1:1 Mentorship Application

 

INDIVIDUAL MEDITATION  We get comfortable in our seat and start with our breath ~ just breathe.  Together we will explore the mind-body-heart connection with personalized guided mindfulness meditations for your new daily practice, or to deepen your existing practice.  I will also create a personalized daily practice for you including Breathwork + Movement + Meditation.

Maybe you have found yourself drawn to meditation for general interest, health, restorative, self-care, or after experiencing a major life transition such as grief or loss.  I will share parts of my journey with you and how life-changing the effects of a daily personal practice can be.  When my life suddenly changed forever, I was left completely broken and lost.  My intuition showed me if I committed to my practice it would bring me back to myself,  not my ‘old self’, but to a self without so many damaged and missing pieces.  By listening to my heart and trusting my intuition I have experienced a rebirth of sorts.  I have come to accept that life may not be perfect, but it can be meaningful.

FAMILY & GROUP MEDITATION  Bring your family and friends closer together through the transformative benefits of a shared group meditation practice.  Together we will explore the mind-body-heart connection with personalized guided mindfulness meditations for general interest, health, restorative, self-care, or for celebration, new beginnings & ceremony.  I will also create a personalized daily practice for you including Breathwork + Movement + Meditation.

Together we are all on a journey called life.  We are a little broken and a little shattered inside.  Each one of us is aspiring to make it to the end.  None is deprived of pain here and we have all suffered in our own ways.  I think our journey is all about healing ourselves and healing each other in our own special ways.  Let’s just help each other put all those pieces back together and make it to the end more beautifully.  Let us help each other survive.
Baba Ram Dass
