A picture speaks a thousand stories: A client’s truth

I have to thank my client B. for allowing me to share this story. When she first started working with me, the concept of talking to and learning from her own body and inner wisdom was foreign. During our sessions together and also by participating in my Alchemy of Self Healing online class, B. found […]

Release Your Small Stories… Embrace the Bigger Canvas

In case you’re wondering, I’m referring to both the bigger canvas of the vast world around us as well as s-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g into the bigger canvas of you. Yes, the fabric of YOU. Why is this canvas critical to embrace for optimal creating and/or healing? Your soul needs room to Breathe. To create a new job, […]

Gifts and Patterns

Here’s an integrative way of taking stock of a year. It’s based on a craniosacral concept which I use as a jumping off point for a Gifts and Patterns exploration with VIP Day clients. The concept is called The Significance Detector and cranial therapists know that when this pause in the cranial rhythm occurs spontaneously […]

Inviting Miracle Mode

I was talking to a friend yesterday about the power that accompanies the habit of having conversations with one’s own body. She said “Oh yes, I think about what I want my body to do all the time.” “No, that’s not the same thing” I replied. She became confused. And I hear confusion like that […]

Create a Spontaneous Remission

You’ve heard about spontaneous remissions, right? In the context of Ripley’s Believe it or Not, you can imagine a woman limping — until she steps behind the magic curtain. And then comes out dancing a jig. Do you believe it? Maybe. Or maybe not. Frankly, Ripley didn’t care. But I do. Because I’ve seen truly […]

The Burnished Part of You

Lately my focus involves helping my clients get down to the burnished, formerly tarnished bits of themselves … and polishing those bits to a gleam. I’m reminded of the Leonard Cohen song about cracks being how light gets in. And of the Japanese art of Kintsugi, whereby broken pottery is repaired with veins of gold. […]

The liver who wished to be a gallbladder

Doesn’t that sound silly? And futile? And a little bit sad that a perfectly valuable liver would spend precious time wanting to be something else? You see where I’m going with this, right? No organ in your body wastes its precious time wishing to be a different organ. If it did, your body would feed […]

John of God or Drag Queen Bingo?

I’m turning 60 this year. And if you’d asked me yesterday, I’d have said I plan to go to Brazil to experience John of God for my birthday. Today? I’ve decided to stay home and book the Drag Queen Bingo folks in West Hollywood for a party. (I figure if I’m gonna be bingo age, […]
