This is a powerful time. With old patterns disrupted, new possibilities are opening and change is happening quickly. Now is the time to reimagine and recreate our lives, work, and relationships in ways that uplift us all.

Introduction to Energy Patterns

Discover a path back to your own resourcefulness.

Saturday-Sunday, August 19-20 in Berkeley, CA

Saturday: 9 am-5 pm, Sunday: 9 am-3 pm

Do you find yourself overwhelmed, overwhelmed, or shut down in certain situations? Do you notice yourself having the same unhelpful interactions with people, or responding to challenges in ways that don’t serve? Does your presence have the impact you want?

It turns out that our bodies have learned ways—patterns—of responding to big energy (positive or negative) and are enacting those self-protective patterns all the time, often with an impact we don’t intend.

Becoming aware of these patterns helps us regain the power of our full presence, giving us greater agency and resourcefulness in challenging situations. They show us our own path back to being more grounded, centered, and less reactive in high-energy situations. As a result, we feel more relaxed and our interactions and communication are more successful.

How this workshop will help you…

In this playful two-day session facilitated by Grace Boda and Joy Reichart we will look at five subtle energy patterns. Through dialogue, partner work and embodiment exercises, you will learn about each pattern and begin to identify which are your “go-tos.” Importantly, you will learn a practice of energetic “basics” you can use right away to help you stay anchored, oriented and coherent when your patterns begin to arise.

I work with leaders, entrepreneurs, and creatives who are contributing to the renewal of our collective lives by:

  • offering innovative approaches to complex problems.
  • shaping culture and social structures.
  • redefining old paradigms of power and relationship.
  • healing and restoring communities.
  • establishing a nobler vision of what we can be together.


These clients are seasoned executives with enough leadership experience to have been humbled by it. The challenges they face are complex and fast-changing, the stakes high, the outcomes unpredictable. They no longer imagine heroic roles for themselves but aspire instead to be agile, responsive partners in a larger emerging pattern. They develop people around them in aligned collaboration. As committed to the inner work of leadership as to the outer work, who they are and how they lead lifts others up. 


Entrepreneurship is a masterclass in knowing oneself as creator of all that we experience. Successful entrepreneurs understand that the health of their business is an immediate reflection of the consciousness they bring to it; their vision, creativity, resourcefulness, inner conflicts, and beliefs in limitation or struggle are all reflected in opportunities and challenges. Their reward for bringing awareness of these creative forces to the practical decisions and strategies of entrepreneurship is a life of integrity and contribution—the highest expression of their passion and purpose.


I support creatives who take us into the unexplored and emerging geographies of our hearts and being. They speak to what is evolutionary, authentic, and generative, awakening possibilities for fuller expressions of who we are becoming. Their largely private work on behalf of the collective asks much of them. Coaching supports the essential task of staying true to their inspiration when inner or outer resistance arises. Engaging that resistance constructively refines their expression in ways that bring it more powerfully to the world.

My work is entirely customized to each client’s needs and circumstances. We may begin in any of the following formats and, when it serves, shift to another or combine them.

Executive Coaching

What is my authentic executive presence? How do I use my power with integrity? How assertive should I be in promoting change? How can I develop a more effective leadership team? What’s the best approach to political challenges? How can I rewrite my own self-limiting narratives and be my most powerful and effective as a leader?

Executive coaching is a high-level thought partnership that gives leaders the opportunity to test their thinking, evaluate options, work through personal challenges, learn new skills, and understand their own capacities in an entirely confidential and objective relationship. Such a partnership helps leaders be clear, wise, and attuned to what’s happening now—strengths that are especially crucial when conditions are quickly and unpredictably changing.

For those who have been called to the depths, there is more. Perhaps you sense intuitive stirrings, a restlessness of soul, an impulse to risk something new in service to what you can’t yet see. Or there may be a more obvious transformation afoot: a major transition, a profound loss or a new beginning, a courageous question, a conflict or crisis, a search for meaning. However it presents, you want to follow this call—and receive what it promises.

It is my privilege to guide individuals through what may feel like unfamiliar terrain but is ultimately a way home. Together, we hold a light to what has been hidden and see what is waiting to be known. We bring a new awareness that transforms structures, relationships, and practical ways of being. The process may seem deeply psychological, spiritual, or both. Always, we are guided by an emerging wisdom and grounded in practices designed specifically for each client’s unique journey.

Transformational Guidance

Group Exploration

We are experiencing a collective initiation. The heroic framework—where power, competence and knowing reside within exceptional individuals we look to for guidance—cannot take us into the new pattern. The wisdom emerging now is coming through collective sensing and response to intelligence that transcends any individual.

Collective intelligence is “field” awareness and transmission practiced by a coherent group. To access this capacity we suspend personal certainty, seek diverse perspectives, and see whole systems. We listen for and trust the ways human and natural systems speak—through the voice deep within and through subtle perception, in symbols, synchronies, stories, and the natural world. We then use our personal choices and actions to embody what we have received and help to bring a new reality into being.

I offer group explorations as laboratories for experimentation and communities of practice. We work in an energetically-held container to develop the subtle capacities needed to access emergent wisdom as we explore a particular theme. Participants make rich connections that can nourish their work and growth beyond the group experience.
