Inner Transformation Creates Authentic Results in the Outer World

Our mission is to support you in looking inward, to know who you are and discover untapped gifts and talents.  We do this by cultivating inner qualities of mindfulness, compassion, self-acceptance and being willing to look at blindspots as the fertile ground.

What We Believe

Mindfulness is Core to Self-Transformation

It takes courage to look at ourselves, and to release our protective armor and social comparison.   When we do this, we can bring our authenticity out into the world.

Freedom Comes From Working With Self-As-Process

Our stories keep us hidden. When we begin to work with ourselves as process, we are able to observe our stories and be more in the present moment.

Misery Ends, Where Self-Acceptance Begins

We are here for a very meaningful experience. By turning inwards, we can gain powerful insights that lead to greater vitality and sovereignty.
