North Kingstown, RI
In September of 2004 I graduated from(CMED), the Caroline Myss Education Institute in Chicago with a new Vision. A Vision that held the possibility of transforming and raising the consciousness of people who were struggling to find purpose in their life and to see the essence of who they truly were on a spiritual level. Guiding others in exploring their highest potential by discovering their Archetypes and finding their Sacred Contract has become my ‘Passion’. In 2007 I completed four weekend workshops on Entering the Castle which brought further clarity and refinement to the light and shadow side of ones archetypes and Sacred Contract.
Exploring your Sacred Contract is one way of discovering any repeated patterns that may be disrupting your life, your relationships or your career. Your Sacred Contract is the window for looking at any choices or fears that may be keeping you from moving forward with your dreams and aspirations.
I am a certified Spiritual Director/Guide and Reiki Master, Tong Ren practitioner and Magnified Teacher/Healer with training and experience in Bio-Spirituality (Focusing), Hospice Bereavement, Dream work and Journaling. My own Sacred Contract revealed to me, with laser clarity, that I was in fact fulfilling my life’s purpose when I chose to accept the challenge to study Sacred Contract work. Finding my own Sacred Contract has transformed my life in positive ways bringing a deeper sense of compassion and understanding for my fellow life travelers.

If you are young, in your 20’s, feeling lost and confused–jumping from job
to job, relationship to relationship, place to place–and are throwing up your hands in the midst of this crazed 21st century, your place in this world, the meaning of your life, like I was not so long ago, then gently, yet emphatically, I recommend that what you need is to be led back to yourself. And this is precisely what happened when I began work on my Sacred Contract with Joan. All I can say is that three months ago I began yet another job, decided not to go into the Peace Corps, which I had been slated to go into for November, had just come home from Colorado and Wyoming, after abandoning a writing project I had meant to start, after being told by the guy I was in love with that he didn’t want anything serious with me. What Joan did for me was miraculous, really, and every day I am grateful. She is a true artist in what she does, filling a much needed role in these alienating times–perhaps in years past she would have been a medicine woman; she is like a master weaver, taking disparate, seemingly unconnected parts of your Self, and weaving them together to show you the beautiful cloth that is inside of you, has always been inside of you. Now, all I can say, I is that I am experiencing something I haven’t felt in a long time, and this is joy. Joy because I am discovering more and more the gifts inside of me, and joy because I am empowered to take it into my own hands to cultivate and to more fully commit to who I am. Be forewarned, though: this is not for the faint of heart. Though it is a joyful journey back to the Self, it can also be a difficult one; though you feel empowered, you might be afraid of the potenital and blossoming of this, the power that is you. You now have a new responsibility to yourself. And your work with Joan does not end when you finish your Sacred Contract. It grows and grows within you, and you begin to have a sense of the aptness of lotus metaphor for the soul in Asiatic religions: a beautiful flower, blooming from the muck!

One might wonder why I, as a happily retired 65 year old woman with a successful daughter and son-in-law and an infant granddaughter, would be arduously excavating my past in an effort to meet and understand my personal Archetypes. I can tell you that, in my efforts to discover and further implement my Sacred Contract, (as Caroline Myss calls it in her book by the same name) I realized that I could not make further progress toward this goal, if I did not understand the Archetypal patterns which had been and still were underlying every one of my life choices and evasions. Happily, I was directed to Joan Maggiacomo’s name, as a Sacred Contracts consultant, on the Caroline Myss website. Joan’s discernment and empathetic intuition were amazingly accurate. Her expertise assisted me with the casting of my personal Archetypal wheel or chart. Through this process I have gained the insights towards making my next 65 years on this earth a less chaotic and passive journey, one more focused on being a productive instrument of the Divine’s healing grace.

I am always looking for guidance in my creative work while at the same time putting most of my energy into blocking it. I was mired in a bog of stuck contradictions when I contacted Joan to help me cast my Chart. Through this work I was able to decipher my Archetypes with an emphasis on their positive interpretations which was very empowering for me. Understanding my Sacred Contract is a rich and lifelong process. I have been given a vocabulary to move forward and a new paradigm for understanding my Archetypes and so, myself.
Amelie La Tourette, (Writer) Massachusetts
Discovering my Sacred Contract has helped me uncover the deeper aspects of myself which I didn’t always know were playing such an active role in my life. Discovering my Archetypes was like reuniting with old friends. Now that I am getting to know my archetypes within my Sacred Contract, I am learning to see these roles as assets in my life and not hindrances. I’m also continually inspired to reach my highest potential which for me, is the Artist.

Sacred Contract work has helped me to begin living consciously, with the personal choices I make in my life, and has illuminated for me my soul’s purpose and reason for being here. As I am becoming more familiar with my twelve archetypal companions, they reveal how to best live my life within my own personal power maintaining my self-worth and self-value. My Chart of Origin has also shown me the spiritual energy patterns (light and shadow aspects), in my life that have historically gotten me to where I am today. Sacred Contract work has clearly revealed to me the life lessons I am here to learn and ultimately acts as a Divine blueprint to help me avoid making the same mistakes tomorrow.
