passion. purpose. peace: a retreat                                                      

May 29-30, 2015 in Davidson, NC    Spaces limited!

Are you ready to finally quiet the self-doubt that has stopped you from creating the life you want?

Do you want to reconnect- or connect for the first time- with what you find life giving so you can live with passion?

Are you eager to claim what your purpose is in life and realize how you want to live it?

Do you need time and guidance to really help you breathe, think, dream, and plan for your best life?

Are you ready to make this moment YOUR time?

Then Passion. Purpose. Peace is calling for you.

At this two day retreat, we’ll spend our time together filtering out the excess noise while identifying and embracing what is most true for you in how to live authentically and create the life you want.

We will forge a deeper self-awareness, practice greater self-acceptance, and examine your self-care in a way that empowers you to be your greatest ally.

We will discover what you want your legacy to be and how to live in a way that aligns with whom and how you most want to be in the world while allowing you to creatively express your passion and purpose in a personally crafted mission statement and manifesto.

You will be guided in creating an action plan that guides your wants and needs at a pace and in a way that is just right for your life.

Ultimately, you will leave Passion. Purpose. Peace invigorated, focused, and clear with a sense of confidence in what you uniquely offer the world and a vision for how to live on purpose in an authentic, whole-hearted way.

What do past participants have to say about their Passion. Purpose. Peace experience? 

The Passion Purpose Peace retreat was truly a transformative experience. As a young woman, it was an amazing experience to get together with women from all stages in life and talk about what it means to have purpose and to uncover it. It is a really cool thing to learn that we’re all just trying to figure it out and you can be just as unsure about what comes next at 22 as you are at 42! Rosie’s techniques and resources allowed us as a group and individuals to move beyond fear and uncertainty and to focus in on what matters to us and why. Once I understood what I actually want out of my life, and not what convention, or magazines, or fear want my life to look like, the retreat propelled me into a space where I could grasp those newfound realities and turn them into meaningful and manageable action steps. What I really liked though is that the learning experience was balanced. We all had a ton of energy as we were revisiting the passions of our youth or early life or discovering emerging passions and patterns, but a large chunk of the day was focused on self-care. It is easy to go headlong into a dream or goal and then to get burnt out, but we learned in the retreat to stay grounded in wellness and self-awareness in order to make our changes sustainable.  This retreat was one of my favorites that I have attended and I don’t think it will be topped soon.   Jaime Zito

I am so grateful for the retreat and all that it offered. Rosie’s message is exactly what I needed.  Rosie’s story is inspirational and through that I was able to find my own story. The real story, not the one I have imagined through others’ eyes. Mine. I have new tools to continue the search growing ever closer to my truth. I am excited about the possibilities and I look forward to the next retreat.  Tonya Rush

10 Truths for Your Self-Acceptance Journey

Everyday, we perpetuate non-inclusive body and beauty ideals that limit our possibilities. It is time for women of all colors, sizes, and ethnicities to confront the boxes they are placed in by themselves and others and create worldviews that are expansive and empowering. This powerful, interactive workshop reveals ten powerful lessons about journeying to self-acceptance and the tools that can help make anyone more self-accepting. Participants will be inspired to live with purpose, challenged to forego self-defeating tendencies, and encouraged to champion all women.  Frank discussion about idealized beauty standards and our buy-in will help women build their media literacy and escape the stranglehold of idealized beauty so that we can concentrate our energies on using our skills and experiences to improve our world.

Audience: High School, college, and adult populations

Bodies and Besties

This interactive workshop guides participants in exploring how they can treat themselves, their bodies, and their friends well.  The workshop ends with the participants creating a powerful pledge to how they will be their own best friend and a good friend to others.

Audience: 4th through 9th graders

Media Matters

This interactive workshop reveals the extent of our use of media and its impact, exposes the amount of image alteration that occurs in the media, and challenges participants to be wiser consumers of media.  Participants will leave with a powerful new understanding of how the media works, the way market forces motivate what we are shown, and what they can do about it.

Audience: Adaptable for middle school through adult populations

Growing Up Latina

Rooted in the work and lessons from Hijas Americanas, this presentation reveals how Latinas coming of age in America reconcile the messages they receive in their homes with the messages they receive outside their homes in order to find themselves.  Includes a reading, an explanation of the motivation for this book and the research process, and allows time for questions.

Audience: High School, college, and adult populations

Beautiful You(th)

Parents often feel as if their role in championing their children’ self-confidence is negated by the rush of images presented to them on television, in the movies, and in magazines. The truth is that parents are a child’s frontline of defense in the body image wars, and it’s never too late to champion your child. Parents will share their concerns and hear best practices for empowering rather than enabling their children while instilling confidence.

Audience: Parents

The Hopeful Year Toolkit

Popular for professional women’s groups, businesses, and civic groups, this workshop guides participants in using four powerful tools to create an intentional, authentic, self-directed life and is useful, life-chaning and life affirming at any time during the year.

Audience: Adult women

Writing Your Life

Self-reflection allows us a moment of inquiry, a moment to identify desire and potential. Generating awareness, and then moving to personal solutions, takes time and thought, brainstorming and checking in, enough repetition to want to change our choices and build a new habit, and the knowledge of why this habit will be good for us when we want to revert. Journaling predisposes us to a more successful embrace of our self and our choices, insulating and boosting our self-awareness which raises our self-esteem. Participants will engage in a range of journaling tools and practices.

Audience: High school, college and adult populations

Story Matters 

This workshop/keynote looks at the importance of our individual stories in what we bring to the table, especially in professional or school settings.  Rather than focusing diversity on simply one’s race, we look at diversity through the unique lens of what we each have to offer and work intentionally to heighten everyone’s awareness of the depth that each unique individual brings to a community while building respect and cohesion among the group.

Audience: High School, college, and adult populations

  1. Maria Gorham

    I would like to know more about thisworkshop. We have a large group here in Austin and believe it’s an international group, Las Comadres. We could probably get a good number of women to attend a workshop like this. Is there a website?

  2. rosiemolinary

    Hi Maria! I am a member of Las Comadres, too! These workshops are courses that I can give around the country. For example, I am traveling to Nashville, College Park, Maryland, Warren, New Jersey, Fredonia, New York among other places this fall to give workshops. I am actually going to be a part of the Latino Book and Family Festival in Houston on September 30th. There, I will be giving a reading at 4 pm in Suite E of the Convention Center. I know it’s a bit of a drive from Austin but maybe you can make it. Otherwise, feel free to e-mail me at latinabookproject@adelphia.net and we can talk more about these workshops!

    All the best, Rosie

    Hello, I heard that you were in Atlanta in early August, but I missed you. I’m currently a student at GA Tech and my sorority along with the women’s resource center at our university are planning a Body Image Celebration month in February. We are really interested in having you come and do a workshop, book reading and signing, etc. Please contact me and let me know if this is something that interests you.

    Thank you

  4. AnaLiz Servin

    I am almost done reading your book “Hijas Americanas” and
    I must say, wow I finally feel like I am not alone. Your book has touched me in so many ways, and I wish that the affect it had on me could be shared with the rest of the girls here in my community. Is there anyway, that you can come to Lake Tahoe California for a workshop or perhaps a nearby city such as Reno Nevada or Sacramento California. I believe that the girls (and women) of our community would really benefit from the workshop. Please let me know if there is a chance and if there is anything that I can do to make it happen.

    Gracias

    1. rosiemolinary

      AnaLiz, Thanks so much for stopping in and letting me know what the book has meant to you. I will send you an email to talk about the possiblity of going out to Tahoe. Abrazos, Rosie
