This experience defies the common narratives of the last two centuries spoken about the failings of the human spirit. Why are we held to standards of perfection in an imperfect world? Stories such as the call to "be all we can be," are in direct conflict to the stories of how we are preached at as sinners. What if the narrative is different? What if we CHOOSE our own narrative of sovereignty? Or that we are actually the original blessing? We could let go of the story of being bad or good and just be genuine. And embody what it means to be human.
This experience offers the inquiry, “what else is possible?” And further more, what was never true about the constructed stories of human nature? What stories have we culturally agreed to that has elevated or denigrated us and our potential as humans?
This experience does not attempt to make sense of a world that's lost itself. This journey is an invitation to create something new for yourself individually, and then us globally. It is not a self-help program. This is a program of revolution and realignment. Re-minding. Re-membering... that we may choose to re-create a sovereign story of who we are as humans. Claiming personal agency through self-awareness.
The fallacy of our collective story is the idea that we are here to "achieve something” instead of "experience ourselves through this engaging in life.” The invitation is to discover the unencumbered self, and to learn/know/understand that our experiences are the ways in which we access that which is already inside of us.
It’s not a "filling us up with more," it’s an opening within us that which we have yet to access as a culture of people. And how could we have accessed inner sovereignty? We have not been taught the language.
The invitation of this experience is to truth. Your truth. Not mine. I continue to discover my own truth in the midst of my own self-awareness. I invite you to come discover AND create a new narrative of what it means to human well.
It means that life is messy, AND so are we. We are also glorious, golden, and noble. We are face down in the mud, shredded to the core, heart shattered open... and it’s all ok. This IS who we are. It means that we engage in ALL OF IT... in the best way we know how, at every given moment and every given day.
This journey is about progress, not perfection. It’s about knowing oneself ~ out loud. Defiantly. Rising into all of our brilliance, and through all of our struggle. It’s about doing the best we can, and knowing that “our best” lives on a spectrum between a grand slam, and complete and utter face planting.
To “human well” means to show up. To show up for ourselves and others, in a kind and receptive place. In understanding and generosity. In grace. And always in strong, consistent love. With gentleness, and a deep desire to care; to connect. To synchronize our collective well being. To remember who we are... as sacred.
Now is the time to pull away from narratives of trauma, pain and wounds. To grieve. To acknowledge our collective experience and to begin to shift the narrative back to our inherent worth and dignity as humans. To heal.

Each experience is oriented to the four seasons; Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter. We explore the invitation of the natural world, and receive the season's wisdom as we orient to our own inner and outer experiences on this journey. To know ourselves better, we look to our natural world and it's annual cycles, and our aligned presence and connection to and with it. We explore ways in which we embody and partner with nature.
What have our cells been holding that might be ready to be known? This course will include a strong focus on embodiment of the soma, the body. What is true of us lives in our cellular nature. This intelligence is accessible through purposeful exploration. This may look like embodied movement, quiet meditation, physical expressions of inner emotions, etc. This course will orient to the inner landscape of the self, and the cosmic landscape of the us.
We are whole beings and holy beings. This experience will explore the deep rooted gift of our holy and whole-y selves. A psycho-spiritual-somatic experience. We will dig into the stories of humanity as it pertains to our connection with Source and your personal connection to spirituality. This in not a religious or dogmatic discussion. It is an experience of ourselves as the spirit-ually holy beings we are. This course is about engaging the active form of mind-body-spirit. All three. Collectively.
Humans are blessed with multiple intelligences. In this co-creation we will explore the definition and understanding of each intelligence, and sink into where we might access a more balanced use of our whole selves/cellves.
Somatic Intelligence ~ Felt Sense
Intellectual Intelligence ~ Learned
Emotional Intelligence ~ Interconnectedness
Spiritual Intelligence ~ Knowing
Cultural Intelligence ~ Collective agreements
Systemic Intelligence ~ How We Human Well in systemic models
