Course Goal

To provide a dynamic community that supports your deepest aspirations for spiritual transformation, awakening, unlearning, and lessening suffering on the planet, both yours and others.

In a Circle of Trust, we will build off of the foundation laid in Educare classes and the enneagram, and take off from there.



This class is the most honest, pure, unvarnished gift I have ever received. Using the Enneagram as a foundational model, this course explore ways in which individuals can better themselves without taking a spiritual bypass around issues they are experiencing.

The entire program is designed to help us move spiritward, individually and collectively. Over the course of the two years, I found myself moving in a new direction and I could see and feel the progress. 

Sandy is the most authentic searcher and seeker I have ever encountered. His daily insights are a continuing marvel. His ability to discern what’s going on and gently guide people towards their higher Self is absolutely unique.

Finally, his willingness to be completely exposed in the interest of authentic communication is remarkable. Thank you for traveling the long and difficult road you have traveled to be able to do what you do.

Program Content

Each session will be tailored to the class and their needs and desires. Some of the areas we will likely explore in our Circle of Trust:

  • Living from a non-dual perspective which involves reliance on an interactive relationship with the Divine
  • How to get unstuck through befriending various parts of consciousness
  • Core wound identification and how to work through it
  • The Enneagram will be weaved in throughout the course as it is a practical  non-dual tool that helps us recognize the psychic patterns that limit us
  • Expanding and deepening work in alignment with Adyashanti
  • Meditation Practices–both guided and in silence with the group
  • Contemplation/Dictation (Listening to Grace)
  • Edge Dwelling—learning to allow and accept everything as it moves through you

The Educare Unlearning Institute has created a discounted sliding scale for all its offerings in an effort to keep our courses affordable to a wide range of people. We set forth no criteria and trust that each individual will pay what they feel is appropriate.

Fees may be paid up front, at or before each session, or monthly.

Discounted Sliding Scale:

$635—$885/Trimester (Six Trimesters over two years)

When you sign up for this program, you are committing to attending and paying for all six classes over the two years.  The fee includes the training and coaching calls, all course materials, continental breakfasts, and drinks and snacks throughout the day.

 Please do not pay when you register. Registering says you want to attend, and Sandy will send you some questions to respond to so we can have a conversation about the course.

Cancellation Policy: If you cancel more than one month before the first program date, any paid fee will be refunded, less a $50 processing fee. If you cancel two—four weeks from the program date, 50% of the first weekend program fee will be refunded unless your space is filled by another. In this case your full paid fee will be refunded, less a $50 processing fee.

If you cancel within two weeks of the first weekend program, the first weekend program fee is nonrefundable and non-transferable to another program, unless your space is filled by another.  In this case your full paid fee will be refunded, less a $50 processing fee.

If after the first session you decide the class is not a good fit for you, you will be excused without further obligation. If you need to miss a session during the two years, the fee is still due. If you drop out during the two years, the entire fee is still due.


Registering reserves you a spot, while we move together to the next step. Sandy will send you some questions to respond to. You will email him your responses, and then we will schedule a call to go over them, and answer any questions about the program.
