Lalli Dana Drobny

KindMind Founder; Resonant Accompanist; Writing Coach, MA (U of IA)

Are you longing to be more fully seen and heard, ready to tune into what’s true for you, or simply wanting to focus on what matters most?  LALLI DANA welcomes you and your intentions. For decades, she’s helped folks embody their physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual natures. She offers a warm, welcoming space (online) for honesty and integration. Lalli particularly enjoys accompanying folks ready to release systemic pretense and let their authentic Human Beingness shine.

Lalli Dana’s current focus is accompanying individuals. She brings to her Resonant Healing practice 38 years of meditation (12 learning/serving in ashrams/retreat sites), 20 years of NVC practice, and a passion to nurture and encourage healthy neuroplasticity. For 40 years, she’s explored the mind/body/spirit interface: Polarity with Nancy Risley, Reiki with Jean Ferris, Psycho-Physical Therapy (and Couples Work) with Bill Bowen, Ayurveda with Susan Turner, Iyengar Yoga with Sarah Tuttle.

Lalli loves learning with folks of all ages. For three decades, she has integrated creativity, experimentation, movement, poetry, feelings/needs language, and meditation into schools and organizations as pathways to inspire self-discovery and build community. Eclectic and experiential, Lalli currently teaches Writing and Mindfulness at Santa Barbara City College, as a CA Poet-in-the-Schools, and quarterly online Writing Our Lives into Being workshops and WriteNow nests (smaller writing circles).

If you’d enjoy a 10-minute complimentary conversation to see if working with Lalli might be a next step for you, please reach out via email or her website.

I did three sessions via Zoom with Dana. I can say without qualification these were the most productive ‘therapy’ I’ve had. Much longer more traditional therapy sessions achieved less benefit. I credit this both to the method of memory recovery Dana employs and to Dana’s calming, warm, inviting, non-judgmental engagement with me as a client, which by disarming defenses enabled me to retrieve and unpack moments of consciousness to a degree I had not previously experienced. ~Dr. Stephen Vlastos, Emeritus Professor of History
