A Special Message from Marilyn Barrick

Dear Friends,

      I invite you to learn and share with me as we come together to explore spiritual psychological transformation. We will focus on one (or two) of these seven workshops—whichever topics you prefer. Or you may wish to opt for the new full-day dream intensive outlined in my cover letter. Truly it is a joy to experience a deeper understanding of who we are and who we may become!
      During our time together, I will offer spiritual teachings and psychological techniques to help you become more creative at work, more carefree in play, more caring in your relationships, and more in touch with your inner nature of divine love.
      You no longer need to carry the old baggage of uncomfortable memories, false beliefs, unresolved emotions, or automatic defensive reactions. These old momentums stand in the way of your being the loving, creative, powerful person you really are.
      In the workshops, we will pursue a deeper perspective on the lessons our souls are meant to learn from problematic experiences. Through guided imagery, spiritual meditations, and interactive exercises, you will embark on a sacred journey into your inner world to explore and touch with gentle awareness whatever needs to be healed.
      You may discover inner treasures of your soul, jewels that lie hidden behind protective walls you have built in an attempt to shut out pain and suffering. You may learn how to face your pain, love yourself free from hurts, and forgive those who have caused you harm.
      As we pursue our healing quest, we look forward to personal transformation and an increasing readiness to greet with hope and confidence our daily challenges and the oncoming age of Aquarius.

                                        May love and victory be yours,

                                                          Marilyn Barrick
