Feeling Stuck? Most people do not believe they deserve to live the life of their dreams. Our culture teaches beliefs that are not about one’s value, but about one’s limitations. Let Heidi be the catalyst for you to discover and reconnect with the talents and passion you’ve always had but were too afraid to explore. Your best life is waiting for you!
One of Rev. Heidi's clients had this to say about her:
"In June of 2020, my book about a long-distance horseback trip I dreamed of taking since I was eight years old, The Big Quiet—One Woman’s Horseback Ride Home was published by Meadowlark Books, Emporia, Kansas. Publishing such a book was my other childhood dream. I now am shifting away from corporate writing to more of the writing I love, and I am working to find and market on my website products that are beautiful and can uplift my fellow human beings. I credit my work with Heidi Alfrey in helping me allow my dreams to come true. And my next dream and the next, as they unfold!”

Life Enhancing Classes
Most of our “life” instruction was about struggle, worry and doubt. We are not “broken” we are just “unskilled” with finding our way to joy. These life enhancement classes will not only awaken the creativity and passion of your life but will also empower you with life skills for a future of wisdom, love and clarity.
