Workshops & Courses

Aslan Training Institute offers both in person and online workshops and courses, which are designed to promote your mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical health and wellbeing. Our teachings focus on inner growth, self-awareness, and aim to bolster personal therapeutic work and professional development.


We offer a range of courses on topics such as re-parenting, attachment, boundaries, shame, trauma, and nutrition to help you better understand and heal yourself, and improve your relationship with yourself and others.

Come and discover your true nature, expand your awareness, and connect with others in a safe and supportive environment.

"If we wish to create peace, love and joy here on earth, then we must awaken and deepen to this within ourselves. Only then will it genuinely and authentically ripple out into the world spontaneously and without effort."

Challenging personal situations? Getting triggered by life? The two-hour Saturday Morning Forum is a great and safe group setting to find some keys and tools to unlocking our past to help our own growth and skillfully negotiate our future and our own evolution in consciousness.

Sacred Hymn Workshop

Up Next: March 2, 2024, 9:00am - 12:00 pm at Aslan ($100)

You are the word of Spirit, if you learn to listen deeply. But to develop this practice of inner listening first requires recognizing resistance and learning to surrender.

At the Sacred Hymn Workshop, Charisse Lyons and Lyndall Johnson will co-facilitate a time of learning, sharing, and practice with a focus on the inner seeing and listening required to know when to resist and not surrender, and when to meet resistance with surrender.

This is a workshop intended to open a pathway in life that sees clearly and listens internally, even when what is external is so confusing. Come experience the practice of Sacred Sound, and in this time of sharing expand your own practice of hearing and creating within the deepest parts of your being.

Join us for a morning of rich inner exploration as we learn to listen to what arises from deep within when we are connected to the deepest and most expansive experience of ourselves. All are welcome!

The Truth, Reconciliation and Forgiveness course was immensely helpful to me because it helped me see what I can do about the judgment and hatred in the world. I feel more hope in the midst of a planet at war with itself everywhere I look. And this hope comes from learning how to heal these things IN MYSELF.

I am deeply grateful for this class.
