Every few weeks I offer this drop-in Zoom webinar. A supportive group sprinkled from across the world, to process thoughts and feelings during these extraordinary times. We start with 10 minutes of meditation to settle our bodies and minds. Then it's spontaneous Inner Work where I match up what's arising from you with my bag of visual process tools. Different every time. Come when you can. Leave grounded and connected.

Location: Online Live Zoom Webinars, 16 sessions

My deepest container yet. Satsang is a Sanskrit word, meaning to associate with true people. We take a nondual / oneness approach. Everyone and everything is welcomed and met. We maturely use the many triggers of our intense times to do our inner work. Deep understanding and bonds form. If you are really ready to honestly use these divisionary times to grow yourself and be who YOU are meant to be, this is the group for you.

*** Good too for Certified Visual Coaches (and those working on the credential) to witness me working with the advanced maps throughout.

Prerequisite: None
