  • Gain a deeper understanding of what drains your energy and preoccupies your mind, learning how to liberate these patterns.
  • Learn how to work with personal and family demons.
  • Understand the interconnectedness of your emotional patterns, and how a single pattern can impact multiple areas of your life. 
  • Integrate the practice by working with clay and art, to more fully express and feel the process of transformation.
  • Acquire powerful and uniquely flexible tools to help relieve the suffering of others as a therapist, coach, or facilitator.
