Designed for creative types, this online work provides a "chrysalis," or container for growth, to accompany and guide you into change. There's very little help in our light-speed culture for the internal reflection and very real labor required to grow ourselves. Research has shown the power of regular dips into mindfulness to catalyze major mental shifts. So if you intuit some shift is imminent, or you are primed for expansion, this course provides a concrete, efficient structure. 6-minute video teachings offer practical gems from different wisdom traditions, prompts for reflection, snippets of poetry, guided meditations, self-care tips, and fresh techniques to export into everyday life. The progression is carefully designed to move from the internal cocoon in which to connect with your center, to the proverbial wing-strengthening required to take new patterns and skills out into the world, to breaking out as new. You have the freedom to choose your own pace, with the option to add the companion course, a grab-bag of meditation techniques. Check out the introductory video today!

Katy Hawkins, Ph.D, teaches wonder, joy, and sanity in Philadelphia. Private sessions, public classes, retreats, and special workshops help students move into their own wholeness by freeing up body and mind. Katy's teaching combines a spirit of play with challenges to drop down into deeper states of being. We all have a handful of stale patterns in our emotional, intuitive, creative and conceptual lives that we're better off without. Students are offered gentle guidance in exploring these stuck spots to break gridlock. Katy's fresh fusions of spiritual insight with physical and meditation practices are peppered with spontaneous moments of poetry and humor. She draws from a storehouse of rich sources - literary, philosophical, and sacred - that cut across faith traditions. Co-creating a safe space in which to stretch body and spirit, students connect with their own inner knowing to come away clearer, grounded, and more joyful.
