A powerful insight is illuminated when we realize how much our conditioned patterns mask our happiness. Many of these patterns have plagued us for years. We hear about freedom as a possibility, but we just don’t know how to find our way there. And meanwhile, the patterns keep getting played out in our minds, our emotions, our relationships, and our choices in life. We feel stuck in the painful sense of separation…from ourselves and the sacredness of all of Life.

Join this 4-session series as we create a safe and supportive healing community to do the deeper work that unfolds on the path of awakening. Through helpful practices, including guided meditations, clarifying wisdom, and heartfelt conversation, we’ll learn to untangle these patterns and find our way home to the ever present space of inner aliveness.

    • We’ll cultivate a sense of safety for those hidden, cut off parts of ourselves to come out into the light of loving awareness. This is what heals shame.
    • We’ll attend to the nervous system and the body to stay rooted in the world.
    • We’ll learn to notice repetitive thought patterns without getting caught in them and challenge limiting beliefs about ourselves, others, and the world.
    • We’ll practice honoring and embracing difficult emotions so they can be offered the loving attention they so desperately long for.
    • And we’ll discover, over and over, the ground of being, your true home that has never been touched by these experiences.

Stress and worry…people pleasing…persistent relationship struggles…proving yourself through accomplishments…these longstanding patterns are profound invitations into liberation from the sense of separation. Together, we lovingly embrace our humanness as we expand into overflowing appreciation, vibrant joy, and deep connection with all of Life.

“At any moment, within the field of your own experience, there is an inner sanctuary of presence and stillness. You access this space by shifting your attention away from the jumble of thoughts, feelings, stories, fears, and external input such as others’ opinions. You simply turn inward—beyond all mind movement—and be.

In no time at all, you find the ground of being, the light of living vibration that’s here in every moment. It’s timeless, which means it’s eternally present, and all-embracing as the unity of all. Don’t be afraid of this vast love. Fall into its arms…”
