Keys for Re-Entry


Take a few minutes for yourself right now.



“Don’t forget to breathe.”





Keys unlock doors and doors help you get through walls.

Keys let you in and let you out.

Among the tools you need for Re-Entry is a set of keys that you’ll use every day, across all the spheres. Carry these with you all the time.


Here’s the first key: Breathing 

Sometimes when I meet with clients, they arrive rushed, burdened, & distracted.

Sound familiar?

So we take a moment.

Finding a quiet place and giving attention to the breath and body has been used for ages across cultures as a way to calm the mind, allowing you to think, self-reflect, regain self-control, focus, and prepare.

Taking deep breaths is still (or even more) beneficial without a quiet place. It’s important to remember to breathe throughout your stressful day because deep breathing turns on the parasympathetic nervous system, reversing your body’s stress response.

Try this.

Take a few minutes for yourself right now.

 Settle in, quiet your thoughts, and breathe.

Repeat as needed.

Here’s a lovely Gong Timer you may use. How many minutes will you give yourself today?




“I took a deep breath and listened to the bray of my heart.

I am. I am. I am.”
