Birdi Sinclair - Begin Peace - Truth or Dare

Do not go where the path may lead. Instead, go where there is no path and leave a trail.

A Bit of My Story

I left home at 9. I was guided somehow, that this was a good idea. It took me years to talk about it to anyone because I simply wanted to live and be in the present with people and not be "different." I wanted to be more than my story and all the stigma that goes with having any kind of story.

My last escape was from a group home I had been at for a short time. I left high school and took the GED right after my 16th birthday, passed and enrolled in an accelerated community college program the same week. I had already filed papers to become emancipated prior to this last bolt, and completed a community college Associates program by the time my peers were graduating high school. To me, this was fascinating, because I essentially barely ever went to school much beyond 3rd grade. The universe clearly provided great opportunities for me to keep learning while my young life was so disrupted and chaotic.

By the time I was 17, I had traveled through the country, met some fascinating people filled with kindness, spirituality, lives of daring and richness that they were willing to share with me. I was parented by the universe. Was it all wonderful? No, of course not. Very few childhoods are ALL wonderful, so obviously, no. My inner guidance which comes from the land of mysteries and my experiences with so many ways of being, living, dying grew my sense of resilience, resourcefulness, my knowing of what is possible.

I continued my education, gaining certifications in areas like, Spiritual Direction, Life Coaching, Breathwork, Adult ADHD, Non-violent communication, Meditation: degrees, including 2 Masters, one in Therapeutic Arts/Spiritual Sociology, the other in interfaith theology, and a Doctorate in Sacred Dialogue, Engagement, and Activism.

I have specialist certifications as an end of life doula for people and animal companions, and in death literacy. I became ordained as an interfaith minister when I was a young hospice nurse facing the AIDS pandemic. People had deep spiritual and social needs. This was a powerful skill duo to help them find inner peace.

I focus on holistic care in developing growing/healing communication in relationships, easing major life changes, grief recovery, and death preparedness in mind, body and spirit, especially when there is a new chronic or terminal diagnosis. 

I also am a life artist and writer, and connected with the mystical and intuitive by culture and practice. These are some inborn languages of our spirit.

I love the question, Why do we hunger for beauty?

From here, I became a hospice nurse in the NYC area during the early days of AIDS, had a baby, chose "the wrong guys" for my spirit and goals in life, and started to try and live like a "normal person." Ok, whatever THAT means. It happens to a lot of us. My early years didn't set me up for understanding this very well.

 

So often in my life, I felt more like Mowgli from the Jungle Book, excited to join the Village of Man, and then disillusioned by what I found there.

Unable to go back to the Jungle, because now I was also changed, where did I belong? Where was home?

Like Mowgli, I had to look within myself. My core of peace and knowing that guided me as a very tiny person was waiting for me to remember. Home is within.

Truth or Dare - Choose your adventure and Be here now. Nothing to hide, or prove. Learn to be, not do.

How does who I am, all of this help you?

"Where we shift our gaze is what we'll see." ~ Birdi

I KNOW there is no reason for loneliness. There is no reason for hunger, fear, anxiety...

We all experience these things in our own way, and the world is complicated, and still, there is a way to care for your Self and for others well, regardless of our circumstances. You have read my story. 

I know, and I have devoted my life to training in science and spirituality to help you remember.

There are patterns we repeat, messages we embody, goals we wish for that seem out of reach, pains and sorrows we carry, AND we can heal, grow, discover. 

We can be connected. 

The only true possessions any of us have is our infinite worth, equality, and uniqueness. 

Where I help is to explore, heal, and grow your relationship with these with your inner self, with others, and with the world you engage with. 

We are created for a spectrum of all emotion, but primarily, we are created for love.

Many of us struggle with finding peace, staying present, and loving deeply because society, our backgrounds, and the complexities of life haven’t given us a roadmap. We're often at a loss when it comes to tackling tough topics like our fears of death, abandonment, loss, and change. Recovering from betrayals and forming new, meaningful relationships can feel overwhelming. Making confident life decisions? That's another challenge. We often don't know how to simply "be" instead of constantly "doing." And embracing our inner spirituality, separate from organized religion, can seem elusive.

 

We are all Mowgli in our own way, finding our harmony and wholeness as we grow through life.

My mission is to companion as many people and even animals to embrace love over anxiety in their decisions and actions, liberated from their wounds or fears, and gain inner peace in each chosen moment through clarity, confidence, and connection - no matter what their circumstances. 

Will you join me?

Together, in this way, we Ripple and Thrive! as individuals and as a world.

 My  Mission

My Method

My techniques are intentional and also responsive to your uniqueness. In my 30 years of learning, meeting, caring, teaching, presenting, honing, BEING with all of you, and myself, I have created some signature methods, processes that are tested and are as unconventional as my story. How could they be anything else? We are all one of a kind. I have devoted my life to life itself, in a spiritual and engaged learning. Everything I do is founded in science, spirituality, common sense, joy, a bit of the undeniable, natural mystical... and always kindness.

 

How many times have we said or thought, wished for a "manual" of life, death, parenting, partnering, deciding? I have scaffolding for you for exactly these times. In the many ways we can be together, sessions, classes, workshops, coaching plans, or even the products and art I have caringly created, they are all designed from this scaffolding, these signature techniques I have assembled and mastered to join you in your growth and challenges from a grounded, curious, useful, and purposeful place. 

Come on in. The music is probably poppin and my hands are into something. We'll have tea. There's always time, and always tea.

Thank you for sharing your time with me.
