What are the intensive weekends?

The intensive weekends are three things. First and foremost, it is a concentrated weekend of unique Clairvoyant topics to celebrate the end of our 6 month terms. Second, it is an opportunity for our out of town students to come to Portland and experience PPS and meet the in-person students and teachers! Finally, it serves as our twice a year graduation for the Training Programs. It's an opportunity to celebrate and acknowledge your classmates - and be celebrated and acknowledged! 

What is the schedule for the weekend? 

Friday: Class is at PPS from 7pm-9:30pm(ish). (School is open at 6pm, arrive by 6:30pm to get your space.) There will be lots of time to chat with each other, read with each other, and say hello! William is opening the evening and we will finish with Mystic Healings from the Spiritual Autonomy Healers. 

Saturday: We are at the Ace Hotel in Downtown Portland. 
There are Two Classes, 10am-12pm and 2pm-4:30pm. 
(The space is open at 9am, arrive by 9:30am to meditate and get your space)

Sunday: We are at the Ace Hotel in Downtown Portland. 
There is a class from 9:30am-12pm. (The space will be open at 9am - no need to get your space unless you want to, but please arrive and be ready to go right at 9:30am.)
Graduation Ceremony and Celebration: 1pm-2:30pm. 
There is a one hour break between class and the Graduation so you can grab a quick bite nearby, please do not bring food and snacks to the Ace Hotel, it is prohibited in our event contract.

If I'm traveling in, when and how should I arrive and leave? 

We recommend you arrive by late morning or early afternoon on Friday so you have a chance to get settled and then come over to the school to get your space before class. Sunday, you're welcome to leave anytime after 2:30pm! We do require you come for and stay for the entire weekend, as the experience is cumulative. Alaska is the most popular regional carrier but all the major airlines offer flights to PDX these days. Taxis to and from the airport to the NW Neighborhood are about $50-$55. Ubers and Lyfts are a little cheaper (in the $35 range). The Light Rail (MAX) is about $5 each way, but takes from 1-1.5 hours each way.

Where Should I Stay? Do I need a rental car?

These weekends are a lot of energy work! You're not going to have a lot of extra energy and bandwidth to manage coming to and from the school with a long commute. So while that airbnb 20 minutes away might be $20 cheaper a night; consider that you're not going to want to manage complicated commuting arrangements, and you'll still have to pay for either a rental car or a Lyft - you're going to want easy, close, and no-fuss. There are several great, local hotels, walking distance, at a variety of price points. I've listed some of them below. The June dates will be more expensive than the December as it is high travel season to Portland (and the weather is usually exceptional). Airbnb's are surprisingly hard to find in Portland because the city very closely regulates them. My advice is to spend extra on lodging to stay close. Lunch and dinner on Saturday are great times to socialize with the other students and there are a million great and reasonable restaurants near the school and downtown. Trust me, after 4+ hours of energy work and meditation, you're not going to want to go "home" to an airbnb by yourself and cook.  If you stay near the school, you shouldn't need a rental car (and the parking headache is not worth it.) Uber and Lyft are plentiful, and certainly in June the weather is great so you can mostly walk everywhere in the NW neighborhood (and downtown) in 20-30 minutes. 

How much does it cost? 

Your classes are included in your tuition. You should budget for hotel, food, air and ground transportation (The MAX line goes to the airport for less than $5 each way, but takes an hour). If you are unable to attend the weekend, audio recordings of the classes will be made available so you can listen on your own time since these are included in your 24 classes per semester.
