Novel Path offers classes, community celebrations, consultation services and retreats for people that would like to explore, learn, or focus on Ancient Healing Arts tools to help with life transitions, self discovery, or as a transitional service post-psychotherapy treatment to help with maintenance and integration. This is not a substitution for psychotherapy, but it is at the heart of the psychotherapy I practice

-Magick practices: Old, down-to-earth and natural

-Hermetic Principles (Especially Polarity & Gender within the body and mind).

-Using Archetype & Visual Symbolism in Cards  (including Oracle and Tarot)

-The Language of Astrology-systems to understanding self and purpose

-Energy Exploration & Ritual use

-Sensual Attunement & Movement

-Ancient Feminine Healing Arts

-Appreciation of Masculine Culture (with Masculine guest presenters)

-Pagan Celebration & Gatherings

-Retreats: Connecting with the Deepest of Femininity (Partnering with Sensual Muse LLC- coming soon!)

Instead of transcending ourselves, we must move into ourselves...


A life truly lived constantly burns away veils of illusion, burns away what is no longer relevant, gradually reveals our essence, until, at last, we are strong enough to stand in our naked truth.

Marion Woodman
