Workshop 2 – “Befriending Your Shadow”

“One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious” ~ Carl Jung.

Our Shadow is the keeper of all that we reject, repress and disown within ourselves, whether positive or negative. It’s what we often refuse to see in ourselves, but have no problem projecting onto others! Image you could face that which you fear inside yourself, learn to appreciate it as an aspect of your Wholeness, and through that, unlock new power, potential and goodness!

In this 3-hour workshop you will:

  • Explore one aspect of your Shadow through an ancient and compassionate Buddhist practice.
  • Develop a deeper understanding of the needs that underlie that aspect of yourself
  • Transform the energy into a powerful ally for your healing journey


Date/Time: Saturday January 13th, 1-4pm

Investment: $37 if paid before Wednesday, January 3rd.

$45 if paid after January 3rd, or at the door.

Workshop 3 – “The Journey Begins: A Re-birthing Group”

Our birth is one of the highest points of drama within our life. Some psychologists and mystics believe it’s the first place where many of our karmic and life patterns are activated, and that we will continue to repeat those patterns until we’ve processed the energy fully. In-utero and birth experiences can even be the current-life origin of limiting beliefs such as “I’m not good enough,” “I’m unlovable,” “I can’t do it,” and much more.

In this 2.5 hour workshop, you will experience a shamanic rebirthing through a guided drum journey and breath-work; and, capture your experience through a unique and simple piece of art to take home.

Clients who have experienced rebirthing report benefits such as:

  • Liberation from fear of living life
  • Profound feeling of connection and support
  • Getting “unstuck” in different aspects of their life and relationships
  • Greater empowerment, trust and motivation and much more


Date/Time: Saturday February 24th 1 – 3:30pm

Investment: $33 if paid before Thursday, February 15th

$40 if paid after February 15th, or at the door.

Workshop 4 – “Introduction to Shamanic Journeying”

Shamanic journeying is an ancient healing practice used, in one form or another, across cultures that span all the continents on Earth. Through these trance journeys, medicine men and women would connect to spirit guides, ancestors, and the energetic essence of plants, animals and elements in order to heal individuals, guide their villages to the best hunting grounds, and much more.

In these modern times, we are just as deeply in need of connection to those helpers from Spirit that can support and guide us. Come learn a powerful and effective tool for self-healing and intuitive development!

In this workshop, you will:

  • Learn the basic “map” of shamanic reality – Lower World, Middle World & Upper World.
  • Learn the skill of shamanic journeying to the sound of a drum in order to enter non-ordinary reality and gain access to your guides.
  • Be led on a Lower World shamanic journey to retrieve or connect with one of your animal spirit guides
  • Develop your intuition by learning to journey on behalf of another person for guidance on a specific issue


Date/Time: March 17th 1 – 3:30pm

Investment: $33 if paid before Wednesday, March 7th

$40 if paid after March 7th or at the door.

Workshop 5 – “Shamanic Soul Retrieval: Putting the Pieces Together”

Have you ever experienced something so stressful that it felt like you had to disconnect from a part of yourself just to get through it? Whether it’s trauma, an accident, heartbreak, or any other kind of physical, emotional, psychological, or spiritual distress, we are designed to protect ourselves so that we can survive, and go on. But often, this comes at a cost. Perhaps forgetting how to speak our truth, how to be truly open hearted in love, or how to trust others.

Shamanic soul retrieval is an ancient healing practice that enables us to reconnect to those parts of us that might have been shut down or severed during a traumatic experience. Reconnected to those parts, we gain access to the gifts they hold, and ultimately a greater sense of wholeness.

In this 2.5 hour workshop you will:

  • Retrieve at least one soul part that is ready to come back through a guided drum journey
  • Learn simple integration tools to reclaim the gifts of that part
  • Build resilience and empowerment through self-healing


*** It is highly recommended that you take Intro to Shamanic Journeying and/or have experience with shamanic journeying before taking this workshop ***

Date/Time: Saturday April 28th 1 – 3:30pm

Investment: $33 if paid before Wednesday, April 18th

$40 if paid after April 18th, or at the door.

Workshop 6 – “Accessing Authentic Power”

What does it mean to truly be powerful? What happens when we try to access and exert our power through our ego? How can we align with authentic, heart-centered and grounded power that supports us in getting our needs and desires met while living in integrity?

We’ll be exploring all of these questions and more.

In this 2.5 hour play-shop, where you will:

  • Take stock of the ways and places you habitually “leak” energy or move from a state of dis-empowerment
  • Learn simple and effective tools for re-alignment with and reclaiming your authentic power


Date/Time: Saturday May 26th 1 – 3:30pm

Investment: $33 if paid before Wednesday, May 16th

$40 if paid after May 16th, or at the door.

About the Presenter, Tess Meissner, CHT

Tess could never have guessed how she would ultimately use her degree in Literature/Writing from UCSD. A storyteller by nature, she is a true believer in the undeniable healing power of rewriting or completely shedding old personal stories that no longer serve, and stepping into the most mythical version of one’s self. Her background includes over 15 combined years of formal training and personal experience accessing states of trance and non-ordinary reality. One of her greatest passions is supporting seekers in connecting with their internal and transpersonal resources, as well as finding compassion and value in the parts of themselves they have previously rejected.

​​In her private practice, Tess dynamically combines​ hypnotherapy, shamanism, expressive arts, NLP, and Emotional Freedom Technique to support individuals and groups with Inner Child healing, Shadow work, integrative addiction solutions, ​trauma resolution, spiritual and intuitive development, stress management, and more.

Tess also ​volunteers as a group facilitator for women healing from trauma and multiple co-existing conditions at Shakti Rising’s Transformational Recovery program.

Special Workshop 


Compatibility Profiling


By: Tyson Kennedy

August 17th

There has been continued interest in Tyson’s presentation made at our Inspirational Happy Hour last month on Compatibility Profiling and the 7 Personality Types

Several requests have been made for some training on skill building on the topic.  As a result, Tyson is planning on coming to San Diego to teach a 3-hour intensive hands-on workshop to help you understand and learn more about the 7 Personality Types and how to profile them.

This 3-hour fun-filled workshop will be in a public place with lots of personality types to work from. When we “profile” in a busy public place, we are likely to find all 7 of the personality types all at once.  

Date:  August 17th, 2021
Time:  4:30 pm
Place: TBD, most likely at the UTC Mall (the more people, the better the study.)
Cost: $150.  3-hours of learningy.
RSVP: By August 13th. ($175 if you register after August 13th.)
Payment: Venmo (Tyson-McVety Kennedy) will be accepted, also checks and cash at time of workshop.
Contact: [email protected]


We are born into 7-personality types…not to be confused with our “imprinting” so craftily handed down by others, including our parents and teachers. Profiling with this technique is done by identifying physical characteristics, attitudes and careful observation of them.

By taking this workshop, you will obtain enough skills and walk away with an ability to profile at least 4 out of the seven energies of the personality types.

The emphasis of this training will be on the why and how to use profiling to better understand and acknowledge your own strengths and weaknesses in addition to understanding others, be it at work, family members, friends and relationships. 

Tyson offers these workshops in Denver once a year, twice a year at best; however, she will be providing a training just for us in San Diego. So be sure and sign up for $150 by August 13th. Anyone registering after August 13th will be charged $175 per person for the 3-hour workshop.  

Food and drinks are welcome. An open mind and a great attitude is mandatory. This will be fun!!!!

Tyson recommends getting the book “7 Personality Types” by Elizabeth Puttick to help in better understanding of the material. There will be additional material handed out that you can follow.
