Classes

​My classes are designed for groups of 8-12. Each class has a designated curriculum and assignments.  The classes are typically presented over a 4-8 week time frame. Each Body Presencing™ class is 8-12 hours and meets once a week for 2 hours. Astrology classes are different and details are specified in class description.

Astrology Class: Understanding your Chart and Your Evolving Self

 

Join me in a series of 4 astrology classes throughout this fall and winter. They can be taken as stand-alone classes or together. If taken as stand-alone, please gain permission from the instructor first. In these classes, we will explore the language and world of astrology through the signs and symbols that characterize our lives on an ancestral, psychological and evolving level.

 

In the first class, we will learn the astrological language of the signs, planets, and houses themselves. We will look at them from a symbolic perspective and then bring them down to the personal. We will choose a name from a hat to look at one person’s symbols in depth.

 

In the second class, we will weave the importance of the elements and the sun, moon and ascendant in looking at the psychological tools at play in our lives. We will also introduce the main aspects and geometric configurations in our charts and what they mean for us. Again, we will choose a name from a hat to look at their chart in more depth.

 

In the third class we will review what we have learned and talk about the importance of the planet Saturn and Saturn returns in our lives as well as look at the planet of Pluto in more depth. As these are the planets which show our deep wounds and how they show up for us in our lives, as well as how to work with them. As always, we will choose a name from a hat to look at how Saturn and Pluto play out in their lives with more depth.

 

In the fourth class, we will introduce the concept of the moon’s nodes and how they help us to understand ourselves from an evolving perspective.  We will also begin to look at the transiting planets as they continue to move and rotate around the earth and what aspects they might be making for us with our own personal symbols and lives. We will tie this together with the elements within our natal charts. Again, we will finish the day by pulling a name from a hat to look at their chart and transiting planets more specifically.

 

At the end of these four classes you will:

  • Make sense of the symbols in your astrological chart

  • Will be able to look at your chart and those of friends and family and be able to understand and accept yourself and them on a higher level 

  • Be able to find more balance in yourself and your life by balancing your inherent elemental distribution

  • Have a greater understanding of your deep moving wounds and how to work with them, so they work for you and become your greatest healer ultimately

  • Have a greater understanding of what your life purpose is

  • See different aspects in your own life in the present time and how you might be affected by and helped through the knowledge of the transiting planets and how they touch you personally

  • Have a greater sense of what you are stretching to do in this life, and how your soul can continue to grow and thrive


Final class begins on Sunday, February 17th from 9:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

 

All classes will be held at at Elements of Wellness, a Massage School at 1561 N. Warson Rd., St. Louis MO.

A Morning of Meditation, Tea, and Astrology


Join me for a morning of meditation, tea, and an astrology topic that is relevant to you personally and to all of us globally. This event will meet on Saturday, August 24th, from 9:00 a.m. until noon. ​​

Enjoy meditating in a serene environment with like-minded people, doing a guided meditation followed by tea and light discussion. The astrology topic will be about how the planets of Jupiter and Saturn show up in your chart individually, what you can understand more about yourself through these strong outer planets influence on you, and then looking at what is to come in the next two years with these planets transiting in the sign of Capricorn, and how these planetary movements may also touch you. No need to have any prior meditation or astrology experience.  Come, enjoy the morning, and learn a little bit about yourself for your personal growth. 

WHERE: 51 Graeler, Dr., St. Louis, MO. 63146. There is a walkway on the side of our house (we have a red garage door). Follow the pathway to the back of the house and enter into the doorway. Please remove your shoes upon entering the facility.

WHEN: Saturday, August 24th from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m.. This event will meet quarterly with a new topic to explore!

​Forgiveness


We know the path to a life of love, joy, and vitality begins with forgiving ourselves and others, but we aren’t always sure of how to find that path or begin that journey. Anger and resentment keep us from being able to move towards the very things we want the most.  In this four week course we will learn how our anger towards our family impacts our life today; how often what we think is about us is not about us; and the steps we can take to bring a new awareness and forgiveness into our lives. 

Classes TBA at the Forest Park Community College Continuing Education department! Forest Park Community College, 5600 Oakland Ave, St. Louis MO 63110.

Meditation for Self Growth - COMING SOON


I use meditation as a tool to know myself better. Our bodies often carry many messages for us, and a great way to access them is through meditation. Meditating first thing in the morning is a great way to start your day. Find a comfortable space and begin to breathe easily and let your breath flow through your nose if possible. Let your breath flow into your body and notice where the flow is easy and where it may be more difficult or blocked. As you notice that area, consciously breathe into it. It may be a part of you that has a message for you or that needs your attention in some way. Open yourself to what that message may be. Is there a spiritual message, or a physical one, or a symbolic one leading you to see something in you that you had been unaware of? Just take a few minutes and listen with all your senses. When you have a sense of what is going on in that area, thank it for speaking with you, and open yourself to full body awareness. Move into another realm without words, the realm of your imagination. Tune into your breath again, see if it feels any different or not, and welcome yourself back to the present. Consciously breathe a couple more times and then open your eyes. 

These classes are designed to stand alone or for weekly or biweekly classes. Learn:

  • How to quiet your mind

  • To engage all your senses in your meditation 

  • Experience guided meditation and visualization 

  • To open your mind to all possibilities 

  • To rid yourself of internal blockages 

  • To know yourself better by engaging your inner guidance  

We finish the meditation experience with 15 minutes of open sharing. Enjoy the power of a group, yet individual meditation. ​

WHEN: Dates coming soon. Mondays and Thursdays from 4:00-5:00 P.M. and Saturdays from 9:00-10:00 A.M. 

 

WHERE: COMING SOON 

COST: $20.00 per individual class or purchase 5 for the price of $75.00. Cash or check is accepted at the door, or you can pay online here.

Beyond Technique for LMT’s

 

This 8-hour class is designed to help you, the massage therapist, to listen to and hear beyond the words the client is speaking.  This weekend course provides you with a system of silent understanding which shows you what they are saying at a much deeper level through body and language cues.  The massage technique used is secondary.  You will learn a compassionate and thorough intake which surpasses the knowledge of muscles and their uses and gives you a greater understanding into the person you are working with.  This class will also enable you to understand yourself better which results in your becoming a clearer channel (vessel) for your clients.


Next class Sunday, September 11th from 9:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. This class is considered Continued Education and is offered at Elements of Wellness, a Massage School at 1561 N. Warson Rd., St. Louis MO; 314-432-1778. www.eowmassage.com
