"First, thanks for sharing the approach behind how your journeys are shaped. I’m one of those members of the tuath who is completely mindblank, and about a year into somewhere between every other day (in a rough patch) to multiple times per day, I will absolutely take the stand on these being worth it whether one can see/hear/taste/smell/touch or whatever. Most times, it’s “just” a break from the nastiness that is the mundane world (that alone is worth it to be sure); occasionally I get a deep relax and come out with some new ideas or perspectives; a small handful of times I have enjoyed very potent, impactful spiritual experiences that left me with things to stew over for weeks, if not months later (one I had early on still plucks at my thoughts randomly nearly a year later). The practice is so worth it, despite the constant frustration of “dammit! I wanna see the damned beach!” Thanks so much for the work and care you put into these, Lora!"

"The Journey’s program was an amazing experience that not only helped me to relax and center myself. It helped to deepen my practice spiritually using Lora’s technique on the 'Beach'. I learned many things about myself with each journey and felt that I was building on each experience. I highly recommend it!"

Frequently Asked Questions
I have found your journeys to be so much better than any that I have been offered. I love how you get everyone started - especially the beach! I am very much into liminal time and space and the beach, being an edge, certainly is liminal space. I believe that most anyone, after doing a few of these, will be well on their way to independent journies of their own.
