One to One


The Broken Record Effect

Long standing stories fire through your mind like music through a record groove, leading to long standing patterns of behavior, your rules for how to respond to events in real time. 


And yet...


You’re confused by anomalies that life has seemed to throw your way. You’re blocked by unexpected variables that do not fit within your framework for how to move through life. You’re locked in patterns of indecision and despair.


The stories are old. The grooves are worn out. The patterns no longer deliver. 


You know you need a change, but wonder, how, and where to turn? 


Avant-Dharma is here, precisely for this. 


Thomas Davis IV is the Founder of Avant-Dharma and a Contemplative Artist who offers Non-Clinical Counseling support strongly centered in the processes of integration and balance. Thomas brings over a decade of active Pastoral Counseling experience coupled with Buddhist Chaplaincy training to support people with the integration of: 

Mindfulness practices

Decision Making

Life Value Re-alignments

Reconciling Legacy Spiritual traditions


Thomas will guide you in ways that reveal the causes of these life impediments to realign you with your sense of clarity and intention, with a clearer emphasis on sustainable commitment. 


Over the past twenty years, Thomas has supported a range of seekers, practitioners, creatives and teachers who have benefitted from the perspectives and direction that he offers. Thomas’s services are focused supporting you to widen or to narrow their capacity to discover beautiful, underlying aspects of yourself. Thomas would be honored to have the opportunity to connect with you to see if you are aligned to work with each other.
