FREE YOUR MIND: In our sessions we take time to meditate. We listen to the ring of the bell. In silence and with guidance we take time to notice the present moment, the awareness of breath, the sounds in the room, and the sensations of the body. We notice the thoughts and business of the mind, and begin to observe those thoughts as if they were clouds in the sky. This practice helps the body to relax. We begin to sense what it is like to be in a relaxed state. Awareness arises about how tension is an expression of our negative inner dialogues. Who is speaking? How does this voice relate to your conditioning, your history?
OPEN YOUR HEART: Your heart holds the deepest most important stories of your life. How does it feel to connect with your heart? Is it painful? Is it tight? Does your heart long for connection but feels it needs to stay protected? Through the practice of mindfulness and compassionate listening, I guide you to love and cherish the needs of your heart, to trust the feelings of vulnerability and to move with courage towards fulfillment.
ENERGIZE YOUR BEING: You have one precious life. The energy in your body is yours. Often our negative experiences in childhood and on our life path cause us to withhold ourselves. We resist being expressive, speaking our truth, sharing our feelings, and caring for ourselves. In our sessions, we bring awareness to your moment to moment experience of being in your body. With loving attention you are able to unwind long held tensions and fears, and make more space for free flowing energy that becomes available for you on your life path.
