“Symptoms are so, so valuable. And I try to help folks that come in here start to honor the symptoms they are having in their body, and actually pay attention to them because they are guiding us.” (13:55)

“When we are disconnected, that is where we fall into destructive habits and we fill ourselves up with addictions because we don’t have the proper connections that we really need to sustain us.” (19:49)

“If we can just find one or two things that resonate with that person, then we start allowing them to start exploring them a little bit deeper. And that is why the seasonal format works because we are coming back around to it next year.” (27:59)

“That is not disturbing, that’s actually kind of natural. That we grow and develop and change, especially over time or seasonally.” (35:19)

“Love, I believe, is our ultimate medicine. In the tradition in which I sit… we always use Metta Bhavana which is loving-kindness at the end of our session. It is the balm that we have consistent access too, and it elevates us. And it heals us, love, completely.” (43:16)
