A one-day Retreat for Women

Women step into new territory as the patriarchy crumbles…

Trying to find their voice

Being an advocate for themselves

Navigating a challenging path at work, home, and in society

And have to handle it all without the guidance of iconic female role models!

Join Mehrnaz, Mia and Sanaz March 5 for the Empowerment Retreat Day for Women at Burrowing Owl winery.



Come align with your essence in the vast space of emotional clarity and empower yourself to follow the guidance of your own wisdom … to reach your goals and dreams.”

Mehrnaz Massoudi, Author & Emotional Healing Coach


Through the day Mehrnaz, Mia and Sanaz will guide you to experience alignment, clarity and empowerment.


“Listening to our own voices is the doorway to Empowerment.

Empowerment comes from abundance. But women often give from an empty tank.”

Mia Harris, Transformative Voice Coach


When we start to unlock ourselves, body movement is linear. But in the process of embracing empowerment, it becomes fluid. That fluidity is powerful!

Sanaz Busink, Yoga and Meditation Teacher


For more than a decade Mehrnaz Massoudi has helped people remove emotional blocks and limiting beliefs to create the clarity to experience authenticity and empowerment.

Mehrnaz studied meditation with Deepak Chopra, Jack Kornfield, and Tara Brach.

Tap into the Vast Space of Creativity

Managing Stress with Mehrnaz gives writers tools to enhance creativity and improve productivity.

Not every author can spend a year’s sabbatical by the Mediterranean while writing their manuscript! Day-to-day stress – not to mention deadlines – can affect creative performance by triggering limiting beliefs and patterns.  But creating a space of emotional freedom can manage or mitigate those beliefs and patterns so we can tap into our creative essence.


Based on more than a decade’s research and application through one-on-one coaching with clients and in workshops, this 50-minute session will focus on stress-management techniques that include Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT – or “tapping”), breath work and visualization. By the end of the workshop participants will have learned pragmatic and effective tools to help them access creativity and improve productivity.

Date: September 24, 2022

Tickets are available at  Wine Country Writers’ Festival
