This is My Story

I have been on a journey of seeking a means of living my heart connection for many years.  In my work and in my writing, I seek to help others engage more fully with their own healing journey and heart and soul connection.

What I offer is meant to help evoke your own response, ideas, insights and awareness into what sustains and fulfills you. About 15 years ago, I took part in a program called Transforming Your Working and Living.  The ideas set forth in this program sent me on a quest to learn how I can bring more balance and harmony into my working and living.

 

I wanted to be engaged in the world in ways that are meaningful for me, yet also allowed me to give back to my community, my family and friends.  What I wanted most, was a way of living that was sustainable; sustainable for me and for the world around me.

What I have discovered through my seeking is the journey inward, journey outward way of being called the contemplative way of life.  This is a rhythmic way of life in which we can turn inward with our questions, our concerns, our joy, our struggles and listen to our hearts, our bodies, our souls, and find guidance and wisdom.  Then we journey back outward, into the world with what we have learned.  There is a balance in this kind of being between action and reflection, being and doing.  This journey inward, journey outward approach to living has enabled me to stay true to myself and to live in alignment with my heart and soul.

I have worked in the Health and Wellness industry for over 15 years and I am passionate about the intersection of Spirituality and Health.  I believe that there is a deep connection between attending to our spiritual lives and our health.  I know that when I tend to my spirit, I am a more vibrant, grateful, creative person.  I also know that I shine with vitality when I am in harmony with my heart and soul.

I have spent the past 12 years learning practices to guide people to the place where they can listen to their own inner wisdom of body, heart and soul.  I find it the most rewarding work that I can be doing and the most satisfying kind of life I could be living.

About My Work

I help people return to wholeness and live from their Heart Connection through: • Retreat Leadership • Wholebody Focusing • Spiritual Direction • Life Energy Coaching • Writing In my training as a spiritual director and wholebody focusing trainer, we were taught how to ask evocative questions; questions that evoke an inner response and bring clarity, understanding and insight into an individuals life experience so they can find their own next step forward. We encounter the evocative through images, questions, music, nature and writing. It is my hope that when you visit my website, you will encounter the evocative; something that touches your heart, brings clarity to your own human journey, or speaks to your soul. Our modern day living is filled with so much busyness, distraction and obligation. Our attention is continually pulled in multiple directions. It is easy to get overwhelmed with the pace we are called to live these days. It seems that we are constantly on the move. The Heart Connection invites us to sink more deeply into what brings meaning to our lives and to what brings fulfillment and satisfaction. It calls us into balance between doing and being. Living at the heart level invites the wisdom of the heart and soul to be the guiding force that moves us forward and calls us to a life of purpose. Life starts with the heart connection. The first tissues to form in the human embryo are the tissues of the heart which establish the unique pulse of life that enlivens every living cell of the body. When in a state of health and vibrancy, every cell in your body resounds with the rhythm established by the beating of your heart. For many of us, as we go through life, we encounter situations and conditioning that can inhibit the pulse of life that is our unique signature and we begin to feel a sense of disease and disconnect within our body, mind and soul. It is through the heart centre that we integrate all of our life experiences, sometimes, life gets overwhelming, too much happens too quickly and our hearts can become shut down. We are always seeking to return to the pulse of our own heartbeat. We are continually seeking a return to that sense of wholeness and vibrancy that occurs when we are living from our Heart Connection.
