About


As a life-long wisdom seeker, after studying and practicing bodywork therapy for 29 years, I decided to retire my private practice in bodywork in 2017 and shift my focus to teaching wisdom cultivation.

In preparation for this transition, I worked and reworked the daily cultivation practice I had developed for myself and made it into a system I could teach others. I also took a seven-month, 200-hour Meditation and Contemplative Studies Facilitation training program to learn about contemplative practices from around the world and how to be a facilitator of wisdom cultivation in an open-minded, multi-cultural, multi-faith, and dogma-free environment. And soon I will begin offering classes!

My workshops will not teach you my belief system or any belief system. My purpose is not to convert you or persuade you in any way. My goal is to help you connect with your own wisdom in your own way. Each and every one of us has a wealth of wisdom within us that we do not always know how to hear. I can help you hear that incredible voice within. I can give you the tools you need to navigate life your way — to know where you stand and what is truly meaningful for you!


Come join me, won’t you?
