These qualities are essential to you. This intrinsic essence can turn the dark clouds of life ― your very human dilemmas ― into doorways, inviting the peace you seek.
The awakening you seek calls to you from its hiding place within the challenges of your life. Hidden beneath them is your longing to be unconditionally liberated. And I have one deep and foremost offering: to support you in awakening and remaining awake to this knowing presence.
Striving to avoid, solve, and get rid of your difficulties actually hides this knowingness from you. In therapy, we collaborate to discover the light of awareness hidden in the shadows.
The emerging relaxation at your core asks you to learn how to more and more be with whatever disturbs you. Instead of resisting and withdrawing from struggle, you find yourself gradually allowing and noticing. What once was an enormous pull to avoid, distract from, or replace whatever difficulty you face fades away as you learn that you can sit with, learn from, and transform challenges into possibilities.
By allowing space to notice and be with life’s dark clouds, you gain access to clarity, and a capacity for action from inner wisdom. There is mental, physical, and emotional stability.
The calm awareness that allows all experiences to contribute to your deepening well-being can become, and stay, at the foreground in the midst of your daily life. It is essentially steady, stable, reliable ― and directly accessible to you. It shows you the path to finding lasting happiness at your core.
Perhaps you are familiar with the freedom that always is, right here and right now, but life challenges are currently blocking access to this intrinsic knowledge. Our work together can cultivate a stronger connection to the presence, stillness, and awareness that is always available within life’s moments of struggle.
