Welcome Home

To You

 “Do not feel lonely, the entire universe is inside you.” – Rumi

My Intention is to

Provide the loving space for people to find, touch, and know that deeper part of oneself, the true essence of who we are. 

To come Home to our Selves.

To use that deep and loving connectedness and Self-compassion to love all parts of ourselves, to create harmony inside and out, and align with creation itself.

To create and Live a life aligned, alive, in touch and in harmony. 

To retreat inwards, to where the whole universe resides...

Joanne Howard

Dick Schwartz, creator of the Internal Family Systems model

“A person who is leading with the Self is easy to identify. Others describe such a person as open, confident, accepting — as having presence. They feel immediately at ease in a Self-led person’s company, as they sense that it is safe to relax and release their own Selves. Such a person often generates remarks such as, “I like him because I don’t have to pretend — I can be myself with him.” From the person’s eyes, voice, body language, and energy, people can tell they are with someone who is authentic, solid, and unpretentious. They are attracted by the Self-led person’s lack of agenda or need for self-promotion, as well as his or her passion for life and commitment to service. Such a person doesn’t need to be forced by moral or legal rules to do the right thing. He or she is naturally compassionate and motivated to improve the human condition in some way because of the awareness that we are all connected.”
