Program Description

Radical change is sweeping through our lives, our society, and our planet. Rather than responding with fear to what feels beyond our control, it’s time to celebrate the emergence of a new way of being. Come connect with the life that is calling you away from lack, anxiety, stress, and scarcity.

This weekend, you will learn how to open your heart to everything, to live with unconditional acceptance of yourself and others, and to step into your highest self. HeatherAsh Amara is an author and guide who also teaches with Toltec master teacher don Miguel Ruiz and has facilitated hundreds of workshops and retreats.

Join her to learn and experience:

  • Specific techniques passed down from the ancient sages of the Toltecs for opening both your heart and your intuition, which are your true guides on the unfolding path of life
  • To “see” and work with the underlying energetic patterns that either create struggle or foster ease and flow
  • Toltec and other ancient practices for letting go of the things that cause you suffering
  • How to embrace the creative courage of a warrior of love and beauty.

This creatively experiential workshop draws on ancient shamanic wisdom to open you to new perceptions and invites you to embody expansive new concepts. You will leave empowered and ready to express your inspired vision of how life can be.
