I like to take risks in whatever I am doing. I would rather find out what was behind door number 3 than accept door number 1 blindly. I like to spend my free time exploring the mountains. That could look like skiing in Steamboat, or listening to music in Gold Hill.
I spent my first 3 years out of college working for an international travel company. This gave me chance to see big chunk of the world. I still love to travel, but I would rather travel with friends on my own terms.
I spent four years managing an outdoor learning center. I am still very passionate about experiential education and outdoor education. I just felt like I needed to be somewhere where I could do the things I love as well as share them with others.
Music is important to me. Playing it, listening to it, writing lyrics, and sharing it with others.
I imagine the person I am looking for is someone I can't begin to imagine. I would like to meet someone who wants to know, and has to see. Someone who is content, but still seeking and learning because it is fun. Grounded with her head in the clouds.
Please excuse the long explanation of my current work responsibilities. It doesn't fit neatly in the boxes allotted below.
What work looks like for me (descending by time commitment) :
full-time- (Non-Profit - Restorative Justice) I recruit and train students and adults to mediate cases using a tribal justice model. The cases are referred by the police/D.A./ and schools.
Own Business- Facilitate Mind Detox -Talk Therapy that deals with the Mind-Body connection and its relationship to self-destructive behavior and chronic illness. I share a space with 2 acupuncturists and 2 massage therapists. This is by appointment.
When I can- about once every other month - Play Music at a Bar etc...- Mostly folk, blues, country covers. A few of my own when I am feeling brave.
Once a month- Teach a weekend meditation class in AZ/CO/TX/NM. The small community I am a part of created a non-profit to bring meditation into schools/jails/healthcare.
