Welcome to my website. One of my deep pleasures is to be able to offer you tools you can use to support healing; to become more mindful in practical, everyday ways; to reach beyond where you already are, into your optimal expression; to find deepened self-acceptance, increased self-compassion, and a greater sense of wholeness; and, to live more consciously, more oriented to the present moment and to an awareness of the choices you bring to what life brings your way.

Each year, I choose a theme to carry in the audio meditations that are on the Home Page. Through these meditations, the theme deepens across the year and this has become a process that also guides me more deeply into the living presence of these themes.

The weekly practices in conscious living have been part of this website from the very beginning, and each week offers an opportunity to explore some aspect of mindful living and our moment-to-moment choices about how we move through our world. Doing these practices leads to a deepening awareness of how the quality of our thoughts, feelings, and actions play a significant role in creating the quality of life we live internally. Also, a commitment to bringing along curiosity as a constant companion and learning to allow judgments to arise, move through, and move on can become its own powerful practice.

There are other offerings on the website, including written meditations you can download and use, a few videos of talks I’ve given, information about guided meditations that are available both on CDs and as downloads, and information about my books and upcoming workshops.

In this world that is so deeply in need of healing, it is a powerful practice for me to be able to offer what I can to that process, for us humans and for our beautiful planet, and I am grateful to have this opportunity to share some of what I have created with you. Thank you for visiting!
