This is a journey of a lifetime, one that invites you into deep positive change and opens you to a reverence for all that is, for there is nothing quite like practicing and exploring the Goddesses of yoga in Her earthy roots, sleeping at the base of magnificent trees, drinking from glacial waters, feeling rain on your face and the summer sun on your skin.

Price: $749 until June 21st (International Yoga Day!) $897 after June 21st until August 1st, 2016.

She is currently a doctoral student at CIIS in East-West Psychology where her focus is ecofeminism and depth psychology, the intersection of spirit and matter, and transformational crisis and breakthrough. She uses an alchemical lens to view the relationship between psychological, spiritual, and somatic growth and change, and finds archetypal astrology a useful map for navigating this process on an individual basis.
