This human gig is not so easy. In fact, being a person can be downright hard.
It’s so easy to get overwhelmed by All The Things— expectations and agendas, doubts and disappointments, commitments and choices, diagnoses and disasters, ambiguities and absolutes, and broken hearts and broken dreams. Perhaps the corridors of your mind echo with unforgiving voices (including your own ruthless inner critic) telling you what You’re Supposed To Be and how YOU’RE DOING IT ALL WRONG.
It might seem like everyone else got the Instruction Manual that was left out of your packaging. Maybe you’ve even settled into the dull ache of what Thoreau called a life of “quiet desperation”: this appears to be your lot, and there’s no way out.
I believe that there is a better way—and you can find it. I’ll help you.
I want to help you to create a safe, centered, expansive, nurturing home within your mind and body, where you can relax, connect with yourself, and make more effective choices for how to live your life. Where you can be a better friend and ally to yourself. And, in the process, (re)discover joy, excitement, optimism, and hope. I call this the “still point of the turning world,” from T.S. Eliot’s poem Four Quartets.
The still point is not just a place of internal peace. It serves as the launchpad for courageous imperfect action. Because, ultimately, the reason for all of this is not actually the still point; it’s the dance. Don’t die leaning against the wall. Ready to jump in?
