A 4-Week Self-Guided foundations in mindfulness & embodiment program $197 (USD)
why i created this program
The very simple answer is this: mindfulness, embodiment and awareness building practices CHANGED MY LIFE. I am someone who has experienced a host of early life trauma events, received multiple mental illness diagnoses, and feared that the momentum of all that early life trauma would negatively impact my life as a parent. And parenting WAS the greatest wake up call I could have received; instilling in me as well a sense of URGENCY to do the work of unlearning much of the learned behavior I had as a consequence of some difficult early life experiences.
I have an advanced 12-week program that does a deep dive into this unlearning process, but this program is focused on helping people start where they are to build a foundation of mindfulness, and establish a regular practice in the process. Engaging with these practices was the first important step I needed to take in order to find more calm, centeredness and increased nervous system capacity so that I could take on some of the more advanced work.
I’ve been teaching on the foundational concepts in mindfulness & embodiment for several years; and have experienced their profound influence in my own life. I’m now making those teachings available to others in this 4-week self-study program.
So, I have a few questions for you…
Are you someone who struggles to feel at home in your body, or at ease in your life?
Do you struggle with a “monkey mind”, negative thinking and endless worrying?
Do you struggle to feel present and not so reactive?
Are you a mom who has a relatively solid foundation already, who’s committed to becoming more self-aware, but who wants to learn more about and adopt a rule by love approach to parenting?
I’m that mama, too, and I have just the program for you! And it’s called…
The 4-week mindfulness & embodiment foundations program
In this 4-week self-study program, you’ll learn about an approach to being in relationship to your children that can revolutionize the dynamic between you and them.
The rule by love approach to parenting is based on one principle idea
…and that is…sometimes the less we do, the more influence we wind up having, and the more positive the outcome. And what is birthed from that is more ease and joy that we experience in the process. The rule by love approach is about taking the path of least resistance in a positive sense, believing that, like water flows easily and effortlessly around objects in its path, the softest approach can overcome the hardest of objects.
This a process. An orientation. A philosophy and a way and an approach to life in general. Applied to our parenting, we discover more joy and playfulness in the process, as we also learn more about ourselves and our children.
The rule by love approach is for mamas who ask themselves the question: how do I both foster autonomy and authenticity in my child while still providing them with the guidance, structure and boundaries they need to find their way in the world.
In many ways this is a radical approach to parenting, and to life, that teaches us to TRUST that how we nurture the soil will determine the path that unfolds before our feet. The rule by love approach is about trusting ourselves, trusting our children, and trusting life itself. The consequence for our kids is an immeasurable sense of freedom and authenticity.

She’s had a personal practice that began more than 20 years ago, and has been leading groups into greater embodiment, mindfulness and self-awareness for the past several years. She takes a unique biopsychosocial approach to guiding women and mothers ready to embody their wisdom, strength, and vitality to make positive changes.
She’s committed to becoming the author of her own experience, and helping create an environment for her children in which they feel both a sense of safety and a foundation within the container she provides, and a sense of curiosity to explore the world for themselves and find their own path.
