I am a mindfulness and meditation guide for organizations, groups and individuals. My offerings range from weekly sessions and multipart courses to weekend workshops and longer retreats, catered to clients’ needs.
“Patricia is incredibly skilled at holding space for people to show up as their whole selves. People new to mindfulness find her sessions relatable and accessible, and more experienced practitioners learns ways to deepen their practice. Patricia grounds her teaching in the traditional origins of meditation, incorporates neuroscience evidence, and uplifts the teachings of BIPOC thinkers.” ~ Cori Racela, Deputy Director, Western Center on Law & Poverty
“Patricia is the most amazing mindfulness guide. She relates to you with so much empathy, kindness and gentleness. She reminds you that you are part of a greater system, that we are all interconnected.” ~ Savita Bailur
I guide on topics like: grounding on the earth; finding our refuges; RAIN practice; releasing from clinging; stillness, non-doing and being; equanimity; you are enough and non-perfectionism; wise intention and commitment; meeting uncertainty; planting seeds of freedom; embodied boundaries; mindful communication; asking for help and learning to receive; self-compassion; mindful meetings; deep relaxation and sound-vibration meditation; impermanence, non-attachment and letting go; grief; gratitude; joy; love; and more!
I studied mindful awareness practices at the Mindful Awareness Research Center at the University of California, Los Angeles. I have deepened my learning and practice through many trainings and retreats at meditation centers and Thich Nhat Hanh monasteries in the US and Europe. I have gratefully received the wisdom of wonderful teachers, including many in the Plum Village and Insight Meditation traditions. I continue to learn from diverse teachers, sangha-community, our kindred beings, and the earth.
While anchored in mindfulness teachings, I draw from all of my wisdom domains to provide guidance that is compassionate, aware and responsive to what’s happening in the world. I offer equity pricing and a free first consultation. To discuss how I can support you or organization, please contact me. Gratitude.
