Want to learn more about "what makes you tick", what your energetic blueprint/makeup is? Or perhaps you know the basics, but you want to learn "to read" charts, or to work with "moving energy" (transits and progressions) more effectively.

Whatever your desire and current level of knowledge, astrology is a wonderful language and method of learning "how you work yourself" deeply, and how to understand/partner with others (and with the universe!) more effectively.

I can teach you about your chart in a more academic sense (I have 20 years of tutoring/teaching experience!)--OR we can integrate astrology with healing, meditative and/or creative practices, to help you integrate your inherent archetypal expression in a deeper, more impactful way.

Karen is a meticulous teacher. She explains lessons in an accessible manner and gives you hands on experience under her direction. She takes time to ensure the student's understanding and proficiency before progressing. She is patient and kind. She was extremely flexible in scheduling our lessons. I learned to crochet and the basics of getting started, how to read patterns, supplies needed and much more. I love that I am now proficient at my new hobby thanks to such a wonderful teacher. Thank you Karen!
Beth
AWESOME I so enjoy working with Karen! In advance of today’s lesson, we coordinated re work on a summer shawl Project. We both thought a summer shawl addressing those summer air conditioned restaurants was a good project for folks like me that travel a bunch and need take along projects. With Karen’s guidance in mind, I bought gthe yarn. Then Karen showed me 6-9 different shawls she’s made so I could pick target shawl pattern that wasn’t above my ability and appealed to me. I’m now on my way; 3+Rows in and feeling confident of noteworthy progress til next session.
Beth
Encouraging, supportive, first class instructor. I signed up for lessons after I realized the kit I bought was above my knowledge level. It's been an awesome experience. I am more confident in reading instructions and making the (pattern specified) numerous different stitches. F2F lessons is the best; its been an awesome experience. I will take more lessons from Karen - she's just that good; a real gem for "take lessons".

I tried crocheting before but Lisa was able to help understand concepts and techniques that used to go over my head. 12/10 continuing lessons in the future.
Samia
Lisa was very patient and very thorough! When she saw that I was struggling with my double crochet, we started over and she taught me the proper way to do it. Her instructions were very clear and I was making a decent Granny Square (stitch pattern) after just one lesson.

"Donna is a great sewing teacher! She worked with my 11-year-old and was patient, clear, and engaging. Being 11, my daughter was underprepared, but Donna had a project lined up for her. Donna taught skills she hadn’t learned or mastered like zippers, buttons, ironing, and fabric choice.

I highly recommend Donna. And will be taking lessons from her myself!"

"I engaged Matt's service and knowledge to improve my game. I wanted to be able to compete and hold my own against players in the 1600 to 1900 range. Matt instilled in me that you have to have a mental toughness and you have to concentrate on every move if you want to play at a higher level. My game has stepped up. Recently I played a 2300 rated player...and though I lost a tough game, my opponent complimented me saying " you are good but you made a mid-game that cost you." I think with Matt's help I will avoid these mistakes in the future and my game will get even better."
