Happy March to YOU!

God spoke to me in flowers today. But I had my heart set on words, so I almost missed the conversation.

Hello Dear Friends!

We’re looking forward to seeing you all this week at one or more of the classes we are offering at our Academy for Personal Development. See our full March calendar by following this link!


Tuesday, March 3, beginning at 6:30PM, will be a great evening as we embark on our first of nine classes focusing on the Enneagram. The Enneagram solves the mystery of why we do what we do by bringing awareness to our childhood patterns and what we inherently fear, value, and desire. The Enneagram is truly insightful, and we are very excited to share it!

Along with all of our other classes, we will have our second Grieving Together meeting on Friday, March 6, from 6 to 8PM. Please plan to bring books and other resources you have used. We’re looking forward to growing this group into a valuable community for anyone...

Clear Communication BASICS Begins Tuesday at NOON!

Hello Everyone!

We hope your week is off to a great start! We are excited for another week of learning and growing together.

Tuesday, January 14, from Noon to 1:15PM, we will begin a new series of our Clear Communication BASICS - and we are really looking forward to it!

In all of our work, our goal is to help people create happy and peaceful lives. Communication is a huge part of life, and when our relationships are not what we would like them to be, it is extremely difficult to have a happy and peaceful life. A new way of communicating and connecting with yourself and others IS POSSIBLE and our class will be a great resource for you.

In our Clear Communication BASICS class, we learn to communicate consciously, rather than relying on the old programming we have developed during our childhoods and throughout our lives. Further, the tools we learn can be used at work, with our families, friends, and children!

If you have been part of our Clear Communication BASICS in the past, you are...

January 2020 in the Yellow Room

2020 calendar events january Jan 06, 2020

New year, new month, new calendar. Click here to download January's calendar.

Also - new group! Beginning this Wednesday from 5:30 to 6PM we will be joining with others to share our experiences with The Presence Process. Beginning Meditation with LaVaun will now be at 7PM.

In addition, what before was our weekly Clear Communication class will now be Clear Communication ADVANCED.

Learning the Nonviolent Communication model is very helpful when it comes to communication, but there are also other factors that affect how we relate to one another. If we haven't fully healed our past or if we don't understand the default strategies of our personality type, for example, we bring each of these aspects into every interaction.

Both of us have had a lot of training in different modalities and are lifelong students. Our goal is to bring all that we have learned and share it with you! The time for Clear Communication ADVANCED is still Tuesday Evenings from 6:30 to...

Hello Friends!

Since the first day we opened the doors to our Academy for Personal Development, through all our classes and personal coaching our mission has been inclusion, experiential education, and kindness.
