Find Guidance for your journey with Thomas Moore, Lorna Byrnes, Michael Meade and many others.

We all seek guidance in our lives. We all aspire to navigate life optimally.
How do we bring our gifts to the world and learn to love more freely and wildly?

Life is filled with uncertainties and challenges. Guidance provides us with a sense of direction and helps us make informed choices. Sometimes the road ahead of us is clear, sometimes it is not. How do we make important decisions? How do we navigate life’s complexities with authenticity? Which path makes the most sense for us on a deeper level?

We live in a responsive universe; one interested in helping, collaborating, and educating us. The universe provides guidance for finding a fulfilling job, relationship, happiness, and health. There are many ways to find guidance and connect with the flow of the universe. We are going to explore several of them in this fascinating summit: ancient practices like astrology, tarot, dreams, and connecting to spirit guides & angels to modern versions such as synchronicity.

During this three day summit we will bring some of the best teachers in these fields to you. They will help you to find the big and smaller clues for finding guidance in your life. In this summit we want to give you perspectives and practical tools to find guidance, and live a magical, soulful life.

This summit is a good fit if you want to: 

  • Find ways to ‘read’ the world we live in for guidance
  • Cultivate a mindset of curiosity and openness
  • Adapt to changing circumstances while maintaining a sense of direction.
  • Discover and nurture the relationships with spirit guides / your innate genius
  • Get mythic support
  • Collaborate with the universe 
  • Connect with miracles (recognize synchronicities, intuitions, break though of other world)
"When in doubt, turn to wonder. Stories open the heart and the mind, and myths can guide us in ways that reason and logic cannot." - Michael Meade

Guidance from Jungian Psychology

In this personal and inspirational interview, Jungian Analyst Ken James talks about ways that Jungian psychology provides guidance. Once we are stuck in life, we turn towards the unconscious and the Self. The Self is considered to be the guiding center. Many of Jung’s insights can provide guidance, such as synchronicity, active imagination, and Jung’s fascination with divination systems such as the I Ching and Tarot. 

In this session, you will learn: 

  • Jungian psychology and the view on guidance

Along the way, he studied voice at the American Conservatory of Music and learned a modality of music therapy at the Institute for Consciousness and Music in Baltimore, Maryland. He also completed four years of postdoctoral study in theology and scripture at the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago. He has taken lay ordination in Zen Buddhism and has studied the Kabbalah with a Lubavitcher rabbi in Chicago.

Ken’s studies of the Tarot began at an early age. He was introduced to the notion of divination by an elderly aunt from Scotland who read tea leaves.
