You have arrived here in perfect timing! As we experience the social and health side affects of COVID-19, what might be the beginnings of the second largest civil rights movement in our country, I am here and deeply committed to serving the world through my skills and practices. I hope the following meditation can provide you with some ease at this time. Otherwise, please see the next heading, below.
If you have a moment, I’d like to invite you to pause and take a few full breaths. Our world is changing so quickly, we can forget to feel our feet on the ground. Whether it is the rhythm of your breath, or the sensations in your body, focusing in may awaken sensations in your heart or belly; it would be okay to put a hand there and go back to your breath, or sounds you hear. Let your breath, other point of attraction, (perhaps the words on the page,) assist with anchoring you in this moment. This moment is present for you now. This moment is also here for you. What would be kind for you in this moment? You are the expert on your experience. You are also, beyond your imagination, vital in this world. Please be gentle with you! Notice your toes in this moment. Now your fingers. Release your shoulders with your next exhale.
You are a powerful being. You deserve to be happy. You are who the world is waiting for! Gently returning to focusing on your breath.
Now begin to focus on your out breath, with ease begin to count your out breaths…. Breathing in…breathing out 1…Breathing in…breathing out 2. If you are comfortable, close your eyes and do this practice until we get to the number 20. Don’t worry if get lost; you can begin again, or continue where you dropped off. Remember your mind is trained to wander, you can gently re-direct as many times as needed. That’s the practice!
Thanks for engaging. Come back to this practice anytime. It will be on the website, even if I move the page.
Wishing you all the best through this moment in time.
Wishing you wellness and ease, this moment and on,
I’ve been expanding my programs to meet your groups and organizations needs:
Now includes more discussions on both Race & Gender
DISMANTLING MICROAGGRESSIONS/RESPECTFUL ENGAGEMENT IN THE WORKPLACE
Like sarcasm or passive aggressive language, microaggressions are woven into the fabric of how we communicate consciously, and unconsciously, in and out of the workplace. We witness it in media where it’s okay to be bias of others. We grow up with unconscious bias’s and inherit language learned from our families, schools, and communities that can cause unintentional and intentional harm. Microaggressions wreak havoc on our personal relationships and professional performance; dampening productivity and affecting the bottom line of our organizations; impacting financial success.
This engaging training is designed to help your staff see though their biases to their team members as individuals who are humans, with sensitivities, flaws, and brilliance as they support each other in achieving the goals of the organization.
~ When we know who we are, can be with ourselves, and all that arises within us. When we know each other, we shine! ~ Lev
MEETING THIS MOMENT: Navigating Race in the Workplace
This workshop offers an opportunity to expand on the Unconscious Bias workshop above by providing safe and separate space for POC and white communities to share, process, vision, and resource themselves for a sustainable and productive work experience. We will share resources for staying healthy and productive in the workplace and beyond.
Sustainability Circles for Black employees – This conversation combines my work in restorative justice circles with my mediation training, and leadership models I earned at the Coaches Training Institute. (90-120 minutes each.) In addition, I’m offering workshops for all BIPOC, to discover ways to support each other and also strengthen growth and productivity in the workplace.
Introduction to White Ally-ship – This conversation is for anyone who identifies as white. We will provide a trained and experienced white-ally training to support you in your discoveries and shares. This first meeting is 2 hours, with an option to continue for 4 – 8 weeks to deepen your awareness.

As your coach, here are examples of how I can support you:
- Facilitate the exploration of values, motivations, desires, skills and thought processes to assist you in making real, lasting change.
- Work with you to develop a road map to your goals
- Provide challenges and help with brainstorming

My experience includes working with people interested in changing careers, starting new ventures, creating new habits or practices and just living fuller bigger lives. My clients are entrepreneurs, executives, coaches, artists, students and activists. Some of these folks, like myself may also identity as foster youth, adoptees and/or identify as members of the LBGTQIA+ communities.
Over the past year, I’ve had the honor of helping folks discover and/or deepen their connection with their strengths and abilities to live the life they choose. I also offer more specifically career discovery, strengthening leadership, and entrepreneurial coaching. I also work with those who want to work more with the Law of Attraction using both mindfulness meditation and goal setting as tools.
