One Day Holotropic Breathwork
on July 29 8 am-9 pm
Information session on Neo-Shamanic Training on July 30 10 am -12 pm
NST practitioners who have completed my two year Neo-Shamanic training program.
For those of you who like the one day events do not worry as I now have five graduates of my two year training program who will be taking over this leadership. All are very experienced and well trained in breathwork. They are all extremely competent and I could not be more pleased with their commitment and hard work to become certified in my Neo-Shamanic Training program. This intensive training combines a comprehensive breathwork facilitator training with a deep engagement of both Jungian and Neo-Jungian models of the psyche as well as an understanding of Shamanism and Neo-Shamanic sensibilities.
I will be sending another email to properly introduce them but for now here is their contact information. Please contact them to get on their mail list so you can be notified of their events.

Closed Group for 4 weekends
Additionally, I will be offering a four weekend program (Saturday and Sunday) spread out about two-three months between the weekends. This group will be limited in size and is a closed group so the same people will be present at each weekend. Over the years, I have offered these groups using breath work and other modalities for personal growth work; it is my favorite way to experience this process. The closed group allows for an even deeper experience since you would not be coming into a new group with every workshop. The central theme for this group will be exploring the methods and symbolism of "The Eternal Quest: Our Search for The Soul" subtitled "Why psychological development is so important for spiritual growth". Using Breathwork, myth imagination, art, and film we will be exploring what some would say is the greatest of all developmental tasks and the one that brings the deepest meaning to our life.
Nurtured by Nature
Healing the Disenchantment of the Modern World
I want to share some new programs that I will be hosting in the Appalachian mountains of western North Carolina. As some of you know, last year I moved from Illinois to this area which is one of the most beautiful spots in the country and one of only two temperate rain forests in the U.S. I have been working and vacationing in this area since the late 1980's; my partner Jan Crawford and I made the move that we had long planned last summer.
Our intention was to live in an area that afforded greater opportunities for out door activities especially hiking and camping combined with a more tolerable climate. The area we moved to is an absolute paradise for this since we live in the middle of five national forests and an hour south of one of our nation's most popular national parks- The Great Smokey Mountain National Park. There are more waterfalls here than anywhere in the U.S. and hundreds of miles of hiking trails. Our idea was to eventually offer personal growth vacations and retreats that include a deep reconnection with the healing power of nature while also including inner work for personal and spiritual growth. We will be offering three, four and five day events beginning next May. We will have themed offerings as well as less structured programs that can be individually designed. So stay tuned for more information or contact me and I will be happy to share more details with you.

A Rare Total Eclipse visible in the U.S.
And, finally,the very special event in August 2017 which is a solar eclipse viewable in parts of the US. It so happens that the direct path (which is where you can witness the extraordinary total eclipse of the sun by the moon ( a very rare opportunity which people fly all over the world to witness) will pass within a mile of our place in North Carolina ( you must be within a 12 mile wide path directly under the sun to experience the total eclipse) so we are planning a big event to celebrate and view this extraordinary celestial show.
