Expand into Greater Presence,
Passion and Purpose
Are you longing for a sacred community of sisters dedicated to cultivating and expressing the Divine Feminine? You are not alone. We are rising up around the world.
Though we live in different places and celebrate Her Spirit in different ways, we are woven together by a golden thread that transcends space and time.
We share a common desire to live as true embodiments of the sacred feminine. We aim to be Her heart and hands, and to share Her holy presence at this tender time on our planet.
As our world strives to come back into balance between the masculine and feminine, those hearing the call have an important role to play.
Each of us is being called to bring forth our feminine fullness — our unconditional love, our compassionate hearts, our intuitive gifts, and our shakti power. The world needs our creative life force, fierce truth-telling, and deepest listening.
We are also being asked to heal any remaining wounds and issues in our personal lives so that our souls may shine fully and we can stand in our transformative power as wayshowers, healers, and teachers.
As we open to becoming modern-day priestesses, we are able to navigate the stormy waters of our current world with more grace, love, and healing. In turn, we become vessels for a much larger evolutionary awakening of the feminine and healing of our culture.
Do you feel the call?
In ancient times, women seeking to expand their connection with the Divine and access their soul gifts attended “mystery schools.” These schools offered a transformative space and sacred technologies that could transmute the dross of everyday consciousness into alchemical gold. They offered an opportunity for birthing an awakened self that was more radiant and wise.
From the Isis temples of ancient Egypt to the Inanna temples of Sumer, and from Avalon to the Oracle at Delphi, women sought remembrance of their divinity and spiritual and practical skills that would enable them to step into their power. But eventually these lineages disappeared into the dark, one by one.
However, many of the teachings and practices remained in underground lineages that are now being carried on in The Feminine Soul Initiation, a modern mystery school with ancient roots that is adapted to meet the needs of modern women. This program is an approved “dedicated temple” of the 13 Moon Mystery School founded by Ariel Spilsbury, a renowned mystic of the sacred feminine. The 13 Moon lineage is rooted in her remembrance of the Avalon Mystery School.
The Feminine Soul Initiation connects you with the initiatory power of these ancient mysteries in a new way, one that doesn’t require you to travel great distances but instead takes you on a fully embodied journey with a virtual circle of sisters over the course of 7 months.
Opening to Your Depths and Expanding
You may wonder what a feminine mystery school can offer you....
It is a path to a deeper sense of meaning that flows into your life and our world.
It offers a rewiring of how you approach the path of spiritual growth, one that honors and celebrates the unique blessings of women.
It will teach you how to connect with a wider range of sacred energies so that you can engage life with passion and purpose, wisdom and joy.
Should you join us for The Feminine Soul Initiation, you’ll receive countless opportunities to heal your personal history — so you can feel radiant and fully alive. You’ll get in deeper touch with your creative spark, your sensuality and your truth.
From this empowered place, you can manifest a joyous, abundant life that is fully aligned with your soul mission.
Exploring the Feminine Archetypes
The Feminine Soul Initiation is an initiatory journey into the heart of 13 archetypes of the sacred feminine that allows you to consciously evolve your psyche and soul.
If you aren’t familiar with archetypes, they can be thought of as patterns of behavior that explain who you are, how you see the world, and how you engage with it.
A few well-known examples of archetypes include the Mother, the Queen and the Wild Woman.
These archetypes live inside you (and through you) but many of them may be dormant or suppressed due to millennia of masculine dominance. Knowing which archetypes are strong in you and which are still wanting to blossom can help you to better understand yourself and others.
Each archetype is a source of blessing and power. When you open to the full spectrum of archetypal energies, your life turns ON in a beautiful way.
In this program, you’ll find a sacred container in which ALL of you can be reignited and fully embodied.
The result is the birth of a more soul-connected, radiantly empowered You.
If you choose to enter into the mysteries through this program, you are saying YES to an acceleration on your soul path. You can expect to become a more multidimensional being — comfortable in your wise depths, at home in your wildness and willing to share your gifts.
As you stand in your full feminine power, it radiates into your outer world in magical and mysterious ways.
Through this program, we’ve been witness to hundreds of women accessing deeper intuitions and memories and resurrecting buried aspects of the sacred feminine.
Others have been freed from deep unhealed patterns — abandonment, trauma, addictions and a sense of unworthiness.
Many have found courage to finally pursue their deepest dreams and experienced great success doing so.
We’ve also witnessed the healing of family relationships and intimate partnerships. Some participants, once clear of their most damaging relational history, have called in the Beloved they’d always hoped would appear.
Others have tapped a deep spirit of service and their desire to be a healing vessel for people around the world. It’s a different, yet equally transformative experience for each participant because WE are all so different.
The truth is that no matter what our life history or where our path has taken us, we ALL need support as we shed old skin, expand our vision of what’s possible and birth the next level of our being. Yet in our fragmented society, we typically lack this deep support.
Or perhaps we haven’t been taught how to step into our full power as women. So we end up becoming the biggest obstacles to our own evolution.
There is great power in standing with sisters who know or intuit something deeper about you, who can see you in your magnificence and also support you to move through your shadow patterns.
We KNOW you are here to offer your deepest gifts and make a unique contribution to the planet.
We KNOW you can learn to release old patterns and beliefs that have served as survival mechanisms, so that something greater can be born.
And we KNOW we can support you to move through an initiatory gateway and toward a greater-than-imagined future.
We will hold that with you and for you, as we’ve done for so many others.
Give Your Deepest Soul Gifts
The Feminine Soul Initiation offers the support, practices and sacred tools you need to become the amazing being you were born to be.
So how do you bring your soul gifts to the world with grace and balance? And how can you offer yourself in true service to the planet, providing healing and love to some of the darkest corners of the Earth?
Answering these questions is no easy task.
However, as we learn to integrate the feminine lineages of the past and reignite the fires of Avalon, Dendara, Delphi, Egypt, the Maya and many other mystery schools, the missing sacred thread begins to reweave in our souls and psyches...
...And we can remember why we are truly here in this lifetime.
Yet, remembering is only one piece of the puzzle. The call for women today is to stay connected to this ancient wisdom, while also evolving our consciousness and methods to match our current-day realities.
The Feminine Soul Initiation is such a pathway. Through this 7-month certification program, you’ll embark on a transformative journey that will enable you to deepen your soulful presence, expand your vision of what’s possible, and move into action on your soul’s work.
You will reconnect with the Earth, your body and the very essence of life. Rather than feeling isolated and alone, you will be welcomed into a global sisterhood that will be there to celebrate your joys and hold you through your darkest hours.
You will gain confidence and strength to follow your heart and express your truth. As a result, you will make a real difference on our planet — and have a life that you love.
You Don’t Have to Do it Alone...
We are not designed to give birth alone. So it’s our honor and delight to be with you in this program, so that you can be held, guided and nurtured as you bring new life into being.
Awake, Embodied Women Are Needed to Shift Our World
Our planet and humanity as a whole have never been more in need of skilled and capable soul-filled women who can help turn things around.
So we invite you to expand beyond the confines of what you think is possible and stand in the truth of YOUR MAGNIFICENCE. We are calling you to take outrageous actions in your life, so you can help midwife the planetary shifts needed and manifest your greatest visions for your life and our world.
Enter the sacred circle with us and we will help you invoke and create a life aligned with who you really are and what you are really here to do!

What recent graduates say about the Soulful Women Certificate Program:
I am in a deep state of gratitude for my experience with the Soulful Women’s Program. Little did I know that that momentous decision would lead to the growth, the healing and the expansion that I feel in my soul and my being now. I can never repay Devaa for helping me to bring forth the remembrance, the witnessing, the support and the love which has led me to this moment.
Through this certificate program, I was able to heal and move lifelong pain and trauma out of my body, so my body now feels tangibly different! The power of the archetypes and this work is profound.
I love that Devaa is is fully in her power as a facilitator. She is also down-to-earth, honest and authentic. She embodies a cauldron of deep safety and also utter sacredness. She has the capacity in one moment to be very very tender, and in the next moment cut through to the chase — inviting you to go deeper, move forward, and find what you are searching for.
Of all the programs out there — and I’ve participated in a lot of them — this one takes it to the core. If you are interested in going for true depth of soul development, then this is the program for you. To me, there is no amount of money that I could pay that would be too much, given all I received from this program. It has made a profound difference in my life.
— Patricia Benavidez, Elementary School Teacher
I have always been a great doer — keeping busy, over-exerting myself, and then burning out. But, I finally got to the point where I wanted something different. I was tired of doing things this way and put a call out to the Universe for help.
This program was the answer to my prayers. The healing and shifts that have happened for me through my work with Devaa have been life transforming. She created a loving container where I allowed myself to be vulnerable, to be pushed out of my comfort zone, and to share things I normally wouldn’t have. I have been in women’s circles before, but never in such an intense setting with such focused work.
The weekly calls with Devaa continue to be very empowering. It’s so wonderful to tune in and allow myself to be guided through the journey of the call — and then begin to see things unfold in my life. It’s clear that Devaa has a deep understanding of what she teaches through her own inner work and transformation. Her energy and voice are so grounding and her skills in coaching are clear in each call.
I also have also done two live retreats with Devaa, and I felt so loved and held that I was able to open up to some profound healing of past wounds — related to my family of origin and being raised in England, where expressing one’s deep feelings is not the cultural norm (at least not in my experience). I became aware of things that had been buried deep, and I learned what it means to fully embrace myself as a divine feminine being.
— Charlie Wilson, Founder of Date and Thyme Cafe and 21 Days to Help Yourself
Before I started the Soulful Women Certificate Program, I really wanted to step into my leadership and my power. I felt a huge calling in my heart that I could not ignore. I knew had to do something MORE with my life — which was not really working the way I was living it. Through this program, I was able to become the woman I always knew I was born to be. Things started very quickly falling into place in my life. For example, I lovingly ended a relationship that was no longer serving me. My new job became completely solid, and now I am the Vice President, managing a million-dollar business (which is still amazing to me!). I am part of an amazing new community of sisters, and the list goes on...
My life has taken a complete 180-degree turn for the better. And I know that I could not have done it without Devaa’s support. She is a truly amazing facilitator! The connections and relationships that I’ve made with the other women in the program are priceless. The learning, growth and development that I’ve experienced are more than priceless. What I’ve seen happen with other women in the program is nothing short of a miracle. I absolutely recommend this program!
— Kim Carpenter, VP of Operations and Head Marketing Trainer
My life is completely transformed in every way. I have a real inner confidence now in who I am, why I’m here, and what I’m here to do. I moved through all the shame I’ve been holding over the years of actually not wanting to fully show up; and something much brighter and lighter and more sparkling has shown up.
And of course because of that, my whole life — all my relationships including the ones closest to me, with my husband and my daughter — are changing. They’re very tender and beautiful and loving, and they’ve been quite tense for the last few years. So it has gone from that to every area of my life, really.
— Melanie Eclare, Photographer, Priestess and Loving Mother
I’m emerging from this program with exactly what I needed — a feeling of wholeness I didn’t even know I was seeking. If you had asked me two years ago if I’d be happy with my work, I would have told you that you were crazy because I was so confused. But with the help of this program, I kept listening to the clues and staying in my heart, and then taking action that was coming from my intuition, my inner wisdom — rather than taking action that was just being directed by fear and directed by my head. And now I have a business that I love, where I’m using my business skills to help creative women bring their gift to the world...and I love what I do.
So there was this huge transformation in my work, and then also in my marriage. We’re now in marital therapy, and I thought we were going to end things. But through the process of this program, and staying in my heart but also staying in my power, I’ve ended up in a much better place in my marriage as well.
– Leela Somaya, Business Entrepreneur and Coach
As a facilitator Devaa is a wonderful combination of the right and left brain. She wove us all together in a loving, playful open container, where we were deeply held. I was always searching for a feeling of belonging. My parents are no longer alive, and I have no siblings. So this feeling of "home" was quite elusive. The program with Devaa created lifelong deep connections. I feel known, seen and held in a way that exceeds anything I have ever experienced. Having this level of unconditional support opened me to my dream in life to be a fashion designer, and my choice to move forward with it.
– Rana Stewart, Fashion Designer and Entertainer
I am a complete newcomer to this archetypal approach to understanding the world and myself, so I deeply valued Devaa’s consistent presence and holding. She made space for all the blocks and fears that inevitably arose, providing pertinent insights that helped me to transform.
I’ve also experienced the value of being in a sisterhood that consciously taps into deeper aspects of themselves. I learned to shine the light on my shadow aspects, bringing depth into my otherwise more mainstream. The compassion that I have learnt to cultivate for myself is a huge a blessing in itself. It has helped round edges and to soothe strained relationships.

As I graduate from this program, I feel more grounded within and confident of listening to the quieter aspects of myself for guidance. I truly recommend this journey for all those willing to dive within for a much more fulfilling “Earthwalk.
– Nomita Khatri, Goa, India
This course was a catalyst for healing that I only imagined was possible for me. For the first time I got to see the wide range of qualities that we as women possess and they are all feminine. I experienced greater self-acceptance, self-forgiveness than ever before which has translated to greater other-acceptance and other-forgiveness. Devaa is an amazingly beautiful soul and witnessing her presence was worth every penny that I invested in this program.
– Elisabeth Jordyn, Winter Garden, FL
What You Will Experience
Course sessions are on Wednesdays at 5:00pm US Pacific.
We are excited to bring you a 7-month program that takes you into the deep inner work you need to affect positive change in the world and enjoy a fulfilling and prosperous life.
This path is NOT a formulaic, one-size-fits-all approach to spirituality. You will open and expand in unique ways that are tailor-made for your current level of evolution.
Some women go on to create more financial abundance while others experience profound healing or improved well-being. Most deepen their relationships and create more intimacy in their lives. Others step into their calling and begin living from a more sacred place.
Your soul will show you the way...if you let it.
Transforming Your Inner World
One of the core principles of this program is that deeper inner work empowers women to realize their full potential. Our gateway is through archetypes — universal, cross-cultural patterns of energy and potential that represent different aspects of the Divine Feminine.
On this journey, you’ll go through 13 different archetypal initiations — one for each archetype — and learn how to access their unique qualities, blessings and powers, expanding your sense of freedom and wholeness (see details below).

What Devaa’s Graduates Are Saying:
It was great to come together with a like-minded group of individuals and talk about what it means to be inspiring women in our own lives and as we influence and participate in the lives of others. The global participation added a great dynamic and allowed us to get to know people from all over the world. The content was great, and the discussions and journey together were very helpful and inspirational. It has helped me to put more conscious thought into creating women-centric spaces in my community. I would definitely recommend it to a friend!
– Hannah Coker, Atlanta, GA
It was just awesome! For 4 years I had been trying to cope with tremendous sadness from the loss of my daughter, she had pancreatic cancer, so I was with her for 10 months from date of diagnosis to her passing. After her death it was really hard getting back to life, to living and taking care of myself. I grasped at anything that my friends and family thought would help me and in my heart I knew I needed something more. So one day I got an email from The Shift Network for a free seminar, I just loved Devaa Mitchell’s voice and signed up after. This course gave me the tools and the courage to do just that. Now I live an inspiring life. I have a dream and now I have the courage to see my dream come to fruition.
– Barbara, Mississauga, ON, Canada
With Devaa’s guidance and with the support of this community of women, I was able to find that compassionate heart space that I have neglected for far too long. My heart is learning to open up in ways I never thought possible. The live sessions and breakout groups were invaluable.
– Janet Scott, Murrieta, CA
Really well designed for women and full of beneficial insights, both on spiritual and everyday practical levels. Deva’s gentleness and such a warm acceptance of each participant is very soothing and healing. I feel grateful to her for sharing this energy.
– Elma, Lausanne, Switzerland
It was good to add a feminine aspect to my life which has mainly been lived in more male-oriented environments.
– Margaret, Isle of Man

How Can I Participate?
The Feminine Soul Initiation has two levels of participation and certification.
The Pearl Program is for women who are ready to step out of your “ordinary” day-to-day life into a much bigger possibility for you who are, and what you are here to do.
The Diamond Mentorship Program is designed for women who are already successful in their own right, but who know there is something deeper that wants to unfold. You will receive substantial personalized attention, with one-on-one coaching for your soul’s unfolding, as well as your work in the world. This level of participation is by application only, as it in high demand and is only appropriate for spiritually mature sisters.
As someone interested in the Pearl Program, you have been on a spiritual path, and now you are ready to go much deeper. You know you want to make a big contribution and find meaning, but perhaps you feel disconnected from your true purpose and don’t know what steps to take. You are someone who wants to make a living that is aligned with your core passions, but you are not there yet. You sense you are a leader, but you don’t yet have a lot of experience in leadership positions.
The Pearl Program offers a pathway to step into a much bigger possibility for who are, and what you are called to do. You will spend seven months deepening your lived experience of the divine feminine, and bringing it forward in the world. You will have time and a structure to clarify your creative vision and align it with your passion. You’ll also learn how to bring it into manifestation, so you can be financially rewarded for living your purpose. And you’ll do this in a community of amazing women who are ready to “go the distance” with you.

The Diamond Mentorship Program is designed for inspiring women who are already thriving in their own right, but who know there is something deeper that is still waiting to unfold. Though you have done quite a lot of transformational work already, you know there are still levels of your being and psyche that are ready to be shed — in service to your deeper awakening.
You are ripe for our Diamond Mentorship Program if you are someone who has been on a spiritual path for a while, and you are already navigating your life with spiritual depth and maturity. You are bold and willing to move beyond your comfort zone. But you are yearning to reach even deeper into your soul, and extend your impact into the world.
In fact, you are yearning for an Initiation that will hold you deeply accountable to show up at this next level of your being, birthing your visions in service to the greater good. You are called to stretch beyond your current paradigm, to deepen your own archetypal and mythic presence on the planet. And you know that now is the time for you to step up and respond to the call that lives deep within your belly — in service to your passionate purpose.
The Diamond Mentorship Program provides a structure to uncompromisingly hold you to your deepest vision and inner knowing. You will be surrounded by other women — both in person and on the phone – who will support you to be a woman of soulful action and purpose.
You Will Be Personally Mentored in the
We know that it takes an in-depth and personalized program to initiate you into true spiritual depth and presence. And for this reason, we have developed the Diamond Level. Devaa will be partnering with you and sharing her gifts in full service to your transformation. She will personally mentor you with sacred witnessing and accountability, as you take the risks to leap beyond what you’ve imagined possible.
Devaa will provide a profound, ongoing sacred circle where you will be called into your larger-than-life “archetypal” Self, and catalyzed into action from this place. You will also have unparalleled access to her with one-on-one mentorship throughout the 7-month program.
Diamond level participants will also be invited to two exclusive 6-day retreats, where we will take the initiatory work to another level. It is here that we will meet eye to eye and heart to heart, creating a space for powerful sacred ritual, deep soul sharing, hands-on healing, and full embodiment of each archetype of the feminine. Our shared soul work is exponentially more powerful when we are physically together, co-creating a hugely expanded field where quantum shifts are possible. So the live retreats are an essential component of this program, and the retreat fees are included in your program fee (however, food and lodging are not included).
These retreats happen at a very lovely intimate retreat space in Northern California (nearest airports are San Francisco and Oakland).
In addition, each week you will receive individual support and guidance to integrate these soul teachings with practical leadership and life skills — all to prepare you to step in more fully a Soulful Woman of the Shift.
The Diamond Mentorship Program accepts only a small number of participants to increase intimacy and impact. In the past the program has sold out, so the spots are in high demand and by application only.

– Barbara Marx Hubbard
I’ve met a lot of teachers, healers and leaders in my years on the speaking circuit. When I wanted to dive deeper with my work and share from a new level of vulnerability, I turned to Devaa. She helped me lead from my authenticity, connect with my depth, and open in ways that proved energizing and effective. Her support enabled me to go to a whole new level in my public presentation and bring new qualities to my leadership. She helped me in a million ways that I cannot even describe. I am blessed by her presence. Thank you Devaa!
– Marci Shimoff, Bestselling author of Chicken Soup for the Woman’s Soul
The time (or should I say timelessness) that I spent with Devaa was profound. We released and healed major patterns that were stuck for me. After years of seeing all kinds of “experts” I can honestly say that the time I spent with Devaa broke something loose and now I feel burden-free, as well as much lighter and more joyful. I recommend her work to anyone who is ready to fly.
– Marcia Wieder, CEO and Founder Dream University®
I have had the pleasure of working with Devaa as a coach and mentor for a year. Devaa brings a grounded, authentic presence to each session, and is able to drop deep into what is real. She is gentle enough to create a nurturing, safe space, and bold enough to cut through the extraneous and say what needs to be said to evoke change. Devaa is an evolutionary change agent and an exemplar who brings her whole self to supporting her clients to bring their fullest, most radiant selves to the world.
– Lissin LevChaya, Co-Director and Performer of Earthcapades; Officiant
Devaa could be called a spiritual midwife, assisting people in the birthing their inner-selves. She empowers you, assists you, gently encourages you and honors you for your efforts. With Devaa’s impeccable assistance, I was able to timely go through what is so far the most powerful and mysterious spiritual experience of my life. I am extremely grateful!
– Nathalie Daneau, Intuitive Coach and Counselor
Devaa’s extraordinary depth of presence creates a supportive and sacred space for exploring one’s spiritual path. My work with Devaa helped me connect to Spirit in deep and profound ways, and beautifully supported my personal evolution.

The Ordination Path of 13 Moon Mystery School (For those who are interested)
This journey to ordination, becoming an official priestess of the 13 Moon lineage, is different for each being who steps on this path. Ultimately, if you choose to move towards ordination, you are committing yourself to walk as a vessel of Divine Love. Everyone else around you will be able to palpably feel it because you will have worked through the deep alchemical processes of clearing the wounding, reactions, and shadow patterns that might have previously obscured that Divine Love being felt through you. There are many specific ways to access this frequency. However, every single person has different gifts to bring forward as an ordained 13 Moon Priestess.
Ordination is not a lightweight commitment with a rubber-stamp completion. It is an pathway without rigid linear rules and regulations that you can check off a list. We try to offer a general direction toward the goal of ordination. But in the end, it comes down to your ability to live as an alchemist, transforming the dross and challenges of life to alchemical gold by pouring forth your love.
Steps Of Ordination Within the 13 Moon Lineage
(Please note that completing these steps does not guarantee ordination.)
Gateway 1: Enter the Temple
The journey of remembrance and awakening leads you to enter into 13 temples (archetypes) of the Divine Feminine. At this level, you begin your remembrance by discovering which archetypes are most resonant with you at this time in your life.
Gateway 2: Awaken the Temple
At this step, you begin to awaken your remembrance of your priestess tools and gifts. This may be done, for example, by sitting with a series of different meditations that awaken the Goddess within you. You may become more connected with your gifts of your inner sight, your abilities as a healer, and your heart wisdom.
Gateway 3: Embody the Temple
Here you begin consciously embodying the 13 archetypes within your everyday life, while embracing their challenges and gifts. You will be supported by our larger sisterhood through our monthly community virtual gathering, known as the Feminine Soul Circle.
Gateway 4: Enter the Mystery
When you choose to enroll in the Feminine Soul Initiation, you are entering into Gateway 4 of the Ordination Path. In this level, you are considered an “Initiate” of the mystery school. You enter into full initiation in each temple of the 13 faces of the Divine Feminine. You are part of a bonded alchemical container held by a 13 Moon “Focalizer” (in this case, Devaa Haley Mitchell), and you are devoted to going the distance and fulfilling what is required at this level.
To complete this gateway, you must also attend the two primary archetypal retreats offered at the Diamond Level or otherwise. In doing so, you will have experienced a living transmission of each archetype.
Gateway 5: Devotion to the Temple
At this gateway, you step into being an “Initiate in Devotion.” You will have already gone through a full cycle of the 13 Moon™ Mystery School including the two live retreats. At this gate, you can apply to enter into a circle as an Initiate in Devotion (we previously called this a “Senior Priestess.”) Here, you offer yourself in selfless service to the Divine One, the circle, the sisters and brothers, and the focalizer. This means you may support the functioning of the temple in many ways, including building altars and maintaining the beauty of our temple space, helping to hold the energy of the group and the field, offering archetypal transmissions, and other activities.
Gateway 6: Becoming the Temple
At this gate you step into Full Ordination as a 13 Moon Priestess or Priest. Initiates complete their alchemical initiatory challenges that have been presented to them by their mentors. An initiate is held in one-on-one mentorship as she completes these challenges. Please note that this process requires tangible focus and concrete change, so it often takes a period of time to move through it. These archetypal challenges can be explored simultaneously while you are an Initiate in Devotion at Gateway 5.
When the mentors feel the challenges have been met, and if there is alignment on all sides, then you may be invited to do a final personal initiation with one of the Lineage Holders of the 13 Moon™ Mystery School. After completion, you are then ordained as a 13 Moon Priestess or Priest.

Q: What is a virtual course?
A: It’s a great way to engage live teachings and each other from the comfort of your home! All you need is a phone line (or an equivalent voice service). If there is more than one person in your household taking the course, you will each need your own line. We use MaestroConference for audio conferencing and Zoom for video conferencing to make it just like an in-person event, where you can ask questions, participate in groups, and deepen your exploration of the course themes.
Please note that dialing MaestroConference from your phone is a regular toll call to California, and your telephone service provider will charge you according to your existing long-distance calling plan. You can also use Skype credit/subscription or Google Voice to dial in to MaestroConference, and you’ll need to use your virtual keypad to enter your PIN and to indicate that you want to ask a question. Other options include calling cards and discount long-distance carriers, and we also have a webcast which is free to use from anywhere in the world.
Comment From a Course Participant
I have never participated before in an online course. The packaging, presentation, inclusion and Facebook postings created a wonderful, safe cocoon to participate.

The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.
