Individual Sessions, Guided Contemplative Practices, Workshops

Welcome! Under the Sweetgum exists to accompany people on their journey to deeper awakening, wholeness, and inner freedom. I believe that our spiritual practice and awareness directly impact the way we show up in the world and the way in which we relate to the divine, to ourselves, and to others. Our individual liberation is inherently connected to the liberation of all of creation. 

Will you join me?

"In the morning

When I began to wake,

It happened again—

That feeling

That You, Beloved,

Had stood over me all night

Keeping watch,

That feeling

That as soon as I began to stir

You put Your lips on my forehead

And lit a Holy Lamp

Inside my heart"

--Hafiz, translated by Daniel Ladinsky
