Hi, I'm Amy Pattee Colvin.

I'm an unshakable optimist, educator, author, and life-long learner dedicated to helping you discover fully and completely, that you are enough, even when you’re not perfect.

But, I wasn’t always an unshakable optimist. In fact, I was a fearful kid, with a low self-esteem, and often suffered from situational depression. But in the mid-90s I attended a weekend Taoist meditation workshop that led me to realize the powerful benefits of regular meditation and positive mindset.

Over the years, and via many hours of workshops and retreats, my life has unfolded in a remarkable and joyful way.

Augmenting my Taoist background, in 2014 I became a certified facilitator for Stanford University’s Compassion Cultivation Training. I then developed a curriculum called Cultivating Mindful Compassion which blends the best aspects of both my longtime Taoist practice and Compassion Cultivation Training.

I started facilitating this curriculum to make a difference.
+ I want to help you build a life that you truly love.
+ I teach people how to become their own best friends, helping people embody self-compassion rather than holding it at an intellectual distance.
+ I encourage people to recognize that taking care of themselves has an impact not only on themselves but on their loved ones and the world.

In 2016 I wrote and published Cultivating Compassion: Simple Everyday Practices for Discovering Peace of Mind and Resilience. It is a practical book, written in digestible snippets, to help you contemplate, reflect upon, then incorporate compassionate action into daily life.

If you’re ready to move beyond criticism and judgment for self and others and embrace peace and acceptance, or if you’d like to move through and beyond depression and anxiety into a place of resilience, creativity, and joy, please contact me so we can determine how I can best be of assistance.

How often do you find it easier to see your flaws rather than appreciate your strengths? If you answered, fairly often, you are not alone. Societal norms, educational environments, and/or family dynamics condition us to look at our failures rather than our successes. We internalize criticism and shrug off compliments. For some of us the idea of looking in the mirror with open-heartedness and love then..
