Adult Classes
   & Workshops

Walk the Middle Way classes are facilitated in Circle, embodying Restorative Practices designed to cultivate acceptance, curiosity, and courage to speak your truth.

Participants have the unique experience of learning and practicing mindfulness fully integrated with community building.  By the end of a series people experience genuine connection through sharing joys and challenges, honoring similarities, celebrating our differences, and feeling a profound sense of empathy.


In addition to formal meditation, emphasis is given to relational mindfulness (deep listening, mindful speech, how we are together), applied mindfulness (mindful pausing, awareness throughout the day), and compassion practice (for ourselves and others).

All classes include:​

  • Mindfulness practice 

  • Mindful Movement (Tai Chi, Qigong)

  • Mindful Listening (group shares & dialog)

  • Self-Inquiry & Reflection 

  • Storytelling & Neuroscience

Mindfulness Mentoring


The journey of mindfulness is profound.  We learn to create a more honest and intimate relationship with ourselves and others.  It means accepting ourselves fully, embracing sides of us we find challenging to love.  It cultivates the courage to face habits that no longer serve us, and having strength to let them go. 

Mindfulness allows us to live with greater authenticity, so we can show up each day embodying the values that resonate most deeply with us. It asks us to be more compassionate and patient with ourselves, so that we can bring our best self to others.      

Having practiced mindfulness for over 20 years, it's my deep honor to provide guidance, support, and a warm presence for those who seek to walk this journey.  I take great joy in mentoring people new to mindfulness, as well as those who seek to deepen their practice.

Wellness Coaching

Wellness Coaching

Every person deserves a welcoming space to share their story, and explore how to cultivate greater wellness and life goals.  It's my hope for people to live with greater fulfillment, authenticity, and courage.

All sessions allow time for deep listening and sharing, and guiding clients through a strength-based design process. We work together to identify wellness goals and growth-areas, and co-create a roadmap that is realistic, actionable, and that embraces your unique strengths.
