Fall Wreath

When I’m off-kilter, I want the easiest, fastest doorway back to an inner equilibrium.  Perhaps you can relate! Here is a Quick Compassion Meditation which you can do in 5-7 minutes.

Sometimes the simplest things, like this fall wreath from a pioneer village I visited last week with the littles, can be our invitation to remember to breathe.

I hope you enjoy.  And share with anyone who could use a reset in their day.

“I don’t trust a lot of people with my heart. Courtney has a very clean, and centered presence. She creates a space where you can be yourself with no judgement, and this is transformational. Courtney reminds me that change is not a linear process. And that I don’t have to be frustrated with myself for what I haven’t been able to work out, on my own. As part of this coaching relationship I have reconnected to the root of myself and to nature and the creative process. I still can get stressed out, but now I feel lighter, freer, and hopeful. My spirit is soaring again, I’m working to live my life again,  and I haven’t felt this way in a long time.” Katrina, Non-Profit Leader, Dallas Texas.

“Coaching with Courtney is like a class you take on yourself with a good instructor. It is a class about you. You find out things you like, and thing you don’t like. You are going to do the work! But it has been wonderful to talk to someone smart, caring, & thoughtful to work through things I get stuck in. It is not always so easy from the inside to see how you are stuck. As a result of our coaching sessions I feel more in control. And when stressful things happen I remember to breathe. I have also been happier. This has been really nice. And more grounded. Meditation has been an unexpected and awesome bonus.” Liena, Publisher, Brooklyn NY.
