Cost: $1200. To hold your space, a deposit of half the tuition is required by Sept 16th unless otherwise agreed, and payment plans are available to those who require them. I offer this program at a low cost with the goal of making this wisdom available to more people. In return, I ask that participants agree to share some of what they learn with others, that the cycle of wellness spreads. This knowledge is our birthright. It is high time we claim it and pass it on.
