NANCY THIEF VOOGD
Nancy’s ability to deeply listen, hold stillness, and speak for the labyrinth creates a powerful experience for all those who walk her labyrinth or commission one on their land. She delights in sharing the triple spiral and is continually amazed as the labyrinth awakens people to what they most want to know and experience.
When Nancy discovered the triple spiral walking pattern in early 2011, she was already enjoying a decades-long singing career, was immersed in life coaching training, and parenting two teenagers with her beloved husband. Life was full to overflowing, and still it was as if everything was leading to this moment, revealing her devotion to walking and sharing this path.
You can find Nancy in her home in the Santa Cruz mountains with a bright yellow door welcoming visitors, a magical pond her husband built out front, the labyrinth beckoning from behind, and the smells of fresh food and live music wafting from the rafters.

Feng Shui Guru, Altar Designer and Elemental Photographer.
Linda has drawn her inspiration from incorporating the earth elements of Feng Shui into her Altar Boxes and Portable Altar displays. “Altars are such a personal expression, and true form of creative revelation. My intention has always been to transform found objects that speak to me and absorb them into my mobile altars”, says altar guru Linda Peters. This class is intended to integrate altar objects and deepen the experience of collecting them.
Spiritual growth is my passion and purpose fulfilled by communing, sharing and caring! By humbly asking to send the Diving Light of Love, it is graciously received in order to be a catalyst assisting others self realization and healing.
