Do you hear a constant nagging in the back of your mind? Telling you that you aren't doing enough. You're not being enough.
You're just not enough.
You live your days fighting anxiety and overstimulation with no hope for a better future.
Constantly on empty.
Is there more than this?
The Art of Rest is an immersive, all-inclusive experience that will give rest to your weary bones and give you tools to create the life that your heart is craving.
A life lived from a place of inner rest.

Meet Our 5 Speakers
Gabs - Vision Board Workshop
Hi, I’m Gabs and I love to create.
I create stories and ideas, pretty things and weird things. The things I create are typically small, imperfect and just for myself. So I am thrilled to have the opportunity to share some of them with you and make some new things together.
I started making vision board collages in January 2019 as a way to usher in the new year and get a sense for what I hoped to accomplish and experience over the next twelve months. For me, this opened the door to other forms of collage, which I have found to be a rich and meaningful form of expression.
Creating a vision board gives the opportunity to contemplate what makes you happy, what inspires you, and what sets you apart. It also creates a space to think about the hopes you have for the future. In this session, your creativity will shine as you draw inspiration from the present to dream forward, towards your beautiful future.
Natalie - Creating Supportive Routines Class
Hello there, I’m Natalie and I am an artist, herbalist, and gardener. I am inspired by nature and the changing seasons. As the world gathers speed, I embrace a slower pace of life to enjoy the little details to find more balance and meaning. I share my truth to teach others how they can deepen their connection with themselves, others, and the world around us
Routines should not restrict but support us. We’ll talk about how to build daily routines that are consistent, and flexible with the intention of supporting our well-being. We will redefine productivity and share practices that can help you increase self-awareness, reduce stress, and cultivate a positive mindset. My goal is to help you align your routines with your personal goals and values, so you can set yourself up for fulfilling days.
Regina - A Conversation of Hope
Hi, I’m Regina. A wife, mom of 4 and gammy of 3. I love enjoying community and being surrounded by family. I express myself through creating beautiful spaces and tablescapes, it’s something that I thoroughly enjoy. Above all else, I am realizing that I am a life-long learner, uncovering who I am created to be.
Hope is what helped me journey through anxiety and depression. Hope carried me through the loss of my child. Hope is what gives me the freedom to thrive in life. When you walk away from this conversation, my prayer is that you will understand the depths of hope. That it is an expectation of good. That it can teach you to thrive when your circumstances say you can't.
Dina - Honoring Your "Yes" Session
Hello, I’m Dina. I’ve been married for 25 years, I’m a mom and grandma. Family is my first passion; loving & caring for them has been a privilege. These memories will last a lifetime. Secondly, comes my desire to see women of all ages find their voice and be able to freely live their authentic self. I don’t hold any degrees, but share from my personal life experience of how the Lord has led me and revealed His goodness to me. I enjoy traveling, all things outdoors and finding new coffee shops.
Do you feel like your life is on a continual hamster wheel? Leaving you exhausted the majority of the time? If so, this session will give you understanding and tools to take control of the hamster wheel. Learning to identify your “Yes” and the “why” behind it and that healthy boundaries are your friend will leave you empowered to freely live your life authentically. There will be time for Q&A at the end of the session along with resources to take with you. Over the next few months I will be available for 1-1 sessions via meeting in person or on the phone.
Lorene - Connect with Beauty
Hello friend, I am Lorene, an Appalachian woman with whom the spirit of sovereignty runs deep. I love to have my bare feet on the ground and hands in the soil, looking after our sacred space called home. Rewilding the land we steward into a permaculture food forest. My north star is a life-long adventure of creating an environment for my family that functions excellently in the everyday, drenching our soul, spirit and bodies with healing, nourishment, creativity, and beauty.
When I began my journey, I felt hopelessly stuck in my stories of inadequacy and unworthiness. I was exhausted from chasing fixes, and covering the dis-ease with bandaids. All I wanted was to heal my life from within. Following my curiosity I committed myself to one year of single mindedly choosing life and aligning my choices with these two questions: what is the beautiful truth about God, and who I am. A decade later, my entire story has been transformed and daily I continue to surrender my soul to what is inherently true.
Today I walk alongside women who want to come home to the inherent truth of who they are. As they transform stories and create their personalized Eden. In this workshop you will learn how to connect with God’s inherent beauty. To live from it, rather than towards it. You will also be able to take home a simple and functional practice to apply to more areas of your life as you are ready.
