A 12 Month One on One Offering of Accompaniment and Guidance
During this 12 month mentorship program, you will have the opportunity to slow down and deeply listen to your life. Not looking for fixes. Not looking for things that are wrong with you. Not trying to improve yourself. Not trying to reach some kind of ideal or "should" for your life.
Instead, you will be invited to practice knowing and holding your life in a different way. We will listen and pay attention to your life as a tender wild creature given into your stewardship.
Through practices like dream tending, active imagination, movement, story telling, ritual, and deep listening, we will carve out time and space to offer deep attention and loving care to your life. We will explore the myths, questions, wounds, longings, and dreams shaping your life.
Mary Oliver asked us what we would do with our one wild and precious lives. Here we ask a slightly different version of that beautiful question: What does your one wild and precious life plan on doing with you?
This is for you if you want to deepen into the depth and mythic dimensions of your life, learn to care for your life with more ease and friendship, and fall in love with the tender wild creature you are here to take care of.
Limited to 4 spots.
This Program Includes:
A 90 minute private session with Vanya every other week
Customized teachings, readings, and guidance
One guided intensive weekend retreat (zoom or in person options/travel and lodging not included)
Email Access to Vanya
Online Course on Dream Tending
Two Part Video Seminar on Imaginal Ways of Knowing
"Vanya’s teachings have filled up a longing inside of me that I didn’t know I had. Through her courses I’ve learned how to make sense of the subtle realms of archetype, dream, and myth. These ways of knowing are hard to come by in our modern culture, and satiate a deep part of my soul. I feel more whole, now that I’m able to incorporate her teachings into my everyday life and in my work as a counselor."
This mentorship experience might be right for you if:
Want to learn how to care for your life in a different way
Want to cultivate a deep friendship with yourself
You are longing for meaningful and caring accompaniment and community as you find your way to more freedom
You feel tired of the status quo and are beginning to become aware of the bullshit messages of the patriarchy, but you don’t know what else is possible
You feel rushed through your busy days and sometimes feel like you are spinning and trying to keep everything going and everyone happy, but humming below the surface of things is a longing for more
You spend so much energy doing the things you are supposed to do, but are not finding the meaning in them that you used to find or had hoped to find
With this mentorship you will receive:
Private Sessions Every Other Week
In these 90 minute private sessions, we will carve out space for you to slow down and pay close attention to your life. Through conversation, story, imaginal practices, dream tending, and deep listening we will notice the longings, stories, and questions shaping your life. We will cultivate a way of being with your wild life that is generous, true, and full of friendship and care.
One Weekend Intensive
During the course of the 12 months, we will plan a weekend intensive as we listen to what is coming up in your life. Once we have a sense for what is stirring in your life, I'll put together a personalized weekend intensive retreat. We can do this online or in person.
Customized Teachings & Readings
As we listen to your life, I will offer individualized teachings and reading resources for you.
For example, if we notice that you feel drawn to synchronicities, I will focus on some teachings and readings on the topic. Topics can include archetypal theory, individuation, shadow work, ecopsychology, ritual, and much more.
