cultivating connection || grounding relationships


Connection informs our every thought, feeling and action. 


Connection is the base of belonging.


Belonging is survival.


This is a space where we are learning to breathe ourselves through & beyond fear based programming & forgive into love. Together we are reflecting connection & teaching ourselves how to Safely shift into belonging.



The presence &/or absence of Safety has a direct effect on our capacity for connection & belonging.

Awareness of Safety & Lack-of-Safety is integral to the work of cultivating connective relationships with ourselves & those we love. This is why we've developed The Safety Wheel™.
