Life By Your Design.

Experiencing life from the soul’s point of view is what drives and sustains me. I’ve made it my mission to revere soul through the enormous gift of the senses. They offer nourishment and sanctuary to my body, yet also deliver the wonder needed to be continually engaged by life.

My own journey has taught me that enlightenment is not a destination – it’s a philosophy of living. It means cultivating a fully considered and continually evolving life, then luxuriating in its everyday resolutions … with passion.

Honoring the wisdom of my senses has required an unwavering faith in their ability to orchestrate my decisions. My soul yearned to be seduced by an honest connection to the Divine. I call that grace. When I surrendered to being impassioned and replete with soul, grace saturated my life.

I strive to live there every day.

We’re joined to each other by our collective craving for beauty, serenity, and meaning. My senses are my refuge, my way into those cravings. They’re a tangible connection to a union with my self, my family, and my surroundings.

I’ve always been a mind-body-soul seeker, but my refuge wasn’t always assured. In my early 20s, I was usually mired in a stack of self-help books that either explained how to chase my toddlers while smiling or how to lock the door and have a bath to engender balance. I was continually searching outside myself for answers. I was an overwhelmed, exhausted, single mother so deeply entrenched in caring for others that I’d forgotten to nourish the innately essential me. I’d fallen away from the wisdom of my senses.

So I began to revisit my physical self through my love of movement. I realized it was the one thing I instinctively trusted for safe exploration of my soul. My senses awakened in soul. I discovered that the human body demands refuge within itself for authentic exploration. Physical connection to the outside world is the soul’s yearning to reengage the senses. Doing this became the driving force behind my sojourn back to me. That revelation changed the direction of my life.

I pledged my faith in the wisdom of my senses to unearth my passionate human soul … and I’ve never looked back.

What’s meaningful to me is cultivating a deeply authentic and passionate life of sensual harmony.

I LOVE guiding women's wellness retreats! Give your SELF a treat…and join us!

Paint the world with your body-loving feminine power…

discover YOU through Your Body Beloved program & retreats.

Women are daily bombarded with messages from the media that our bodies are not enough. Dispatches from the body itself remind us that hormones, illness, and stress are taking their toll on “women of a certain age.” Consequently, we are left feeling dissatisfied with the functionality and beauty of the bodies we will inhabit for the rest of our lives. Underneath this habitual physical fault-finding and its consequences on women’s self-esteem is a collective yearning to stop this heartbreaking cycle. It’s time to develop a more loving relationship with our own physicality.

The Female Body – all ages, shapes, and sizes – is the most exquisite manifestation of creative power on the planet. Period.

This is why Lynn Darnton, Caroline MacNeill Hall and Karin McDermott – well-respected executive coaches, leadership advisors, and teachers – created Your Body Beloved™, a program that transforms dissatisfaction and dis-ease into enduring love and gratitude. It’s a vital and audacious conviction… and it’s about time!

Your Body Beloved™ is a 4-month program, bookended by two weekend retreats, which will restore you to a loving relationship with your body. The program includes experiential learning in a community of peers, group coaching, reading and journaling exercises, breath and movement sessions, and homework assignments—nurturing practices all focused on deepening your love affair with you.
