Classes to Promote Healing and Self-Empowerment

Spirit Alignment (Certificate) Program

In this class we learn how to provide a complete 1 ½ - 2 hour session of gentle and soothing bodywork on another person.  Although the effects of receiving this type of session are similar to receiving an enhanced relaxation massage, the procedure and purpose for doing this are very different. The focus of the session is to first identify what our heart really wants and to set the intention for the session to reveal the many ways we are blocking ourselves from achieving it. The alignment session’s purpose is to provide the necessary healing that will re-connect us to what is truly meaningful in our lives.  By cleansing our auric field and restoring balance to our meridian and chakra systems, we are more likely to manifest our real desires and visions in the world.

The session itself includes learning a variety of techniques and different modalities blended together. The end result is a complete release of body tension, the elimination of mind chatter and a profound sense of peace and physical relaxation as a person experiences being more connected to their inner being or essence.

This program is ideal for massage therapists, experienced holistic practitioners or those looking to start their own practice so they can offer this type of healing session to others.

If interested in taking this training, a class is planned to begin in June 2019 through November 2019 in Stony Plain, Alberta. The program will be on alternate Fridays: June 7th & 21st, July 5th & 19th, Aug. 9th & 23rd, Sept.6th & 20th, Oct. 4th & 18th and Nov. 1st & 15th, and will include 30 practice sessions done outside of class time in order to earn a certificate of proficiency.

Healing with the Tarot (Part 1)

This involves a series of classes designed to give you greater insight into yourself and your life experiences. Each card’s meaning will be covered in depth (including its astrological significance) along with the understanding that the cards are a type of sacred language that can be used to communicate with your higher self. This is the part of you who knows why you are here and what your soul hoped to accomplish by incarnating at this important juncture of Earth’s history.

You can peek into your soul’s journey by understanding your birth signature which is based on the date you were born and the name provided to you at birth. These two pieces of information were not random but precisely designed to create the kind of life experiences that you needed to grow and evolve in this lifetime.

Through the course of this class, you will identify what these experiences are including abilities you have brought with you to help overcome and work through your Soul lessons. You will be shown how to calculate a life cycles chart for yourself from your date of birth onward showing the most likely years these challenges will surface in your life.

You will learn how to ask questions and use specific layouts to find answers. Upon completion of this class, you will take with you a more thorough understanding of who you are at a soul level and be able to connect with your higher self when you would like help with a decision, insight into a particular problem or to simply ask for guidance.

If interested in taking this training, a class is planned to begin in June through November this year in Stony Plain, Alberta. The classes will be held on one Tuesday a month for six months with assignments to be completed between class time: June 11th, July 9th, Aug. 6th, Sept. 10th, Oct. 15th and Nov. 12th from 9:30 – 3:00pm.

Complete Pendulum Dowsing Course

This series of classes will teach you how to work with a pendulum and connect to your own higher guidance. The basic training is required before taking additional classes that specialize in a specific area of study. Some of these specific areas will be introduced in the basic training in order to offer ideas as to the vast number of possibilities out there for developing your own practice using dowsing as your primary area of expertise.

The main purpose is to get you properly matched with the subject that causes you to feel a sense of joy at the mere thought of being able to do this work to assist others. For some it may be about nutrition and health maintenance. For others, it might be delving into other lifetimes, digging up and clearing old patterns or at least a hundred other possibilities. Before getting ahead of ourselves, however, basic know how is a must.

Spirit of the Tarot Class Reviews

What Other Students have said about the Spirit of the Tarot Classes ...

Spirit of the Tarot is an amazing voyage of self-discovery. It truly helps you to get to the heart of who you are, why things are happening in your life and the lessons you are here to learn. Marilyn teaches you to use the cards as a tool for personal introspection and she presents the Tarot in a very positive way.  A must for anyone on their path to enlightenment. Shelley

Tarot has helped me find myself.  I am walking further and further down my own path. I talk about Tarot to anyone and everyone I meet and have found that people are not shocked as I thought they would be, but say things like, ‘oh, my sister does tarot’ or ‘wow, would you read a card for me?’ Bottom line, Tarot’s time has come. It is no longer taboo, I think the Gypsy Archetype is gone. Tammy

If you really want to gain an understanding of the tarot cards, this is the course to take! With each class, the exercises allowed us to see the cards in a different way and develop an appreciation for each of their meanings. Previously, I found that reading a meaning in a book was often unclear, confusing or hard to figure out, so I especially appreciated having Marilyn’s experience as reference as well as her guidance in learning different methods to interpret a card or spread. It was fun to learn together in a group and see how a card may mean something different to each of us as individuals. It was also fun to hear about others’ experiences and lightbulb moments! 

As well, I liked that the focus of the course was not to predict the future but to help us with day-to-day stuff. The answers are already within us and sometimes we just need a helpful tool to recognize or see them from another perspective. Thank you Marilyn for this illuminating journey.

Firstly, thank you Marilyn for teaching this course. While it sometimes felt like I was drowning in information, in the long fun it has been an enlightening and very informative (not to mention entertaining) six months.  Unexpectedly what I have learned most about is …..myself!  Doing the exercises you suggested and playing with the cards has been a real eye opener for me. It is amazing that the cards you draw have so much relevance to your daily challenges and frustrations. I know that I will continue to read and learn down the road? If there is a Part II, sign me up!
