We all want to feel good in our lives, to be relaxed and feel peaceful, optimistic, and inspired. This is our birthright, our natural way of being.

Why is this not our everyday experience? Unexplored trauma is at the root of patterns that keep us stuck in emotional pain and limited in life. We long to be free, but somehow these same patterns keep getting played out in our mind, emotions, relationships, and choices in life.

Come and join this powerful 5-session course as we create a safe and supportive healing community to do the deep work of trauma healing. Trauma happens in relationships that lack the safety we need. In this course, we come together to offer a safe space that welcomes you just as you are—with your fears, self-doubts, shame, and confusion.

Through focused teachings, guided meditation, and experiments during and between our sessions, you’ll learn to untangle your conditioned patterns from the past and find your way home to being present and alive in your life as it is right now. This is where you’re available to creativity, enthusiasm, and the simple joys of everyday living.

Your daily life will be the laboratory as we explore specific tools to feel grounded and safe within yourself and your relationships.

Stress and worry… people pleasing… persistent relationship struggles… proving yourself through accomplishments… the inner critic… these longstanding patterns are profound invitations for compassion and understanding. Together, we’ll lovingly embrace our humanness as we expand into peace, connection, and everyday joy.
