The Power of Presence

As a long-time practitioner and teacher, I have found that there is an art to translating and tailoring these practices to each specific context, environment, group and individual. I have come to love the aliveness, creativity and connection that naturally emerges when people truly embody presence in a way that is authentic, unscripted, uncontrived. Insights arise. Ideas come. New ways of seeing, thinking, being and collaborating emerge.

The practices I share are simple, yet potent – embedded within them is the deeper work of transforming the habitual patterns and unconscious conditioning that derail us, block our flow of aliveness and inhibit our ability to connect in deeper, more meaningful ways. This work of untangling and transforming patterns is at the heart of what I do.

The power of presence is the power to be free, free from our internal and external conditioning and free to connect with ourselves and each other in authentic and impactful ways.
