Welcome to heart as home

a soft place to land, a quiet place to rest, a gentle place to be.

I am so glad you stopped by.

heart as home began in 2013 – and has been the home of my art & craft, movement and meditation, and community care projects ever since.

I value compassion, authenticity, vulnerability, and generosity. I am devoted to the slow life. I am committed to practicing empowering self and community care. My practices reminds me to stay connected to my senses, trust my body, and relate with compassion to myself, others, and the earth. I am grounded in a heartfelt respect for the wisdom of the body, the intelligence of the heart, and the spaciousness of the mind. I am 2SLGBTQIA+ affirming and identified. I am a white guest-settler who resides, with gratitude, in the traditional territory of the Tla’amin Nation, within the qathet Regional District (see land acknowledgement on this site).

While I am on sabbatical from my movement practices, I have turned my focus to art and craft. I offer original needle-felted creatures, painting, collage, and photography – all available on print-on-demand items for now – to brighten your spirit, soothe your soul, and lighten your load.

New: the Superbear Collection!
Superbears are adorable, inspiring, and want to share their loving messages with you. While the original bears have found their way to their forever homes, you can enjoy these adorable creatures on all kinds of beautiful items in your home. Available on mugs, tote bags, postcards, magnets, stickers, apparel, blankets, and much more.

Let’s meet each other where we are at…

One of my most favourite things is holding a space where we can find deep rest and relaxation together. And sharing a space where we wake up together, again and again, in the light of our true nature. May we gather together so that we may recover and replenish ourselves and move into the world more deeply connected to what is truly important, with truth, confidence, and belonging.

Everything is workable.

Big thanks to the earth, my friends and family who sustain me with love and energy, and my teachers and fellow students who teach me about being here, with courage and compassion.

May our practices be of benefit – to ourselves, each other, and the earth.
