I offer private, individual sessions in my local area.
These sessions are often arranged as a series of meetings, lasting from a few hours to a whole day. When weather permits, the sessions are held outside in the rich environments of Sonoma County, just minutes away from my home.
For many years, I have worked intensively with individuals, couples and families one on one, often for an entire week during private wilderness journeys. It comes very naturally for me to be a witness and facilitator for others who seek a safe and open way to address and gain insight into life issues.
My practice is based on a deep trust in the instinctive intelligence we each carry within. Through expression, movement, dialogue, active listening and ceremony we explore together. The intent of these private sessions is to help you find the wisdom and actions you need while also touching into the grounding and perspective the natural world can provide. I believe awareness of how we are influenced by natural cycles and seasonal change is an essential understanding.
I am also available for sessions over the phone and Skype.
Ceremony and Rites of Passage
Certain occasions in our lives deserve to be marked and honored in a ceremonial way; the birth of a child, the death of a loved one, a new home, the changes inherent on the journey into adulthood, marriage and separations; beginnings and completions in life. Trained in ritual through years of in depth association with teachers and traditions both East and West, I follow no particular path or creed, though I am deeply influenced by indigenous culture and teachings which honor the Earth.
The intent is to listen first and then craft the experience, where the ceremony serves the spirit of what’s needed rather than the other way around. I’ve performed many rites of passage experiences for young people and adults, marriage ceremonies, house and land blessings, memorials and celebrations of special occasions and seasonal events… to name a few.
This is an opportunity to work together in Sonoma County from 1-3 days in a variety of natural environments from redwoods to tide pools, yet have the comforts of local accommodations for you at night. The rhythm of the work flows between intensive one on one time to address life issues and personal time for retreat. The amenities alone for personal nurturing and health in the area are well known through out the world. Well beforehand, we discuss how a retreat will be designed and why. Fees are determined with each individual retreat and can be created for individuals, couples and small groups. I am also available on a limited basis to travel to your own location for the time together.
Please contact me to discuss further details and possibilities.
