Mindful Self-Compassion Program

Be a part of this empirically-supported program to learn and practice your way of accessing self-compassion in a small and supportive community. Our next course begins October 11th.

Coaching for the Sensitive Person

Take dedicated time and space just for you to be seen and heard, and engage with a range of healing practices for greater self-knowing and flourishing. We specialize in working with those who identify as sensitive.

Custom Workshops

Custom design an experience for your team to bring self-compassion, mindfulness, movement into your organization or workplace.

Be kinder to yourself and then

let your kindness flood the world.
