Full Voice: A Day with Barbara McAfee

Leave a comment

How can you speak so people will listen?

Are you using the full capacity of your voice in service to your intentions, visions, and purpose?

What gifts reside deep inside you that are yearning for expression?

These complex, challenging, and exciting times are calling you to “show up” with authenticity, integrity, and courage.  As important as our voices are, few of us know how to use them to their full potential. Working with your own full voice makes you a more skillful listener as well.

We’re thrilled to welcome Barbara McAfee back to Prairie Oaks Institute. Please join us for this extraordinary day, Saturday, July 30, 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.   Then stay (and invite your friends and family to come too!) for a fantastic, free potluck meal and community sing with Barbara at the Granary, on the edge of the prairie overlooking Robert Creek.

For more information and to register (on a “sliding scale suggested donation” basis), please visit  www.fullvoicepoi.eventbrite.com today!  Optional overnight lodging is also available Friday and Saturday in either the Farmhouse or Harvest House, with a light breakfast the following morning. Come early, stay late, or make it a full weekend!
