A beautiful place for personal growth

Meditations | Retreats | Workshops

Our intent is to give you resources and tools to help navigate through life's challenges and to better enjoy the journey of life.

  • Learn a new way of being with suffering that decreases unnecessary hardship.
  • Understand our inherit critical nature and how to make peace with it.
  • Stop believing you're alone in your suffering and find power in connection.

You will learn the same tools I use. You will break out of living in default. You will change.

Why Am I Here? Instant Access Meditation

This guided meditation will take you on a journey to uncover what you are truly seeking in your life. What has brought you to this place of discovery? How can you find the shift you are looking for? When we take time to ponder these questions, we often discover what we started out to resolve isn’t what we truly needed after all. Mindful self-compassion can help us sort through these complex thoughts and emotions. Let us help you find what you truly need.

I looked forward to the MSC course each week.  I learned so many wonderful skills and practices.  When we were done I was left wanting more.  I couldn't have asked for better teachers than Jodi and Erica.  They are so knowledgeable about self compassion and the practices.  I think everyone needs to take a course like this on self compassion.

It is well worth your time!

The concepts I learned from the Mindful Self Compassion course have changed and will continue to change my life. I think I’m only beginning to see it’s impact. 

Jodi and Erica are wonderful instructors. They are both so kind, compassionate, honest, open, gentle, and accepting. Throughout the course they responded to everyone’s input with respect and gratitude. Jodi and Erica are perfect women to help you learn to love yourself and your life more fully.
