Berkeley, California

This weekend session is for anyone who wants to take a bold step in their lives. Perhaps you are at a crossroads and want to take some time for deeper self-reflection into your authentic purpose. During this weekend session we will develop a plan of action for moving your dreams into reality. We will spark your imagination for what is possible as we draw from a range of tools to heighten your self awareness. These include steps for taking on meditation, using art to set a clear vision, breaking through resistance and embodying confidence as a daily practice. You will walk away with practices for being a change agent in your own life.

Together we will:

  • Build connections
  • Quiet the mind
  • Bring your vision forward
  • Become aware of resistance
  • Illuminate a plan of action
  • Take on an act of courage
