The heart of my practice is creating continuity of awareness from “on the cushion” to “off the cushion” into daily life. I am inspired by continual exploration of “dancing with life”—the dance of work-life balance, relationships, health challenges, aging, and bringing wise action to the tremendous challenges facing the world. I am a longtime student of Marshall Rosenberg’s Nonviolent Communication (NVC) and committed to “being the change you want to see in the world.” I first discovered these practices through yoga in my early twenties, which provided tremendous support when facing acute anxiety. Over a number of years, the focus of my practice evolved to meditation, dharma, and exploring the power of awareness in daily life. I enjoy sharing my love and deep appreciation for these practices, which bring us back home into presence and greater freedom. Visit mindfulnesstraining.org for more.
