We strive to live a life of purpose and meaning. We wish for fulfilling work, healthy relationships and a rich inner life. Along the way, life happens. There are detours, U-turns, and surprises. One way or another, we survive childhood and enter adulthood.
Eventually, we begin to suspect that there’s more to us than we know and we embark on a treasure hunt; in search of our self!
Not that we were ever lost – it just feels this way.
Who we are is always there, waiting to be rediscovered and claimed.
There are parts of the journey when self-doubt, uncertainty, unrealistic expectations, impatience, social pressure, and trying to be all things to all people render us motionless and overwhelmed. Still, we keep going.
Through life’s constant ups and downs, we’re allowed to get better at what makes life worth living.
We get to know and approve of ourselves.
We discover our inner goodness and develop healthy relationships.
We learn to go with the flow of our life.
We recognize that which is not serving us anymore and release it.
We eventually form a clear picture of what’s ahead and begin to create our new beginnings.
Hopefully, along the way, we also get to tend a garden –
look at the sunset with awe – be inspired – create – fall in love – be kind – laugh and cry without shame –
inspire change – and be at peace with ourselves.
COURSES & RETREATS
There are three elements that support our journey in times of uncertainty and change;
the willingness to pause and be present with whatever is going on – no matter how challenging it may be – the ability to extend loving kindness to ourselves, and the courage to let go of what does not serve our life anymore.
My goal is to provide you with the support and strategies you need as you’re trying to
find comfort, clarity, and purpose in the midst of change.
The following courses and retreats can be accessed by participants only.

To live a truly creative life, we always need to cast a critical look at where we presently are, attempting always to discern where we have become stagnant and where a new beginning might be ripening. There can be no growth if we do not remain open and vulnerable to what is new and different. I have never seen anyone take a risk for growth that was not rewarded a thousand times over.John O’Donohue – To Bless the Space Between Us
