Welcome to your new EverAfter

Welcome to a world of enchantment and discovery.

My name is Bethany Ward and I am a Spiritual Director, Evidential Medium, educator, and published author. 'A New EverAfter' is the most complete expression of this work.

'A New EverAfter' believes that true and lasting transformation occurs within the interplay of wisdom and wonder. It is housed within a life-enriching gathering place focused on personal development, self-discovery, and an uplifting shopping experience.

Here, you are encouraged to engage with the art and practice of one-on-one Spiritual Direction while simultaneously pausing to shop for inspirational items. You are also invited to gather with others within engaging classes and events, participate in online programming, and to directly experience the numerous benefits of intentional living.

'A New EverAfter' sees your life journey as a sacred story. My desire is to help you enrich, reframe, and celebrate that narrative. No matter how you choose to explore your story, together we will examine a new type of EverAfter, one that exalts the process and not the destination. This EverAfter is not about a perception of a happy ending but about redefining your present and rediscovering who you truly are; mindfully, holistically, and practically.
