Deep Living Approach


A transformative process of inquiries and practices that expand our capacity for Engaged Presence



    Engaged Presence is being with our full experience beyond our ideas, beliefs, and ego. We take inspired action, resting in the knowing of what is ours to do.

    We feel it when our interior essence aligns with our exterior actions and expressions. With an open and compassionate heart, we attune to our authentic sense of belonging, inner guidance, and agency.

    When we practice Engaged Presence, we create ripples that radiate beyond ourselves. Our practice reverberates to our clients and in our relationships, generating new ways of "being" in the world.

Comprehensive and Community-based


    The Deep Living Approach draws from the Enneagram, EnneaCrossings™, and more than 30 years of practice, teaching, and coaching by our founder, Dr. Roxanne Howe-Murphy.

The Enneagram

explores nine dimensions of the human condition, bringing clarity to our inner struggles and true nature. Identifying our core type enhances self-awareness and expands compassion for ourselves and others. Learn more about the Enneagram here.

EnneaCrossings™

is a deeply spiritual application of the Enneagram. It reveals four essential portals to expanding our capacity for Engaged Presence.

      Essential Holding: the internalized experience of security, belonging, and love. We recognize there is nothing to fix; we stop searching and see ourselves and others as they truly are.
      Essential Trust: trusting our life journey and sources of deep wisdom beyond our conceptual knowing. With expanded perceptions, we meet the unknown with confidence and wonder.
      Essential Connectedness: knowing we are in sacred relationship with all of life: humanity, the earth, and our truth. We embrace our whole selves, including the parts we may internally fight with.
      Engaged Presence: being with our full experience beyond our ideas, beliefs, and ego. We take inspired action, resting in the knowing of what is ours to do.

    Presence-based Practices

    bring us back to our direct felt-experience and honor the body, heart, and clear mind’s wisdom. In a community of fellow explorers, we ask potent questions, create moments of intentional movement and pause, and listen to our full intelligence within the stillness.
