Our Recipe for Success

The Teachings • The Container • The Path

Every part of this program has been carefully prepared,
using time tested principles of human development.

The Teachings

Our Four Pillars work is rooted in universal principles found within indigenous wisdom traditions such as as the “Four Fold Way” and the “Four Agreements”.


We’ll also explore these practices through their expressions in the disciplines of Energy Medicine, Sound Healing, Feng Shui, Astrology, History and Tarot.


The intention of the work is to help you connect more fully with your own inner knowing, through your Spirit and the wisdom your body. When you understand these core principles and learn how to apply them in your life, you hold the keys to creation and new levels of mastery in the world.

The Container

One of the most important reasons for the success of this program is the central role of the intentional small group.


New science is bearing out what spiritual teachings have always known: Life is based on collaboration and cooperation. Through the power of relationship we become much more than we ever could alone.


Through our intentional group work you’ll build new momentum, access new visions of possibility, and strengthen your connections to ALL of the relationships in your life, including your circumstances.

The Path

All true and lasting change comes from within. You have direct access to the Source energy that builds worlds, and the Universe holds big dreams for you.


You are absolutely unique. Your path is unique because your expression of Spirit is unique. What you are here to create has never been before. 


All of the elements of this program are designed to support your unique unfolding. Inspired creation happens when you explore these new tools and understandings within the circumstances of daily life.

In our time together we will witness amazing growth, hold space for challenges, appreciate beauty, honor vulnerability, take risks, speak the truth of our dreams, and celebrate together the spectacular new creations that appear.
