Cultivating an Intuitive Life - A yearlong course
This course is about knowing oneself from a compassionate and truthful place within and reflecting it outward. The title of the course comes from the deeper meaning of intuition- to look inward.
What is offered in this course is the opportunity for an engaged real-time relationship with your soulful self. The part of you that is light in nature and has access to the expression of soul's purpose in this life. We are led to think that our spirit is somehow separate from us. This limiting story can keep you from seeing your true nature and its presence within.
The access point of intuitive knowledge for all humans comes through soul and soul's universal mission to heal and grow. To heal and grow within the soul is a journey inward to the still-point of the self. This journey is expressed through the one-year course, Cultivating of an Intuitive Life.

Chakras in the Tree
To be offered again in Fall 2019
Come experience through a series of guided meditations, journalling/drawing practices and shared conversation an embodied experience of the energetic system of the chakras. The class/retreat, held at the Simplicity Farm Treehouse, creates an interconnection between ourselves within the chakras and the natural world. Experience the chakras in a deep and grounded way, allowing your experience within the forest and the treehouse to provide growth and insight in your life.
Learning opportunities with the Chakras in the retreat: -Learn to embody the distinction between the developmental flow and transformative flow within the chakras. -Learn how to access the energies of the chakras as a doorway to your unique wisdom. -Connect to the meeting point within the breath, between yin and yang, light and dark, an access point to the soul, as expressed through the chakras.
Some thoughts on the retreat: The nature of working with the chakras in the trees opens a doorway or portal. The roots and branches of the tree becomes an enhanced pathway that supports the student in the practice. This enhanced pathway from the roots of the tree through the trunk and up through the branches, extending energetically in ways that only the natural world can offer us.
Central to the practice in this class is experiencing the healing and growth intention shared with this tree, a wondrous Red Oak, cultivated over the last 8 years in the creation of the treehouse.
Receiving nature as a healing relationship in one’s life radically expands our support system and interconnectivity to life.
An expression of a balance within both the divine feminine and divine masculine.
Coming august 3rd 2019
The Root Chakra: A Creative One Day Retreat
The root chakra is about a dynamic connection with the moment. Being here, being grounded, reveals an important part of what the root chakra offers us as human beings. Being present, yes, and also being in a creative relationship with the moment. In many ways expressed in the affirmation I AM. The willingness to allow our infinite and intuitive nature expand into the moment until its full expression is seen multi-dimensionally.
Using turtle shells as a framework for creativity along with meditations with the chakras, we will explore the root chakra with each student creating her own painted/mosaic turtle shell.
Class limited to 8 students
To be held at the Simplicity Farm Treehouse (weather permitting)

Integral Kundalini Awakening
Integral-essential, intrinsic, fundamental
Kundalini- an energy at rest sitting at the base of the spine that through conscious practice is brought into movement or flow. A flow that arises within the energy body of the chakras, bringing within its rising a union of yin and yang. A consciousness shift occurs with a profound sense of deepened connection with the soul. A sensation of deep quiet unfolds with the sense that one has fallen into a deep ocean or desert of still consciousness.
Awakening-an act or moment of becoming suddenly aware
The Integral Kundalini Awakening intensive serves as a catalyst in personal growth by giving focused intention into the kundalini as a point of healing & growth. Refinements are taught within the Microcosmic Orbit and the Chakra Energy Meditation to support and awaken the kundalini. Attention and discernment is brought to the energy meditation and its elements of practice. Individual attention is brought to each students needs.
Prerequisite: completion of 6 months of Cultivating an Intuitive Life along with an embodied daily practice with the Chakra Energetic Meditation.
