Zoom Event! The Shift Is About To Hit The Fan

Wendell Jones, Thursday March 23, 6:30PM (PST), $45

March is the start of a massive astrological event with Saturn moving into pisces (3 years) and Pluto moving into Aquarius (10 years). This transit will change the whole structure of society and human development for the next 5 to 10 years, both on a societal level and as an individual. Pluto is the transformer and the last time it moved into a new sign was 2008. The benefit of this transit is that with understanding astrology, you can figure out what changes you need to focus on in order to grow. Every time Pluto moves it also creates opportunities for those who can take action. Meaning, this is a once in a decade chance to use this planetary momentum to drastically change the things in your life that aren’t in alignment.

Wendell Jones has spent the last 30 years studying and teaching transpersonal development using modalities such as evolutionary astrology, health, kriyas, hermeticism, and meditation. Along with studying under great lifelong mentors, he also graduated with a Vedic Science Degree from MIU. Using his comprehensive approach he has built a proven track record coaching high-level executives from Netflix, Reddit, and TikTok as well as major entertainers like Summer Walker and Erykah Badu to reach their personal and professional goals.


Zoom Event! Archetypal Goddess & the Mythology of Your Life (a monthly series) 


Vanessa Couto, Mondays, April 10, 6 - 8 pm (Pacific Standard time), $25 per class *this series will not be recorded 

Myth gives us a lot of room to reimagine and engage in conversation with the archetypes. There are many myths, and one isn’t better than the other, as we are free to focus on the ones that resonate with our lives now and can guide us through our self- exploration. Myths serve as an entryway for us the explore our deep inner landscape. In each workshop series, we’ll discuss a different, oft-misunderstood archetypal goddess and their story. Through exploring these goddess myths, we’re invited to take a sideways look at their stories and see how they resonate or even guide our lives. We will be joined by both well and lesser-known, but oft-misunderstood Greek Goddesses and through guided journeying, journaling, and sharing our experiences and stories together,  we will gain insights on what gifts each of these goddesses are awarding, as both guidance and help in your life, as well as in your work in the world. 

April 10 - Hecate: Liminality & Guidance
Lastly, with Hecate, we’ll explore guidance and protection as we traverse the liminal spaces in our lives.
