Workshops Offered 

Zoom Meetings

Hi! We are only meeting online right now, due to COVID-19. These Zoom meetings are just like the in-person meetings. We gather on Zoom, participants ask their questions of Hermaden, and Hermaden responds. Bring your questions, just as you would with an in-person meeting. Or you can just listen/observe!

If you have not used Zoom before, please download it to your device prior to the meeting -- just go to for the FREE download. You will need speakers to hear the meeting. If you don't have a camera and/or microphone on your computer/device, you can type your questions into the chat box.

Meetings last usually last 1 hour to ninety minutes  -- they may run over the hour length depending on the number of participants and questions. You don't have to be in a particular city to sign up for a meeting on Meetup -- come to any that interest you and fit your schedule! We've been fortunate to have small meetings since we can offer them more frequently on Zoom, so hope you can join us!

There is a suggested donation of $10 - $20 per Zoom meeting, but don't let cost deter you from coming. It's more important that you are there if you want to be! 

You can make a donation on Venmo (@GraehmeHall), on PayPal or Zelle ( or mail a check. Thanks! Your support is appreciated.

New Zoom Workshop: Spiritual Perspectives on Death, Dying and Grief

So many people are dealing with issues of death, dying, and grief right now, I am offering workshops specific to this theme. If there is enough interest, we might offer an online group to meet regularly. But for now, come with your questions specifically about these topics. The intention is to provide understanding, and help you move forward from where you are to where you want to be. It doesn't matter if you are dealing with a recent loss, one long ago, an anticipated transition, or if you simply want to understand death more. Death is part of our natural expansion. Understanding it from a spiritual perspective can only be beneficial and help to serve us. An hour long conversation with Hermaden.

Monday, May 10th
4 p.m. Pacific; 6 p.m. Central; 7 p.m. Eastern

Monday, June 14th
5 p.m. Pacific; 7 p.m. Central; 8 p.m. Eastern

New Zoom Workshop: Forgiveness

These workshops on forgiveness are intended to explore the concept of forgiveness more fully. They are also intended to empower you to forgive, if you want to – or help others to forgive. And it is intended to help you understand that by forgiving, you free and expand your own personal power. There is freedom, and power, in forgiveness. An hour long conversation with Hermaden. Bring your questions!

​Monday, May 24th
5 p.m.; 7 p.m. Central; 8 p.m. Eastern
