My intention is to love and serve. I believe 100% in empowerment; there is nothing that I share that the client will not learn to do for themselves. I do not wish to act as a crutch but instead a stepping-stone. My clients learn quickly that I do very little, yet what they find within themselves is quite amazing. We already are what we are seeking. Love, approval and appreciation can be felt from the inside. My gift to my clients is simply shining the light on parts of themselves that may have been hidden for some time.
My offerings are Dana based. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Dana means giving. The below pricing are suggested donations. Your donation covers my time, supplies, renting the room as well as covering those that will pay less. Your act of generosity is significant. The Buddha taught that all of the beautiful qualities of heart and mind begin with generosity: Generosity dissolves the separation of self and other… Giver receiver and gift intertwined.
You can meditate! I promise. People often tell me, “I can’t meditate”. Usually they are thinking about concentration or “stopping their thoughts”. These are misconceptions.
With the right instruction you will reap the long list of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual benefits that come along with a consistent meditation practice. Did you know that meditators are 12 years younger physiologically compared to their chronological age? Crazy right?
Private meditation instruction is my favorite thing to teach. Why? Because I may be a bit of a perfectionist, and with a 1-1 situation we can go to the depths, answer all your questions and the results are always amazing. The mind is a deep, vast landscape, and I will be there to customize a program that fits exactly what you need, with your lifestyle, challenges and make up.
Mindfulness meditation is a 2,500 year old practice originating in Buddhism. Yet, at its core, it is a secular practice free of dogma and religious overtones. Instead it focuses purely on the universal human experience of reality. The meditation practice uses awareness to look at our daily experiences with a non-judgmental spaciousness, giving rise to relaxation and inner peace even amidst life’s biggest challenges.
Mindfulness is the practice of allowing everything to be “as it is” with full non- judgmental acceptance. We are able to accept whatever arises and investigate our experiences with neutrality instead of blindly reacting and launching into our habitual patterns. Every moment becomes new, and along with this freshness comes an innate compassion, stillness and settling calm.
This is why mindfulness is such a powerful tool when dealing with trauma, stress, anxiety, addiction, and basic suffering of the mind. Without a tool to separate ourselves from the actual experience, it’s difficult to gain a larger perspective, to look from the outside in. Mindfulness gives us that perspective, mindfulness is that tool.

“Cayce is a mindfulness Yoda whose kind soul and calming presence can quiet the most anxious mind. For years, I’ve tried to meditate on my own but always felt like I was doing it “wrong.” As a recent cancer survivor, I now recognize the importance ofstillness and calm to my overall healing, so mindfulness meditation has become a priority. Cayce and I have been meditating on Skype for months and it has truly helped calm the storm. He has taught me that, “sitting in the quiet is the path. There’s nothing to reveal. It’s the path and the destination.” I am truly grateful that the gift of Cayce appeared when he did. “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.”
– Rebecca E., Cancer Survivor
“ After sessions with Cayce I can better face unpleasant thoughts without trying to bury them. I have been better equipped to handle the stress of this sometimes chaotic world and experience living with a new awareness.
