SO, YOU'D LIKE
TO KNOW MORE
A few things that may make me interesting:
I LOVE WHAT I DO FOR A LIVING.
I'm a Certificated Massage Therapist, 3rd-degree Reiki practitioner/teacher and licensed psychotherapist, with a master's degree in Clinical Holistic Health Education. My private practice is CranioSacral Therapy and Reiki. These modalities speak keenly to me with respect to the ability of the human system to respond powerfully to gentle touch and subtle, therapeutic nudges --
the "less-is-more" perspective.
I HAVE A PASSION FOR TEACHING.
Next to working with clients, teaching is my favorite way to refine my work and keep it fresh – from instructing six years for a massage therapy program in my early career, to creating my own workshops for stress reduction, personal growth, Reiki -- and now, blogging!
I like to try out new things that
often stick with me for a while.
At the moment, my activities range from something old to something new – testing out blogging and Zoom teaching for the new, revisiting sewing, crochet, and drawing for the old.
I spent 14 years studying martial arts (beginning at age 40): karate, Chinese internal martial arts, and the energetics of Taoist yoga. I continue still with tai chi chuan and Taoist yoga practices.
Then, on to ballroom dancing for four delightful years before resuming piano lessons on the dear instrument with which I grew up. I’ve fallen in love with the learning and with the playing. I'm approaching five decades with my lovely husband, who shares my love of music and doesn't mind hearing passages over and over as I learn new pieces.
A friend introduced me to SoulCollage® in 2010. I immediately resonated with this rich process for connecting with my inner world and with the vibrant like-minded and like-hearted community with whom I share this wonderful, juicy work.
Among other current interests are reading (eclectic, leaning strongly toward cozy mysteries), music (eclectic - truly, don't ask me to choose favorites), cooking (primarily Mexican, Italian, and Indian cuisines), watching movies (eclectic, though dominantly SciFi), and enjoying meals with friends. We currently share our home with Diva and Rogue who you'll run into from time to time on this website.
WHAT ABOUT YOU?
Perhaps you'll visit me here occasionally, dipping into thoughts and practices for being good to yourself and energy healing. Perhaps you'll return for my blog and the body of references and tid-bits growing larger with each article – reading resources, videos, and music intended uplift, inspire and inform.
If my offerings stir something within you, something of worth to you, perhaps time you spend with me becomes an added resource for being good to yourself, and for this, I would feel truly honored.
