• Has your life-long desire to alleviate others’ suffering become stagnant? Has your heart become depleted and discouraged by the complexity of the global issues you’re tackling each day?
• Do you feel a gap between your subjective calling (the contribution you aspire to make in the world), and the objective impact you are able to have on the world? Do you feel confused without a clear vision for how to bridge that gap?
• In your work, have you ever felt forced to compromise your integrity and values? Does your job get the best of your passion? Have you neglected your own needs, and now finding yourself in a state of depletion or isolation?
• Do you ever feel unheard or afraid to share your intuition or insights with your colleagues, hiding parts of yourself in order to appear credible?
• In a world facing existential risk, are you losing hope that your contribution can make a meaningful and sustainable difference? As a result, are you becoming increasingly numb?
• During day-to-day interactions within your organization, do you ever feel alone, starved for something essential that is missing, and without a clear sense of meaning, direction or purpose?
• Do you ever feel frustrated, powerless, or angry when confronting systems and bureaucracies that limit your capacity to implement change and obstruct your genuine expression and creativity?
• Do you compare yourself with colleagues, fearing you will fail to make a unique contribution within your field of care and concern?
In our initial sessions, we illuminate often-unconscious and conflicting commitments and assumptions that keep you stagnant, depleted, discouraged and confused.
How we perceive ourselves and the world is often invisible to us, preventing us from making the changes we desire both within ourselves and our environment. We use exploration tools grounded in the latest developmental theories to unveil those foot-on-the-brake-limiting attributes that get in the way of your foot-on-the-pedal-desire for change.
Next, we set a powerful vision and design a blueprint for your vision: Through an in-depth inquiry that draws upon all three centers of knowing — mind, heart, body — we clarify: what is yours to do now, so you can bridge the gap between what your heart longs for, and what the world needs from you.
Then we examine how and why you have compromised yourself throughout your life — constructing a false personality or False Self —to ensure your needs for love, safety, and belonging were met. We begin the work to shed your False Self, which prevents you from becoming who you’re called to be and from doing what you’re called to do.
While learning about your Enneagram type’s unique challenges and potentials, we engage in dynamic step-by-step practices to gradually deconstruct and shed the mental, emotional, and bodily contractions that keep you stuck in patterns that no longer serve you.
Next, you become intimate with the parts of yourself that you are hiding from others and from yourself.
Through the use of visualization, journaling, and practices focused on embodiment, self-compassion, and self-observation, you learn to embrace and listen to those wounded and hidden parts in safety and with compassion. You then begin to metabolize and shed the residual tensions that inhibit you from your natural expression.
Here, you learn to awaken to the Love Intelligence/Unified Field/Source that underlies reality. By engaging in sacred technologies (including meditation, guided visualization, chanting, prayer, and other practices) that are aligned with your sensitivity, you absorb yourself in embodied states of deep love — not as a conditional human emotion, but as the force that coalesces all existence. You begin to experience its ultimate healing force for yourself, others, and the world. You feel more alive, with a renewed sense of hope and meaning.
In the final stage, you RISE into your heart-centered wisdom and leadership, experiencing yourself and everyone else as unique beings with unique contributions.
We engage in alchemical practices that turn your most challenging life experiences and wounds into the soul-forging ingredients that make you uniquely designed to address specific changes within your field of care and concern. These practices harness your feminine sensitivity through poetry, music, and images, allowing you to tap into the unique ways you touch others and in which you are touched by others. As you become more attuned to yourself and others’ unique selves, you experience a deep reverence for what unites us — the One True Self / Source that shines through every person. As you become increasingly harmonized with your unique frequency, comparing yourself with anyone becomes irrelevant. You begin to show up & to shine from within, while appreciating others’ unique selves more fully.
