Logistics for Mentorship
I see clients locally at my office at 1818 NE Irving Street in Portland, Oregon, 97232. My office hours are on Thursday and Friday (beginning in 2019, I’ll be switching to Wednesday and Thursday). I also work with people around the world via Skype, and have a few extra slots on Monday and Tuesday.
Short-term vs. Long-term Mentorship
There can be great value in one-off sessions, and I often see people who just need specific guidance at a particular moment of their journey. Sometimes this relates to preparing for a meditation retreat (or integrating afterwards), one burning question they might have, a spiritual crisis, or any number of other things.
However, my core interest is working with people are truly committed to their own development. In turn, I make my schedule primarily available to people who commit to at least six months of mentorship. There’s three primary things involved:
1) One hour mentorship sessions between 2 and 4 times per month.
2) A commitment to a daily/near-daily meditation practice (or a related modality).
3) Exploring ways to expand your practice beyond our sessions and your formal meditation.
Before starting a long-term mentorship, I usually see people first for a single session to see if it’s a good fit. From there, we can dialogue about your intentions, and discover if you’re interested in a longer-term relationship. If you’re located in the Portland area, I’d also suggest checking out one of my meditation events.
I offer mentorship on a sliding scale of $60 – $120 per session.
I also often have a couple scholarship slots available, so if you feel genuinely called to do this work, but find the cost prohibitive, please contact me and we’ll see what we can work out.
