Would You Agree?

Conscious movement can not only be a shortcut to mindfulness, but a path of deep meditation and prayer.

When I hold in awareness the inner world of my moving body (sensation, breath, flow, texture, feeling, image) without agenda or expectation, receiving the moment to moment unfolding of the experience, I may fall through the veil of everyday consciousness into a state of expanded awareness accompanied by a felt sense of connectedness, wholeness, and spiritual belonging.

Personal Transformation for Professional Growth

It has become clear to me (via my experience and students' reports over the last twenty some years) that awareness of inner process can catalyze profound shifts toward alignment with the deeper desires and dreams for our lives.
