My SkillsSessions are professional, safe and deeply honor each client's personal path and orientation. They naturally facilitate access to greater health, joy, self-esteem, laughter, structural alignment and spiritual clarity.
Some specific modalities may include: craniosacral therapy, somato emotional release, visceral manipulation, myo-fascial unwinding, lymph drainage therapy, esoteric healing, sound healing, therapeutic dialogue & imagery; Inner child, masculine, feminine & sub-personality integration; past lives, dream work, chakra clearing, grounded meditation, inner guidance, expressive movement and spiritual counselling, but mainly; a pure natural light-heartedness that helps us to align with our own true Self where we will find all the wisdom and love we could ever need to guide us through life's challenges and transitions from birth through death. I am also honoured to serve as a spiritual death doula and I also love working with all kinds of animals, but especially dogs, and with infants, children and teenagers. Skype long-distance sessions are a powerful option for energy/awareness/alignment/embodiment-focused sessions.
Articles & Books WrittenI am writing a book: Alchemy of Oneness, about healing and the central axis of the body-mind. Real healing comes down to the practice of consciously choosing our Inner Wisdom/peace/innocence/wholeness/acceptance/Source/Self/Love, instead of judgment, fear or division. These ideas were initially put to words in 2001 when I wrote a thesis: 'Living Christ Consciousnes: Unconditional Love, Non-Judgment & Equality'. But it's not about the words. It's about choosing Love's Presence, our very Essence deep within, above, below and behind, and learning to rest in it. In my experience, this is the way that permanent healing occurs. I am grateful that CranioSacral Therapy & Somato-Emotional Release are anchored in physical anatomical structure, which keeps the experience grounded, practical and specific. The inner alchemy that occurs through receiving treatments however, sooner or later, dissolves the notion of physical structure in pure seamless consciousness and ultimate awareness of Oneness. CranioSacral Therapy integrates body, mind and spirit. In the process, in right timing for each person (and maybe not this lifetime), awakening to non-dual Awareness is inevitable. Presence, or Love, or a deep resting in spacious holiness/wholeness becomes normal. We Are the thing we seek. It's not my business how, or when, this alchemy happens for each client, but I love being a sacred witness to your journey as I silently, or quietly, support your direct experience. I love the respect this therapy has for each person's access to their own rich Inner Wisdom. I love the creativity that emerges. I love the Love ... and in the end, only Love remains.
