I am convinced that what we are witnessing is extraordinary. Not just in the lockdowns, fear and suffering. Also in the opportunity to support each other in community. And in the healing of our environment.
This echoes what saints and sages have predicted for a long while: We are called to evolve spiritually in this crisis.
Remote healing sessions
At this time, I have closed my in-person practice. I am doing remote healing sessions by Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, or WhatsApp, and Doxy.me. Ortho-Bionomy®, and MABT are my remote healing practice specialties.
MABT, Mindful Awareness in Body-oriented Therapy
MABT has been especially useful for clients in these trying times. I teach or coach you to develop body-based awareness of emotions with sensations, and use gentle touch, positioning for comfort and the breath to access balance, healing, calmness, and integrate with your inner resources. Payment is optional.
How I started on the healing path
I had massive medically-mediated brain damage in my late teens and early 20s. The doctors told my father I would be a vegetable the rest of my life.
During my struggle to recover, I prayed that I would be allowed to turn my suffering into service. In 2009, I became a massage therapist. Now I am grateful to fulfill that dream and empower people to heal themselves.
I facilitate people to heal from physical pain or injuries, and to come to peace and balance emotionally. I teach people to develop love and compassion for their body’s intelligence and communicate with that intelligence as a source of wisdom.
Deva Communion offerings are now called Nature Communication. You learn to talk with trees, and with the Divine Intelligence in all life. Garden Communication classes bring balance not only to your garden , also to your relationship to the Earth as a healer and garden co-creator. Organically grown plants can “hear” your love for them. And it helps you connect through your heart with the earth.
I look forward to supporting your harmony with your body, all of nature, and your Divinity.
