An Overview

For too many of us, “embodying love” is just a concept or seems far too illusive to truly integrate in our lives. It’s heartbreaking because deep down we know we are these love-filled beings but so often we don’t act like it. Too often, we don’t feel like it. I invite you to join me for a full day of “being” in Love where we will connect with Love that is ever-present within us. From this "state of Love", we will explore the embodied experience of bringing that Love into relationships and the joy that arises when feeling it fully alive within.

Sharing, singing, moving — we will relax into being in our natural state of Love. And throughout the day, we will enjoy the bliss of singing together in kirtan!

How Did We Disconnect From Love?

Each of us is unique, so the factors that influence the way Love does or does not show up in our lives — and how we act in our relationships — are unique as well. They may include:

  • How we were — or weren’t — nurtured and supported in the past
  • Unhealed wounds and traumas
  • Cultural pressures to not allow us to shine brightly
  • Patterns with which we came into this life
  • Unrealistic marketing ideals and advertising pressures (our appearance, our wealth, our social standing, and more)

It’s quite amazing that we can adapt to survive almost any situation. But sadly, when we lack a wise, loving presence in our lives to help guide us through our biggest challenges, we all too often cope with the pain by closing our hearts.

But while this works in the short term, it leads to a much deeper crack in the foundation of our being… disconnecting us from the unconditionally loving and aware presence that we fundamentally ARE.

Without this connection, we struggle to access wisdom and our intuition. Compulsive thinking takes over, making us far more emotionally reactive. And finally, we become starved for love… needy… and our self-esteem plunges. And this, in turn, damages our relationships with our partners, children, parents, friends, co-workers… and everyone around us.

Experiencing A Deep Love Connection Within

In the morning, we'll establish a safe and sacred space, for there is enormous power in creating a field of Love together. It makes it easier for all of us to feel in to our natural flow state of Being Love. We’ll explore different ways of connecting with our beautiful essence. With guidance, you’ll find yourself able to do this with ease, sensing into the love and compassion ever alive within you. And we’ll play with ways in which you can do this more and more deeply and powerfully in the days and years ahead.

We’ll find our way to become far more free to be the loving, light-hearted, creative beings we were born to be… NOW. To be a living embodiment of Love.


Embodying Love In Relationships

In the afternoon, we’ll transition from embodying love to showing up as embodied love in your relationships… with your primary partner… your family… your friends… your co-workers. Together, we’ll practice bringing the Loving Awareness you are into your relationships with others.

We’ll play with being in a flow state of loving presence — first, in silence, then with others. We’ll explore the freedom that being in this state offers in terms of deepening your ability to truly feel and hear what is expressed by those you are with — without taking it personally.

And we'll experience the peace and joy of not needing to "get love" or "be loved" by anyone, but rather, from this flow state of Love, welcoming the love that is offered.

Truly living as Love is liberating — not just for ourselves, but for all those around us.

About Kirtan

Image of The Gayatri Mantra

Kirtan is a form of yoga in which we sing in unison, feeling deeply into the vibration of the powerful transformative and healing sounds held within each chant.

Kirtan does not require any prior knowledge or experience. We will learn the chants together and being a “good singer” is not at all necessary.

There is no pressure to sing. All are welcome to just listen and bathe in the loving, healing vibration!

The weekend set me free!

Bodhi, the weekend set me free! I suffered for so long, never able to get past the fear and out of my own way to do my dream work. Now when I cry it's in gratitude that I am being the best of me with my wife and kids, and that I get to contribute to the world with this work I love doing. Endless gratitude.

It's easier than ever to step out of my comfort zone!

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for this event. I have taken big steps towards listening closely to my intuition and living from this place of inner truth. I am more courageous in speaking from my heart and do more things I value and like to do. Family time has been much more pleasurable and my business is really moving forward. I can now take fear by the hand, and be more compassionate with myself and others with greater ease. It's easier than ever to step out of my comfort zone!

Recent testimonials

  • I am learning to live with an open, positive heart thanks to Bodhi's wisdom and guidance.

    Julie Sidur Insurance Professional Oceanside, California

    Working with Bodhi on an individual basis is teaching me how to see the truth about my self-defeating ways and empowering me to deal with the toxic energy in me from as far back as my childhood. He is helping me break free from my negative, conditioned responses that I have had most my life. I am learning to be able to express myself more clearly from my authentic higher self. All I have ever wanted to do is to be able to connect with people.

    Bodhi shows me how to do this through helping me to process what is really going on inside, seeing what is truly needed and proceeding from a grounded, secure place in my communication with people in my life. I am learning to live with an open, positive heart thanks to Bodhi's wisdom and guidance. For this I will be forever grateful to Bodhi.

  • I’m thankful for your clarity and presence and for how much peace it has brought into my life.

    Violet Lehrer Owner, Clarity Path Coaching Carlsbad, California

    Bodhi, I woke up flooded with gratitude for you today — your essence, your teaching, your energy, your sweet soft voice, your non-judgment. Your ability to have integrated that and not just teach it is inspiring to me. I’m thankful for your clarity and presence and for how much peace it has brought into my life. I’m thankful that the kids have learned the meaning of resistance and trigger.

    I’m thankful for the hundred times I’ve heard your voice saying “the truth and essence of who we are is love” and that I can hear that voice in my head louder than the childhood “you’re not good enough”. I’ve thankful for the healing you’ve guided me on. I’m thankful that you have shown me (and Matt) the path to our hearts. I’m thankful for all the moments of freedom and joy that are in my life because I am not in resistance. You have made a profound difference in my life.

  • What Bodhi does almost makes traditional coaching obsolete.

    Calvin Correli President & CEO, Creator of Simplero New York, New York

    I have used many coaches over the years, but Bodhi is one that I return to because he is simply in a class of his own. My experience has been that a lot of coaches can help you get to your goals faster, only to have you realize that those goals didn't actually fulfill you or give you what you thought they would. What Bodhi does, is help me heal and clear out those things that prevent me from going where I truly need and want to go, in the simplest possible way. What Bodhi does almost makes traditional coaching obsolete.

  • The synergy of his organizational expertise with his insight, clarity and awareness has brought the university to a new level.

    Irv Katz, Ph.D., Chancellor International University of Professional Studies Maui, Hawaii

    Bodhi's extraordinary talent of bringing clarity to our vision, goals, and processes has been of great benefit to the university. We’re more focused, more productive, and are in a much better position to serve our student population. The synergy of his organizational expertise with his insight, clarity and awareness has brought the university to a new level.

  • It was my sessions with Bodhi that helped me to heal my most self-destructive patterns.

    Kirstin Nielsen Partner Relations Manager, Aarhus BSS Career Højbjerg, Denmark

    Bodhi is a fantastic teacher and coach, and I’m so thankful for working with him. Though I’ve worked with coaches and therapists over the last 10 years, it was my sessions with Bodhi that helped me to heal my most self-destructive patterns. Now I feel very blessed that my life flows. Bodhi is a very warm and humorous person, and I always get amazing insights during our sessions.

    As a coach I had primarily been using a very result-oriented model with a great number of people in Europe. After meeting Bodhi I learned to act from truth and I feel so much more present with my clients. As a result, my business has expanded naturally without any other effort than just being able to use what I’ve learned from Bodhi with my clients. He makes a great difference for so many people.
