Recent Class and Retreat Offerings


CLASS:  Self Mastery – Emergence of the True Self

Our final class in the three-part series of foundational classes is Self Mastery.  In this class, we look at healing the perceived separation between personality and Spirit.  Through an active exploration of the creative nature of thoughts and feelings, beliefs and emotions, you will have an opportunity to gain mastery in the art of living as a more conscious intentional being.  Two books will be used – Living the Science of Mind and  The Four Agreements


Retreat:  Deepening with the Divine Retreat

A one-day contemplative retreat.  We will use guided imagery, readings, poetry, music and significant quiet time for you to experience Spirit within in profound ways.  Give yourself the gift of deep immersion into Spirit within during this often busy time of year.  Resonate with the season as the earth itself quiets down for winter.


Retreat:  Intentions Retreat

Release anything you want to leave behind from 2017 and step into consciously creating your 2018.  Using the provided 60-page booklet, you will engage in powerful processes and exercises to guide you into creating and manifesting the life you would love in 2018.  This is an overnight retreat.

Class:  It’s All God

How do we find the balance between living in the spiritual Absolute and the ever-changing Relative world of our physical experience? How can we accept all of who and what we are as human beings and still be Godly?

In his book, It’s All God, Walter Starcke has decoded one of metaphysics’ greatest lessons and put it into a form which is easy to grasp. This class is offered to all who seek to claim the powerful ability of embracing their humanity and divinity simultaneously. Learn practical “how to” ways to live life more fully while experiencing true inner and outer peace. Love you more. Love life more. Choose in this moment to have it all.
