENTIRE Symposium and all its beautiful blessings….sign up NOW at: http://bit.ly/2oauSza
YOU ARE WORTH IT!!!!!!!!!

VIDEO: All About Symposium

Let me explain……

Do you know I have two different all-inclusive retreats coming up in June and August?  I’m getting lots of questions because inquiring minds want to know…….

What is the difference between the Soul Restoration Retreat and the Soul Sistering Camp?

The Soul Restoration Retreat is where the world-famous life-changing Melody Ross-created Brave Girls Club’s full Soul Restoration course is taught by me, Lisa Palmer, a Certified Instructor.  This retreat is a safe place of total acceptance where you are immersed in the beauty of nature and will connect with other women who are also seeking to let go of the lies that are keeping us stuck .  We will learn the beautiful truth about ourselves, and have the tools we need to move forward into our amazing important awesomely unique lives!  Please read more about it, and how to register, on the Soul Restoration Retreat page.

The Soul Sistering Camp is a joyful place where we celebrate YOU.  A place where you will rest and recalibrate to the rhythms of nature and sisterhood, and where the practices of self care and soul care are expanded to include creativity and adventure!  This camp is designed to be a next step and a guide for honoring your story and your passions, and it is not affiliated with Brave Girls Club or the Soul Restoration curriculum.  This is something I have been working on for years, and I am SO EXCITED to be able to finally share it with you!  Please read more about it on the Soul Sistering Camp page.

We’d love to have you join us!!!  Any more questions?  Please feel free to email me at LISAVILLE13@GMAIL.COM

ANNOUNCING Soul Sistering Camps!!!!!

WOO HOOOOOOO!!!!!  Soul Sistering Camps are now open for registration!!!  This is a dream I’ve been working on for the past couple of years and I’m SO EXCITED to bring this to you!!!!  Check out all the beautiful details here:  Soul Sistering Camp

Soul Sistering Camp is all about celebrating YOU — by honoring and loving your soul through creativity and adventure and sistering.  Think of this as the most amazing summer camp of your dreams!  We will gather together and play and learn and make beautiful things and explore and dream and discover new things and share in a safe, kind and supportive circle of women.  This is a place of peace and acceptance and love and inspiration, a much-needed model of how women can come together and, quite literally, change their world.  And in doing so, change the world.

Soul Sistering Camp is a 5-day, 4-night all-inclusive retreat* held in the Art Barn on my family’s gorgeous ranch on the Russian River in Sonoma County, California.  I have created this camp for women who want to say “yes” to life and to moving forward with joy and hope.  This is a place where kindness is valued over being “right”, where having fun is everything, and where comparing is non-existent.

There will be music and laughter, campfires and fresh flowers, as well as time for quiet contemplation in these peaceful natural surroundings.  This is a place where time stands still.  Recalibrate to the rhythms of nature, alongside the gentle Russian River, unplug, with the forest, the birds, the amazing sunsets, the animals, the fresh air, the rolling hills of cow pastures, and a goat herd roaming the hills, all conspiring to heal weary souls.  Let yourself be loved.

My Symposium Talk!! The Art of Sistering

I’m so thrilled to be able to share this link with you!  For those of you who weren’t able to attend last summer’s inaugural Brave Girl Symposium (and for those of you who were there), and for those of you who are interested in our homeless fellow humans and want to hear about my journey with teaching Soul Restoration, here is my talk:  Lisa Palmer, Symposium 2016

img_9604

This was a watershed moment for me.  I am so honored to have had the opportunity to tell my story and shine a light on homelessness and our attitudes toward our fellow humans who are suffering all around us.  And the response was overwhelming!!!  So many people were touched and awoken to this, and heeded the call and started being more intentional about helping the homeless in their communities.  The snowball effect!  It’s real!!!!  It solidified the path I am now on, to re-frame the conversation and dispel the lies and myths about what it means to be homeless in our society, and what we can do about it.

img_9606

Brave Girls Club is gearing up for some big announcements for this year’s Symposium in July!  They are planning for another group of amazing speakers and entertainment and connecting and creativity and fun and shopping and art and and and……….AND in the next few weeks I will have some big exciting news about what I’m preparing for it, with regards to training people to share the messages of Soul Restoration with the homeless!!!  I am beyond excited!!!!!

You can go here Symposium 2016 Speakers to see all the speakers — a phenomenal group of women!!!!  

I’d love to hear your thoughts and questions, so feel free to leave me a comment.

There are so many things that get us out of alignment with who we are and leave our souls in disrepair. We often believe we need to change who we are when we don’t like the way life is going. We don’t need to change who we are…even if we feel like we want our life to change. We just need to RESTORE back to who we have always been.  That is the TRUTH.  And we will be learning what the truth is, and how we have been letting lies intrude on our souls.

img_0310

We will be journaling and making art and sharing and talking and burning stuff and burying stuff and eating yummy food and laughing and talking about what matters and enjoying the incredibly spectacular beauty of nature on this ranch!!  The miracles you will experience and witness will be life-changing!  And the sistering, the bonding with kindred souls, the connection and the acceptance, will be a lifelong blessing. I can’t tell you enough how deeply these 5 days will touch you and help guide you moving forward in your life, no matter what obstacles you see ahead of you.  This is truly the best kind of soul care.
