"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it." -Rumi

Join us for this monthly gathering, as we turn our attention to the soul hygiene practices so needed in this complex and uncertain time.  Using the potent tools of writing, inquiry, body-centered practices, and ritual, each month we will explore a theme to unburden our hearts and create more spaciousness within our bodies and souls. As we practice the courage to be with the authenticity of our hearts, we grow our ability to embody our aliveness and compassion.    

This monthly circle is intended to provide refuge, as we examine our obstacles to feeling grief, gratitude, and love, while building a community of concerned hearts in the process, and sharing our deep emotional selves to bring us into the arms of the sacred. The beauty of inner work is its capacity to expand into our communities and the world.         

1/25:  Resistance to Grief

2/22:  Opening to our Grief

3/22:  Resistance to Joy and Gratitude

4/26:  Opening to our Joy and Gratitude

5/24:  Resistance to Love and Compassion

6/28:  Opening to Love and Compassion

Over the course of six months, we will meet the fourth Tuesday of the month from 6:00–8:00pm eastern time on Zoom. 

Though each month is meant to build upon one another, participants can join at any time.

$25 drop-in.  $125 for all 6 sessions (Get one free)

"Summer undoubtedly has a knowledge base, deeply intuitive nature, and wisdom that has allowed me to become a believer of what the enneagram offers and promotes, which I believe is healing. I am thankful for the ways in which Summer provided me with the skills and tools to really see myself and begin to trust myself."

—Genesis Adams

"I highly recommend Summer's classes. I really value her ability to incorporate practice into her workshops and to foster open and co-creative spaces. Summer has a great way of inviting presence, and has helped me to dig into what I am noticing and use it to enhance my understanding of myself and my journey."


"Over the past 5 years I have participated in workshops and classes, in person and virtually, led by Summer. She has an amazing spirit that creates a sacred space for discovery, trust, vulnerability and acceptance. My spiritual journey and discipleship have been fueled with her by my side."

—Julie Nelson

Awareness of interpersonal relationships is in part a gift to us as we seek to understand. Getting better acquainted in who we are, how we function, where we see ourselves in relationships, I think gives us a healthier perspective of humanity. I have found that this enneagram workshop is the bow that unwraps this gift.

—Chaplain Abel Moran
