IMG_0168Introduction to Healing Arts & Sciences

Are you aching to know more about yourself? To heal? To explore the wisdom and creativity within? I’d be honoured if you came to learn, share, and explore with me in this 4-module Introduction to Healing Arts & Sciences.

We’ll meet once a month (with “homework” in between each session) in order to aid you in your discovery and self-exploration. Through experiential learning and sharing, we’ll draw upon several different healing systems and techniques, offering you many different tools to add to your toolkit. This is a safe space where all experiences are welcome.

Can’t meet once a month? Select the module(s) that work for you and join us for those!

What clues are waiting for you to uncover? What threads to healing are there for you to follow? So much information within you awaits to be discovered!
