No movement is required of you. Most people will be set up on the floor on yoga mats, but we will also have chairs provided for part or all of the event. It is helpful to access the wisdom of your body and heart through moving into the body, but there are other ways as well such as mindfulness and meditation. We will of course welcome and accommodate anyone with special physical need. So, if you are in crutches, boot, or wheelchair, you will be able to participate in the experience.

This is geared towards women 18-88, but if you are 99 and want to come, you are welcome!
Will I be photographed or recorded on video?
Angie will be filmed and photographed for the event so that we can bring this out into the world. We will not use any of your personal stories or sharing without your permission.
Will there be group work?
Yes, there will be some partner and group work. This will be an opportunity to connect, share, and receive support. Angie is gifted with creating a safe atmosphere for all, and has led group retreats for 10 years so she knows how to make it fun and safe. You always have the option to opt out of any portion if you choose. There is plenty of space outside the event room if you want to take some time for yourself.
How much do I need to share about myself during the event?
You don’t have to share anything, we just ask that you respect the women who are sharing. You might feel the desire or call to share once you are there, and if so, we welcome it. There will be opportunities to process in front of the others which can be highly beneficial for yourself and the group! But you can honor your individual wants and needs if that means abstaining from sharing.

Are kids allowed?
We love kids! However, there is no childcare at the event. This opportunity for intense transformation and expansion is designed for adults so children would be a distraction both for your own inner work and the group at large. If you have an older teenage daughter that would benefit and wants to come, then please email Time to Fly staff at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss.
I have questions that aren’t addressed on the FAQs.
Email email@example.com to talk with Time to Fly event staff about any additional questions you may have.
