This is for you if...

You want a life changing experience with the ultimate form of privacy, protection and pampering possible. This complete experience is custom designed so that you can have the most profound transformation possible- even in the comfort of your own home if you choose!

The overnight private journey session will begin by spending some time connecting with what’s coming up in your life including:

  • relationships
  • exploring marriage/divorce, 
  • career,
  • life purpose, 
  • grief, 
  • heartbreak that needs healing, 
  • big life transitions and life changes, 
  • parenthood, 
  • exploring ideas, visions, and creative projects. 

Customized Private Journey Session -

This customized, private ceremonial journey is a 12-hour overnight experience at either my private sanctuary in Venice or your place. 

You'll have an opportunity to share what you want support with, what you want in your life and what you want to change. We will co-create the experience, collaborating on the format and then setting the intention. 

I’ll explain the work, and we'll explore your preferences, desires and fears to design your perfect ceremony experience. Then we'll begin the indigenous style practices designed to connect you with nature, your needs and intentions. The journey unfolds as you experience a state of awareness and beauty through an experiential Great Mystery school much like the poetry of Rumi.

You'll receive individualized attention and guidance based on what emerges. I will guide you in an evening of breathwork, bodywork, energy work, movement, dance, sound work, and yoga. 

The evening will end with a bowl of homemade organic vegetarian warming soup. If staying at my Venice Sanctuary, you will have your own room with a queen bed, organic mattress, private bathroom and shower for resting and dreaming. 

You'll be served a light breakfast of coffee, tea, fruit and pastries in the morning. We’ll have an integration session to bridge the journey into your life. You’ll receive guidance and support with what shows up and how to work with it. You'll leave with your very own customized playlist so you have the sound experiences and memories to integrate into your life forever.

Before I met Sarah I had no idea how my unconscious behavior around my childhood trauma of growing up in a war had affected my daily
life. I wasn’t completely present. Sarah’s ability to hold space and awareness allowed me to work through what I was confronted with, even when I wasn’t really aware of the patterns. But Sarah’s best guidance has been in my life presently. I have taken complete responsibility of my life. I feel more available to life. There is an excitement about waking up to live. Thank you so much Sarah.

I’m coming up on a WHOLE YEAR being WEED-FREE thanks to your support! It’s a big deal to me! Removing that impulse from my thought process forced me to fill in the gap with more proactive stuff and now I don’t feel like a slacker so much!

Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you for being so thoughtful, supportive and open-minded. Even entertaining the idea of going to therapy was a daunting and scary idea to me. I will always be grateful for your work and wisdom.
