The Journey From Grievance to Gratitude

Change your Partnership without Changing your Partner

A conscious relationship offers you the opportunity to treat yourself and others as a precious gift. It is healing and life- affirming. More gifts than needs are brought to such a relationship. It offers you the possibility to relate across the perceived gulf of yourself and another and to enter into each other’s hearts while remaining conscious and aware throughout.
Join me for a profound workshop investigating what maintains the distance between yourself and your partner and your longing and your loving.This workshop will take you from wherever you are with your relationship to a place of deep and abiding gratitude for the gift inherent in your challenges no matter the circumstances.

With Illana Berger & Friends

Ancient cultures used shamanic practices as a vehicle for contacting the animating forces of the universe. As an intermediary, the shaman works on behalf of the person, people, community and/or world to heal or balance what is present and out of harmony. Shamanism is a practice that involves a practitioner reaching altered states of consciousness in order to encounter and interact with the spirit world. Each person will work within their own culture of origin to discover this path for themselves. Working with diverse cultural practices from Jewish, Celtic, Native American and African traditions each person will discover their own direct path to the spirit world.

Each session is with different colleagues of mine, empowered to share their gifts with you. They specialize in the world of Spirit, healing, indigenous practices and the experience of parting the perceived veil between self and our world.

We will meet Saturday and Sunday from 11am-5:30pm each day. Meals are not included.

This is a unique opportunity to have access to numerous gifted teachers in an intimate setting.

Each weekend’s fee is $325 –
