Welcome. Life is a sacred journey, but it doesn’t always feel that way. We can easily get lost in our daily demands and become disconnected from our spirit and source of inspiration. If you’re longing to connect more deeply with your Sacred self, and the Love that is at the core of your being, you’re in the right place. My work is about sharing the journey together, so that we can see the Divine nature shining through all of life, even in the difficult and ordinary moments.

Listen to the Sound of the Bells

Wednesday Wisdom. Listen to the Sound of the Bells. I have always been drawn to the sound of church bells, to their ancient sound, to the way their ringing penetrates the air and settles in my heart. When I hear the tolling of these bells, I feel my entire being shaken; and I hear an invitation […]

10 ways to practice surrender today

  Wednesday Wisdom: 10 Ways to Practice Surrender Today. I am asking for God to teach me to detach from my situation at work—in this case the details don’t really matter. How am I seeking a larger, deeper, and more compassionate way of seeing through every situation?

Love is a constant source of energy

Wednesday Wisdom: Love is a Source of Energy. What if sharing love wasn’t based on how we were feeling, but based on a daily, intentional commitment to love? There are many moments in a day when we just don’t feel good for various reasons–fatigue, stress, worry, anger, and more–and in those moments, we tend to constrict […]
