“Barbara & Masen are generous and powerful teachers and guides. Their work is top notch, well organized, well thought out, presented masterfully, direct, healing, revealing, supportive, loving, compassionate, complete & life changing. They help their students to realize that it is they themselves who are doing the work!” Scott Carlson ~ Managing Partner

“Barbara & Masen are masters at guiding both the group as a whole and individuals through the tricky depths of an emotional morass. The honesty and courage they are able to extract from the participants is amazing”. C.W. / Attorney

Masen and Barbara have been married for over 27 years and leading workshops together since 1997. Their workshops are designed to inspire and motivate you to heal deep wounds, complete with your past, make new decisions in the present, and to live your life authentically with enthusiasm, passion and integrity.

The seminars provide effective tools for you to begin to ask the right questions and get a clear sense of what you need to do in order to feel empowered and able to create your life the way that you want it to be.

Barbara and Masen have devoted their lives to personal exploration and brought that commitment into their relationship and into their workshops.

They believe that it really is possible for you to maintain a high level of passion and excitement in your life.

With compassion, humor, love, and ruthless honesty, they provide a safe and clear environment for participants to heal, grow, and transform their lives through levels of authenticity that can be considered radical, outrageous, rebellious, and a true revolution of spirit.

She has been active in varied large group personal growth seminars as a participant, assistant, team leader, facilitator, supervisor and producer.

He has participated, assisted, and facilitated at numerous seminars, including such varied topics as empowered speaking, goal achievement, communication skills training, and emotional release work.

Masen is a Licensed Avatar Master and Wizard; The Avatar Course is delivered internationally and is designed to teach people to seek out and discover beliefs that do not serve them, and to then create the beliefs that do.

Masen brings his extensive experience as a teacher, mentor, and trainer to this work. He is committed to supporting people in working through their own blocks, in communicating through their blocks with others, and to supporting people in getting what they want in life.
