Everybody loves to learn more, develop new abilities, fulfil his or her
potential, and succeed and grow as a person.
Unfortunately, we often feel that what we are doing is less than what
we know to be possible. We may be unsure of the right path for us. Or
we know the path but cannot take it or give it our all.
Through simple exercises and careful focus, participants will connect
with their deepest values and touch a sense of the deep purpose guiding
They will become aware of the strange mix of possibilities and restraints
calling for their attention in their context and open to a vision
of the way forward, even in the ordinary circumstances of everyday life.
While choosing a practical direction to connect vision and action,
participants will take time to meet the shadows of doubt and resistance
that can sabotage success.
Integrating unhelpful contradictions, they will prepare to take the next
steps in fulfilling their dreams and destiny, wherever that may lead.
A mix of methods – including short talks, discussion, and practical
exercises using a variety of media.
We are attentive to the processes unfolding, as reflected both in
individual participants and in the group as a whole.

- periods of meditation and reflection
- opportunities for dynamic expression
- sensitivity to the multi-levelled currents of intent urging
