If you penetrate one barrier, there is another.

This reminder is a map of life.  If we consider a challenge, an obstruction, a barrier as a prevention of our destination then it will prevent us moving forward.

By re-framing the barrier into a part of the journey’s map we skip over the disgruntlement, the despair. Instead it’s just part of life to observe and continue moving forward.

Meditation is called “practice” because practice is required daily to train for an awakened existence.

Daily, I must penetrate these barriers, to live the life of liberation.  This is what gets me to my cushion each day…I call it Cushion Wisdom!

Body Electric takes a coach deep into their own somatic wisdom. This embodied learning then becomes a backbone to how we coach.

Business Alchemy came at the perfect time in my identity formation as a coach. The instructors brought home practical aspects of crafting a business and marketing tools in a way that was more about solid self-expression rather than by-the-book, one-size-fits-all. The creativity flowed.

Mindful Eating: Mindful Life is more than just about food. It’s about our emotional responses to trauma and how we cope with them. The class was extremely beneficial and was a growing experience that will be a part of me the rest of my life.
