The balance of your tuition is due when we gather for class by cash or check. If you want to pay your tuition/contribution with a credit card please submit your balance via Paypal (www.paypal.me/theyewtree) before class begins and be sure to note the date and title of the class with your payment.

If finances are a consideration and you feel deeply called to participate in an event please do reach out to me directly as every workshop has at least one partial and/or full work trade opportunity and for some workshops I’m also able to offer partial scholarships and discounts. These opportunities are on a first come first serve basis, contact me directly for availability.

I reserve the right to cancel any event and/or the participation of any participant, at any time for any reason. In such a case, fees paid in advance will be refunded.

*Note about “Good journeying skills required”: Before registering for workshops where “good journeying skills are required” please be comfortable enough with the  process to confirm that you’re having reasonably consistent success with getting into your journeys, meeting your Guides, receiving useful information from them, and then clearly returning from the journey and putting the information to use.

chamber of light

“Community Transfiguration Ceremony”

Friday, September 6th 6:30pm-8:30pm

Eel River Holistics – Redway, CA

Embody and embrace the light within you and all of creation…

Transfiguration literally means shapeshifting. In this ceremony, we work with the power of presence and focus to shapeshift into our divinity and become pure light. When we shine our light into the world this energy creates transformation. The practice of transfiguration moves our awareness from the ego and perceived separateness into the truth of our unity with all of creation and attunes us to healing energies. When we see ourselves, each other and all that is around us in divine perfection we’re able to heal toxic energies and trauma by transfiguring them into pure light and love.

We’ll begin by embarking on a drum journey to prepare and then we’ll move into the ceremony itself.

Suggested Donation $15. RSVP Required contact  (707) 397-0018 theyewtree@gmail.com to reserve your spot.

“Grow Your Inner Mother: Tending the Internal Flame”

Saturday, September 21st

10:30am – 6:30pm

Eel River Holistics – Redway, CA

Pre-Registration Required (see below)

Each of us is born with an internal flame that directly connects us to our authenticity and purpose. When raised in a healthy environment we naturally grow our Inner Mother and learn how to tend and nurture our internal fire, meet ourselves with love and compassion, live a full and meaningful life and are able to maintain healthy relationships with Self and others. However, there are many of us who look within to find an unmothered child. The child who experiences the pain and suffering of not being seen heard and/or cared for with a loving hand and who reacts to the world around them from a place of pain and suffering. Healing the unmothered child and growing your inner mother means understanding that surviving is not enough, we must learn to thrive. We must learn how to fan our internal flame into something that is strong and doesn’t waver. As an adult, we are the only one who can nourish, love and grow ourselves and in this workshop, we’ll explore and experience how to do exactly that!

In this 1 day workshop we’ll explore:

  • How your childhood trauma and the unmothered child is impacting your overall health and well-being, as well as the health of your relationships with Self and others.
  • Myths and stories to connect you to the strength and wisdom of your Inner Mother.
  • Embark on a series of drum meditations to grow your inner mother and heal your unmothered child.

Recommended Reading (Audio Book): “Warming the Stone Child”, by Clarissa Pinkola Estes, PhD

Cost $85-$125 self-determined sliding scale, $50 non-refundable deposit. Our gathering space accommodates up to 8 participants  – Registration required. “Click Here to Register for Grow Your Inner Mother”
