The Bodhi Bridge
~ A Foundation for Awakening ~
“What the world needs more than anything are Bodhisattvas, active servants of peace & possibility…
We need bodhisattva lawyers, artists, politicians, doctors, economists, teachers and engineers, all working
tirelessly (better yet, joyfully!) for the enlightenment of themselves and others.”
Our Mission is two-fold:
We awaken and illuminate the Divine Potential in humanity to create thriving lives of grace, ease, harmony, inspiration, and right relationship ~ from the inside out & the outside in. And…
We address the Opportunities, Needs, and Issues that arise on the path of conscious service, leadership, and awakening.
We do this by doing One Thing. We just do it many ways.
We equip motivated individuals, groups, organizations, and communities with the transformational teachings, tools, practices, and resources that empower them to live in their Authentic/Higher Self, navigate change, and create thriving and fulfilling lives.
We blend modern science, ancient wisdom, and innovative approaches to change lives for the better.
Changing Times call for innovative measures anchored in ancient wisdom, modern science balanced by grounded spirituality, and conscious, creative, and effective approaches that benefit humanity (and the planet) on multiple levels.
Our trainings, programs, mentorships, and services do just this. Our work is holistic, integrative, interdisciplinary & consciousness-based in nature, and is designed to meet the unique needs of individuals and communities alike. We offer:
Private & Group Mentorships * Trainings * Workshops * Retreats * 1:1 Private Sessions * Events * On-Line Programs
