Transforming Ourselves - Our Philosophy, Focus and Services

Welcome to Transforming Ourselves

I offer both Online, Phone and In Person Services - Mindfulness Spiritual Coaching & Counseling, and Nature-Based, Conscious Living Workshops, Courses & Retreats

Greetings. My journey as a counselor began some 34 years ago when I had my first awakening. It is here I connected deeply with both spirit and the earth and started a path of self discovery and mindfulness. I have a degree in communications and graduate studies in conflict resolution, counseling and peace studies. I am an author of 3 books and write regularly online. I have studied extensively all of the world’s spiritual traditions, various alternative spiritual practices, as well as metaphysics, energy medicine, and new thought philosophies. I have additional training in shamanic and earth spirituality as well as extensive work in meditation and mindfulness. All of this diverse background gives me a solid foundation for helping you on your journey.

As a Coach and Counselor I come to you offering various tools and techniques of self-awareness, self-discovery and healing. I focus on your individual needs and adapt my sessions to what feels right for you. Each person is unique and it is important for me both to honor that and find the best tools for your growth.

My Online and In-Person workshops, courses and retreats are focused on various time honored mindfulness and spiritual tools as well as new paradigm soul-based awakening and awareness philosophies.

I offer 4 main areas of discovery, exploration and healing –  I offer online and in person courses, workshops and retreats as well as personal coaching and counseling. My work with you is heart-centered and soul-based, with your healing and growth as my primary goal. Please explore my website  for more info on what could help you on your journey.

My Focus and Philosophy

Mindfulness and Heart Centered Service to others is my number one goal and philosophy. Being a Heart Centered Coach & Counselor means I am here to help you achieve a sense of well-being and help the larger world find balance and harmony. My work is based on love, non-violence, integrity and honesty, where how I operate in our larger world goes hand-in-hand with my need for income. Changing our economic system is part of our transformation. I balance my need for income with my dedication to providing free valuable information to help transform your life. I strive to serve you on the leading edge of conscious thought. I am here to help you with mindfulness and compassion.

Well-Being and Personal Transformation is about exploring and nurturing all four parts of yourself – Mind, Body, Spirit & Emotions – it is important to find proper balance and harmony in each of these areas. I use the model of the circle or the wheel-often referred to as the “medicine wheel” – to help us explain the connection between Mind, Body, Spirit & Emotion. The circle has been used for thousands of years in almost every culture to help explain these relationships. Science has also valued the importance of the circle in explaining many issues and relationships. It symbolizes balance and harmony. It also is non-hierarchical in nature. Please view my diagram The Four Parts of Ourselves for more information on this philosophy.

Connect with Source Energy and Spirit – There is an important 5th Element that should be discussed. This can be defined as the Universal Energy Source. To name a few this energy is also called Ether, Source Energy or in a spiritual context – Divine Spirit, Creator, God or Goddess to some – the terminology or focus doesn’t really matter in this context. What is important is to acknowledge and be aware that there is energy everywhere. We are made up of energy and we are connected to a larger universal energy source. This has been scientifically proven. It has also been discussed over the ages by many great spiritual teachers. Whatever your specific beliefs it is essential for your personal well-being and for the well-being of the world to find a personal way to connect to this larger energy.

Connect with the Earth – The earth is living system and we are part of it. Many of us call her Mother Earth. Connecting to the living earth is essential to our well-being and transformation. Nature provides us with life, beauty, important tools of reflection and reminders of cooperation and balance. We also honor the earth by being aware, conscious and walking lightly.

Learn To Be Love in Action – Non-Violence and Conscious Living is a way of life. It is essential that you learn to incorporate these philosophies into your day to day life. I offer many books, articles, videos and resources to educate you in this area.
