Compassionate presence is refuge that offers freedom to unlock, discover, and explore your inner heart journey. In this space you are offered unconditional love, are seen, heard, and honored, empowering you to courageously trust your intuition.
As Spiritual Midwife my intention is to embody compassionate presence through offering women’s circles and individual sessions.
My guiding principles
“We need to climb back into our bodies and honor them as instruments of our souls.” – Jan Phillips
We are luminous Spirits alive on this planet in the temple of our physical bodies. Our physical bodies hold the patterns, memories, and traumas of our life. Daily life can often find us operating as though our bodies are merely the means to do what our racing mind demands. Coming back to the awareness and honoring of our body allows us to tap into the body’s wisdom, bringing integration, balance, meaning, and purpose.
Creativity is at the heart of who we are. It is a pathway to the core of our connection with the Divine and a tool to help us see ourselves as we are.
Within the security of a safe container there is freedom to play with abandon bringing all of yourself to the moment. “Wasting” time playing with the creative arts of music, drama, visual arts, storytelling, writing, and dance provides a wonderful, wild, and insightful adventure.
Deep Restorative Rest is key to functioning well physically, mentally, and spiritually. We live in a time and a culture that has not valued rest. Women especially are expected to multi-task. The strong emphasis to caretake and be responsible for other’s needs can leave women exhausted, totally depleted. Prioritizing one’s need for rest is essential to honoring and awakening one’s true potential.
Yoga Nidra is a sleep based meditation that allows stress to melt away and opens the heart to receive peace and ease. From this place of peace we become aware of our dreams and make decisions rooted in self-love.
We are created longing for community. Many of us from an early age didn’t feel safe to express ourselves freely. It is in safe space that one can risk being seen and heard. It takes time to unwind the tangled threads that may have wrapped us with shame and guilt. Being in a safe community provides security to share your story, be seen, heard, and honored.
