My Philosophy

From years of listening deeply to many people from various cultures and walks of life, I have come to believe that healthy human relationships require mutual and genuine respect and trust. Everyone at the core wants to be relevant, valued and unconditionally loved.

Through personal and professional experiences, I have also come to believe that by connecting to our higher values and honoring our intuitions, the whispers of our heart, we can become more powerful, healthier and fulfilled. Whenever our path and higher purpose are misaligned, and our higher values and soul's calling are neglected or compromised, our emotional and physical states will become dissonant, out of balance and potentially ill.

Inevitably our entrenched cultural foundations need to be reshaped and re-enforced with stronger set of beliefs and pillars of support. Ultimately, our work is about gaining courage to face hard truths, sit with discomfort and the unknown, examine our assumptions and myths, shift our perspectives, attitudes, and choices in order to open doors to new possibilities.

"Thank you, Shadi, for your listening ear and generous spirit. You helped me sort through my confusion, trust my inner voice and follow my heart. I left our session excited and empowered. Thank you for your support!"
