Tommy Housworth,


Buddhist Catnaps & Broken-Down Hymns , Tommy Housworth’s new collection of short stories, is now available at our sangha bookstore, as well as on and Barnes&  The stories feature a variety of characters chasing down redemption. Some find it, while others tumble into karmic detours that lead to harrowing – and sometimes darkly humorous – results.  If you enjoy Raymond Carver, T.C. Boyle, Kurt Vonnegut, and Sam Shepard, you may find these stories resonate with you as well.  See also : Welcome to Storyville

Energy Medicine and Change Facilitation

Reiki Master , Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT), 200hrs

404-831-0094 /

My primary goal is to help people navigate paths of change, healing and wellness using Reiki and occasionally other methods.  Reiki is an energetic healing technique that channels energy via touch to activate the natural healing processes of the body and restore physical and emotional well-being.  A Reiki session can help support the body in creating an environment for healing on all levels – physical, mental, and emotional.  It is a great tool for stress reduction and relaxation; wellness; and pain reduction.  It can also be an effective tool for change and working with emotional challenges or blockages.

Life Coaching


 John Neill, Life/Personal Coaching Services

Free Offer

Hello!  I am a long-term meditator and student of Shambhala.  I am a former member of the Atlanta Shambhala Center, where I was a teacher and meditation instructor; and I’m now living in Denver, Colorado.  I have recently completed a six-month course in personal coaching at the Gestalt Institute of Cleveland, a program certified by the International Coach Federation.  I am seeking additional prospective coachees in order to increase my experience and also meet certification requirements.

What is coaching?  It’s best described as a learning partnership between coach and coachee in which the coachee brings an issue or issues in personal or professional life that she or he would like make progress with, or some persistent challenge where there is a feeling of “being stuck.”  The coach provides feedback, reflection and new perspectives — as well as a structure for setting and working towards goals.  One definition of coaching is “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.”

The agenda for the work is always up to the coachee, and can evolve and change as the work progresses.  There is no time commitment – you are free to stop the work at any time for whatever reason. Complete confidentiality of our work is a foundational element of the relationship.

Coaching is distinct from therapy and from mentoring/advising.  I am not a licensed therapist.  The role of the coach is also not to just give advice but to actively engage with you to build awareness of alternatives and possibilities and facilitate movement toward desired outcomes.

The Gestalt approach to coaching is highly relational, humanistic and whole-person-centered.  Compassionate engagement and genuine presence are the touchstones.

Please feel free to contact me if you’re interested in exploring this opportunity.  I’m happy to answer questions and welcome your curiosity, even if you’re unsure.
