Hi everyone and welcome to a new week of possibilities! I’m back from my vacation and ready to tackly my very long to do list! :-)

I’m very pleased to introduce my new sponsor: Catherine Just who is a fabulous Award Winning Photographer. Take a look at her portfolio here.

Catherine is hosting an upcoming photography retreat on the beautiful Monterey Peninsula this fall from Sept. 29th- Oct. 3rd. I wish I could go myself as it looks like a wonderful place to reconnect with your creative self.

She asks, “What happens when you allow yourself the time to dive deep into your creativity? What if you mix it with a gorgeous seaside retreat center, a group of fabulous like-minded people, tea, meditation, journaling, discussion, and mindful photography? Grab your camera and let’s find out! All levels of photography are welcome.”

Catherine studied the self portrait through photography at art school.
“It felt like I was learning how to speak and photography was my voice….I also worked with Miguel Ruiz (author of the Four Agreements ) as my spiritual teacher for 5 years and helped him organize and run his power journey’s so the spiritual element is incorporated into the retreats.”

“My goal now is to provide opportunities for myself and other photographers to
come back to center and find authenticity in our creativity…by looking through
the camera and listening to our hearts.”

Some lovely photos of the last retreat can be viewed below

If this sounds like that perfect retreat to spread your creative wings, then check it out asap. Space is limited, so please visit the retreat website for more information or to sign up.

It’s a pleasure to have Catherine onboard.
Stay tuned for a more in depth interview with Catherine in a few weeks time! Check out her blog, photography portfolio and Etsy Shop too!
