A gentle invitation for creatives, dreamers, and seekers of that ever-elusive “something more”

Live The Life You Long For

A 6-week journey of tapping into your inner voice to cultivate more joy, connection, and purpose in your life - no matter where you are right now

“I feel alive again! Connected, supercharged, and happily back on track.”

Paula M.



You’re here because there’s something tugging at your heartstrings

A background voice, whispering away… Growing louder with each passing year.

  • Is this really all there is? Going to work, doing laundry, picking up after the dog… Isn’t there something more out there?”
  • When was the last time you picked up those paintbrushes you have stashed in the garage? You always say you’d like to paint more…”
  • This is not working for me anymore. I want to do something else. I *need* to do something else.”


The longer you ignore it, the louder it will get

Unless you figure out how to translate that deep sense of longing into practical steps for cultivating more joy, peace, and connection in your everyday life.

(Hint: I just might be able to help you do that. But more on that later.)



“Life is about surviving, not thriving”

You have spent your entire life focusing more on making money to live…
Rather than doing what you feel in your heart
(No judgment here. Having your bills paid is a wonderful thing.)

You tend to prioritize other people’s needs above your own, watching your own desires slowly fade into the background as the years go by

You constantly worry about doing the wrong thing and making the wrong choice - so much so that it stops you from doing anything at all

Even though you make decent money and have plenty of people who love you, you still feel…


From yourself.
From the people in your life.
And from the greater fabric of the Universe.

It feels like you’re living your life from behind a veil…

And, no matter how hard you try, you can’t seem to figure out how to bring yourself back to the present moment.


“Living the life of your dreams” is not as simple as all those self-help books make it sound

But neither is it as difficult as your mind would like you to think.

The truth is, you don’t need to make bold, sweeping (read: terrifying) changes to have more joy, connection, and creativity in your life.

If that is what you choose to do…I will stand behind your decision and cheer you on every step of the way.

But you should probably know that there’s a simpler way to go about living the life you long for…

And it has nothing to do with quitting your job, waving goodbye to everyone you love, and moving to Bali to start your life-coaching business.


Your happiness is an inside job

Sure, some extra money would be nice. Maybe you’d like to take another vacation this year or have a cushier retirement account to fall back on

(Wouldn’t we all?)

But deep down, you already know that this longing you feel is for something much more… Intangible.

Peace. Contentment. Joy.

In short… It’s about the way your life feels on the INSIDE, not the way it looks on the outside.



A life of deep connection, creativity, and joy is within reach for you

But you need to give yourself the space to listen. Really listen.

To your own inner voice.

To your most authentic self.

To your Higher Power.

(Or Universe/Source/Spirit/God. Whatever name suits you best.)

And then slowly, step by step, begin to peel back the layers of conditioning and self-sabotage…

Until you’re able to start making small micro-changes that will slowly but surely fill your life with more purpose, connection, and joy.

And if you think you might need a little help tapping into that inner voice of yours…

I would be honored to take this journey with you.

“I was finally able to start making small micro-changes that helped me move forward”

“When I first met Uma, I was feeling really stuck.

I had a secure job that was keeping the bills paid, and I was really scared to do something different.

Uma helped me reframe a lot of limiting beliefs about where I was, and why I couldn’t get out of where I was.

She walked each of us through our situation, breaking down the barriers and the reasons we had for not taking action.

Because of this program, I was finally able to start making small micro-changes that helped me move forward in my life.”

- Roxanne D. (Photographer, Artist, and Insurance Specialist)


Walk alongside me into a life of joy, fulfillment, and purpose


Begin Where You Are

Lay down your armor. Exhale.

We will begin our journey together by giving ourselves the space to just… Be.

No goals to achieve.

No targets to strive for.

No “shoulds” to worry about.

Just a simple assessment of where you are right now…

And where you might want to go next.

Discover What You Want (More Of)

As you settle into the community space we’ve created together, you will slowly begin the process of (re)discovering your authentic self.

Your most important task?
Creating your Personal Manifesto.

Not only will it shine a light on the things you want (or don’t want!) in your life…

It will also act as your North Star thorough the entire program (and beyond).


Connect With Something Greater Than Yourself

You don’t have to be religious (or even have a well-defined spiritual practice) to take this journey with us.

But I will ask you to consider how connecting with something greater than yourself might serve you on your path to joy and fulfillment.

Together, we will develop your very own Personal Spiritual Guidance System

So that you can easily apply the principles of practical spirituality to your everyday life.

Liberate Yourself From “The Mind Jail”

When you begin to discover who you are and what you truly want, you will probably encounter some resistance.

It might show up as procrastination, fear, or even (and this is a sneaky one!) perfectionism.

That’s why we will do the deep inner work to uncover exactly what’s been keeping you from moving forward in life…

And how you can break out of the “mind jail” and begin to take real, practical steps towards creating the life you so deeply long for.


Take (Messy, Imperfect, Beautiful) Action

If you know me, you know I’m all about practical spirituality.

And even though so much of this program lives in the ethereal space of discovery, exploration, and healing…

I won’t let you leave this space without taking at least ONE concrete action step towards your dreams.

(Kidding. Sort of. Of course you can leave. After you’ve taken that step, that is.)

“All of my goals began to be realized, as if on a perfect universal roadmap”

“When I started working with Uma and began connecting with the life I truly wanted, I had thought it to be a far-off wish.

However, since writing my Personal Manifesto and participating in the group meetings, all of my goals began to be realized, as if on a perfect universal roadmap.

I’ve taken massive action over the past 8-9 months and have made brave changes that seemed large and looming, but in actuality were effortless.

I’m now living my life the way I envisioned spending my precious time on this earth.”

- Jacqueline B. (Children's Book Author, Course Creator and Corporate Trainer)


“So...What exactly do I get?”

The next round of Live the Life You Long For begins on April 16 and runs for 10 weeks.

Your experience includes:

3 x LIVE Workshops

Dedicated 2-hour sessions to work through any challenges you are experiencing and dive deeper into the work with the help of eye-opening journaling prompts + exercises.

All workshops will be recorded and the replays will be available inside your course portal within 48 hours.

3 x LIVE Integration Circles

Supportive 90-minute sessions to process whatever is coming up for you during this journey  + witness your fellow group members' go through their own transformations.

All Integration Circles will be recorded and the replays will be available inside your course portal within 48 hours.

3 x Self-Guided Mini-Workshops

Can’t make it to a live call? No problem.

Simply go through these bite-sized recordings to understand the core concepts we’re talking about…

Then come back to the workshop replays on your own time.

Supportive Worksheets & Workbooks

If a concept or an idea seems challenging to you, check out the Worksheet section inside your course portal.

That’s where you’ll find grounded, practical guidance + step-by-step processes you can follow to integrate the teachings into your life.

1:1 Support Pairings

At the start of the program, you will be paired with 1-2 of your fellow group members to create a small, tight-knit circle of support.

Partnerships rotate between workshops, so you will be able to connect with multiple women during the course of the program.

Private Sisterhood Community

You should never, ever feel alone while going through this journey.

That’s why, for the duration of the program, you will also get access to a private Facebook community where you can discuss any challenges that come up, ask questions, and receive support between our live sessions.

Weekly Office Hours

If you ever feel like you need a little bit of extra support from me between our live sessions, just pop inside our shared FB group on Mondays at 3:00 PM EST, and ask away.

I will definitely be hanging out there more often than that… But I hear a little structure can be good for the soul. 😉

Integration Weeks

Real change takes time.

To honor that, the program curriculum includes multiple Integration Weeks.

Catch up on the workshop recordings, or take a little break if you need to: the choice is yours!

“A total gift from the gods”

“When I started working with Uma, I was stuck in a stagnant cycle of self-doubt, inaction, and fear.

The support and guidance from Uma and her program have been a total gift from the gods.

Uma's group facilitation is gentle, yet powerful, allowing everyone to pinpoint the essence of their issue and find remedies best suited for their individual needs.

Her ability to ask questions and dig in *with* you to find solutions that are truly authentic is extraordinary.

She never tells you what to do, but listens deeply and asks clarifying questions to help unearth your own most urgent and profound need.”

Chhimed D. (Writer)

“I feel alive again”

“For the past year and a half or so I have felt as if I were living my life from behind a veil.

I felt disconnected in so many ways and truly felt like a stranger in a strange land in my own body.

After completing my journey with Uma I can tell you that I feel alive again.

I feel connected, supercharged, and happily back on track.

If you’re thinking about doing this, trust yourself and sign up.

You will not be disappointed!“

Paula M. (Office Manager)


Hi! I'm Uma. Writer, Mentor & Practical Spirituality Coach

I’m so honored to have you here, my friend.

If there’s one thing I want you to know before we jump into this adventure together…

It’s that the material I teach inside Live the Life You Long For is not something I simply read about in a self-help book.

I have spent decades dedicated to my own spiritual growth and awakening.



Falling down and getting back up again.

Everything I share with you has come to me through authentic experience.

More importantly, it’s been tried & tested during the good times… And the not-so-good times.

These days, I’m incredibly grateful to spend my days writing, teaching, and sharing this work with other women.

I feel connected, joyful, and in-flow every single day.

And even though I still have my own set of problems (of course I do - hello, that’s called being a human being living on planet Earth!), moving through life’s challenges has become almost… Effortless.

But… It wasn’t always this easy.

In fact, it still isn’t.

I’m no magical unicorn (even though some of my clients have described me as such).

For years, I struggled with substance abuse, low self-worth, and a constant depression/anxiety cycle.

I felt like I was groping for some kind of spiritual meaning in my life… But it always remained stubbornly out of reach.

At the same time, I managed to build a successful career as an ecologist/conservation biologist…

Only to abandon it (and the Master’s Degree it came with) at the age of 52.

But with each (mis)step, I learned something.

Each move I made brought me closer to what I choose to call God.

Closer to my purpose.

Closer to you.

But it took me a long time to get here.

(In case you didn’t know, I will turn 59 in September.)

To truly begin listening to my inner voice…

And start living the life I so profoundly longed for, right here, right now.

Now my deepest wish is to see you (yes, YOU) live your most authentic life. 

The one that you were born for.

You have a unique role to play in the awakening of this world, my friend.

And I’m here to guide you back to that, one step at a time.

Roxanne D-compressed

“She actually wanted to know how I was doing”

“Uma was just… Different. She actually wanted to know how I was doing, and what was happening in my life.

She wasn’t intrusive about it, it was totally up to me to connect with her. And I felt really comfortable doing that

Something about her energy just made me feel at home.

Roxanne D. (Photographer, Artist, and Insurance Professional)

“She never tells you what you should do or feel”

“Uma is a delightful, caring, sensitive, and empowering spiritual teacher.

She never tells you what you should do or feel.

She is gifted with wisdom and brings a deep listening that can transform a person’s internal perspective with a few simple phrases.

I’m forever grateful to you, Uma, and in awe of the courageous work you do.

Michele P Leaning Back

“I can finally look at myself and say “You’re doing good” - and mean it”

“All my life, I’ve had all these stories and these preconceived notions about who I should be, where I should be, at this stage of the game.

After going through this program, I’m finally able to see myself and be accepting of myself, just as I am right now.

I can finally look at myself and say “You’re doing good,”, and mean it.

- Michele P. (Artist, Angel Hawk Artworks - Spiritual Art for Sacred Spaces)

“My perspective on life has shifted completely”

“It’s not that I don’t have any problems anymore, or that I'm struggle free.

But, after going through LLYLF, my perspective on life has shifted completely.

I’m able to put some distance between myself and my thoughts and look at the bigger picture.

I’m no longer going into panic mode or getting stuck in my own head when I encounter challenging situations.

I just recognize them for what they are.

And I feel much calmer because I know that I’m going to be okay.

Roberta M. (School Counselor)



A community. A sisterhood.
A bond that will last a lifetime.

image (1)

Here are just some of the things these beautiful souls have said about being in this space….

“The group work and sharing feel very nourishing, emotionally and spiritually.”

“Being a part of this group has been so healing for me. It’s an open and safe space to share, and to just… Be.”

“It’s invaluable to have this group of spiritual cheerleaders on my side.”

“It has been beautiful to see my sisters in this program find growth, encouragement, and relief in this work.”

“I remember being really relieved because of the space Uma had created. There’s no crosstalk, no unsolicited advice. If you want to say something to someone, you ask them first.”

“It was an absolute pleasure to witness other women experiencing transformation in real-time.”


Here’s what I see for you, my friend

Before you know it, you will pull up your chair to join me and your fellow group members for the final Zoom call of this program.

You will feel refreshed, inspired, and ready to take on the world.

No longer questioning whether you can create the life that you want...

(Or wondering what it even looks like)

But knowing beyond a shadow of a doubt that anything is possible for you.

As you wave goodbye to your sisters, you will feel a deep sense of gratitude wash over you.

That sense of disconnection, isolation, and “otherness” you’ve felt your whole life will be gone.

Because the friends you make in this program?

Those are the kind of friends that stick around for a lifetime.

And when you close out that Zoom window at the end of our completion ceremony, you will do so with a smile on your face.

Because you already know…
This is just the beginning.



I see a life of deep connection, purpose, and joy waiting for you right here

The question is… Do you?
