We like to think of coaching as a “solution session.” It is different from traditional counseling or psychotherapy as “coaching” honors that the client has the answers that they are looking for within them. We facilitate a process that guides the client to access THEIR truth and execute it into action. We hold space for the client to find safety to explore perceived limitations to release and move forward to the life that is desired.

Kirtan is a Sanskrit word meaning “praise” or “eulogy.” It's a form of call-and-response chanting involving mantras or hymns. The chanting is carried out alongside instruments, such as cymbals, harmonium or drums. Kirtan is part of an ancient form of Yoga known as Bhakti, or the Yoga of Devotion. It is the calling, the crying, the reaching across infinite space - digging into the heart’s deepest well to touch and be touched by the Divine Presence. Kirtan is for all people. There are no masters of kirtan, no experts, no teachers, no advanced students, no beginners.
The practice itself is the teacher, guiding us to ourselves. There is no right or wrong way to sing kirtan. In a group, gathering with many who carry their stories, we come together, our voices finding each other until our focus becomes unified. We lose some of the separation, melt some of the hard boundaries, and call out together. All that matters is the spirit, the feeling.
Don’t worry about what you sound like, feel whatever you feel, have no expectations, no inhibitions. And finally, kirtan is an offering, a gift to the great One who has given us everything, and to whom we can give nothing in return but our loving remembrance. To open fully to kirtan, to the singing of the divine Name, is to know this sweetest form of bliss.

Emotions such as fear, anger, grief, and many others can negatively affect us long after the original event that caused them. When our body fails to “let go” of these emotions we can find ourselves with unexplained aversions, self-sabotaging behaviors, destructive beliefs, phobias, and many chronic physical problems.
Neuro-Emotional Technique (N.E.T.) is a mind-body technique that uses a methodology of finding and removing neurological imbalances related to the physiology of unresolved stress.
N.E.T. is a tool that can help improve many behavioral and physical conditions. N.E.T. can help you identify and let go of “stuck” emotional patterns and physical pain that has an emotional component. For some people, the notion that emotions can get stuck in our bodies is a new, and maybe challenging, idea. There is, however, substantial clinical and experimental evidence to support that this is exactly what happens.
Emotions are as much a part of being human as breathing. With breathing, for every inspiration there is an expiration. A certain flow must be maintained to promote health and well-being.
The same is true of emotions. The problem is that sometimes our emotions do not flow, but rather get stuck in our bodies. When this happens, we often experience pain and dysfunction.
Just as chronic patterns of negative emotion can be programmed into our bodies, they can also be programmed out. This is what Neuro-Emotional Technique (N.E.T.), developed by Dr. Scott Walker, proposes to do. Through the use of simple muscle response testing and directed questioning, disturbances in the energetics of the body and mind can be corrected.
What is paint pouring? It’s a free-form painting method that uses acrylic paint and pouring medium to create a painting with rich, vibrant swirls and cells of color. No paint brushes or art experience is needed! Paint pouring offers a fun way to create your very own masterpiece on canvas based on the colors that you like and select during the experience. The colors you select are mixed with a pouring medium and then they are poured into a cup creating different layers. This cup is then placed on the canvas and the paint is gently guided to move, covering the canvas. We then watch and wait to see what shows up... and what appears is always a surprise!
Paint pouring is a hands-on experience in the art of “letting go.” We guide the process, yet it is your creation, and we clean up the mess. All supplies are included to create two, 8X10 pieces of art. The finished results are never the same and always surprising…just like life!
Polarity is an ancient practice that uses the body’s energy, prana, or chi to balance out the physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional bodies.

The practitioner accesses places where the body may be having pain, or discomfort and work to release blockages that are being stored.
Reiki is an ancient healing art that facilitates deep relaxation. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese words Rei meaning “Universal Life” and Ki meaning “life force energy”, “Prana”, or “chi”. The holistic approach of Reiki is Universal life force energy channeled into another person for the purpose of healing. This energy is based on Universal love and goes where it is needed to stimulate the innate healing ability of the body. This technique is primarily applied to the main 7 energy centers or Chakras, either hands on or with hovering hands.
Sound healing is one of the oldest and most natural forms of healing. Everything in this world is energy and essentially vibration. It uses the power of sound to restore one’s mind, body and spirit back to a state of balance.
The harmonic vibrations from the instruments have a deep penetrating effect on the receiver, promoting healing and well-being. The sound waves from the instruments create harmonic resonance that entrains the brain to move into the deeper brain wave frequencies. Entrainment synchronizes our fluctuating brainwaves by providing a stable frequency which the brainwave can attune to. By using rhythm and frequency, we can entrain our brainwaves and it then becomes possible to down-shift our normal beta state (normal waking consciousness) to alpha (relaxed consciousness), and even reach theta (meditative state) and delta (sleep; where internal healing can occur).
As human beings, we are comprised mainly of liquid and these vibrations deeply penetrate our bodies, moving through our tissues and organs. This is not just an auditory experience, it’s like receiving a full body sound massage! The sound resonates directly into our cellular memory releasing blockages and creating a profound sense of peace and relaxation. It’s a pathway to meditation, without knowing how to meditate. The sounds act as the focal point, reducing and eliminating mind chatter, leading to a release of deep rooted tensions and emotional blocks. Many people emerge from the experience feeling lighter, more in balance, refreshed, and rejuvenated.
