In these complex times we need to grow deeper roots in our spiritual nature: to access peace and equanimity for ourselves, and also so that our way of being becomes a refuge to loved ones and community.

Ask yourself: what does it take to be more graceful and responsive rather than reactive with the personal and collective invitations of our time? How can we harness everything we grapple with as a Divine Invitation to learn or let go? What does it take to compassionately open our heart to suffering — our own and that of others — without getting swallowed whole? How can we trust and stay optimistic, when things look like such a mess?

In an atmosphere of unconditional love, Miranda will guide you into and through your most important material, to access the Grace that is always present at the core of your being. Learn how to stay calm amidst the chaos, respond from inner wisdom rather than ego reactivity, and emerge more spiritually nourished and resilient.

During our time together, we will:

  • Connect to the Grace that is always alive at the core of your being.
  • Relax the roots of ego fear, control, and the tendency to polarize.
  • Cultivate deeper trust, humility, compassion, and joy.
  • Stabilize in your spiritual heart and access its nourishing nectars.
  • Radiate your love and wisdom where it matters most.

Miranda shares a holistic and feminine approach to surrender and nondual realization based on a practice she calls Ego Relaxation — embracing the totality of our experience as a gateway into our deepest nature. Her wisdom and transmission invite others to become more graceful human beings through inquiry, meditation, and devotional practice, together with psychological integration. Miranda’s work is grounded in an extensive study of the world’s wisdom traditions, and thirty years of experience guiding others into direct spiritual experience internationally.
