About Grace

I have been blessed beyond imagining with a lifetime of learning the art of conscious living and leadership. Through out my journey, I have also experienced the mysterious touch of grace over and over; that invisible hand that heals, uplifts and bestows gifts beyond any and all imagining.

It is my passion and purpose to share the wealth that has filled my life with YOU and to support you in also living in happiness, harmony and deep fulfillment.

BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD,  CARE FOR ALL CONNECTIONS,  LIVE IN GOD”S GRACE are the pillars of my life and are a daily balancing act of self-responsibility, consciously co creating with all of Life, and being blessed and guided by the Divine Source Within.

I have had the privilege of sharing these practices with people from around the world in both their personal and professional lives.  From teenagers just getting started in life to seniors preparing to die, from couples longing for true heart-felt intimacy in their relationships to singles on a profound, soul-searching path of awakening, from beginners to healers and leaders in the field of transformation, from homemakers to boardroom power brokers, I have witnessed first hand the amazing, life altering changes that happen when even simple practices like breathing consciously and listening from the heart become a way of life.

The leaders of our world have a special place in my heart as they are being challenged in extraordinary ways to help guide our businesses, governments, places of education and worship to new, more inclusive, flexible and heart centered cultures and practices.  The global community is changing at the speed of light and those at the helm have a pivotal role to play in the direction we are all going.   I am committed to supporting those of you who are called to these all important positions and encourage you to explore my leadership coaching and retreats page.

The leaders of tomorrow, our precious children, are the greatest inspiration for the work I offer.   More and more children are conveying to us both the overwhelming distress of coping with the imbalance in our world and also the brilliant potential of what it means to be human at this stage in our evolution.

I am guided to offer meditation to you dear children, and consciousness coaching to your parents, teachers and community members so that we may all be the mentors and guides that you need us to be.   You are the light of our world and the bringers of a hope filled tomorrow.  May you and your families receive all the love and support you could possibly need to flourish and contribute the mastery you have brought with you.

I live on the lovely island of Maui as well as the Pacific Northwest. Playing, hiking, swimming and simply being in nature are my favorite ways to be in JOY.

If you are in search for some support in your life, whether it be a simple session to help in re aligning with your center, or some coaching or classes to develop and refine your conscious life practices or even a custom designed retreat to renew, restore and create breakthroughs in your life or work, please explore my pages and posts.

May the blessings of love and grace touch you today.

Aloha,    Grace
