Description: Your inner landscape is a vast world accessible through the simple act of journeying. Step through a door and onto your pathway to higher consciousness to discover your Sacred Garden - a place of personal safety, nurturing and bliss - where creativity is cultivated and vital energy is restored.

Connect with your Power Animal, a constant companion and source of strength, wisdom and protection. With the assistance of your animal, meet your compassionate and nonjudgmental Guide who will give unconditional love while assisting you in navigating the currents of your life. You are never alone, and support is just a journey away.

Upon completion of this seminar you will be able to:

  • Use guided visualization and shamanic journeywork to enter an expanded state of consciousness and experience non-ordinary reality to connect with sources of wisdom, power and healing
  • Explore the subconscious mind and ethereal realms to meet with wise beings offering guidance and gifts which will assist you in propelling towards achieving your highest expression
  • Describe the meaning and decode delivered messages as you learn the language spoken by Spirit
  • Describe how you have developed trust and confidence in yourself as you experience the physical sensation of truth in your body
  • Describe the insights you have gained on personal issues, and clarify your intentions to connect with your life purpose
  • Demonstrate breath work and a centering technique to achieve a focused mind and relaxed body
  • Use the tools and techniques learned in this seminar to integrate the body-mind-soul-spirit and achieve a greater sense of inner peace and a higher state of well-being
