In these extraordinary times, relationships are becoming more challenging. We are being called to higher consciousness.

Join us on this journey of exploring and creating Conscious Relationships with others, and most importantly with ourselves.

  • What is Consciousness?  What is Awareness?  Is There a Difference?
