Subject: Slow to Respond


Thanks for getting in touch! I have some opportunities for deep restoration and learning over the past 4 days and will be checking email sporadically- if at all - until Monday, June 23. If you would like to reach me immediately, please feel free to text or call me at ______________.

Interested in learning about upcoming ________________? Check out: ________________________.

I look forward to getting back to you as soon as I can.



Hello You!
Thanks for getting in touch.
I've got my auto-reply settings on, because I am continuing to nurse a brain injury after a dramatic fall on the ice last Valentine's Day.
This means I am resting and loving up my brain as much as possible to ensure a speedy healing.

I'm happy to report that progress has been made and this slower pace has been proving to be wonderfully beneficial as I continue to recover.
Thank you for your ongoing patience and encouragement as my online time continues to be limited and client-focused for the time being. If you are one of my beloved clients, know you are my VIP priority.

If you want in on that client action, you can become one! Check out Radical Creative Sanctuary for all the details.

And if you simply miss my voice and would like a self-love pep talk, please check out my new podcast The Soft Shoulder.

Have you given your brain a big loving hug lately?

Go for it.

May your days be full, of whatever you most desire.


*By the way, vacation settings for your email don't only have to be used
for actual vacations you know. Is there something you need to take a time
out for? Email will be waiting for you when you come back from the spa,
reading a book, or spending time with your lover. Trust me.


Subject: Reading books not emails this week!

Hi! Thanks for your message - I’ll actually be away from my inbox from
July 17-21st and look forward to responding starting July 22nd.

In the meantime, I will be reading “On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous”
by Ocean Vuong, “Educated” by Tara Westover, and “Revenge of the
Analog” by David Sax!

I’d love to know what you’re reading this summer - there’s nothing I
love better than sharing a summer reading list - so reply to this
message if you’re so inclined and I’ll look forward to checking out
both your original email and book rec(s) next week!

Take care,

ps. If your message is urgent and related to Artery, please email
Vladic at


Subject: In Maker Mode - Jonathan Fields

Hi there!

Thanks for reaching out.

I'm head's down working on a series of new endeavors. To do my best work, I've learned that I need to be largely in what I call "Maker mode." It's about being less reactive, more intentional and invested in doing the work I'm here to do on the level that allows me to be on-purpose, fully-expressed and in-flow. That means longer, more focused windows of creation, undisturbed by inboxes, updates, errant asteroids, chocolate (hahahaha, like that'll ever disturb me!) and more.

So, I'll be in my inbox way less often.

  • If your message requires a time-sensitive reply - kindly email My team there will take care of you, or know how to track me down for any truly time-critical responses.

  • If you're inquiring about availability for keynotes/speaking - kindly email Amy Taylor at

  • If you're pitching a guest for the GLP podcast - kindly use the form here and follow the stated guidelines. Due to the volume of inquiries, I can no longer accept pitches via email.

  • If you're sharing love for anything we're putting out into the world, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! You're the best!

For all other inquiries, I'll do my best to get back to any messages that require responses in as timely a manner as possible.

Thanks so much for your kind understanding. :)

Big love,



**Delayed Response to Emails


Thanks for getting in touch!

In order to decrease digital distraction, I respond to emails once per
day Monday through Friday.

Due to the volume of emails I receive on a daily basis, my response to
your inquiry may be delayed for up to 72 hours (or longer if you
contact me on the weekend), but I will get back to you as soon as I
can. If you need to get in touch with me sooner, PLEASE TEXT OR CALL
ME me at 206.414.8251.

If you are a potential new client seeking my services: my practice is
currently full and I am not accepting new folks right now so I will
likely not able to respond to your email.

Please see this link on my website for referrals to other excellent
therapists in town:

I am unable to provide custom referrals at this time.

Take Care,

Join me for an Upcoming Digital Mindfulness Retreat or Workshop!
