Awaken Inner Vision: The SoulJour Sessions
February 28 - March 28
Happening Sundays on Zoom
$28 each / $111 for all 5
For the final phase of our "Awaken Inner Vision" Series, we'll meet every Sunday morning for a virtual SoulJour Experience with a powerhouse female SoulJour Admiral. In these intimate SoulJour Sessions we'll go deep into our souls – the place where intuition and wisdom reside. Through movement, groovement, meditation, storytelling, journaling we'll experience the teacher's wisdom, connect with fellow SoulJours, tune in to our Selves. We'll learn, grow, and evolve our current reality into the life we were born to live. Experiencing the subtle body, listening to God's whispers, we'll awaken our inner vision that's always there, just waiting to be heard.
Starting and ending on a full moon, with a new moon and an equinox in between, we'll meet in the Zoom room for 90-minutes.

For this SoulJour Series, our spirit animal is the J A G U A R
Native to the jungle and revered in ancient cultures, the jaguar is sexy, confident, and fearless. The jaguar's gift is its vision – visualizing until manifestation has occurred. Breathing from the center of its being, jaguars are in tune with the subtle body. They symbolize the power of intent, reminding us to go within, release our fears, and heal our emotions in order to awaken our inner sight. Traveling to another culture provides us an experience to reflect upon the direction we are heading with greater ease – to reveal Essence, activate Purpose and rock Truth.
