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.

In today's society, many of us approach life full speed ahead. Low-grade stress, in the form of worry, is our constant companion. Often we're concerned about work, family life, and finances. Sometimes this leads us to cram more activities into or eke more productivity out of every day. It is as if we've become hamsters on a wheel and forget that we have a choice about whether or not to get off that..

Do you ever think to yourself, "Ugh, my to-do list seems never-ending?" Or, do you sometimes put off things you enjoy until you finish your to-do list, or never get around to the fun stuff because the list always lurks in the background? If you are compelled to do rather than be, a helpful tip to try is to create a mini-list with only three things. A list of three items, in a given day, doesn't seem..
