Working from the wisdom of multiple traditions: embodied meditation, somatic therapy, and mindful awareness ... you are empowered to navigate your own way of healing as you learn the skills to work with strong emotion and reactivity.  

 

It takes courage to look directly at truth, and also skill. Whether we are looking at ourselves, our life circumstances, or the earth, sometimes the truth is painful. When we develop the capacity to hold pain, we carve out the space that can also experience great joy. And over time what we see is that the pain moves through more quickly, and we spend more time in peace and contentment and joy. This is not pushing difficulty aside, but abiding with pain without becoming it ... able to hold pain and contentment simultaneously.  

This is essential for living in this crazy, changing, challenging, beautiful world.

 

 

 

I encourage everyone to maintain a personal practice to make the most of the work in individual meetings. For some this is sitting meditation, for some movement meditation such as yoga, tai chi, or qi gong, or walking. Whether you are beginning to develop, or looking for ways to deepen your own practice, I will support you in finding your way in, and meeting challenges that arise. All our work together translates directly to dealing skillfully with life and relationships.
