The Power of Presence

The power of presence is the power to be free, free from our internal and external conditioning and free to connect with ourselves, each other and the world around us in more meaningful ways.

I often think of myself as a ‘translator’ and enjoy the process (and challenge) of sharing these teachings and practices in an interactive, embodied, and engaging way that supports presence, mindful communication, and purposeful impact.

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.

I have come to love the aliveness, creativity and connection that naturally arises when people truly embody presence in a way that is authentic, unscripted, uncontrived. Insights arise. Inner wisdom emerges. Ideas flow. New ways of seeing, thinking, being and collaborating emerge.
