Most often, the real cause of our suffering, no matter its form, is alienation from our true essence - and reconnecting with our deepest being is, in turn, the single-most powerful source of love, growth, and awakening.
The programs I offer emphasize this, while also honoring our physical, emotional, mental, and relational selves as the vehicles through which we experience life.
We are a wholeness, and every facet of us matters. We feel complete when every aspect of ourselves can show up, be seen, loved, and when ready, transformed.
Our connections to each other are one of our greatest gifts, thus my programs create a space in which participants can relax and be safe, close and real. As we ease our own barriers and defenses, we become better equipped to serve each other, as we release pain and disconnection, to find a deeper home in love. We naturally become happier, more radiant expressions of our real selves.
TYPES OF PROGRAMS
I offer programs in a range of formats, including short talks, weekend seminars, retreats, intensives several weeks long, and courses which span over a year. I work with individuals, small groups (6-8 people), and large groups in a variety of settings.
Because we are connected as the fabric of One Being, the longing of one person in a community often expresses the longing of all, sometimes with surprisingly profound resonance.
Please inquire if there is something especially timely or unique that calls to you and/or your community, which I may have the capacity to address together with you.
