My Background

My Preparation, and doing this work.  I have experienced, learned and gained insights from numerous self-development workshops, retreats, and energy works to prepare to do this work.

I have learned, for myself and clients, how to:

  • Bring forth physical and spiritual integration and wholeness by Agnes Sanford in Schools of Pastoral Care
  • Understand, observe and assist clients in bringing forth their positive energy by Jeff Krock
  • Assist clients in removing mental blocks and shift their thinking by the Avatar organization (up through their Mastery Program)
  • Identify and remove blocks, and to tap into creativity, vision and spiritual connections by Keith Varnum through his Vision Quests and Dream Workshops
  • Focus energy down a person’s central core to eliminate energy blockages, and to bring about a desired state as a former Certified Practitioner and Instructor of Yuen Method© Full Spectrum Living
  • Make quantum connections to eliminate energy blockages through Matrix Energetics©

I have increased perceptions, awareness, mindfulness, knowing and skills in how we humans:

  • Use our energy,
  • Increase or decrease our well being, and
  • Use it to bring wholeness and presence.

And Finally

In some self-development programs, people are encouraged to write their own epitaph – how they want to be remembered – as a means of better understanding their purpose and strengths.  While at a funeral, when the person’s epitaph was being discussed, another draft of my epitaph came to mind.  It is: “I stumbled frequently, got up and learned from it.  From there I helped people to let loose of their chains, to fly, and to live their lives with joy.  I lived my life with joy.”
