Consultation Services – Creating fresh space in our homes


Tiger – A one hour consultation exploring the ground. What does your home offer you, and how do you use it? What are the things about your home that you like and that you dislike? Where do you spend your time, and what places in your home do you avoid or ignore? The basic view will be non judgmental, looking at what you have and how you use it. Contentment

Lion – This is a two hour session that includes the Tiger approach, and then extends further. What can you do with what you have to transform, improve, or uplift your home? What will better support and nourish the sanity, dignity and joy of your life? What inspires you, and what will energize you further? The view here will have more to do with curiosity, exploring possible changes, adjustments and rearrangements to what you have already. Joy

Garuda – This is a half day session taking a leap into the possibility of entering fresh and new realms altogether. Renovating, remodeling, expanding out, additions of all kinds! You will need to have floor plans of your home, as it is now. This is not for the weak of heart. Fearlessness

Dragon – This is not a session, but rather the beginning of a journey. Are you are contemplating a complete change, a fresh start? Are you thinking about moving? Are you looking into buying land? Are you imagining building your dream home, and creating something completely new? You will be playing with all the elements, joining heaven and earth completely. The view here is to deepen, to develop further clarity and insight. Wisdom

Studio and Session Rates

Studio rate $120/hour (A 10% discount is offered to the Shambhala Community $108/hour)
Tiger: $108
Lion: $200
Garuda: $400 This will get you started. To do more will require a separate fee proposal.

Gianna Maureen Clark

September 19th, 2010 by

Dear family and friends:

We are so happy to let you know that Gianna Maureen Clark arrived Monday the 16th at 10:00 AM, weighing 6 1/2 pounds.

Her first name has significance for us on three levels – Gianna means “Jane” in Italian, and this name is a way to honor Gianna’s great-grandmother, Jane Regalbuto, while also honoring Gianna’s Italian heritage. Gianna is also the feminine form of John, which was Gianna’s late great-grandfather’s name. Her middle name is, of course, after her grandmother, Maureen Regalbuto, and is a way to honor her Irish roots as well!

Everyone is doing well.

Love to you all,

Colleen & Jay
