February 21 , 2015 9:30am to 5:00pm
National College of Natural Medicine, Portland, OR

with an evening program of the Sufi practice of Zikr, 7:00pm to 9:00pm


This highly-interactive workshop is designed for traditional and non-traditional healers of all levels of experience. Together we will inquire into the living nature of this alignment, and into the ways we may unconsciously work against it to create undue effort, stress, and even burnout.

You will learn practical techniques that can assist you in cultivating a deep intuition, a healing presence, and a personal commitment to healing that is free of egoic hindrance
