Phyllis walked us through all the steps of the Maypole
to connect with one’s own higher wisdom.

This call above is 1 hour long.

If you would like to thank Phyllis for this fabulous meditation make a donation to one of her foundations.

Foundations and the continuation of her work
There are two foundations in her memory.

One created by her family in memory of both her and her husband Sidney:
And one created by her students in Europe who were formally trained in her method and continue to practice and teach her method.

First interview with Phyllis
The original interview I did with Phyllis at her home in Zürich, Switzerland in early June 2012 is also available on this site.Access the recording here.
In this first call we discussed how she got started, tai chi, her diet and how she survived a hijacking experience over the North Sea….

Re Further calls:
Due to pollen and other allergies and the erratic quality of her voice, Phyllis decided that making a commitment to weekly calls was too stressful for her at age 98.
If you’d like to learn to use her figure of eight cutting ties technique read Phyllis’s books to learn to use this technique effectively. Or take a course from one of her certified instructors.
The system is very effective but you need to do the work and follow the method as she was given it.
Her Cutting Ties workbook as this gives the exact wording to use for cutting rituals or find a practitioner trained in her method.

This pack of 15 cards include all the symbols used in Phyllis’s work. They are very powerful visual tools. Search for them online.
