Services

Please consider paying the highest rate on the sliding scale in order to open the doors wider to those who are living in the oppressive systems designed for white supremacy. For each individual who pays the highest rate on the sliding scale, I will reserve one gratis space for a member of the LGBTQIA and/or BIPOC community for Deep Listening, Centering Circles, and/or Coaching work; Facilitation and Education work will be reserved at one half-the-cost.  If you are a member of either of these communities and cannot afford the rates listed below, please contact me directly – msrudderconsulting@gmail.com.

1:1 Deep Listening Sessions

Sliding Scale: $35 – $60 per 60-minute session

A an opportunity to be witnessed. To share in a safe, nurturing, judgement-free space, what it is that you are carrying with you. What it is that you wish to lay down. What it is that you wish to speak as your truth. What it is that is alive for you in these complicated and unknown times. This is not a therapeutic environment; this is an opportunity to experience what it is to have someone fully present to bear witness to your unique  experience of being human.

Centering Circles

Sliding scale: $20 – $50; approximately 2-hours per circle

A sacred practice that nurtures relationships with ourselves and others in an inclusive and reflective environment.   In Centering Circles we sit in silence, pass our turn, or speak without interruption. The circle cultivates an opportunity for deep listening, respect, and the raised consciousness of our shared stories. Each person is welcome to bring their whole self – their minds, bodies, spirits and emotions, as we explore the intersectionality of our embodied experiences. I acknowledge the Indigenous Peoples as a source of wisdom and learning that grounds and informs my current practice of the Circle process and donate 21% of all proceeds to the the elders of the different indigenous traditions of which I have learned from.

Coaching 

Sliding scale: $50 – $150 per session

Group Coaching sliding scale: $40 – $110 per person per session; minimum of 3 and maximum of 6 individuals at this rate.

This 1:1 work will help you to engage more freely with world views and perceptions that differ from your own, explore the art of dialogue by activating your capacity to listen, and learn how to utilize language in a way that is affirming, empowering, empathetic, and provides agency to yourself and those around you.

Sessions generally run from 60 to 90 minutes via phone or Skype; an initial free 20 minute consultation to clarify goals and our strategy for achieving those goals is necessary. Additional resources, readings, exercises, and explorations will be provided for the times between coaching sessions.

Facilitation

Sliding scale: $75 – $200 per hour depending on the goals of the group. This may or may not include preparation work prior to the facilitated event.

Are you seeking to undertake a group dialogue in your personal or professional life? Whether you are looking to create a strategic plan of action or simply want to engage in a complex conversation to explore the needs of the individuals and the group, I can provide a supportive, organic structure that allows you to dive into the work at hand.

An initial free consultation by phone or in-person is necessary to establish the goals and create the appropriate structure to meet those goals.

Education

Rate: $75/hour including planning and delivery or per-person charge depending on the type of workshop or long-term course you are seeking to undertake.

Interactive Short Workshops & Long-Term Courses are also available. These educational experiences focus on: cultivating skills in the areas of active listening, giving/receiving feedback, strategies for difficult conversations, understanding values as it relates to world views and conflicts, identity and its role in conflict, identifying and neutralizing the physiological impact of conflict,  and the impact of language in conflict.
