I, Stacey Joslin, live in Salida, Colorado and I am a licensed Avatar Master. The Avatar® Course is a self development course that helps people explore their consciousness, examine their belief systems and break through limitations so they can create the lives they truly want to live. The Course was developed by Harry Palmer in 1987 and is run by Star's Edge International. It is offered in 78 different countries and is delivered in 26 different languages. The home base in the US is Orlando, Florida. As an Avatar Master in Salida, I offer the beginning weekend of The Avatar® Course which is called ReSurfacing. This course helps people begin to take a good look at what might be holding them back from building a successful business, or from creating a harmonious family, or from inner peace and forward movement in life.
