2017 Calender

Below is the 2017 schedule by month for upcoming groups and workshops  (last updated November 16, 2017). Events are added throughout the year. If you would like to be added to the email list for upcoming events please complete the sign up form by clicking >here< or email me.

Although the theme title of  a workshop may be the same, each workshop is unique. I spend time in personal ceremony and journey to my helping spirits prior to each event to receive guidance on the material we’ll explore in the workshop relevant to each participant’s process.

Please note deposits for classes & workshops are non-refundable. Once you request that a spot be reserved for a workshop you are responsible for paying the deposit amount in full whether or not you attend the workshop. If you decide not to participate and I am able to fill your spot, I will retain a credit in the amount of your deposit that can be applied to other workshops and/or sessions fees for up to a year, otherwise your deposit is forfeited.

*Note about “Good journeying skills required”: I can’t guarantee how effectively or smoothly we’ll journey 100% of the time (no one can). 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.
