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 […]

Sensory Infusion

“When you realize nothing is lacking the world belongs to you.” – Lao Tzu   This saying is a real eye-roller for some clients. If it is for you, let’s make a shift! And for me, well, what helped me “get it” involved going beyond “realize” and into “embody.” How to embody such a vast […]
