My Goddess Retreat
The Art of Seduction: Try to Win My Power!
This is a workshop designed for women who want to find their inner "Diva" There is no such thing as "no "just a "yes" waiting to happen. The more confident you are about yourself the more likely you are move to the next level. The workshop will give participants avenues to engage their senses, scribe affirmations, and go-go get sexy on em'! Seduce yourself first and the rest will follow.
Sight: Colors can evoke emotions just as much as what we hear and feel. Colors are powerful indicators of who we are. Perhaps, you may be a beige, black, and white sort of gal and for a change brown or gray. However, you can be a little bold by adding color in places that only you see until you feel more comfortable such as red or hot pink panties, vixen noir toe nail polish! Add a spike to your pumps or dare to wear red shoes
Taste: Food is a source of energy and rejuvenation but some foods for example, berries, grapes and apples are food for enticement.
Touch: fabric has away of make us feeling good. Materials such as silk, satin, cotton, cashmere, hot bubble bath or shower.
Sound: Music is a natural healer and the confidence we need can be found in the rhythm of our personal sound tracks. Music can set the mood so in the morning get in a mode of worship as you get ready for the day. Hit the car and get in a grove with a song with the vibe you want to create.
Smell: Your lotion, oil, bath spray or perfume make a statement to others but can also be a ritual for you. Oils such as grapefruit, orange, lotus, sandalwood and or vanilla for example can take you a million miles away without leaving where ever you are.
I hope you can join for a morning of inward reconciliation and forward mobility!

Where the Poem Takes You or Where You Take the Poem?
Frequently I am asked where I get my inspiration from and I would have to say there is no one place; there is something deep within that is touched and words flow on their own. The ancient Greeks believed muses were conduits for which one derived inspiration and there are countless biblical accounts of how God spoke through his profits and poets are prophets. The commandment of poet is to tell the story or give account of the human experience. Poetry causes the reader or audience to reflect and react. It is from this ebb and flow that poetry has changed lives and has given a voice to those who would ordinarily be unheard. HBO's Brave New Voices is great demonstration of how creativity can save a life. Poetry for youth is one of the best antidotes for aggression and risky behavior.
Some common themes for me are my children (students) and love (not marriedyet) but the when and where one can find a poem, you may find interesting, so here are my top 10 places to find inspiration:
10. In the lady's room in the morning is where I get a lot of my best literature
9. My girlfriends¦sistah talk is full of color and humor
8. After a long talk with Jesus
7. Before walking right into what I will later pray that God will forgive me for¦temptation is a mother!
6. Hope for a particular out come or prayer manifestation
5. A quote or message
4. Love in all its carnations
3. Music¦Nina Simone, Sade, Bob Marley, Santana, Coltrane, Monk, John Lennon and the list goes on.
2. Silence¦sometimes the stillness can bring out the best work
1. My heart¦I have learned to always be true to it and it has guided my pen every time
