Course Description

There are powerful cycles at work in your life. 

This Shamanic Passages Institute course focuses on the inevitable transition everyone makes between the first part of their lives and the last. This passage – known variously as Mid-Birth or "Mid-Life Crisis" – defines the intention and character of the individual for the last, important phase of the Life Journey.
However, this course is valuable at any stage of your personal evolution! It is especially important for you if you are:
  • wondering about your life purpose
  • feeling the need for significant life change
  • experiencing a sense of lost direction
  • desiring greater spiritual purpose and connection
  • facing end-of-life issues
The mythical Phoenix is a powerful and appropriate image for this process. Phoenix Rising™ proposes this mythical image and story as a springboard from your current life story into your next phase of self-creation. 
In this workshop:
  • Explore areas of your personal dynamics that affect how your life is currently unfolding
  • Disassemble" yourself with the guidance of Spirit and prepare for your next phase
  • Work with your spirit guides to learn how to regain your power and begin a new life for yourself

At the end of this course, you will have a clearer understanding of where you are in your life and where you want to go next.
