COACHING for purposeful and inspired living

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. 
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Silence helps us stay anchored and still in this whirling world.

One day each month, in solitude or in community, for a day or for an hour, we say nothing. This simple practice can be a profound connection with our core purpose, and with the rhythm and wisdom of the Universe. 


EXPERIENCES foundational for personal and professional success

Learn how to see.  
Realize that everything
connects to everything else.

Leonardo da Vinci


Now, perhaps more than ever, is a time to live with precision and deep listening.  Learning how to “mind your own business” and show up exactly where and when your gifts are needed.  Training yourself and your psyche to live in harmony with the deep and subtle flows of creation is the foundation of the ancient text known as The I Ching – the Book of Changes. Spend the year of 2020 with a group of peers living with and learning from this amazing book of wisdom and guidance.
