My birthday wish this year is to generate one tuition [or more] for a young woman to attend She Rock She Rock, the home to Girls Rock n Roll Retreat which takes place in Minneapolis, MN each summer. This is one of my favorite 501(c)3 non-profit organizations in the land; I know them personally and adore the work they are committed to with our future humans! As a former student of all-women's education, I can attest to how environment and deeply interested, loving leadership helps foster the development of a young woman's Voice.
For one week, young women musician campers ages 9-16 spend their days forming bands, attending instrument classes, writing music, and performing their compositions live in front of a huge audience of their friends and family. They are receiving an opportunity to create, to become confident, and to put it out there in the world, YEAH!
So here's to hoping that people [that's you!] are suckers for birthdays.
In the interest of generating this tuition in a positive fashion, I'm holding a feel-great Forrest yoga workshop/practice [with extras?] this Sunday.

"Just tell 'em it's your birthday, people will come." or How it Works
1. Review the She Rock She Rock site. Make sure it's something with which you stand.
2. RSVP for Sunday class by emailing me--I'll reply quickly with confirmation.
Due to room size, I can host a practice for about 12 people. No one will be turned away, if more than 12 people donate that want to practice, I will host an overflow event next weekend, October 5. I will post here when we reach the overflow threshold.
But the best reason of all to participate…
Beyond the bribe of a yoga workshop, you’ll feel awesome about yourself for doing real good for our future women. This is a fantastic experience for the greater creative unfoldment.
Trust me. It feels great.
Thank you for reading this post. You are all rock stars, and I continue to write on this blog purely because of you.
Full of Life!
