We live in a time of great change. While we may at times feel as though the issues in the world are too large for us to tackle alone, these issues are powerfully linked and affected by the daily intentions we set, the emotions we cultivate, the words we speak, and the actions we take. What we see happening in the world is a reflection ~at least on some level~ of our own inner world.

Creating a world that is balanced and healthy is intricately linked to our own health and balance. If we desire peace, we must cultivate peace inside. If we value inclusiveness, we must be inclusive in our hearts, words and actions. If we desire understanding, meaning and joy, we must find ways to flow through various experiences in life with a sense of joy, meaning and understanding.

This is where true power exists and where we can shift our experience in life: within ourselves.

Over the years, I have lived many walks of life. I have been a family member, student, competitive athlete, business consultant, self defense instructor, entrepreneur, business owner, executive coach, leadership team facilitator, rape crisis counselor, shamanic healer and soul coach. These experiences have given me many opportunities to apply subtler -unseen yet sensed- energies practically into our lives so that their effects can be felt, experienced, lived, and seen eventually.

There is a field of energy that runs through all living matter. In fact, most matter is mainly energy. The energetic dimension is what connects us all. The physical is an extension of the the energetic. This dimension has been utilized by ancient medicine men and women to modern quantum physicists.

So how do we apply energetic principles to our lives?

Each person is unique and we each come with an inherent potential and a specific purpose. This purpose is supported by an infrastructure ~which includes our brain, body, senses, and intuition~ and the ability to choose which actions to take moment by moment. These aspects form our individual navigation system. However, a navigation system cannot function properly unless it has been loaded with helpful, easy to navigate, and healthy maps.

Helping individuals discover their own energetic map to life, activating their inherent healthy potential, initiating the next part of their soul’s journey, and harmonizing the way they walk on this Earth, are the areas that I care about.

It has been my experience that when we activate our true and healthy potential, know what our gifts and talents are, offer our gifts to the world in meaningful ways, and utilize our navigation system cleanly and safely for all living beings involved, we are able to live a life that is personally meaningful, elevates those we touch, and offers solutions for whatever challenges we face in our current time.

Each person completes a particular facet in the cosmos. For a healed and peaceful world, we need each facet -each living being- to be whole and healed, expressing their natural gifts and talents meaningfully, with a sense of joy in the heart. It is in this ever refined expression of our natural, healthy and healed selves that we elevate ourselves, our loved ones, our communities, and bring harmony to the world.

I feel passionate about assisting others to walk their authentic journey in meaningful and valuable ways, embodying and expressing their true potential in order to live into a world that is natural, healthy, harmonious and balaced.

I offer my gifts to those who find their way to me. If you decide to work with me, please know that it is my intention that you will live consciously and increasingly aligned with your heart and your healthy vision for our world.

I send you blessings of Joy, Beauty and Wellbeing on the journey ahead,

The Map

The Path of Power (POP) helps you create your own authentic map to life. It includes a comprehensive set of personal aspects and relationships we must tend to in order to create a healthy, harmonious, peaceful and meaningful human existence. I describe and utilize the POP Map in the Path of Power Mentorship and Self Defense Journey, as well as in my programs for veterans and couples:

Impeccability ~ Staying unwaveringly committed in our actions to one’s truth and healed vision for the world, even if it requires change, a letting go of learned beliefs or material things, or a reorganizing of relationships, and even if oneself does not seem to benefit immediately from this pursuit of staying aligned with one’s inner truth so long as there is learning, healing and healthy growth involved.

A Note on Endorsements

For many years I have refrained from posting testimonials or endorsements on my website because each person’s experience is completely unique. One person’s experience of working with me will be entirely different from the next person’s experience. Yet, I have been asked many times to open up and list endorsements or testimonials on my website, so I am following that guidance. I hope that listing them is of service to you.

For a list of endorsements, please click here.

Next Step

Each person and group is unique. Therefore, I tailor the content of my offerings specifically to those who work with me. My group sizes are small, and my private sessions are limited to 1-2 individuals. I stay away from social media as much as I can so I can be fully present with those I serve.

If you’d like to begin your work, please contact me.

Please keep in mind that I do not send out newsletters. I offer my services to those who ask.
