What brings you alive?

What sits like a thorn in your heart?

What do you care about? What are you committed to?

How do you persevere in the face of great challenge?

How do you want to live your life going forward?

 

We all need to be seen and heard, to have our own wisdom reflected back to us and to have a witness to our struggle. I offer a safe space to reflect and get curious, a space where you can relax in your body, with your thoughts, your heart's longing and your spiritual calling. Together we can explore possibilities for living differently. Sometimes we will discover things that stand in our way and other times we recognize old ways of coping that no longer serve us. Many times we see that we are not the problematic people we have thought we were.

   

Contact me for a complimentary 20 minute telephone consultation to see if we are well suited to working together.

After you engage in a practice that enables you to radically alter your consciousness, you can gain a fresh perspective on your inner landscape. While these experiences can be of great benefit, it can also be very challenging to integrate the intense emotions, memories or insights that can be stirred up. Read more

Saying yes to the whole beautiful mess

This idea of acceptance has me wrapt. It is no small thing to accept the life I have: my past with all its pains, heartaches and mistakes; my present with all the worries and fears, risks and uncertainties of a career and home and family; my rapidly growing city with its few secure jobs, its […]

The Challenge of Acceptance

I have been thinking a lot about acceptance, about how difficult it is to do and about how the word simply does not reflect how challenging it is. One of my beloved teachers reminds me that we tend to think of acceptance as a passive process when in fact acceptance is a very active process, […]

Loving the Ordinary

In her 2010 TEDx talk Brene Brown says: “In this world, somehow, an ordinary life has become synonymous with a meaningless life and so often we are missing what is truly important because we are on the quest for the extraordinary.” How true! But what is it about the idea of having an ordinary life […]
