Welcome to Real Spirituality

On this website you will find a variety of resources that support psychospiritual integration. Through an array of books, psychotherapy services, ongoing classes and events, and articles, together we explore how to engage a psychological and spiritual journey that is grounded, embodied, radiant, and relationally fulfilling. Whether through writing, psychotherapy, workshops, or psychological training for yoga teachers and practitioners, the aim is always toward the integration of the psychological and spiritual aspects of our experience, as embodied and expressed through all aspects of our lives.

Each week of this 5 module, 30-hour program, will combine psychological and somatic theory and practice, and yoga asana. Read More…

Spiritual work alone does not address many of our deepest psychological knots
and traumas, nor does it provide tools to address our wounds.

My clients are extraordinary men and women around the world – many who have engaged years of their lives on the spiritual path and others who are just beginning – who recognize the need for support to move through a particular period or challenge in their lives, or who wish to engage in a broader process of psychological self-inquiry into areas their spiritual work has not reached.
