Heart-Mind Training for Contemporary Life
Sessions are offered by transparent generosity and take place via zoom.
I support people of all ages and backgrounds in finding ways to live with a sense of presence, connection, and wisdom. Our work together catalyzes your spiritual development and healing. It will increase your ability to navigate everything arising in your life: moment to moment, with a steady mind and whole heart.
People who work with me report:
Greater understanding of their minds, self-talk, and personality patterns
Increased understanding and implementation of compassionate self care
More spacious presence and freedom of choice
New ways to work with anger as a source of passion, not destruction
Objective reflection of themselves through our relationship
A richer, fuller experience of life.
As we deepen the capacity to remain present with whatever arises, we experience an inner peace that’s beyond blissful feelings. We find we are home everywhere, and awaken to freedom in this present moment, again and again and again. Slowly, this becomes a natural, ease-ful part of our lives.
An Integrative Approach
My teaching draws from tools and inspiration from many wisdom traditions, and is rooted in the Buddhist practices of Insight and Mindfulness Meditation. We begin with the foundations of mindfulness: noticing the breath, the body, thinking, and emotions. This systemic mind training centers us in present-moment awareness, allowing us to respond to life with greater freedom, wisdom, and love.
I will help you craft a personal, integrated plan. Since ultimately there’s no separation between contemplative exploration and daily life, your plan may include physical practice, creative expression, or study. Our work together includes:
Guided personal meditations and individualized weekly practice
Support in navigating difficult periods
Exploring how the psychological self expresses and interfaces with the universal
Goal planning, motivation, and feedback on your process and progress
Mind training and loving kindness cultivation
Exploration of your relationships as opportunities for growth and wisdom
Addressing all levels of your being, including the body.
Our entire session is a meditation, reflected in relationship. I guide you to notice your habitual ways of constructing self-identity — and how you can free yourself by loosening them.
