A few weeks ago, we started our newest group, GRIEVING TOGETHER. We have wanted to offer a group with this focus for a very long time. What’s unique about our group is that we are creating a space that welcomes anyone who has experienced a SIGNIFICANT LOSS – as opposed to focusing only on the death of someone close. Additionally, this significant loss does not have to be recent. It could have been experienced many years ago.
The reason we are opening our group up in this way is because our coaching experience has shown us that people suffer from loss every day, and there are very few places where they can be comfortable enough to feel and share their pain. In our group, a significant loss is a significant loss – and each and every situation is held with tenderness and care.
During the past few meetings, we have talked about many different losses. While the losses have taken various forms, what has been consistent is the respect extended which honors what this...
October is here and we are looking forward to sharing lots of time with you in the Academy's Yellow Room (216 North Avenue, Suite 1, Grand Junction, Colorado).
For our regular classes, we have one change to make from September. Jeffrey Turre's Qi Gong class will be moving from the Thursday morning time to Tuesday evenings, from 5 to 6PM - starting next Tuesday, October 8th. We hope this new time will give more people the opportunity to take part in this wonderful class.
Along with our regular classes, we have two new classes beginning this month:
Clear Communication BASICS, beginning October 1st, from Noon to 1:15PM:
This is our 8-week training that covers the basic components of Marshall Rosenberg’s Nonviolent Communication as well as other modalities we use in our personal coaching practice. By the end of the eight weeks, you will have a firm grasp of the Nonviolent Communication model and some...
The first week of October will bring two new offerings to our Academy for Personal Development! We are excited! Both of these classes will be held at 216 North Avenue, Suite 1, in Grand Junction, CO.
Beginning Tuesday, October 1st, from Noon to 1:15PM, our Clear Communication BASICS Class will begin. This is an 8-week course teaching effective communication tools that are easy to start using immediately. Tuition is $80 (paid on October 1st) – advanced registration is not necessary.
Like our Clear Communication Weekly Training and Practice Group we conduct each Tuesday evening, the new BASICS Class uses Nonviolent Communication as its base and utilizes other modalities to enhance learning integration.
The new BASICS Class will serve as an introduction to the model and provide lots of opportunities to learn practical ways to incorporate it into your daily relationships – with yourself and others! You will also receive a certificate of completion at the end of the 8-weeks...

For us, each of these modalities is part of the personal and spiritual development process. They have been extremely helpful on our own healing journeys, which is why it is so...
As students of A Course in Miracles, we read and talk about forgiveness quite a bit. Not only do we discuss what forgiveness means (that in truth, forgiveness is the recognition that what we thought our brother did to us did not occur), we also try to understand how we can make this recognition a daily practice.
Part of making it a daily practice is to check in and see if our perception is accurate (right-mindedness) or if we are reacting from a place of fear (wrong-mindedness or the ego). This takes awareness and practice listening to the Voice for guidance.
Until we reach this place of recognition though, we must be willing to be honest with ourselves, acknowledge our feelings, look at what we have needed, and then provide a space for love to come in and help us to let go.
Mooji taught us something very important about letting go. He says that to let go is to actually dis-identify with something. Using this definition, when we let go and forgive, we are letting go of our identity...
