    Williston Chapter Meeting ~ June 1st, 2016


    Presented by: Gerette Buglion, Dream Haven of Vermont

    Topic: Reiki: The Surprising Power Within

    As women business owners, we are often confronted with confusing dreams or heart-stopping moments that ask us to pause before jumping into the next project, meeting or phone call. But since we live in a culture that encourages quick action, we just as often move on, missing an important opportunity to more fully experience - and learn from - life’s richest and most valuable moments! 

    You are invited to bring dream or experience in your life that was intense or memorable in some way. We will use this to demonstrate how to: 
    • Listen for important inner messages
    • Translate these messages into self-affirming action
    • Unleash creativity
    • Better understand and make use of your intuition and personal power to enrich your life and relationships.

    Gerette and her team of Reiki practitioners will share a few simple techniques that you can take with you to help you bridge the gap between your inner experience and your outer reality as a woman business owner. 

    Bio: Gerrette lives in Hyde Park, VT with her husband, son and daughter. Home, family and deep love for the land has been a constant in her life since childhood, leading her into a variety of jobs including many years as a hiking guide, teacher, dream mentor and eventually into entrepreneurship. After her teaching career, she owned a cleaning company for 10 years and having sold that, now runs her home based business Dream Haven of Vermont, offering personalized retreats that offer refuge for her guests. 


    Many thanks to our members and sponsors!

    Burlington Chapter Meeting ~ June 15th, 2016

    Topic: Solution Circle

    Overview: 

    Women have been coming together in circles for millennia to support each other's success and find solutions to important problems/opportunities. Being a business owner can be isolating; it really helps to be able to get others' perspectives and ideas. Sometimes people outside of a situation can see it more clearly. This peer to peer support is one of the most valuable aspects of WBON membership & participation.
