Brené Brown, PhD describes wholeheartedness our ability to engage in our lives with authenticity, to cultivate and practice courage and compassion, and embrace all that we are, the beauty and the imperfections. And especially the imperfections as that is where our humanity can be nourished.
Courage + Vulnerability is our path to a wholehearted life
Life is messy. Life is uncertain. And life is beautiful. Our capacity to embrace our life is directly related to our capacity to engage in courage and vulnerability. The path can be scary but through our ability to practice compassion as we venture into building awareness’s, understandings and practices that deeply resonate with us, we begin to open to more joy and ease.
Learn how together we can begin creating this in your life for you.
Living a Wholehearted Resonant Life
Discovering and living in alignment with your deeper truth: Inner wisdom as your guide
Tuning into the wisdom of your mind-body connection can sometimes feel like a bit of magic, like that aha! when something you hear deeply aligns with you, a whole body resonate experience. Other times it can be that quiet ahhh…. that signals this is right for me. You may get the sense that it’s a deeper knowing you have, the right path and it doesn’t need questioning. That doesn’t mean your brain won’t want to question it, but if you can stay with your body and feel that sense of lightness, ease and easy breath that is our guide we’re on the right path.
Mind-Body coaching can guide you
- back into connection with your body, the seat of your wisdom
- to feel, understand and process your emotions
- become aware of how your brain runs sneaky and not so sneaky patterns of pressure and pushing, asking and sometimes demanding perfection in its desire for safety and belonging in a messy and uncertain world
- guidance to connect with your knowing through your inner wisdom, intuition
- practices to support you over the course of your life

Alison Withey & Emily
I work with people that are functioning pretty well in their lives but find themselves in the midst of a change, a challenge or wanting to dig deeper. You may want to dive into:
- Practices for wholehearted living
- Practices for deeper connection and flow with your mind-body system, embodied living
- Relationship with self and others
- Values, understanding and connecting to what resonates within
- Boundaries, why they can be hard and how to befriend them
- Practices for understanding your brain and nervous system, polyvagal mapping
- Navigating a transition such as a separation, divorce or loss, moving through and rebuilding
- Support and easing caregiver stress
- Expand the way you are currently living, connect into life with more presence, ease and intention
In our work together we’ll use talk, guided practices, guided imagery, journaling, collage, coaching tools and between session homework.

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase “each other”
doesn’t make any sense.
The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the doorsill
where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep.” Rumi
