Feeling is the best hearing, the best instrument for recording meaning.

ABOUT THE WORK...
My work supports people to recognize and reliably access the innate, creative and healthy power within them and all of life. The intention is to move beyond a narrow, learned sense of reality and transform how we relate with self, others, and the natural world.
All lives are inherently spiritual or mystical. Just as each individual cell of a body carries the code for its entire form, every individual being carries something of the mysterious, unquantifiable force that animates all of life. As we learn to actually feel and perceive the truth of our interconnection with everything, our actions and relations become increasingly informed by this profound understanding.
The framework in which we work together offers lived insights and embodied practices that I've received, lived, and synthesized over the two decades or more.*
“Helen brings the depth of a Jungian approach to her work. She skillfully brings the unseen world into the present where it can become conscious. She helps you dive in deep waters within a safe container.”
C. Sarver | Educator, Healing Professional
"Working with Helen has truly been a catalyst for my own creativity, helping me move through internal blocks that kept me from comfortably (and broadly) sharing my gifts with others. Her attentive presence and penetrating questions draw out my creative expression."
— M. Hamilton | Coach, Author, Facilitator
"So much is opening up for me...and the pace of
my increased awareness and change is remarkable.
My own facilitation is changing as I change.
How fortunate I feel to be on the journey with Helen."
— S. McKeirnan | Artist, Facilitator
