About Caitlin M. Gill
Caitlin’s passion is to provide a safe, sacred space for persons to access their authenticity through meditation, movement, creativity and play. She believes that spending these focused moments together cultivating self-awareness, authentic witnessing, compassion, and curiosity, like a drop of water on a still lake, will ripple out to positively touch and deepen not only our personal lives, but our intimate communities and the collective whole.
