Important Information about the Healing Journey

The big picture of healing is beyond what our little minds can discern.  We have always embraced the idea that there are many ways for people to be assisted on their spiritual journey and that no one way is better than another.  It is all an individual process which you get to choose, for YOU are the master of your destiny.  Only you can decide if something is right for you or not.

We have even found that some of our greatest healing and guidance has come from finding what we don’t resonate with so that we better know what we do want and the direction we will go in finding it.

At Insight Awareness, we strive to offer integral practitioners and provide services that may hold value for many types of people.  We would love to think that everybody will fall in love with their teachers/readers and fully resonate with what is being presented, yet we know that is not always possible.  So, if you choose a class, workshop, or a reading, and find that you do not agree with part of what is being presented, you can choose to embrace it or let it go.  It is your choice.  While it serves all of us to be open and occasionally acquire new tools or guidance from a different perspective, we encourage you to stand in your own truth and be your own light.


I understand that I am registering for instruction in an activity which may involve physical, emotional, and/or psychological activity and that in case of such an undertaking there is always a risk involved. I understand that in a group setting the instructor cannot always monitor my physical, emotional, and psychological limits, and that I am therefore responsible for assessing the risk any activity poses to me, and choosing a safe course of action for myself.

By participating in any workshop or event at Insight Awareness, I agree to assume the risk and responsibility for any injuries or damages suffered by me arising out of my participation in this workshop.

Food Allergies

In connection with any food allergies I have, I understand that I am responsible for knowing whether any ingredients to which I am allergic exist in any foods that are served at Insight Awareness. If I am uncertain about the ingredients of these foods, I am responsible for learning that information from the person(s) serving such food.

Use of Likeness and Photography

I understand that while I am at Insight Awareness, attending an Insight Awareness course or participating in any other Insight Awareness event, Insight Awareness may be taking photographs of participants. Some of these photographs will be used by Insight Awareness for promotional, educational, or informational purposes in its catalogs, brochures, website and newsletters. By coming to, attending at or participating in any other Insight Awareness event, I agree that Insight Awareness may take photographs that include my image and that such photographs may be used by Insight Awareness for promotional, educational, and informational purposes without compensation to me of any kind.
