Dialogue with the Body and Spirit: Reconnecting with Your True Self to Release Tension and Address Areas of Dis-ease.
April 28 in Amherst MA- location TBA
I am so inspired from a workshop that I recently taught in conjunction with Amy Sundari Finlay, and I wanted to let you know that, because it was so well received, we are going to be offering a fuller version of the material this spring, and it will be open to a broader audience.
The workshop will be geared toward folks who have goals and aspirations, either in terms of their health and well being, or in terms of their life direction, and are finding themselves not moving ahead as they had hoped. We will be engaging the creative un-consious in conjunction with the body as tools to open up our stuck places and tap into the gems of wisdom that we are carrying there. We have the firm belief that those parts of the self that appear to be holding you back need to be held with compassion and love. It will also include some introductory ideas from psychosynthesis, which is the very rich field of psychology that I studied as the basis of my coaching program.
I will be sending out more information in my newsletter, and you can get on the mailing list here:
Untangle the things that are getting in your own way so that your system can hum itself back to a healthy weight!
What do you need?
There is a profound connection between the body and the psyche and by accessing the creative unconsious you can get the information that you need to to find out what is behind those stuck places and to release the tension. You need to be able to listen with compassion and an open non-judgemental acceptance to what is really going on, and then make space for the transformation that can happen when you give yourself what you really need.
I would love to help!
Let me tell you a little bit about my background so you can get a sense of me.
My two years of training in psychosynthesis transformational life coaching gives me an amazing set of tools and a depth of understanding how the human psyche works. It is an approach that values the whole person, with the belief that even the challenging parts of the self are essential to the whole, and with some care can actually be a help rather than a challenge.
I also studied massage therapy at the National Holistic Institute where I gained a solid grounding in health and wellness. I have a good understanding of a broad range of diet approaches and can work with you to refine and support strategies you have.
How does it work?
I help you work at a core level. This means, for example, when we work with things like emotional eating (that urge towards the treats), we will be working directly with triggers that create your cravings. The exciting thing about this is that usually, as we are doing the work, we are making positive changes in the ways you interact with folks, how you move in the world, and how you see yourself and others.
In individual coaching sessions, we work with 4 areas:
Most clients meet with me over the phone, using Skype or Zoom, for one 50-minute session once a week. While the coaching can be very helpful immediately, it takes about four weeks to get a full picture of what is going on and how I can be most helpful.
How much does it cost?
My fee is $75/hour. If we work on Zoom, I will also record the sessions so that you can listen to them later.
Because it usually takes about four sessions to get a full picture of what is going on and how I can be of most help, I offer new clients a discount when they sign up for four sessions at once.

Taproot is about having a strong root reaching deep into the dark rich soil of our interiors and the collective source of creative insight and feeding our most beautiful illuminated selves- the stems, leaves, flowers of our waking selves. Taproot is about honoring the unknown, willfully reaching into the darkness and trusting that we can find what we need there for nourishment, insight and growth. It is about taking authorship of our own processes of growth and change and it is about listening deeply to the needs, impulses, desires, creative insights of our deepest most essential selves. It is about being held in community as we delve into this profound work. It is about the radical act of love and patience and listening and holding as a way to actively engage our own healing potential.
