Statement of Practice
Laura believes that breath is a covenant with the divine. It is a doorway to living a more fully alive and vibrant life. She invites the individual to live into their own authenticity while learning to listen more deeply to their three centers: the mind, heart, and body. Stemming from her background in Existential Humanistic psychology, she aims to experience an authentic, honest, and caring relationship with her clients, in order to create an environment where the breather will experience the freedom to explore and discover their own unique “Self” while integrating genuine, open and healthier ways of being-in-the-world.
Laura has studied the path of awakening while exploring the nature of consciousness with Inspiration for over 10 years. She began her formal training as a breathwork practitioner in 2005. She continues to attend an advanced spiritual practice class that has been ongoing for over 5 years. She believes deeply in the power of collective energy to awaken deeper aspects of consciousness. She served on the board of directors at Inspiration as secretary for 5 years.
