My Background and Approach

I have my Master's Degree from Naropa University in Contemplative Psychotherapy & Buddhist Studies and have a long background working in the Shamanic Arts and end of life including hospice care. My training in contemplative practice & psychotherapy was focused on Maitri (Tibetan Buddhism), which can be translated as "making friends with oneself. Having gentleness, kindness, friendliness and warmth towards oneself & others." Sometimes we are not very skilled at being gentle & kind to ourselves. Often the opposite is the norm, which results an endless barrage of self-aggressive thoughts riddled with "shoulds." It's impossible to connect to our life from this place of self-judgement. We can't fake it. Loving ourselves is not fluffy, unimportant stuff. It is the most essential ingredient to living a life of purpose & connection.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Mindfulness has become a commonly used term that in some ways has become watered-down due to overly broad use. From my point of view, Mindfulness is our effort to turn our attention & awareness to the present moment in an intentional way. When we use mindfulness to work with body, breath, movement & posture this creates embodiment. Being present within our body creates a higher potential for healing trauma & increasing quality of our relationships overall.
