“When facing the inevitable challenges of life, I believe we can reduce our pain greatly by tuning into our inner world with openness, in a safe and supportive environment. No matter how hard our reality might be, we can develop compassion for ourselves, build acceptance, heal our wounds, and find our own creative ways to take on a new path filled with meaning and satisfaction. I have experienced this process myself and its transformative power and beauty inspired me to facilitate it for other humans. I am honored and grateful for getting to do this work and see people growing and feeling better every day.”
