“To be vulerable actually means to be present and available for connection.
When celebrating who we’ve been and who we are, we can enrich our experience of past and present by remembering the challenges that had to be met from the viewpoints of those who did back then.
When dreaming of who we can be, we will enhance our creativity in the future by recognizing others who now face the same challenges as in our history – but for whom new and different solutions are needed.

Thank you, Maya – you will be missed!
Allies or Adversaries?
It’s not really an either/or…
Survival plus our personal beliefs continue to present to us the universe as a dualistic choice when it reaches our conscious awareness.

The brain sees “lukewarm”, “grey”, “maybe”; it also sees inclusive patterns and especially new choices.

How often do you hear yourself speaking words that don’t match the internal dialog running in your head? Do you catch yourself saying something to someone, but often thinking something very different? Perhaps you say something to one person in a completely different manner than you say it to someone else. When this does happen, do you believe yourself to be duplicitous or less than authentic? You’re not, and welcome to the human race!

Integrated Awareness is
an innately human set of skills for healing and wholeness through movement, touch, enhanced awareness and changes of consciousness.
