NEW! Online Course with Gail


  • Deeping Your Connection with Nature
    Create Your Own Journal of a Sacred Encounter
    Begins January 8!

    I'd love to have you join me for this new online course that has grown out of my recently published book, Walking the Grove: Journal of a Sacred Encounter. The course is from  January 8 to February 5, 2020.

    In this course you will explore various methods for experiencing nature as a vehicle for a relationship with the Sacred. You'll create a journal for recording the experiences you have and the revelations and messages you receive. You'll be guided in setting up a personal routine for your appointments with nature. You'll explore the plants and animals and weather in the area you select. The course will be offered via a private Facebook group. Assignments will be posted there, and you will also be able to post your questions and your responses to the assignments, and any of the revelations you receive. Interaction with the group is encouraged. You will work through the course materials at your own pace, and there are no specific requirements for you to be online at any particular time. If you do not wish to join the Facebook group, you will be sent email instructions each week.

  • Florida Creative Conference

    Florida Creativity Conference

    March 5-8, 2020
    Sarasota, Florida

    Gail is speaking again at this prestigious conference! This time the topic is Creativity and the Labyrinth of Your Mind.

    The labyrinth is a walking meditative tool in use since 2000 BCE to center the mind and calm the spirit. As you enter into a labyrinth you release your fears and blocks, find clarity when you reach your center, and receive new ideas and insights to take out into the world. These same meditative benefits can be applied to focus a creative mind -whether you need to be more original or to quiet and select the best of the many options that flood your thoughts. In this workshop, learn the power of the labyrinth to support any creative process or decision you are facing, and the benefits of combining mindfulness with the creative process, Participants will be provided with a paper labyrinth for class exercises and to take home for future projects.
