“I heard about the Oasis at a time of major life change. I had recently retired and felt adrift. There was a desire to connect, to feel more alive and to explore my creative longings. The idea of checking in with myself weekly and doing some self-reflective journaling appealed to me, but was not something I wanted to do on my own. I felt the need for guidance and inspiration.
The Oasis experience was more than I had imagined and I found myself looking forward to our weekly check-ins. The power and support of the group, the depth of experience, inspiration, enthusiasm and permission that Jen brought was impressive and life-changing for me.
After experiencing the Oasis over a period of about a year, I feel stronger, more self-aware, more at peace; I notice that I am kinder to myself and others, and I feel hopeful about being able to create and feel more confident that I can contribute something authentic and meaningful to life, to my community. I am interested in so many things now, and I’m putting myself out there more often.
It really is hard to put into words, but my life feels deeper and richer. Before the Oasis, I felt like I had put myself into a small, restrictive box, and after the Oasis, I feel a sense of blossoming freedom and an openness to possibility. I feel more engaged with life and I’m learning to honor my desires and yearnings and allow them to guide me toward deeper fulfillment. What an adventure this has been, and more to come!”
