“Bodhi” (boh-dee) from Sanskrit means “enlightenment” or “awakening.”

Healing & Mindfulness Coach

You have within you the seed of “bodhi”. It is not something that needs to be added to you. It is not something you can create by gathering more knowledge. Rather, it is a potential that is and has always been within you. You simply need to learn how to cultivate it. In our work together you will be introduced to the principles of mindfulness. I will show you how habitual mind operates, how to work with fear, and how real courage deveops. You will begin to understand what is meant by the statement, “the mind is a good servant, but not a good master”, and why it is so important that we develop familiarity with our own minds and learn to discipline and “tame” the mind.

You will be supported and empowered as you begin to develop insight into your obstacles and begin to understand they are the very stepping stones you must use for the development of deepening awareness. We must begin where we are.

I have helped many people decrease stress, develop the confidence to meet challenges,  learn to be assertive and communicate effectively, and  discover resources within themselves that they did not know were there. As your coach and ally I will help you discover the steps that will bring you closer to living a conscious and fulfilling life.

Working with your own neurosis is like untying a knot. You first need to understand how it is entangled; you need to familiarize yourself with it intimately.  Then you can begin to loosen the knot, or “loosen the grip” of habitual mind.

I provide guidance in person, by phone, or by Skype. If you are local to Sarasota, I can meet with you in person.

What difference might it make in your life to have access to an experienced, knowledgeable, and caring person at your convenience and from the comfort of your home?
