About The Teacher

Awaken Your Intuitive Muse

We all get hunches, gut feelings, a soul whisper or even a knowing… yet how do we learn to trust our inner world? Our Soul communicates to us through feelings, images, words and sensations that flow through each of our energy centers (the chakras) and hold the keys to healing, greater joy, freedom, awareness and pleasure. We are all born with this divine connection and at the Pura Vida Playshop we can play and explore, go deeper and laugh at the truths that arise!

* What is intuition?

* How can we tell the difference between intuition and fear?

* Get PAST fear and get CLEAR.

* What is your intuitive style? Are you an emotional intuitive (empath), mental, spiritual, physical or a combo of these?

Get past fear/culture/tribal voices that may be blocking your true inner wisdom. Connect to your own Soul-voice in fun & practical ways and learn how to trust your intuitive muse! We will explore through lecture, meditation, journaling, group and partnered exercises. Making way for our Soul voice to rise and embodying our truths!
