Cosmic Cow Pie: Connecting the Dots


Girlfriends, Do You Need To Reboot Your Brain?

Girlfriends, Do You Need To Reboot Your Brain?

When is the last time you really had:

  • mad fun  (thank you Carolyn Tann Star)                                     Wizard of OZ
  • got crazy
  • had a little fantasy
  • learned
  • laughed
  • cried

with your girlfriends?

Are you ready to go boldly into WHAT’S NEXT?

You may be a little tired, or discouraged or unsure or just not certain about              who you are and what you really want. The economy may have you scared and feeling less than on top of your game….

For sure…. you know you could use some time without distractions... Some time to relax, reboot and re-connect with what’s important to you….not just what the world seems to expect from you.

Do you want to connect with your source and come away with something for the soul?

How about…a.. just us girls weekend?

It's easy to understand that "SHIFT Happens."  Do you remember "As The World Turns?"  It seems like our world is spinning and it might be a good idea to get off the hamster wheel and talk with people who are working through all the change with balance and joy! Once you have a new view, at a higher altitude you can help others and everyone rises to a new level.

supportive circle of women to giggle  (or cry) with.

In a simple, cool setting with all your needs met for 3 days at the gateway to the Grand Canyon?

Would this work?

Totally cool!!!! Because that’s what we have in mind

IF the ideas above are ringing any bells then "Girlfriends Reinvention Weekend to Reboot Your Brain Camp" is FOR YOU!

Embracing “Cosmic Shift Happens ™”  in all aspects of life, is part of the vision of the weekend!! 

Master Certified Coach, Joeann Fossland and I have partnered to create a way for YOU to experience a fun 3-day break from all the BUSYNESS...... Think about how taking a step back to reboot might help with forward progress.

                          Girlfriend Circle


What: A 3 day girlfriend-only "Reboot your Brain" Camp Weekend
(think... slumber party, relax, giggle, reframe and rejuvenate)

When: Friday through Sunday, August 19-21st

Where: Williams AZ (where it is cool in the mountains in summer)

What's Included: 3 Days to Connect with other Amazing Women, Time to relax and reflect, Time to Play, Structured mini-seminars to Learn & Grow, Meals & Snacks from Friday night through Sunday morning, Camp Lodging Friday & Saturday and much more!!!!

What Will We Be Doing? Here's the tentative schedule.

How Much? Early Bird Registration $322 OR sign up with a girlfriend -- not just for real estate people, bring your best friend or anyone needed a reboot! -- for $297 (you each save $25) OR Enter to WIN one of TWO FREE Registrations! (after July 30, the cost will be $399.)

So... perhaps it all sounds goods and you know you want to come...

Cool! Sign up now (and we'll refund your money if you win the contest!)

OR... perhaps it all sounds good BUT...

  • You are doing something else that weekend... oh my, I haven't the power to enable you to be in 2 places at once... we'll miss you!
  • It's too far away... consider going to see the Grand Canyon or Sedona and taking a few extra days to really have a vacation (you deserve it, you know!)
  • It's too much money... Enter the contest :>)
  • It's too much money or any other reason other than you just aren't interested... That may be EXACTLY the reason to take a leap of faith and come, because it IS about Rebooting and getting unstuck or at least a new, lighter'll walk away with a new excitement and empowerment to make the 2nd half of the year extraordinary!

We're also randomly giving away registration prizes andSleeping Bag
you have a 1 in 6 chance of selecting one of the gifts if your registration number is one of the lucky choices!

There is a very cool contest to enter and 2 lucky ladies are going to have a place at this event for free.  Check out the rules... it's easy.. write 250 words about what you have to share and how coming will make a difference for you... then tweet, post, e-mail or video to share with the world.  Extra points are given for social media love so blog away and have some fun with this. 

Bear cubs at Bearizona

We will be talking to the animals at Bearizona, going to a gunfight on the street in Williams, AZ and cruising Rt. 66 to experience all the nostalgia of this historic area.

This really is a Reboot CAMP so bring your sleeping bag, cowboy boots and an open mind.

We are going to learn, laugh and be inspired to a new way of thinking!

You know what they say about all work and no play!

Carra-sounds like a wonderful idea.  I just came back from my annual beach week with friends (guys included too).  It is a great chance for all of us to reconnect, spend time talking about our lives and laugh.  Your weekend retreat sounds like it would be a wonderful time for everyone who can go.

I need to get away so bad and this would be just want I need.  I'll read more about it.  Who knows?  Maybe I could figure out a way to be there.

This sounds like a great idea.  We have a group that is doing a trip as well.  It is so important to allow fun, downtime.

Barbara ~  It is so important in this fast paced world to stop and reboot... to keep on track and remember our purpose for life in general.. this will leave people with a little something for the soul!  Would love to have you come.. or at least enter the contest!

Carra, Girls get togethers are always fun. The last one I had was watching Mamma Mia, again, and singing all those Abba songs.

Posted by Donna Malone, Homes and Property for Sale Nova Scotia (Waterfront, Luxury, Family, Affordable, Cottage, Deals) about 9 years ago

Donna that sounds so fun!  We are creating a play list for the Fridnight BBQ and that is a great idea... the ABBA songs are so great!  I know all the words:) Thanks for the great idea!

Carra, in an attempt to stay abreast of happenings in the female World your title drew me here c/o Margaret Rome.  Not that we're lacking mind you, but XX's are just that, eXtra special, while we XY's, often self proclaimed Wise, are usually just wondering Y's.  I sense a great event when I see this, whether your limitation is 14 or 4,000 attendees there will be "re-invention" taking place.  The timing couldn't be better from the buzz I hear around me.       

Posted by Kevin J. May, Serving the Treasure & Paradise Coasts of Florida (Florida Supreme Realty) almost 9 years ago

Kevin.. here you are on the other side!  How cool is that!  Margaret ROCKs!  The women who feel the buzz will be here and the results will be helping others from the experience.. so it's all good.. paying it forward with love and fun!  Rebooting for good!  Thank you Kevin for your encouragement and participation!

Hi Carra,  Sounds like a great time, I wish I could be there but I will be participating in the Iron Girl Triathlon in Columbia, MD on the 21st.  A whole different kind of girls only event!  I just know you will have a fabulous time!!
