Although it is powerful to work through trauma in weekly or bi-weekly sessions, planning an intensive can be a profound way to get to the crux of anguish and pain, uproot it, and transform your life.

An intensive is a two or three day period. The program is always personalized and spontaneous given the person’s unique needs, depth and intentions.

For those who are looking for a more immediate and profound transformation, to unleash and engage in their full creative potential, the intensive maybe the growth platform to take you into a deeper region of consciousness, allowing a greater wisdom to emerge.
