Growth, New Name, and offerings for you in the month to come!

Wow, it’s been such a long time since I’ve written a blog!! Please know I have been plenty busy growing myself, expanding the reach of my work and offerings.
I am just finishing up my last class of my second year of advanced chakra study with renowned teacher/healer, Cyndi Dale, and also a chakra class with one of my most revered chakra teachers, Anodea Judith.
I am always deepening myself as I am committed to my own personal healing and growth which allows me to hold a very deep, sacred and safe space for your transformation.

“The Rose’s Rarest Essence Lives in the Thorns” – Rumi

I’m really tired and I promised myself I would write this blog. It seemed in my present exhaustion, I could not think of a damn thing to write about! I really prefer to write from inspiration. I was thinking I would write about the holidays, the fight I saw in a restaurant parking lot at lunchtime, or the upcoming solstice and full moon. None of these ideas were taking shape or flowing smoothly. Rumi to the rescue!! I pulled out my 365 Selected Quotes – Rumi book and did what I usually do, I opened it up to a page hoping to come upon some inspiration, which I did! I  fanned the pages a few times and opened to page 34.  Read more

Intuition

I spent the weekend in Minneapolis finishing up a 9-month Intuitive Healer Apprenticeship Program. So many of you are fascinated by this. I have received several messages asking about this concept of developing intuition. Not sure if this will feel like good news or bad news. We all have intuition. We can all develop our unique expression of our intuition.  How, you ask? We need to heal our blocks and wounds around our intuition. We can consult people to tell us about our gifts and our lives. That can sometimes lead to us turning over our power to another person. In the work I do, I help you into your own body to connect with your own intuition and your own ability to heal. I want to help you develop and own your own power. In the work I do, we utilize the chakras as an entry/exit point. Read more

This is how I cook – This is how I live!!

I was talking with a friend the other day and she mentioned she is going on a Leadership Retreat in France sometime in 2019. The Retreat Leader is a chef and they will be doing cooking lessons and relating how they cook to their management style. It made me reflect, as cooking is a huge passion of mine and a really big part of my life and connecting with people. Those of you who have come to my events and workshops, know what pleasure I take in preparing a festive, soulful and beautiful meal. It is part of my offering. A Ritual Food Celebration! That simple ritual of breaking bread together, moves me to my core.
