The famous life coach and author Dr. Martha Beck says: “Perpetually doing, without ever tuning in to the center of our being, is the equivalent of fueling a mighty ship by tossing all its navigational equipment into the furnace.”

Offering practical tools for replenishing our spirit and tuning into our core being is at the heart of the groundbreaking new workshop series in Benicia called Flying in Formation Workshops to Lift Your Life

Facilitators are seasoned life coaches, writers and healers. Three are Martha Beck-trained life coaches, one is a doctor who practices integrative and holistic medicine and another is a local writer and active community volunteer.  All are what Beck calls “way finders,” dedicated to making positive change in their own lives in order to help pave the way for others.

Yes, the “Flying in Formation” moniker is in honor of geese. “Few people realize that when geese fly in formation, they fly about 70% farther together than they would alone. And, when they honk, it’s to cheer each other on,” says event organizer Adriene Rockwell. “This has been the spirit of the entire project. It started as a nickname for the team, and then became the natural title for the series.”

The five Flying in Formation Workshops to Lift your Life are held on consecutive Saturdays, September 17 though October 15, 2016, 10am-noon. All workshops are held at Carter’s Biz Cafés in the beautiful, historic Commanding Officer’s Quarters building in Benicia. Price is $27 per workshop or $105 for all five.  Brickspace, a building and learning center, is offering free drop-in play for children of registered participants (must be potty-trained).
