Supporting individuals and organizations to live their full creative potential through coaching and contemplative practices.

I deeply recognize the essential value of living from a space of care, connection and mindfulness. This underlies the work that I do and my commitment to support others who are looking to live their lives more fully aligned with a sense of purpose. Through coaching, mindfulness and self-compassion, OpenSpace Mindfulness helps bring creative potential to life while fostering individual and organizational wellbeing.

If you’d like to learn more about any of my offerings please write me. I would love to discuss ways that I can support you or your organization.

In appreciation,

Ashley Dahl, MSW, CMT-P / Contemplative Guide, Coach and Educator

Romjul - Seasonal Rest And Replenishment

Romjul - Seasonal Rest and Replenishment

Romjul (Norwegian) is the period between Christmas and New Year’s dedicated to reflection. Norwegians often celebrate Romjul by slowing down and socializing less. It is held as a time to rest and physically replenish in preparation for the year to come. Inspired by Romjul, you’re invited to check out this seasonal package created to support you in making space for rest, reflection, replenishment and connection!

February Writing Retreat

Winter is a rich time for introspection, extended periods of silence and stillness, and an exploration of the richness to be found in the darkness. Join spiritual teacher Caverly Morgan and I for a weekend writing retreat (February 9-11, 2024) on Whidbey Island. This retreat will feature contemplative writing practices, guided relaxation and opportunities to enjoy silence and the natural world.
