This workshop addresses methods for transforming personal struggles into clear insights about spiritual destiny. No efforts at turning the soul towards clear understanding of challenges are left unrewarded by the spirit. Using story, soul alchemy, neurology and inner picturing exercises we explore the destiny paths of two individuals whose spiritual struggles led to clarity about life mission. One is from genesis in the book of Job, the other is the well-known Sun Dance teaching story Jumping Mouse. Both suffered rejection and by seeking soul clarity found an inexhaustible source of spiritual force through gratitude for suffering.

Topics include, meetings with remarkable people and the circle of friends, the teaching of the angel of death, the karma of life mission, using polarity to turn struggles into insight, trust in life and developing a sense of gratitude for challenges.

    I would like very much to listen to your lectures and have read many of your books . Unfortunately, the price is far too much especially for Canadians, students and for those living humbly. You have so much to offer the world.
