In a world where the noise can be so great and constant, we seldom find the time and space to quiet the mind and body so that we may hear that inner voice...the wise voice which can reconnect who we are, at our core, with what we do or wish to do in the world. Together, we will create the space where individuals or groups are invited to listen deeply and honor that authentic voice, nourishing their lives, their work, and their community.

When Someone Deeply Listens To You

When someone deeply listens to you
it is like holding out a dented cup
you’ve had since childhood
and watching it fill up with
cold, fresh water.
When it balances on top of the brim,
you are understood.
When it overflows and touches your skin,
you are loved.

When someone deeply listens to you
the room where you stay
starts a new life
and the place where you wrote
your first poem
begins to glow in your mind’s eye.
It is as if gold has been discovered!

When someone deeply listens to you
your bare feet are on the earth
and a beloved land that seemed distant
is now at home within you.
