About Peggy

With a rich tapestry of life experiences and professional training, I am dedicated to nurturing the potential within each individual I encounter.

My Path

From an early age, Peggy faced profound challenges that shaped her into the compassionate facilitator, guide, and educator she is today. Born into circumstances that were far from nurturing, she found solace and identity in the structure and recognition provided by the educational system. This early experience ignited a passion for teaching, leading her to a rewarding career in public education across different states and settings, from an Ojibwe reservation to an International Baccalaureate School.

Peggy’s personal journey through adversity, including navigating the impacts of her upbringing, two marriages, and the quest for self-worth, led her to explore various paths of healing. Her exploration included traditional talk therapy, antidepressants, and hypnotherapy, but it was the practice of Ashtanga yoga that began to open a door to deeper self-understanding and healing. This journey of self-discovery was further advanced by her engagement with Courage & Renewal® retreats and her eventual training to become a Courage & Renewal Circle of Trust® Facilitator, a role she cherishes for the opportunity it provides to create safe spaces for communal exploration and growth.

Peggy’s exploration of self and healing took a significant turn when she encountered psychedelic medicines. These experiences offered her new perspectives on her life, fostering compassion, love, and forgiveness for herself and others. Eager to share the transformative potential of these experiences, she pursued training with The Center for Medicinal Mindfulness, becoming a certified Psychedelic Guide. In parallel, recognizing the need for effective communication, especially in challenging situations like her second divorce, Peggy became a Real Dialogue Specialist, committed to fostering understanding and connection through mindful communication.

With over 25 years of experience in education and a rich tapestry of personal growth and professional training, Peggy offers a unique blend of services that reflect her journey and expertise. Whether through psychedelic guidance, yoga, or creating spaces for Real Dialogue and connection, she invites others to explore their own paths of healing, transformation, and self-discovery. Peggy embodies a philosophy that continual learning and exploration within a community are essential for individual and collective evolution.

Peggy’s story is one of overcoming, understanding, and ultimately, of offering. She invites you to join her in exploring the deeper meanings of existence, navigating life’s transitions, and integrating insights from psychedelic experiences. Through her work, Peggy aims to live into and share realities of love, gratitude, and equanimity, guided by the Touchstones that have supported her journey.
