Facilitator’s Cancellation Policy

If an event must be cancelled due to unforeseen events (such as the weather or illness of the facilitator) the event will be rescheduled. Every attempt will be made to accommodate a new date that will suit your needs. If that is not possible, you may apply your tuition to another event of your choice, including private sessions.

Resistance is normal and we can work through it.  You may be apprehensive because you sense that you are about to experience a major change. Resistance may appear in the form of sickness, fatigue, fear, anger, procrastination, or being too busy to attend. I encourage you to attend the event anyway. You’ll  learn how to transmute resistance, dis-ease and bring yourself into deeper self-awareness and healing. If you have a fever, please stay home, and take good care of yourself.
