Play with me! In person.
And sometimes online.
We have fun. So much fun. You should join us.
Events often sell out within a couple days, not everything shows up here.
Though I try to announce to the very occasional “Hey, doing a thing” list, which you can sign up for below.
Come to a Rally (Rally!)
Three and a half days of destuckifying, useful realizations, fascinating discoveries.
While getting more done on your projects than you ever imagined possible.
Even if you don’t know what your projects are yet.
And napping, playing, coloring with crayons, eating snacks and swinging in hammocks.

A special Eight Day Rally (it’s actually a bit more like my Crossing the Line retreat than a straight-up Rally) called Operation F.O.U.N.T.A.I.N. will be happening from July 29-August 5, 2014
» Yes! Details soon…
The Year of Emptying & Replenishing.

The only other thing I’m teaching in 2013. Password = compass
Come play at Stompopolis.
Stompopolis is the most magical place in the world, and also the secret playground for grown-ups that I run in Portland, Oregon.
Being at Stompopolis is basically like being on Rally all the time. DIY Rally. Self-directed, but with a decoder compass, stations to play in and all the tools you need. It’s super hush-hush and hard to get into, but if you are visiting from out of town, you can arrange a special one-week pass….
Get notified about new events!
This is not a marketing/selling/convincing list.
I won’t bombard you with stuff about why you should take my programs. This is just to announce new things. Very occasionally. Four or five updates in a year is a lot for me.
The reason to sign up: Normally what happens is I announce on the blog or at the frolicsome bar (that’s what I call facebook), it fills up in a day and people miss it. Being on the list solves that. We don’t use this list for anything else.
* Should go without saying but we will never share your information with anyone. That would be creepy.
The fields we need filled out are the ones in bold. The rest is up to you. Thanks!
Sending you love.
The meta-tour of past events…
My duck and I have been leading workshops since 2005.
Favorite locations include: Berlin, Germany. Asheville, North Carolina. Monterey, California. Boulder, Colorado. I also taught at Jen Louden’s marvelous Writer’s Retreat in Taos, New Mexico in 2009 and 2010.
In May 2010, my magical, wonder-filled Playground came into being in Portland, Oregon, and in 2012 we expanded: say hi to Stompopolis.
As of this writing (April 2013), I’ve run twenty four Rallies, four shiva nata intensives, six retreats and — good god — more one-day workshops than I can remember. But maybe a billion? It seems like a billion.
People have come from all over to play. From Australia, New Zealand, India, Niger, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, The Netherlands, France, the United Kingdom and just about everywhere in North America.
If you are far, far away and can’t make it, I absolutely understand. I’m planting seeds for someday-someday, and we’ll try to keep the shop stocked with useful things in the meantime.
I am waving affectionately at you! And trusting that one day we will get to meet in person, even if we don’t know when or how yet.
Please note that events take place in HBT (Havi Bell Time), which is like Pacific standard time but more fun.
