The Seven Fold Path ~ Week One

Karma and Destiny ~ Week Two

Step into the heart of transformational learning and discover that each human encounter holds the potential for revealing past karma and future capacities.  Develop the heart as the central spiritual organ for your destiny.  Facilitate the path of the middle between the self and the other.   Movement, nature study, pastel exercises.

Creative Spiritual Research ~ Week Three

If karma and destiny is the heart of transformational learning, then Creative Spiritual Research is the crown.  Support individuals as they re-create themselves.  Ignite a conscious relationship to their life intentions and individualizing human spirit.  Accompany them as they become co-creators of the new spirit-inspired culture.  Speech, nature study, veil painting.
