Retreats & Workshops to Renew Your Soul

Debra often folds many of her beloved stories into her retreats and workshops, which she customizes for any occasion.  Individual reflection time, instruction, group discussion and hands-on activities are woven into each program which can be designed around your time schedule; whether a one-hour event, afternoon workshop, weekend retreat, or a weekly program.



Participants have said that, "everything felt perfect," that Debra "gives so much, so beautifully," and that she "was such a wonderful presenter."
