What Is ReMe?

"Understand that the right to choose
 your own path is a sacred privilege.
Use it. Dwell in possibility."
-Oprah Winfrey
ReMe is the dream of  Jean Skipper and Jodi Ohl.  The world of art brought us together; we became fast friends; and since meeting we’ve shared our individual journeys as women, mothers, daughters, professionals, artists, and teachers.  Each of us will confirm that our friendships have made both the good and the bad times much sweeter, and it’s our deepest desire to share a bit of the magic that we’ve found with you during your ReMe Experience. 

In our early stages of discussing this project, many possible names for it were bandied about.  Each of them was good in its own way; but none were good enough to fully encompass all that we were trying to say.  When the word “ReMe” was spoken, bells sounded, fireworks filled the sky, and sweet little forest creatures danced amongst us.  (Alright.  Maybe it wasn’t quite that theatrical; but it was exactly the name we were seeking.)

“Re”?  Re provides for a do-over.  It allows us to revisit those activities that hold meaning for us as we work toward incorporating more of them into our daily lives.
“Me”?   Me represents this time in our lives… after caring for the needs of our spouses, children, parents, home, work, and community… when we unequivocally declare for all  who are listening that “It’s all about Me!”  

For some ReMe will mean Re-Discovering-Me.  For others it may mean Re-Inventing-Me.  Or perhaps it's finally time to Re-Lax-Me.  With more than 5,000 words in the English Language that begin with the prefix Re-, the possibilities of  ReMe are limitless. 
We promise that we’ll do everything in our power to ensure that your ReMe Experience is all about you.  We're working hard to include absolutely everything that we envision in our own dream events, and you can learn all of the juicy details about each ReMe Experience by clicking the links above. 

ReMe represents a world of possibilities to us, and we're waiting with eager anticipation to hear about the special meaning that ReMe will find in your life and your heart too.  

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than
by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
– Mark Twain
