I am an accredited facilitator and coach and hold open spaces of deep listening for those of us longing to reconnect and restore our relationships with ourselves, each other, Earth, and all life. We come together to ground ourselves in gratitude, and to honour our pain and longing as an expression of the pain of the world, of our connection to the whole of life, and as a way to release powerful energy for change. We support and encourage one another to live from the heart, to nourish and sustain life's sacredness through our appreciation, love and care. We pause, breathe, watch, listen, taste and touch - and rediscover the joy of simple things. Gatherings can be co-created with you to meet the particular needs of your group. Whatever our focus, the invitation is always to start paying careful attention: to listen deeply with an open heart and mind, a willingness to be changed by what we hear, and the courage to sense into and welcome what's wanting to come alive in and through us. We work with silence, reflective questions and a few simple practices in a spiral process thats helps us to be honest with ourselves, frees us to hear, see and be with others, and reminds us of our natural interrelatedness with our world, our real place of belonging within the circle of life. Spending time in silence opens us to mystery, to the infinite potential within ourselves and within life, and can reconnect us to a fountain of joy and creative life-force. It creates space for, invites in, and nurtures what's wanting to be born. What emerges when we really listen is often surprising, different from anything we could have predicted or come up with on our own. Listening is a creative act, a sacred art. It's a way to bring ourselves back into relationship, a way to "make our relations with the world sacred again".
