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."

Mindfulness for Judges

November 18 - 21, 2024

Santa Fe, NM


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 and using
that information to respond to the unfolding of our work and lives.

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!
