Let me guess...
You're tired of wading the waters of pop-spirituality.
And while you've definitely found some of it to be helpful...
...there's just something about your practice or these adopted ideas that feels slightly ungrounded. There's a subtle disconnect; the parts don't seem to add up. You feel as if you're standing in a rubble field of spirituality—and even so, you can just feel that this spiritual debris must have come from somewhere. But where?
This is where I come in. I am not a spiritual teacher, but I am a spiritual field guide. I help people like you move from the rubble field to a more defined and reliable path. What makes a trail a trail is the existence of the thousands of people who have come before us to lead the way. What worked for me has been the path of following the footsteps of those who have come before me. Bushwhacking can certainly be exciting, and yet, it is inevitably frustrating. But a defined path can be just as exciting, too. And it certainly saves a lot of time we'd otherwise spend wandering.
I am continually led by the Great Beings and masters of the path of maha śakti yoga. This traditional, sophisticated, and efficacious path of yoga has sculpted and defined me for the last 7 years. If you'd like to tread this path with me, I invite you to read on and learn more.
Hello! 👋 My name is Hanna
and I'm really good at helping people just like you to find their footing on the spiritual path.
My clients are busy spiritual seekers, committed to their careers or their families, who desire to live a more consciously engaged life.
Well, what does it mean to be consciously engaged?
Conscious engagement is a process of living that is oriented around recognizing, invoking, and courting a more subtle reality. This subtle reality is All-permeating Consciousness—the true substrate of all of existence. You've heard the saying: "Everything is God." But have you ever heard a suitable explanation for why, or how? What I offer my clients is a compelling explanation for why, and also a solid framework towards coming into deeper faith, practice, and devotion to God—which is, after all, Life itself.
But maybe you've asked:
"If everything is God, why am I not constantly aware of this?"
Well, that's because God is either more revealed or more concealed in our experience. The spiritual process is about chasing moments of revealment, and mitigating situations that promote concealment. And as modern practitioners who are living & loving in the world, we become consciously engaged when we're able to orient ourselves towards revealment regardless of what we're experiencing—whether we're stuck in a zoom meeting at work, cleaning up after our children at the end of the day, or even in the midst of life's heartbreaks. The truth is: if we can't retire to a monastery, we must instead establish ourselves in the cave of our hearts. We modern practitioners have to engage in a form of new monasticism—in which we become masters in the midst of the world; dervishes navigating the marketplace of life with repose, clarity, and an open heart.
I am here waiting for you at the mouth of your heart's cave—would like to give it a try?
Concepts I cover with my clients:
God as concealed or revealed.
Curating sense impressions.
Establishing a devotional practice.
The "power of company."
Orienting towards "satsang."
Grace & self-effort [huge!]
Understanding the ego.
Recognizing perfection in imperfection.
The dynamic between the feminine and masculine principles of Reality
"Witness awareness" or affectionate detachment.
Making friends with the mind.
& acknowledging the true Source of love and joy.
So, who am I?
I am not a spiritual teacher. I am a spiritual field guide.
A spiritual field guide is like a traditional field guide—someone who knows the forest really well, and can help to guide you through it.
As a field guide, I am familiar with many paths and trails, and even know some secret routes that I’ve been told about by other guides, or even—whispered to by the forest itself. As a field guide, I certainly know a lot about the forest, but the forest is so incomprehensibly big that I could never possibly know every inch of it.
The forest in this metaphor is the spiritual path. The forest is the universe. The forest is life itself and the path to God that is hidden within it. As your spiritual field guide, I am not the forest—I simply have a map of it, and know it well enough to feel confident guiding you through it.
In addition to this, I am a student and initiate of a classical Shakta (Goddess) Tantric tradition and have been studying in my particular lineage for seven years. This living lineage can be traced back from student to teacher to the founder of Kashmir Shaivism: Abhinavagupta.
Other teachers in our lineage include:
Pundit Ramesh Moudgil, Baba Muktananda, Dhyanyogi Madhusudandas, Sree Anandamayi Ma, and a powerful, rare, and active connection to Sai Baba of Shirdi.
This lineage of classical Tantra is grounded in working with the transformational power of Grace, developing positive orientations in the mind that empower growth and connection, and living in service to the world (the Divine itself.)
My association with this tradition deeply permeates my worldview and approach to working with clients. I prefer working with people who are specifically interested in the path of yoga, however I have helped many people who are interested in exploring other religions as well. What I am ultimately interested in is guiding you towards a committed, transformational path that is in alignment with who you are and where you want to go.
Lucky for you, I am also a scholar of world religion. I studied esoteric religions in college, and have nearly 10 years of experience studying many of the most brilliant and transformational spiritual approaches on earth. So, I am incredible resource for you to try to figure out where exactly you might want to direct your attention spiritually.
Ultimately, I am here to act as your guide, mentor, and mirror
to reflect back all that already exists inside of you.
My clients are...
...spiritual coaches, healers, intuitives & leaders who are interested in grounding their client work in deep service to the Divine, the refinement of the ego, and practices/approaches that are based in the integrity of lineage-based spirituality.
And at the same time:
My clients are also just ordinary people with the extraordinary gift of being on fire for God.
I work with mothers, fathers, siblings, co-workers, & friends [aka: anyone] who simply want to deepen their experience of the Divine—to Divinize every aspect of their life. Understand this: Spirituality has nothing to do with your job, your partnership, or your role in society. It's about your ability to recognize what is eternally relevant in all of those situations; it's to invoke and serve the Divine in all of our actions.
So, how does it work?
Mentorship with me happens within month-long containers. To start, you'll sign on to work with me for one month, and then from there we can continue on a month-by-month basis.
During this time, we'll have weekly calls over zoom. in addition to this, you'll have access to me on Voxer, which is a voice/text messaging app.
This experience is a great environment for growth because we can still talk about ideas / concepts / feelings / breakthroughs in-between sessions.
So: It truly becomes an ongoing, living relationship that we build together.
During our time together, you'll also have access to all past classes I have taught [including the Steiner Reading Room,] or new classes that I teach during the time we work together.
One month with me is $555 or $142/week [auto-billed by subscription]
I don't do one-off calls because I'm not interested in that.
What I am interested in is:
the fertile soil of human connection;
preparing the garden of your becoming;
& working the soil of your being,
in order to plant the seeds of the teachings.
Relationships aren't built in one call. You know this already. So are you ready ?
"Working one on one with Hanna over the past few months has been a precious gift. Her humor, compassion, instincts, and deep knowledge and understanding of spiritual practices are unmatched. I feel like I discover something new and transformative every week, either in our sessions or between them as I integrate the things we talked about. Over the course of our time together, the interconnectedness, simplicity, and beauty of the spiritual path, (of which Hanna is an expert navigator), has continually amazed and delighted me. Sometimes the path is hilarious, sometimes it's painful, but there is always the offering to find Grace in the process. Working with Hanna has given me access to more joy, more gratitude, more GRACE (even and especially when things are crummy), and a deep trust in my self and in the unfolding of my life. I would enthusiastically and ecstatically recommend her as a Spiritual Field Guide. Plus she’s really funny."
If I receive your application and you fit my criteria, we can schedule a free consultation call.
During this time, we'll meet each other and see if we'll be a good fit. I'll spend most of the call asking you questions to tap into your desires [your Future Self] so that we can begin to pave the way to your potential. Your ability to act Divinely—to move through the world with a Divine Disposition—is already within you. Divine Love, Divine Compassion, Divine Truth, Divine Beauty. All of these qualities are inherent within your being. Together we can bring them forward.
Your submitted application does not guarantee a call with me.
You will receive an email from me if I'd like to meet with you. :)
"The space Hanna facilitated within our first month was truly and profoundly transformational. Standing on the other side of those 4 weeks, it feels as if I'm fully my authentic self; yet paradoxically, a brand new being with untapped potential.
True to the field guide title, the tools and knowledge Hanna possesses combined with her deep empathy and apt humor were integral in guiding me to my home within myself."
