Bringing mindfulness to action and compassion to life!

 header type our mission

We Foster Consciousness, Compassion & Connection.

Many people come to us because they want a kinder more loving relationship with themselves and the world. We often feel that if we could rid ourselves of fear, sadness, pain, we would be happy. Mental distress and addiction are often a response to these feelings. Our experience is that rather than trying to flee these feelings we need to develop a compassionate relationship with them.

Our mission is to use our specialized training, clinical and personal experience to develop a more informed mind, body and interpersonal connection. We integrate the tools of mindfulness with the clinical power of action methods to foster consciousness, compassion and connection.

This process can help you:

  • Deepen self-understanding
  • Understand your choices
  • Resolve inner and interpersonal conflicts
  • Develop tools to feel safe and unstuck
  • Reduce reactivity
  • Define your life's direction and purpose
  • Rediscover your capacity for joy
  • Diminish feelings of unworthiness or shame
  • Tap into spontaneity and creativity
  • Increase concentration

How do we get there? Through the integration of:

  • Mindfulness
  • Sociometry
  • Compassion Training
  • Meditation
  • Action Methods
  • Psychodramatic Processes
  • Interpersonal Awareness
  • Conscious Action

Mindfulness is the moment-to-moment awareness. It is to be present to situations as they unfold.

Sociometry is the study of choice. We all make choices within interpersonal relationships. Choices are fundamental to life as human beings.

Action Methods are based on the theory that creative expression has a healing effect on psychological problems. Action helps us expand and deepen our understanding.

Psychodramatic Processes are based on the way we grow and develop. We are able to expand our identities by seeing ourselves in others. Through the development of empathy we have a greater capacity to reverse roles with the others. Psychodrama is an effective way to look at difficulties, increase understanding and resolve conflicts.

Interpersonal Awareness involves the ability to relate and understand others by reversing roles while maintaining a presence of self. Interpersonal awareness facilitates being responsive to verbal and nonverbal communication. 

Study of Interpersonal Relationships leads us to gain knowledge about ourselves and our reactions. By studying our interpersonal relationships we develop strategies to hold our feelings, and speak openly about them.

Meditation is to learn to slow down, pause and quiet the mind's chatter. Meditation practices help us see things with clarity and neutrality.

Conscious Action is about being able to think before acting; to respond with spontaneity (in a novel and adequate way) to any situation; and to reflect afterwards on the outcome of our actions.

Testimonials

The first time I stepped into the Labyrinth I was very naive to the journey I was about to take. I had no expectation, but stepped gingerly, not sure how many walls I would bump into and bounce off of along my way. I had never experienced psychodrama before and am grateful to the women I journeyed with who gently held my hand and guided me. I was unprepared for the raw emotion and the profound learning, and thankful for the incredibly safe and loving environment Jaye...

I attended your session, "Releasing Personal And Interpersonal Wounds Through Forgiveness," was quite please and inspired by your presentation and process. I appreciated your series of warm ups, allowing us to choose mantras, and warming us up to how each of us may have harmed others, been harmed by them, or by ourselves. I was struck by how this process would be welcomed and easily could be adapted and applied to some church groups with which I am associated. Because of...

The value I receive from attendance in the workshops transcends both personal and professional space. Learning the techniques of deep reflection requires the time to pause, reflect—and discover. Moving from internal reflection to integration and then external action, requires a different set of tools—and practice, practice, practice! The ability to learn these techniques in a mutually-supportive environment with talented and knowledgeable guides and mentors is a...
Marete A. Wester Director of Arts Policy, Americans for the Arts
I had the pleasure of participating in the mindfulness group presented by Jacqueline Siroka and Jaye Moyer. As a meditator with experience in several mindfulness-based programs, I found this format especially enriching and meaningful. Each session provided a new framework for applying mindfulness and compassion to one's life while offering a safe, supportive environment to question how these skills support our personal well-being. The opportunity to connect with other...

The psychodrama master class was excellent. The teacher was wonderful; the class size was perfect." "The most valuable session I attended was Jaye Moyer's "Active Compassion: Mindfulness in Psychodrama & Group Process." The session was very small (8 participants) and was tremendous as a self-care and re-centering exercise. I have no training in psychodrama, but the experience was very powerful." "Very therapeutic!...excited to roll out with clients &...
