Self-Compassion Practice


As a lifelong learner, I appreciate learning various meditation techniques. I am open to new and exciting approaches to a practice that has graced my life since the age of 16. I hope to continue to inspire others to embrace sitting on the cushion and taking the time for peace. I know that there is a desperate need right now for a calmer way to live in our seemingly chaotic world.  I have had many tragedies in my life, and I know meditation is what continued to help me to heal over the years. I am committed to assisting you in bringing the same transformation into your life so you may experience a steady calm and sense of peace.

Deb's authenticity, genuineness, and commitment to a life centered on living meditatively shines froth in every meditation or body of work she is guided to provide. I highly recommend anything she creates, life-transforming!

I am on my 29th day of meditation with your class. For my entire adult life, I have tried meditation and was never able to do more than 2 or 3 days in a row.

I opted for the personal meditation instruction and I am so glad I did! It has made such a huge difference in my life to have Deb's gentle teaching of the techniques. My life has changed and I have less anxiety and am profoundly happy. Thanks!

Have Questions?


I've always said that lovingkindness and compassion are inevitably woven through meditation practice even if the words are never used or implied, no matter what technique or method we are using.
