My methods are drawn from my experience with Esalen massage, embodiment, movement, meditation, midwifery and psychology studies.
After 50 years of studying, practicing and teaching somatic practices at Esalen, I am inspired to use the wisdom of these practices to help others through heart-felt coaching.
My coaching is somatically-based, grounded in the belief that the answers we seek can be found in the wisdom of the body. By developing tools to help cultivate somatic awareness, personal and relational transformation is possible.
Through deep listening and gentle guidance we will work together in order to attain embodied presence and self-acceptance. We will also work with movement, meditation, self-inquiry, and grounding methods.
In addition, we will explore heartfelt, honest and mindful communication to develop relational skills. With awareness of feelings, and skillful acknowledgment of them, we can communicate with wisdom, clarity and self-agency in our personal and professional lives.
Through embodiment, mindfulness, and compassionate connection, we will deepen our inner wisdom—experiencing our lives with an open and peaceful heart.
