Burn out leads to breakthrough…
I was living the life of my dreams. I had a lovely partner, work that I adored, and a mountainside home like a sanctuary. From the outside, I looked free and happy. Mentally, I was a prisoner, filled with self-criticism, and I projected that onto those closest to me. Incessant comparisons left me alienated and I didn’t enjoy my work like I once did. There was no lasting sense of peace.
The Work found me when I was at the brink of burnout and deep despondency. Today, when I experience feeling overwhelmed or anxious, The Work gives me my mind back and way back from torment to ease.
I enjoy my own company and the sweetness found in silence. I am living in a deeper presence and comfort in being with whatever life offers—without hesitation. I am thankful for a way out of the pain of separation when I continue to judge myself and others as either below or above me.
The Work has helped me to find love, acceptance, and greater fearlessness during challenging relationship issues. I am more quickly and easily able to see my part in the suffering and angst as well as a clear path back to connection and love.
Clearing my mind from its embedded judgments has opened me to creativity and confidence in the flow of life. I often have no attachment to stories about the future and find myself very open to Life, without trying to control it, change it, or even know anything about it. I find myself being created moment to moment as life unfolds in a way that feels inspired, open, and enlivened.
I enjoy working with people one on one, be it by phone or in person, especially those interested in waking up from the places where their asleepness or nightmare is dampening their spirit and zest for life.
I have tenderness for those that struggle with addiction, be it to their negative thinking patterns, exercise, food, or other substances that lead to persistent seeking for comfort externally.
I have created an integrative, powerful holistic personal training and wellness coaching program that touches upon all components of well-being. Through inquiring into painful stories about others, circumstances, and life, I am guiding clients to see that as their mind clears, the body will follow in healthy choices and their hearts become the true director. Self-care becomes not a feat of will power but a “happening”, with ease, flow, and intelligence. It is truly a privilege to witness this!
