The Village. Finding Connection

The Village.

We used to be connected automatically to community and now it is trickier than ever.

I've been noticing connection recently in class. A new student will find a past acquaintance when she arrives, friends registering together and new friendships forming.

Last Thursday, my dear colleague Sarah Jean brought her Jesus Christ Superstar rock opera Nia for the 3rd year.

We had a record number of students-over 30 peeps- in the room. People came from London and people brought family members.

So much fun.

I was struck by how a few strands of connection started years ago keeps weaving and strengthening into a solid web.

A web that offers support, meaning and a sense of belonging that I am thankful for each day.

Thank you to the fabulous crew who were able to make the class and all of you who connect and support each other thru classes, events and retreats.

Outrageous Happiness - The Deets on Nia in Newfoundland 2018

Exploring Coves on the way to Woody Island

Halton Region Small Business centre offers free one-on-one coaching. (I highly recommend it for your business. See link below)  Last week, we filled in a form about what makes the Newfoundland Nia trip special.  Here is what I wrote:

The Newfoundland Nia retreat is mostly for: friendly, active 40+ women who love to move, have fun with others and see new places but who don't want to organize it, worry about transportation or be part of a ridged bus tour.

We have created: a week long get away that includes moving and dancing nia, good food, fun activities and exploring interesting places at an easy pace.

This will help participants: have an active, refreshing all-inclusive week without the headache of renting cars, getting bored in one place or choosing underwhelming experiences

Newfoundland 2018 is different because: insider Elaine Dunphy is on the ground  and has searched out a variety of unique, high quality places and experiences.
People will feel happy, healthy and  get a real taste of Newfoundland without managing aches and stiffness from too much driving or the exhaustion of a whirlwind tour.


Do you relate?  Does this sound like you?  Are you looking for something that really spices up  your summer?
