It’s easy to be present when life is pleasant and can be tough when times are challenging.
I dream of a world in which we all have the capacity to stay connected with ourselves and each other in challenging times. I specialize in untangling knots of pain, discovering the beauty locked inside, and facilitating a free flow of life energy and interconnection. Racism, addiction, and death have been my greatest teachers and often favorite topics for seminars.
Early in my son’s 10-year journey with addiction, we were introduced to Nonviolent Communication (NVC). This supported transforming our relationship from shame and blame to love and acceptance. My capacity for saying “yes!” to life, exactly as it is, has been deeply cultivated by a Nonviolent Communication and life-long mindfulness practice.
My relationship with Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh has animated my work promoting peace, reconciliation, and social justice. I have pursued my aspirations with zeal, accumulating more than 1000 hours of training all over the world in multiple modalities, including 25 years’ experience in the healing arts of acupuncture, shiatsu and East Asian medicine.
I look forward to connecting with you.
