The Deep Living Approach

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

The Deep Living Approach is a deeply spiritual application of the Enneagram and EnneaCrossings. It draws on more than 30 years of writing, teaching, and coaching by our founder, Dr. Roxanne Howe-Murphy. To learn more about her evolving work, visit her website.


Practice in Community

Our offerings guide 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 pause, and listen to our full intelligence within the stillness. 


Together, we explore…



With radical compassion, courage, trust, and honesty, we uncover our true nature and stop the search. We recognize there is nothing to fix: we experience ourselves and see others as they truly are. We embrace our whole selves, including the parts we may internally “fight with.”  



  • Essential Holding: embodying our internally sourced experiences of belonging, love, security, and guidance. We touch this foundational capacity when we are in direct contact with ourselves.
  • Essential Trust: recognizing the dynamism and change inherent in life and acknowledging a greater intelligence at work. Through this orientation, we naturally release illusions of control and meet the unknown with wonder.
  • Essential Connectedness: staying in deep intimacy with ourselves as we open to our sacred relationship with all that is seen and unseen. Sensing into our interconnectedness, we explore the mysteries of the heart and levels of consciousness.
  • 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. 


When we expand our capacity for engaged presence, we create ripples that radiate beyond ourselves. Our way of “being”  reverberates through our clients and relationships, bending the arc in a universal movement toward wholeness and interconnectedness.
