Courses and retreats to bring you home to yourself with Wende Jowsey MA. Ed. Women in the midlife rite of passage are like treasure chests of possibility. My work involves creating learning experiences where it's easier for inner and outer worlds to merge. We are more than the bodies, personalities, and stories we inhabit. Inside each of us resides something as ancient and ageless as it is powerful-- something calling us home. This is the only journey there is, and one which my work has shown can be undertaken by all of us. As someone with more than two decades experience in creating and facilitating workshops and retreats, I draw from a variety of traditions and tools for growth.

Contact Wende This is a multi-faith spiritual meditation and study group , so please be aware that we refer both to God and the Divine in the language used. The tools and and esoteric teachings are largely sourced from Maha Guru Shakti Durga, founder of Shanti Mission and disciple of Sri Shakti Amma. The meditations, exercises and concepts presented have real practical application for expanding our capacities and healing issues in our everyday life. Meditation allows us to re-align our consciousness with the Divine- as does learning to work with the holisitic function of the major chakras as tools for life change, spiritual evolution and points of entry and exit for subtle energy.

"The Midlife course helped and inspired me in various ways. I was encouraged to look into the past [look in mirror] and see what I was and what I wanted to become.. I realised that I had many good years left in me yet. I made new friends and learnt that others experience the same emotions I do. I have had experiences I never thought possible. I was given the encouragement to grow and be honest with myself in what I wanted for me." W. King
