Inside the portals resides all areas of human conflict and struggle as well as our key to freedom.

The Three Portals of Healing: Mother, Father, God, point us back toward our childhood and help us identify a core wound, of which all other wounds are but reflections.  Identifying this core wound supports us in understanding what our soul is here to transform and ultimately transcend.


Inside the portals resides all areas of human conflict and struggle as well as our key to freedom.  Focusing our attention on each one allow us to connect with the source of our pain, understand our biography and clear our emotional body by giving expression to  our hidden feelings. This is the process of healing, wherein we can restore our relationship with trust, with our inner guidance and with the greater understanding of who and what we are. 

The journey through each of the portals provides a space for the next stages of healing. The dance provides access to more subtle layers of awareness, below the mind, directly into the content of what needs to be felt and integrated.

The healing process continues until all that is left is love. Love towards your Mother, the feminine and women. Love towards your Father, the masculine and men. Love towards God, and the trust that all is perfect. 

If we are able to come to a place where there is nothing left but love, we are free.

“To be able to enjoy presence is one of the best things for a human soul in evolution to experience. Only in presence is one able to taste the nectar of bliss. However, in order to enjoy presence, it is necessary to heal the wounds from the past that are still acting in our systems distorting actual reality”

Sri Prem Baba

You will feel more harmony with your past, having taken a step towards healing your relationships and having freed yourself from the weight of your own history. There will be greater understanding for what has occurred in your life and its place in serving your souls journey. You will also feel closer to being able to look into the eyes of your mother, father and God with love and gratitude—and will feel gratitude for everything that has happened on your journey of life. And ultimately, you will come to discover why you are here and be able to put your gifts in the service of love.

“Through the three portals we find the very sacred space in the depth of our hearts that leads us to true freedom.”         Chensun Mills, USA

“Azul and Amara helped me reach inside my dance so I can continue to unravel the heart. Truly grateful, as are my generations past, present and future.”        Sally Bierman, Australia

“Nowhere else I have felt such a profound connection between my emotional, psyche and physical body. The process of healing and growing seams to have been accelerated by going deep into the body and embodying the truths. Deeply grateful.”          Ana Noble, Mexico
