What a great Workshop Day!
We held a Sparkle On! Women's Workshop Day on June 29, 2017 at the Minnesota Arboretum, and it was a great success. It was a success due to multitude of women attending and sharing of themselves. I have always believed that when women come together, magic happens. It is something that brings a wonderful, sacred feeling, yet is very hard to describe. Where there is the spirit of women gathering, power is felt. I truly felt blessed to be a part of a larger group of women that came together to learn, share and laugh together.
Our day was filled with informative speakers offering information and perspectives about topics impacting women as they age. Topics included gratitude, nutrition,fitness and mindfulness. The beautiful surrounding of the Arboretum only added to the magic of the day. Imagine being in a venue of beautiful foliage, flowers, water features and walking paths all available for us to take advantage of. It was a picturesque backdrop to add more beauty to the day! Simply put: It was perfect.
I want to give a personal shout out to all of the women who gave of themselves as a presenter, vendor, sponsor and behind the scenes worker bee. If even one of these women were not there to help, it would not have been the same day. Their efforts and effects did not go unnoticed.
At the end of the day I was completely filled with 'We are on to something here' feeling. So we will do this again October 14! I would love to see even more women attending and being able to share even just a piece of themselves...even little pieces can be put together to create the most beautiful of puzzles.
