Bend of Ivy's April 2022 Newsletter

Dear all, With Spring comes new, birth and beautiful awakenings. A beautiful season, time and experience. And so it is for us now, with a delightful family birth, and joy. Last Thursday our family experienced joy, with the welcomed birth of granddaughter Madison Rae. Her beloved parents Kaitlin (my daughter) and Spencer Taylor, and big sister Grace, are thrilled and grateful. Alan and I are over the moon in love with Madie, and Grace. Spring in these North Carolina mountains started early this year with delightful warm days in the 70s. Then a white out snowy day a couple weeks ago. This last weekend had gorgeous weather in the 70s again. Mother nature in spring is unpredictable, loves to bring change. Happy Spring!

Well-Being Resets & The Enneagram Wayfinder Alchemy Magic of Whole Being Resets

Retreating & Learning Immersion For leaders, coaches, change makers and entrepreneurs. What do you want now and next for you, and your relationships, work, coaching and creating? Do you want to be better ~ more awake, aware, resilient, creative and present? The Magic happens through your inner work. Find out what you want, and don't want. Find out what gets you stuck, and unstuck. Find your deeper purpose. What's your legacy desire? The Enneagram is a growth catalyzer, when mixed with the alchemy of whole body waking up ~ body, heart, head and spirit. The deeper you go, the deeper and wiser you grow. And, there's some potent keys to really deepen into the powerful wisdom magic of a Conscious Living and Leading Enneagram journey. We'll explore them. Retreat & learn: 3 In-person Monthly Workshops & 2 virtual Integration/ Q&A sessions and coaching support. BOI workshop retreat afternoons will stir openings, nurturing and discovery. You'll experience, learn and reset with programs, spaciousness, movement, breath work, Enneagram map walking, and more. Comments from recent participants in some of Susan's Enneagram Wayfinder programs: “Susan's enneagram retreat helped me deep-dive into knowing so much more about myself. Her depth of knowledge helped her answer my questions and prompt me to ask myself the right questions as I continued to understand my numbers better. This retreat dove deeper into areas of the enneagram that I wasn't even aware of and really brought it all together for me in such a beautiful way. Highly recommend Susan's enneagram courses and retreats.” Noelle Rollins, Artist and Business Owner "Susan is a warm, welcoming and skilled facilitator. Bend of Ivy is a mystical, magical setting for inner work and learning" RH, Leadership Coach
