Mindful Psychotherapy

Our natural state is wellness. Drawing free breath in rhythm with the earth and all its creatures. Yet many of us feel sick in our souls. Empty and aching, we seek creative bandaids to contain our despair : the frenzied pursuit of money, relationships, sex, achievement, adventure, good works, superhuman productivity. Even health practices may become compulsive activities that do not mend a persistent sense of inner broken-ness.

Mindful Psychotherapy cultivates our inherent ability to be well in the midst of life suffering. It is the process of learning skillful ways to access our healthy nature.

This practice enables us to integrate unwanted feelings and memories, which uniquely shape our characters. We become stronger, clearer, more at peace with our experience of living, suffering included.

This clarity fosters responsibility for our life choices and gives us insight to create a life filled with passion, curiosity and empathy for the world in which we live. Clear intent helps us navigate through difficult times with a resilient sense of purpose and stability.

Standing outside the chaos of our busy minds, we learn to be still again with things as they are, until we re-remember how it was to draw a free breath, in rhythm with our intrinsic nature and with all life.

Change your mind. Change your life.

 I was born upon the prairie, where the wind blew free and there was nothing to break the light of the sun.

I was born where there were no enclosures and where everything drew a free breath.
