Explore Discover Transform
With Spiritual Awakening Guide
Some of the most transformational work I love to do with clients and students happens during private retreats spread over a period of consecutive days.
These private retreats are ideal for individuals or a small group of friends.
While staying at my Thunder House Sanctuary on the edge of Sedona’s sublime wilderness, we customize the sessions and timing of how we’ll work together.
Through direct and intimate dialogue, focused spiritual explorations, sacred time out on the land, privately guided meditations and powerful life re-scripting processes, you will…
- Awaken your most powerful presence that you can bring into every area of your daily life.
- Develop critical skills for staying present, centered, strong and clear when life is most challenging and overwhelming.
- Discover the Art & Power of Stillness.
- Incorporate daily empowerment & meditation practices for vibrant living.
- Establish and deepen a core foundation of trust.
- Expand your capacity to connect more genuinely and gracefully in all your significant relationships.
Together we customize your experience to create the perfect retreat that matches your desires, needs and budget. This life-transforming experience is available for singles, couples or small groups of friends.
