With the next iteration of my work emerging, there arises a need for a new way of presenting it. Welcome to the new site and the new blog space. (If you are interested in viewing previous blog posts that arose from my first book, Companioning the Sacred Journey: A Guide to Creating a Compassionate Container for Your Spiritual Practice, you can access that blog HERE.)
My work with compassion-based mindfulness is springing forth from the personal journey I took a few years back when my canine companion, Shyla, transitioned out of her four-legged body. That journey as propelled me on a journey of compassion, mindfulness, joy and now service.
Today, in the next tier up the spiral, my work is grounded in evidence-based scientific discovery of the power of mindfulness and compassion in individual lives. From reducing stress and stress-related illnesses, helping with depression and anxiety, allowing for more freedom of choice, clarity and emotional ease, compassion-based mindfulness is a powerful change agent.
It has also prompted me to change my mission--I am now dedicated to helping bring more mindfulness and compassion to everyday life through my work as a mindfulness teacher, life coach and consultant.
Stay tuned for more posts from my forthcoming book, Compassion-based Mindfulness for Peace, Clarity and Freedom. And, may you find the presence, spaciousness and clarity that comes from living a mindful and compassionate life.
