Participant Comment

When I signed up to participate in the one day retreat “Tapestry of Grace,” I really had no expectations but I did know something good was going to come out of this opportunity. Oh and it did!

The circle of trust was truly a circle of trust. I could say anything without feeling judged or out-casted. I don’t think I have ever felt that comfortable in a group of complete strangers. I felt empowered, enlightened and grounded.

I loved listening to everyone else’s life experiences and being in the moment. I wasn’t worried about getting my kids ready for the day, making dinner, thinking about work and what I have to get done, I was there 100%.

It was relaxing and exhausting but worth it all! I have already signed up for the Enneagram course in March! I am super pumped. Thank you Sandy for this amazing opportunity.

Join our Circle of Trust as we dialogue and weave a Tapestry of Grace. We will begin with a poem or short excerpt that will be sent to you ahead of time. We will explore it together, and from there open up a dialogue and Q & A.


In addition to having a number of handouts to draw from depending upon where Grace takes us, Sandy will be sharing new material that participants are finding instantly practical and transformational. The piece that Sandy will send to participants prior to the Retreat is focused on “Deep Honesty.” We will begin our journey together on this topic.  Join us for:

  • A taste of Educare
  • A refresher
  • A deepening… of your purpose
  • A wake-up call
  • An opening to new views of Grace
  • Answers to big questions
  • Questions to big answers
  • Listening in deep silence
  • Dictation space
  • Receive 4th dimension listening/coaching


Perhaps you would like to spend the day before the Retreat in solitude, opening and preparing for the feast. Or maybe dedicate the evening after the Retreat to listening quietly, cherishing what you saw and what Grace is continuing to reveal for you. Maybe you will want to take the next day in solitude as an extended retreat before you go home. Or, there is an option to have an individual session with Sandy.

Sunday Optional Individual Coaching Sessions

When the programs are on a Saturday, Sandy will also be available for individual one-hour appointments on Sunday for anyone interested: in person or over the phone. These will be on a first-sign up, first serve basis. 100% optional. Coaching Session fee is $45–$70.
