The practice of being present right here, right now.
I didn't start meditating because I thought it was a nice idea - I started meditating because I felt like I was always moving at the speed of light and I didn't know how to stop. I fell in love with the practice of mindfulness and before long, I was teaching people at the nonprofit where I worked.
If you're an individual looking for a safe place to explore and deepen your practice, let's talk. Meditation mentoring is one of my favorite places to grow with others.
Mindfulness has been key in my recovery from substance abuse. If you are looking for a pathway to love life again in your recovery, or interested in exploring your relationship to drugs/alcohol/food/sugar, I would be honored to work with you.
If you're with a group, organization, or school, I now lead self-care and meditation workshops. I've taught in residential retreat settings, at one-time gatherings, conferences, workshops, and led ongoing classes.
We'll do grounding exercises and use ritual to come into a shared space. Using trauma-informed practices, I will guide you into becoming present in an embodied way and so that you may discover the "hidden wholeness" within (thank you Parker Palmer for those words!).
