This step in understanding will translate to many areas of your life as you come to perceive & integrate your own healing presence.

This is deep, powerful and beautiful inner work. If you have been called to share on this planet, at this time, this is your invitation to join this exploration. Immersion 2 will begin to dive into the nuts and bolts of guiding deep healing relaxztion & Yoga Nidra. This first step is to facilitate and establish this within.
