What we're about
Welcome to PDX Shine! This is a group about exploring the myriad ways we can be more aware, mindful and engaged in our lives. We will have chosen topics to kick off discussions about issues like being our own wise observer, present moment practice, living through our fears, trusting our own inner voice and process, shame resiliency and finding that flow in life. Inspiration for these topics came from works by Eckhart Tolle, Brene Brown, Byron Katie and Thich Nhat Hanh. Discussions can always add new topics and tangents as we lean into whatever is most interesting and desired. PDX Shine is facilitated by me, Derica Waller. I am an LCSW therapist and coach with 20 years experience. Both professionally and personally, I have always been fascinated by the immensity of our inner lives and how cultivating that wisdom and voice allows for a flow in life that supersedes the fear and problem-solving our minds invite us to focus on. So come! Share your curiosity, your wisdom and your desire to grow and let your light Shine!
