Chiron Gong Sound BlessingIMG_0909

June 15th 
reply to this email to reserve your spot 

Join me for qi gong, vocal sounding & centering exercises, and a meditation journey with the Chiron Gong.

Why Now?
It’s that time of year as we approach the summer solstice and the planetary body of Chiron goes retrograde 
(June 27th - Nov. 30th, 2016). 

This is an opportunity to come together and bask in the multi-dimensional sounds of the gong. 

I have been interacting with this gong since 2008 and the sounds and vibrations that emanate from this magical entity never cease to amaze me . It is an inanimate object with life. It has earned the title of “other worldly”, and  “angels singing with an orchestra”. Whether you’re a seasoned Chiron gong groupie or a first time curious newbie you are welcome.

Is it time to decompress? 

Come on in for self-care, you deserve it! 

Everyone and everything will benefit if you are centered and well cared for.

I have my favorite Resonation Acupuncture stress release treatment, fondly titled “the oil change for the qi”. 
It allows the latent stress and toxicity to clear out of the various organ systems, giving you a chance to replenish with a fresh sense of life force. 

I am ready to support you through the various, inevitable waves of life and help you anchor in the unwavering grace that is ever present.

summer is coming2
We've passed the half way mark between the spring equinox and the summer solstice. 
I love this time of year.
I love that we are still approaching the longest day of the year, the summer fun ahead, warmer days, playing outside, eating berries... 
What a great time to align with the "do nothing" Productivity of Fun Mentality which is the feature article of this Newsletter.

Do Nothing... 
woman surrender
Accomplish Everything! 

As we tip toward the summer season (the season of Joy in the Chinese 5 Elements) I would like to explore the productivity of FUN!

Contemplate that just doing something -busy work- isn’t productivity.  In the doing of “nothing” we have the opportunity to BE, to stop, get quiet and feel flow. When we are in the flow it feels good; we allow inspiration to guide our actions.

floating in river

It’s impossible to push the river of life - let the current carry you.


In this flow, the “Accomplish Everything” portion of the equation comes into play.

Doing nothing doesn’t mean lazy boredom. 

My “do nothing- accomplish everything”-grace-flow-sweet spot these days is on the ocean stand up paddling. My main objective is to feel as much joy as possible. It consistently produces opportunities I’m excited to follow up on. It’s always fun to see who tuned into my joy vibe. 


If you’re sorting out a “sticky” situation- where you just keep hitting blocks- I encourage you to stop, drop it from your thoughts and go do something you enjoy… take a nap. It is not denial or avoidance, it is redirecting your energy to the productivity of relaxation and fun.

This concept works beautifully with our health. The more we worry and fret over the current state of our body, the more we live into our fears. If there are conditions/symptoms that concern you I invite you to try this… Distract yourself from the conditions/symptoms with thoughts that are completely unrelated and feel really good. Again, I’m not encouraging you to avoid, deny and resist. It’s actually the opposite. This activity signals that you affirm and trust that the wisdom of your body and being will sort it out if you can relax.


When we relax, we allow the innate benevolence of all that is, from galaxies to our cells, to shine forth and


shower us with goodness. 

We allow inspiration to guide us to the appropriate information, resources, and practitioners. The choices you make from this ease-filled state are exponentially more healing and productive. If your relaxed state of fun loving goodness inspires you to contact me I most definitely look forward to hearing from you. Or if you're experiencing blocks finding this relaxed state of being, I'm happy to help you find your flow.


Blessings... spring cleaning style

I spent a chunk of time earlier this spring clearing out my patient charts. It was a heart-warming process to reflect on y'all: to see the progression of my growth as a practitioner over the last 12 years and to feel a lot of love. 

I am mega blessed to do what I do, to share in the journey of your growth and evolution, to “get the qi moving” and assist in the wisdom of your body to do what it does so well: heal, thrive, transform and evolve.

Whether you came 1 time or 200+ times, I have been blessed by the opportunity to help facilitate the ease and grace that is ever-present. To support you in your health and wellness is an honor and a pleasure.

During this process a handful of you whom I had not seen in years contacted me. Our thoughts and emotions touch one another. I knew this but it was a fantastic affirmation.

Thanks for reaching out (via email or in your thoughts). I LOVE it!

I had not thoroughly understood the positive heart warming impact each person has had on my life. It’s a cool experience to have documented each visit and have an opportunity to reflect on the preciousness of the interactions. It leaves me with an awareness that we are having profound experiences in the everyday interactions of our life.


Just for fun… think of someone you love whom you hands and lighthave not seen in several years. Spend a few minutes mulling over the goodness you shared as your lives intersected and bless yourself with the memories. Release these positive thoughts and emotions and send this individual your “good juju”. If any of you end up with a fun story after engaging in this experiment I would love to hear it.

Blessings of love and gratitude from my heart to yours,
