Welcome!

We are indeed living in interesting times! We are in the midst of deep transformation — both in the outer world and our inner worlds.

As a writer, teacher and speaker my mission is to be of service to profound, positive transformation. Now is the time to birth a more beautiful world and way of being.

My books, essays, programs, courses and speaking services support positive change in the areas of Economic Evolution, Restoration, of the Living World, and Spiritual Growth.


A Book for these Times

 

I never could have seen that my book, When Life Blows Up: A Guide to Peace, Power and Reinvention, would publish just weeks before we all got nailed with the pandemic and life as we knew it blew up.  It has been an honor to hear from so many of you that this book has been helpful and comforting during these challenging times.

Here’s what people have been saying:

“Filled with forgiveness and love, and a story of rebirth and transformation that recognizes our deepest fears and hurt, and offers a path to healing.”   –John de Graaf, co-author of AFFLUENZA and co-founder of the Happiness Alliance.

“When Life Blows Up: A Guide to Peace, Power and Reinvention is both a story of growth and reinvention as well as a guide to living authentically and vitally. Cylvia recounts some truly difficult circumstances, and is quick to take ownership with breathtaking humility and poise. Her story is inspirational and instructive. I highly recommend this to anyone enduring difficulty and hardship.” — John Nash, CFO.

“This book is clearly and honestly written – and can be a great source of wisdom and comfort to those whose lives have gone south for any reason. I recommend.” — Kate, Reader.

In When Life Blows Up I take the reader on an intimate journey through a devastating public shaming that destroyed my business, countless relationships and even my personal sense of identity. Through the annihilation of who I believed myself to be I discovered the True Self I hadn’t yet met and opened to new opportunities I hadn’t known existed. This book is for anyone experiencing loss, grief, and unexpected life upheaval. It offers proven strategies for:

  • MANAGING FEAR EVEN IN CRISIS
  • FINDING POWER IN SURRENDER
  • HARNESSING FORGIVENESS
  • RELEASING SHAME AND GUILT
  • REENTERING CAREER and COMMUNITY WITH PEACE AND POWER

“This book can serve as an inspiration for anyone who feels that they can’t possibly get up after life has knocked them down.”  — John Kitzhaber, former Oregon Governor

In order to be of service, when COVID-19 struck, I lowered the price of this book on all platforms.

Key Programs

Miraculous Living

A Course in Miracles defines a miracle as “a correction in error thinking.”  I have found this to be profoundly, beautifully true.  In the Miraculous Living program we provide fun, deep, insights and tools for transforming our thinking and discovering peace and power as a result.

The ReThink — Economic Evolution

The ReThink’s mission is to accelerate momentum toward a new normal in economies and ecological relationships. We are working to ensure that we don’t just “go back to normal,” but instead, seize this tumultuous, disruptive time to create new, healthier, saner norms.  This is the time for Economic Evolution and Rethinking Relationships with one another and Nature.

What people are saying about this work

Cylvia is a fantastic speaker — energetic, clear, inspirational and deep.  She made such a difference at our event, raising everyone’s energy to a new level.  — John D.

The online training Cylvia led for our organization was a hit!  She is warm and engaging but also sharp and whip-smart.  Highly recommended. — Melanie G.

The Miraculous Living program was life-changing.  Great tools for living a more peaceful and fulfilling life.  It was the best gift I could give myself.  Highly recommended.  – David N. 

I can’t recommend Cylvia enough. I started working with her not long after I lost my partner and my career at 51. I had gotten my footing a little bit but was so unclear on what I wanted to do moving forward. Cylvia helped me release fears that were keeping me blocked and clarify the things I really wanted to do moving forward. She helped me to see that the disruption in my life wasn’t just loss but also a chance to open up pieces of myself I hadn’t developed before. — Carol K.

For many of us the COVID experience has pared us down, peeled back layers, and honed us in on values and priorities.  For me during this time of isolation from society at-large, I’ve come to more deeply appreciate simple human connection. I live in a quiet neighborhood at the end of a cul-de-sac [...]
