  • Gain a deeper understanding of what drains your energy and preoccupies your mind, learning how to liberate these patterns.
  • Learn how to work with personal and family demons.

  • Integrate the practice by working with clay and art, to more fully express and feel the process of transformation.
  • Acquire powerful and uniquely flexible tools to help relieve the suffering of others as a therapist, coach, or facilitator.
  • Establish a regular, transformational meditation practice that integrates seamlessly with your established life and work.
