The transformations are quick and lasting when you get the real stuff." - Software Executive, NYC


“I had been going through a really rough time—feeling isolated, stressed, worried and frustrated with life. In two phone conversations, James Connor managed to help me to face my demons, and to use the Dharma to tackle them. He asks insightful questions, pauses to allow thinking and processing time, and helps me face life with compassion and commitment to ending my suffering. I now feel soft, loving, and genuinely happy. His phone coaching sessions have been indispensable to me.”  - School Teacher, CA


“Kristin is a superb listener and can quickly identify what is really going on with someone. It’s so refreshing to talk to someone who really cares about your happiness and goes beyond conventional advice.” - Writer, NYC


“After going through a divorce, getting laid off, and coming close to homelessness, I was stuck in hopelessness. I sent out many resumes but couldn't even get an interview, despite having a strong set of skills and great work experience.  James did some deep listening, and uncovered for me some very self-limiting stories I wasn't even aware of.  He gave me meditation exercises that cut right to the heart of what I needed to do to free my potential and have it flower.  A matter of weeks after we began to work together, things started to move in my life—interviews, job offers, debt forgiveness, and needed information began to flow in.


James brought outrageous depth, sensitivity and sophistication to bear on my situation.  There was nothing cookie-cutter or formulaic about his suggestions.  They connected with me deeply and with immediacy.  Unlike mass-market self-help ideas, they astonished me—I could never have come up with them on my own, even though I consider myself fairly intelligent about such things. James' touch is subtle and sure.


Working with James helped me jettison beliefs that were no longer serving me and get in touch with what I really want, cleanly and clearly.  He showed me new, fresh ways to look at problems and goals that subtly shifted my orientation and allowed me to move forward out of stuckness. He restored hope in me and put me back in touch with the possibility of a joyful life."  - Marketing Executive, MA

Kristin Walsh


Kristin spent over three years in deep retreat investigating the nature of mind and its patterns. Now she’s focused on actually helping people in a direct way with the wisdom that she gained.


For almost a decade prior to retreat, Kristin worked by day as the senior art director for the national non-profit Teach For America. There, she managed and coached designers to inspire creativity and fresh thinking, and to keep motivation high and relationships positive. By night, she practiced and taught martial arts, yoga, and meditation. Because of her desire to help others, Kristin is a natural coach and teacher.


Kristin’s life has been dedicated to identifying things that don’t produce happiness and replacing them with things that do, based on tried-and-true, ancient wisdom. Now, her greatest wish is to help others to do the same. What’s gained in one-on-one coaching sessions won’t be band-aid advice, but wisdom and tools for life.
