Silhouette Of Grasses / Live Radiantly

Live Radiantly / January - June, 2023

A transformative hybrid coaching program.

Do you want to step into your full creative potential?  Would you like to be supported as you bring a personal vision into material reality? 

Then I invite you to join me for Live Radiantly, a transformative coaching program that begins in January. 

We’ll begin and conclude our time together, in-person, on retreat. Between retreats, in addition to gathering twice monthly for online tutorials, you and I will connect personally through 1:1 coaching. During our six-month journey together you will not simply bring a meaningful goal to life. You will also learn tools and perspectives that you can use the rest of your life that will help you in continually realizing your aspirations. 

In order to maintain a high level of personal support, the cohort for this program will be limited to 11 participants. (Let me know if you’d like to be notified when further details are available and registration is open.)

Visit this page to learn more about the program and to access registration. You can find details about the opening and closing retreats here.

Meditation Monday

a place to remember who we are, together

Jocelyn Rahm (of Beam & Anchor) and I began this weekly meditation group because it was something we were both longing for. We’ve each experienced first-hand the ways contemplative practice and community can foster a sense of peace and connection, and wanted to bring them together and offer them up. Each week we explore a contemporary, topical theme and experiment with bringing the idea from mind into body through practice. All are warmly welcomed regardless of experience.

Yoga Nidra

The practice of Yoga Nidra offers an effective and sweet way to bring kindness to our nervous system while tapping into our body’s innate capacity to self-heal and restore. Through a process of supported and guided relaxation we’ll release accumulated tension (physical, emotional and spiritual.) In doing so, we’ll cultivate the state of Yoga Nidra, a state of consciousness that allows us to rest in beneficial theta brain waves. This both activates our body’s natural healing capacities and allows us direct access to our creative and compassion-filled inner wisdom.

Sun Lighting Grass Field / Healing Compassion Fatigue

Healing Compassion Fatigue

Experiential resiliency trainings for people in helping professions and caregiving roles.

As human beings we’re wired to sense and feel what others feel. This is a trait that is key to our survival and wellbeing, a trait that lies at the heart of caregiving roles as well as first-responder and advocacy professions. Problems can arise though when we don’t include ourselves in the circle of care, when we don’t receive sufficient tending as we extend our caring presence to others. Fortunately, there are accessible tools and practices that can not only heal compassion fatigue but promote what is referred to as compassion satisfaction.
