I opened The Nest as a space of sanctity:
a place of unconditional acceptance, a sanctuary in which you may hear the deep love in your heart, and to connect with your creative, expansive, infinite nature.

at The Nest, your heart leads the way

Monthly gathering for women

Women in Spiritual Evolution (WISE)*
4-part series:

The Four Agreements

Beginning August 24, 2019

Join us to experience the power of women supporting women! 

This 4-part series will focus on four powerful self-agreements, as described by Toltec wisdom teacher Don Miguel Ruiz, in his book, The Four Agreements:

  1. Be impeccable with your word
  2. Don't take things personally
  3. Don't make assumptions
  4. Always do your best

We will take a deep dive into one agreement during each of our sessions. 

Between meetings, we will experiment with incorporating these four principles into our everyday lives. What could happen?!

This group will meet on a monthly basis from August through November and is intended for women who

✓ love self-development

✓ accept (or are willing to consider) that we are more than our physical bodies, that we have access to a broader self

are open to meditation, sharing from the heart, and experimenting with new ways of being.

Co-facilitated by Tracy and fellow woman in spiritual evolution, Rachael Peizer.

*The purpose of WISE gatherings is to facilitate insight and transformation in our inner and outer lives while enjoying one another's divine essence in a group setting.

Limited to 12 participants
➛ CLASS IS FULL - We look forward to seeing you next time!

Registration fee: $90


"Spending an afternoon retreat at the beautiful Nest was a real treat. Between Tracy's vibrant light and joy, and the simple beauty of the room, I felt right away at peace and ready to connect with my soul. It was a treat to be there and reconnect with our natural gift for awareness."


"The afternoon workshop at The Nest was delightful — a spa for the soul! The space is beautiful, filled with serene energy. Tracy skillfully led the group on a joyful and enlightening journey towards self-discovery and a peaceful mind. I'm looking forward to the next one!"

Meditative Writing:

The power of writing to find your own answers

Thursday, October 3, 2019
7 - 9 pm
Writing — yay!
I am excited to offer this small-group, meditative writing workshop for women, with writer extraordinaire Elizabeth Perlman, Founder and Executive Director of the Intuitive Writing Project.

Elizabeth has led more than a thousand writing workshops for both teenage girls and women, supporting each writer in finding her voice, telling her story and reconnecting to her intuitive wisdom. Now Elizabeth is bringing her special brand of writing magic to The Nest!
Together we will enjoy two hours exploring the combined power of
⦿ guided meditation,
⦿ self-reflective writing, and
⦿ positive feedback
to connect to and receive guidance from our own wise Self.
Through this transformative process, we hope you will discover meaningful insights about your life, and emerge refreshed, renewed, and inspired!
