There is a voice that doesn’t use words. Listen.
Ashley has an uncanny ability to not only understand an organization’s mission and identity, but to glean even its more subtle, unspoken sensibilities. In her work with Northwest Film Forum, she was instrumental in creating public experiences that truly exemplify its spirit. I’ve never worked with anyone who made the process and end result so natural and effortless.
Practical, Wise & Calming
I always look forward to Tuesday meditations with Ashley. In my business, which is sometimes around-the-clock busy, she's taught me how to find balance no matter where I am. Her guided meditation sessions are very practical, wise, and calming. I find I can use much of what she teaches us each week in my daily life. The world is a happier and more peaceful place because of Ashley's soothing presence and constant encouragement to find the breath.
I was almost ready to give-up on my business when I had an inspiring conversation with Ashley. After talking with Ashley the first time, I came away with a new sense of hope and possibility. From our ongoing work together I was able to gain more confidence in myself, grow my business and make enormous changes in both my personal and professional life. She is non-judgmental, holds a calm equanimity around the joys and challenges of making change, and is very perceptive. She helped me identify and clarify what I wanted and together we came up with a concrete path to get there. Working with Ashley was one of the most empowering things I did for my life this year.
Though I'm new to meditation, I felt immediately comfortable joining the mindfulness group led by Ashley Dahl. I learned to let the world and the pressures of work slip away as I focused on my breath. Our weekly sessions helped me to relax and to gain perspective on my life. I highly recommend meditating with Ashley!
Support, Know-How & Kindness
Ashley helped me make a seemingly overwhelming task doable. Her inquiries allowed me to come up with my own answers. As an entrepreneur who worked alone, it was incredibly comforting to have Ashley on my side – to hold me accountable and be a sounding board, to provide guidance and help me stay focused. I didn’t feel alone as I navigated tricky territory, practically or emotionally. Ashley encouraged me to think broadly about work/life balance and take steps to create “a whole life I'm in love with.” I am so grateful to have had her in my corner with abundant support, practical know-how and kindness.
In her presence alone, Ashley is able to hold a peaceful space conducive for people to explore and experience meditation. This capacity of hers to be present with students, combined with her knowledge of meditation and mindfulness, reflects her passion and dedication. Having a teacher like her has been an enlightening experience.
Ashley has the uncanny ability to help me bring focus and direction in the face of my swirling, sometimes chaotically energetic life. Each time I work with her I feel as though I have a serious leg-up on my path. She is funny, smart, compassionate and kind, with a razor-sharp mind.
Stillness & Vibrancy
Ashley is one of the most compassionate and principled individuals I've worked with. She makes mindfulness and meditation accessible and welcoming, regardless of one's previous experience. Her passion and presence bring stillness and vibrancy to any room. Her openness and non-judgmental attitude are as refreshing as they are contagious. I consider Ashley a personal spiritual mentor; an incredibly skillful teacher and grounded muse in a world threatened by constant noise and distraction.
