Be. Here. Now.

While there is nothing wrong with feeling strong emotions, even the fear of becoming overwhelmed by them keeps us from being fully engaged and completely relaxed. Developing a skill for becoming compassionately aware of your senses (AKA Somatic Mindfulness) is the key towards growth and fulfillment.

I can help you develop this skill. It doesn't matter if you've never tried it before, or if you are firmly convinced that you are "incapable of meditating," we will find a way of learning to focus on your experience. 

Whether we use our breath, the feel of our feet on the ground, or the natural sounds of the environment, learning to ground ourselves in the present is universally understood to be the first step towards not only decreasing stress, but as a complete method towards healing those past wounds that we keep tripping over.

The wonderful thing about learning to be present is that it is both a method to getting to where you want to go, and the destination itself. For what worth are any of your future plans if you can't really “Be Here Now” to enjoy them? 

Here’s the deal. The human soul doesn’t want to be advised or fixed or saved. It simply wants to be witnessed — to be seen, heard and companioned exactly as it is.
