WOMEN'S STORIES, LIVES CHANGED

"The medicine softened my heart, it allowed the love I am, in. A weed nurtured, a fragrant bouquet blossomed inside me. What a profound life-changing experience for me.

I was seen. I was heard. And I can't wait for the next one!"

WOMEN'S STORIES, LIVES CHANGED

The whole experience was a wonderfully held space for inner reflection and deep connection. I'm so grateful for the time to shed some of my walls and remember what it is like to feel like a kid again.

WOMEN'S STORIES, LIVES CHANGED

This experience was held with the utmost integrity. The ripples of what was uncovered in this experience I am sure will continue to reverberate for a long time. I am so grateful I said YES this ~ it was everything I didn't know I needed. I now feel more resourced and willing to sit with parts of myself that were previously hard to be with, or worse, silenced for too long. Thank you, Sand!

WOMEN'S STORIES, LIVES CHANGED

We have been together since we were teenagers. We are co-creating this life together! Words can't describe how grateful we are for our teachers Sand and Jon who have been a part of our individual and partnership transformation.

WOMEN'S STORIES, LIVES CHANGED

You have shown me so much abundant love that my heart bursts at the thoughts of how generous of spirit and heart you are. You are an angel on my shoulder!
