You are enough.

Your heart is the size of the ocean. Go find the gem hidden in your depths.

 Hello, I'm Yvonne!

My passion is to explore and learn – to explore and learn about the world, life, people, myself – and to support others to do the same.

Life is the “full catastrophe” (Jon Kabat-Zinn) – joys and sorrows. I believe living this full catastrophe, every moment of it, is what it means to be human – experiencing and being with all that life presents to you.

"I cannot make you happy but I can support you in the creation of your own happiness."

This four-day program is an opportunity to pause from the many complexities of being a judge and find some space to breathe and reflect. It is a practice of learning to pay attention to our thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations and acknowledging whatever is present.

Take a breath and step back so that
you can see clearly.

What a life changing experience it was!  I, too, have meditated every day since.  Every night at bedtime and most mornings.  The change I have experienced is amazing.  I'm always sharing with people the benefits of meditation and sharing how it has improved the quality of my life.  Priceless!
