What My Clients Are Saying …

Nancy! I love the work that you do. You bring joy and energy and LOVE to everything you touch!
~Katie Adler

2016 The Transformative Gift of Silence, Listening Beneath the Noise Retreat

“I had such an enriching day at your retreat, Finding Your Voice in the Silence. You have a gift for doing what you do, and it’s so wonderful to see you in a place that suits your talents so perfectly.  I loved the peace and clarity I took away from the day and most of all, the time I spent with “just me” was more rewarding than I ever could have imagined. Looking so forward to my next Nancy retreat – hopefully in November!” ~Susie D. 


2015 The Masks We Wear, the Journey to Our Authentic Self Retreat

“I really enjoyed every aspect of the retreat experience. I would not change a thing! Thank you so much for an enlightening and relaxing 3 days.  I so enjoyed meeting you and appreciate your talents in facilitating such an enriching retreat.” ~C.F.

 “I thoroughly enjoyed my second retreat with Nancy at the ARC this Spring. Nancy did a great job of incorporating a variety of activities into the retreat. We experienced dance, mask making, yoga and plenty of time to just enjoy the beauty of the ARC. The subject materials that Nancy provided and her facilitation of the retreat allowed for open, honest conversations that led me to discover new things about myself and gave me new tools to utilize in my everyday life. Thank you Nancy, for another amazing experience! I am so lucky to call you a friend!” ~Monica Katzenberger, Principal of Katzenjammer Designs

“I feel truly blessed to have been part of this and, as you know, we at ARC are well aware that we receive from you all as much, and often more, than we give.  It’s truly a pleasure holding the sacred space for you and your guests and seeing the delight on your face as you enjoy the decadence of double chocolate brownies, the wholesome comfort of ARC rice & beans, and  the pride and beauty of sharing the masks you each made with such intention and attention.  THANK YOU!” ~Roxanne 

 2014 Artist’s Way Women’s Retreat
 “There were a variety of activities focusing on different aspects of creativity.  These activities included discussions about the Artist’s Way tools, treasure mapping, a guided visualization, Angel Cards and for fun a campfire with s’mores.  After each completed activity, the six women in attendance generously shared what they had learned, their thoughts and feelings. Held on the beautiful grounds of the ARC Retreat Center near Cambridge, Minnesota, I found the accommodations inviting and the food exceptionally delicious and nutritious.  Walking through the festive fall woods with abundant wildlife was a relaxing treat. Overall, I gained valuable insights into the creative process while at the same time thoroughly enjoying the groups camaraderie.  I recommend The Artist’s Way retreat for any woman wishing to explore and expand her personal and professional boundaries.” ~Jan                                                                                                                        

“Are we going back next weekend ? It was MAGICAL. Thank you for the gift you are.” ~Kathleen

“Thank you Nancy, for welcoming me so warmly and for providing gentle ways to stretch ourselves. I thoroughly enjoyed everything about the retreat and look forward to going on more retreats with you in the future. You’ve given me so many new tools and I’m so excited to use them! I am grateful for you.” ~Monica Katzenberger, Principal of Katzenjammer Designs

“One of the things I appreciate about Nancy as a facilitator is her ability to meet people where they are. She is very respectful of each person’s journey and where they are at in their lives. Thank you Nancy,  for making this retreat happen. It was Fabulous!” ~Janet 

The Artist’s Way Class

“I truly enjoyed Nancy’s Artist’s Way class! It was refreshing to attend a class with like-minded people where we felt open to share how the exercises in the book can make a positive impact to our daily life. Besides the many excellent exercises given in the book, Nancy also implemented some of her own fun activities. The very best part of the class was how Nancy made sure we all felt so comfortable with each other. It felt like our own little ‘Artist’s Way’ family!” ~E.D. Fridley, MN
