I opened The Nest as a space of sanctity:
a place of unconditional acceptance, a sanctuary in which you may hear the deep love in your heart, and to connect with your creative, expansive, infinite nature.

at The Nest, your heart leads the way

Monthly gathering for women

Women in Spiritual Evolution (WISE)
4-part series:

The Four Agreements

August — November, 2019

Join us to experience the power of women supporting women! 

This 4-part series will focus on four powerful self-agreements, as described by Toltec wisdom teacher Don Miguel Ruiz, in his book, The Four Agreements:

  1. Be impeccable with your word
  2. Don't take things personally
  3. Don't make assumptions
  4. Always do your best

Between meetings, we will experiment with incorporating these four principles into our everyday lives. What could happen?!

This group is intended for women who

✓ love self-development

✓ accept (or are willing to consider) that we are more than our physical bodies, that we have access to a broader self

are open to meditation, sharing from the heart, and experimenting with new ways of being.

Co-facilitated by Tracy and fellow woman in spiritual evolution, Rachael Peizer.

Limited to 12 participants
➛ CLASS IS FULL - We look forward to seeing you next time!
