New winter schedule and the Master Cycle, a journey through self mastery

Do you hear your soul calling you to be your best self right now? You are the master and you manifest Soul and Spirit into Matter, following the laws of Divine Creative. Attend a master class, enroll in teacher training, register for a weekly class, and our intention is to provide assistance in the mastering of your personal practice. Our winter schedule has less weekly classes and more master classes and workshops. Always check our website for updates and event announcements.
