We will weave both through movement, meditation and community.
A time to deepen and nourish the capacity to live with kind awareness in all situations. Offering rituals and resources to meet the deep human needs for solitude and belonging; intimacy and connection.

Jaime and Juliana have not charged for the teachings they will share. It has taken hundreds of hours to learn how to offer these kind of healing spaces. This truly is an investment in your well being, the health and happiness that grows from loving. We do not set a fee because we chose to embody generosity and trust that people will honour the value and give. Generosity strengthens the giver and receiver. Both Jaime and Juliana are devoting their lives to the bringing forth of a charitable trust for young adults to be change makers of mindfulness and love.
