Philosophy/Teaching Style

Someone once said of my teaching, You don’t teach levels, you teach depth. That probably describes best what I do.

My philosophy as a teacher is simple:  you are already good at being you.  My goal is to help you see yourself more complete.  Too many people have been jeopardized by well-meaning teachers who have killed/stifled tender spirits.

It happened to me.  Because of that I stupidly believed that I could never be an artist.  Imagine what a different life I would have today had I followed that well-meaning individual.

It is your vision that I want to encourage.  Your “creativity” – not mine.

In Pablo Casals amazing words, “You are a marvel…You are unique.  In all the years that have passed there has never been another like you….You may become a Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven.  You have the capacity for anything.”

I hope to inspire and reignite your creativity so that you will want to keep producing. To my mind, that is what will bring you the greatest joy and satisfaction. Also, I want you to understand that you, as a highly sensitive person, are gifted with “super-powers” that non-highly sensitives miss out upon.  Sound exciting? It is!

When selecting any teacher/mentor/guide, please choose the right one — one whose work you love and whose personality and style fit your current and/or future vision.

Hoping you can join us.
