Welcome to this offering of inspiration and support to cultivate a mindful and compassionate life. I am so glad you found me!
I began my meditation journey in 2015 out of desperation to thrive instead of survive. It felt as though I had lost my voice long ago. Whose life had I been living? I was stuck on the treadmill to do more, to be more, and yet never achieving enough to feel content or satisfied; I knew deep within that this was unsustainable. This longing for relief from chronic stress and perfectionism, and to live with joy and peace led me down a path of what I call heartfulness, the integration of compassion and mindfulness into daily life. I embarked courageously on an inner healing/growth journey that has beautifully shifted the way in which I engage with life. In an effort to share these heartfulness practices, I have become a trained mindfulness meditation and compassion teacher, and a trained mentor supporting others along their heartfulness journey – to free the mind, awaken the heart and trust in themselves.
Our lives are interconnected, so our inner work is always in service of the collective. We do not walk alone. This is the reason this site is called Growing Our Voice rather than “your voice.” It is my hope that we relinquish the belief in our separation and find the courage to connect with a compassionate heart. This is how we ALL flourish. Click here to read about the Guiding Principles: courage, compassion, connection.
