Workshops & Retreats
Sage Foundations offers workshops and retreats designed to meet people where they are & support each person’s personal journey needs.
Our classes offer participants extensive and quality content, as well as personal experiential learning opportunities. Our programs include three key elements—intention, intuition, and integration—in order to facilitate whole life change and manifestation. It is our goal that all participants experience some kind of shift at the soul deep level that moves them along their healing or soul-journey path. We offer introductory and more advanced opportunities to meet you wherever you are in your process. Below is a list of workshops we offer, though the frequency they are delivered is in part determined by interest shown. Be sure to send us an email if there is a class you would like to take that is not currently on the schedule.

*Prerequisite required: In order to participate in these advanced multi-day events, we prefer attendees to have already taken at least one of the Introductory classes above. Foundational concepts are part of the introductory programs that will prepare participants for the deeper work of these advanced programs
The Spiral Journey series is our version of the healing walk around the medicine wheel. Medicine wheels and mandalas not only represent cosmic archetypes, but also the directions within humanity through which we can journey for healing and enlightenment, also called the Hero's Journey by Joseph Campbell. Mandala specifics vary between and even within some cultures, but many core concepts of how we grow spiritually and come into greater harmony with the divine are universal. Our journey provides a combination of foundational concepts and experiential opportunities for participants to start from wherever they are in their work and to develop in whatever ways their soul requires.
