(Pronounced:  Reene)

Renee has been mentoring, teaching and coaching individuals, couples, families and groups in ways to embody a kinder and heart-connected self that is in alignment with nature and the authenticity of universal values.  Through inner realization techniques and somatic learning Renee encourages others to explore the experience as the education.  Each of the integrative awareness tools that Renee presents is  modeled after the first stages of learning that each human  comes into the world with.  That is the capacity to cultivate awareness and embody learning.
