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
