Balance * Wellness
Passion & Purpose

Want to meet friendly women and stay on task  with life goals, balance, even explore your dreams and have some fun? Then join one of several “bloom” groups facilitated by Barb, forming now.

What is a bloom group, you ask?
Goal oriented small groups of wonderful women like you (6 to 8 in each group)  have fun and fuller lives living with more purpose & passion, balance and wellness.  Based on the premise that connection and a community of women is healthy to body, mind and soul, you work on individual life goals and dreams while forming friendships and support in a group setting. Instead of a networking group or a book group, this is a connecting group for you to grow, blossom, bloom!

  • Inspiration & support
  • Work on individual goals, big or small
  • Community, connection & friendship
  • Group format helps you stay on task
  • Meets twice a month (total of 6 gatherings)
  • Always fun & insightful!

If you’ve been trying to move forward, get out of overwhelm with your “to do” list, or simply want to connect with like-minded women and build new friendships, a bloom group is for you!! I’m so confident these groups make a difference in our overall happiness and well-being that I’m happy to offer a free initial consultation over the phone.

“I guarantee you’ll get something out of attending just once!!”

Where? Westbrook CT OR Contact Barb for information on joining a Bloom Tele-Group.

Cost $150 for six gatherings

Groups meet twice a month in Westbrook, other Shoreline CT locations TBD or over the phone (tele-groups).

Email or call 203-521-1129 for an initial phone consultation and to answer your questions.

Join us for our Spring retreat in breathtaking Tuscany!


April 10 -17th, 2010
Tuscany at Ebbio

Imagine an 800 year old picturesque farmhouse ( “Ebbio” ) in a magical place surrounded by an evergreen forest that’s inviting, rustic and beautiful. (Think Under The Tuscan Sun!).  Now imagine time to savor a stroll through the woods,  the smell of fragrant air, the delightful company of wonderful women and all the other magnificent sites and flavors of Tuscany.

With an emphasis on living a balanced, happy, and fulfilled lifestyle (sounds ideal!), we’ll start each day with yoga and a breakfast chat about the “seeds” you can plant to sprout your dreams and grow your life.

Then its time to relax or join many excursions and venture through rolling Tuscan hills, vineyards and ancient country villages.  Enjoy a gelato or sip cappuccino along the way as you have fun and form friendships.

Each day ends with a wonderful evening stretch. Read more
