Laural Virtues Wauters encourages us to be the creators of our reality by healing our personal and collective stories. She empowers us to explore our internal and external landscape by holding space for us to dive deep within our shadows and our truth to heal at the level of our multi-dimensional soul.

Laural is a graduate of The Four Winds school of energy medicine, founded by Dr. Alberto Villoldo. She gained further insights through the wisdom teachings of Ana Larramendi, Betsy Bergstrom, Sandra Ingerman and Andean Altomisayoq - Adolfo Ttito Condori, etc... Laural was honored to host Adolfo and Ana in her home for weeks of intensive mesa classes. Laural is a certified mandala facilitator who studied directly with the late Dr. Judith Cornell (Rajita Sivananda) at Mount Madonna in Watsonville, CA.
