Our Program

This program is designed for the mystic yogic goddess and is open to dedicated students wishing to inspire, challenge, and transform their personal spiritual practices while concentrating on Yogic Practices, Goddess Studies and the Divine Feminine.


Students will meet one Sunday a month for 12 months beginning in September 2019 (see dates below). We have developed a uniquely tailored program that cultivates each individual's unique gifts to be shared with group and community through the Reiki, the Holy Science of Yoga through classical and Kundalini practices, learning from nature and the September magick of working collectively. One must only have the authentic desire to dive deeply into the seat of the soul to find the source of Truth and wish to learn a divinely sacred and infinitely beautiful way to assist others to do the same.
