In living and making art, we can be quite creative in laying subconscious traps to inhibit our full authenticity. As teacher or coach, I help you access the deeper, more life-giving reasons for enacting your unique artistic path.


Pulling from an endurance and enthusiasm born of many years of personal experience, I will serve as a mirror for your deep wisdom and wellness as you take healthy risks to realize your own deepest creative aliveness.

The Art of Aliveness retreat is an invitation to come home to your true self, to the potency of reality as it is, and to creatively express the uniqueness of your being.

Awakening to the Poetic

A 9 Week Series of Meditation and Poetry

How do you awaken and tune to the poetic? Do you remember your ways as a child of connecting to this animate, breathing world?


In these times of rapid change, challenge, and opportunity, it is vital that we connect in brave, supportive community to remind ourselves of the nutrients embedded in reality – the powerful ways that pain and loss carve through our beings, the delicious refreshment of beauty in all its forms, and the ultimate satisfaction of resting as our true nature: vast, unborn, and indestructible.
