Shining the Light on YOU!

Never forget that once upon a time, in an unguarded moment, you recognized yourself as a friend.

Hello Everyone!

Does a Crystal Bowl and Gong Healing sound good to you? If so, we will be having our first one with Kim St.Germain and Mary Hertert THIS FRIDAY, March 13, at 7 to 8PM. We’re excited to attend ourselves – and it would be great to have many of you join us!

Last week, we got off to a good start with our Enneagram class, and we will be back for more Tuesday evening, beginning at 6:30PM. The Enneagram is a valuable tool in our personal relationships and, most importantly, our relationship with ourselves. In addition, if you are an employer or work with others, knowing the Enneagram can be extremely useful. It is excellent for bringing awareness and understanding to unconscious patterns of behavior. Don’t worry if you missed the first session. We still have eight more information-packed evenings planned!

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...

Our Gratitude for You

People are suffering - and they are not able to fully devote themselves to solving their problems because of the busyness in their lives.

Hello Friends!

Are you ready for another week of learning and joining at the Academy for Personal Development? We are! – And we are finally ready to offer our new week-long coaching experience: INTENSE FOCUS. We created this program for both individuals and couples.

Beginning Next Tuesday, March 3, at 6:30PM, we will present the first of nine sessions focusing on the Enneagram. You don’t want to miss this opportunity for deeper self-understanding and connection with others.

Each session is $10 and will give you a wealth of information to apply directly to your life.


One thought that has been on our minds lately is the importance of coming together with others in a spirit of acceptance for those with whom we are joining and ourselves.

We have many...

This Week at the Academy

Hello Everyone, 

We hope you are doing well on this very wintry day here in Western Colorado!

It’s hard to believe that we are in our last week of January. We’ve had a wonderful month and are already looking forward to more going on in February.

Our monthly Grieving Together gathering begins Friday evening, February 7, from 6 to 8PM. This will be an appetizer/dessert potluck and our goal for this group is to create friendship and connection that extends beyond the monthly meetings. To sustain the Yellow Room, this offering will be $10. 

Also, on Saturday, February 15, from 1 to 4PM, our friend Becky Zook will be holding her 3-Hour SoulCollage Class. SoulCollage is a powerful, enlightening intuitive collage process for self-discovery and community. By participating in the class, you will be creating an atmosphere of support, self-acceptance, and personal empowerment, all in a fun, creative way! The class is $45 (cash or check) and you can register with Becky by...
