row of succulents / Portland Mindfulness + Business Coach Welcome to OpenSpace Mindfulness

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

Oh my heart. You don’t have to go it alone. Train yourself to train just a little more gently.

Meditation Mondays

Meditation Mondays

Each week we explore a contemporary, topical theme through the lens of mindfulness and community dialogue. And we experiment with bringing the idea from mind into body through practice. Monday evenings, 7-8:30pm PST, by donation. Make a cup of tea, find a comfortable seat and join us!

Mindfulness-Based Coaching

Mindfulness-Based Coaching

I support people looking to live their lives more fully aligned with a sense of purpose and partner with solopreneurs and businesses who want to express the full breadth and depth of their mission. The first step is always a complimentary conversation. I’m currently accepting new clients for December and January.

Weekly Rest

Weekly Rest

Renew weekly with Yoga Nidra. Through a process of supported and guided relaxation release accumulated tension (physical, emotional and spiritual) and cultivate the state of Yoga Nidra — a form of consciousness that allows us to replenish and rest in restorative theta brain waves. Tuesdays, 5:30-6:30pm PST, by donation.
