What happens at a House Party: It’s a fun, healing and uplifting experience. Everyone receives a private reading. Sessions are 15-20 minutes each and cost $45. (Please note, for travel out of state, sessions start at $55.) In addition to the messages from your angels, guides and loved ones in spirit, I will create an intuitive piece of art for each guest that will be matted and put in protective plastic to take home..
Benefits/Duties for the Host/Hostess: You’ll have a fun time gathering friends and family together, but it is a little work. As a thank you, the host receives a discounted or free session! Use it the day of the party or save it for later. The host is in charge of inviting and securing guests and assigning each guest a time, (one person every 20 minutes). If a deposit or travel fee is necessary you will need to take care of that (see below). The host must also provide me with a space for readings, including a table and 2 chairs and a little bit of privacy if possible. The host may want to provide some light snacks for the guests
Minimum Guests: (Based on driving distance one way from my home in Clifton)
* Within 30 minutes: 5 paid guests minimum - host receives 50% off their session, 6 or more paid guests - host is free!
* 30 min to 1 hour: 6 paid guest minimum, host receives 50% off their session, 8 or more paid guests - host is free!
* 1 hour to 1 ½ hours: 8 paid guest minimum, host is free with 8 guest minimum)
* 1 ½ hours and beyond: 10 paid guest minimum, host is free with 10 guest minimum)
Maximum Guests: Due to time, there is a 15 paid guest maximum (16 including the host)
Travel Fees: Please note, as much as I hate adding any extra fees, I do have a small travel fee for most parties. I think you'll find it reasonable. For travel over 1 hour (one way distance) $20; Over 2 hours (one way distance) $40. Travel fee over 3 hours begins at $50 and is determined on an individual basis. Travel fees are due at least 24 hours before the party (unless other arrangements have been made) and help cover the cost of gas, and time spent traveling. Some hosts pay for this themselves, others have guests split the costs by paying a couple dollars each.
Non Refundable Deposit (when and why): A non refundable deposit of $10 per guest is required for any party 1½ hours or more away. (Parties beyond 3 hours require a minimum 50% deposit) Why? Weekend party dates are in high demand, and many people book months in advance to secure a date. I must make special travel arrangements for parties of this distance (sometimes including a hotel room). For these reasons, I’ve found a small deposit helps to ensure the host and guests are serious about keeping their appointment. I’ve had parties cancelled last minute and have been out travel and hotel costs, but even worse, lost a party date that could have been filled by someone on my party wait list.
The deposit per guest is collected by the host. I suggest the host collect money about 2 weeks in advance so they can get it to me within 1 week of the date of the party. (Check or paypal, and please enclose a list of all guests in case a cancellation occurs. Deposits are credited to the cost of the guests’ session that day. (So for example, if it were a $10 deposit, they would only need to bring $35 that day.) If a guest does not keep their appointment that day, the deposit is forfeited unless prior arrangements have been made with me.
Cancellation Policy: Stuff happens, I get it! . If I need to cancel or reschedule the party at any time, I will reschedule the party or offer a full refund. If the host cancels the party 72 hours (3 days) prior to the event, all deposits will be refunded (or put towards a rescheduled party or private session). For cancellations made less than 72 hours: All deposits may only be put towards a future party or private session within 60 days or they will be forfeited.
Interested in hosting a 'gallery party'
or a party with regular (non art) private sessions?
A Party of Regular Private Sessions is $30 per person, and each person receives a 15 minute private session. Party size minimum depends on location and distance from me, and host is generally free. Travel fees may apply.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Gallery Parties vary in size (minimum size depends on location and distance from me). Gallery style readings are typically around 6-8 minutes each and start at $20 per person*. (Prices vary depending upon location and group size). The readings are not private, they are done in front of the group. I don't run a strict timer per reading, but schedule a time block for the party. Generally about 1 hour for up to 8 people; longer with more people. We can discuss what time frame makes the most sense for your group.
The host is generally free with a group of at least 8 people*.
*Minimum fee is $120 per 1 hour Gallery party, so if you have a small group, individual prices will need to be adjusted to meet the minimum fee. Travel fees may apply and may adjust the per person fee.
