       “Team UP” Trainings & Programs

 Fulfill a higher purpose in the process of moving people & projects forward … Together.

Our “Team UP” trainings and programs vary by topic and length and are designed for service-oriented people who are interested in applying ancient wisdom teachings, consciousness-based principles & practices, ceremony, and modern science to their own personal, professional, spiritual lives and to their integration and up-leveling work with clients and program participants.  Teaming Up with awakened and gifted others is one of our greatest opportunities for moving people, projects, and communities forward…consciously and creatively… Together.

As part of our efforts to facilitate humanity’s conscious evolution, we equip participants with transformational teachings, tools, and practices that inspire and empower them to live in their Authentic & Higher Self, clear old patterns, blocks, and imprints,  collaborate more harmoniously, communicate more consciously, navigate  life’s changes and transitions with more grace and ease, embrace meaningful opportunities, fulfill a sense of Soul Purpose/ Calling/ Destiny … and more.

Our current “Team UP” program uses a Medicine Wheel approach to conscious service and leadership that empowers people to step into the greater possibilities of their lives:

This training equips healing arts practitioners with the tools, practices, and modalities for empowering their clients to  move forward on their soul’s evolutionary journey and to help address the opportunities, needs, and issues that arise on the path of awakening. The journey to fulfill one’s soul purpose/Calling is filled with immense opportunity and fulfillment, invitations for growth and up-leveling, obstacles to be faced and overcome, and wounds, imprints, or patterns to be healed and cleared so that the greatest version(s) of one’s life, relationships, and Calling can be more fully actualized.  Advances in integrative healing and energy medicine make this not only  possible, but far more  swift, easy, and effective  than most people realize. This innovative program is for new or existing healing arts practitioners who have truly done their own personal work and wish to develop their skills and mastery for working with clients as a Level 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5  Integrative Healing Practitioner.

Participation in the CSL Medicine Wheel program is required for acceptance to this program.
