I feel most alive when offering my understanding of the relationship between the spiritual journey, the body, mind, emotions and subtle energy to help you to access the inherent goodness and beauty
of your unique and precious Life.
My greatest interest is exploring the profound contribution of individual healing to relationship, family, community, planetary and global healing.
Life wants you to heal. It’s that simple.
My primary offerings are soul coaching & meditation, and nutrition & health consultations.
My past studies continue to inform my work and interest in healing, both physical and spiritual. Beginning in the early 1980’s I studied fitness and movement, nutrition, the human energy field, yoga and meditation. I became and worked as a certified yoga instructor, and a registered holistic nutritionist; I have a master’s degree in exercise physiology, and a black belt in the Nia Technique (a holistic movement form); although I now work with energy intuitively, I’ve studied various forms of energy work and attained personal mastery in Reiki Tummo; I attended a year-long study of mindfulness meditation in clinical practice with Michael Stone and immersed myself in the study of mysticism with Thomas Huebl for 2 years. I have participated in the Medical Medium Practitioner Support Service and continue to learn and apply the information that Anthony William shares in my nutrition practice.
I’ve been a student of the American-born spiritual teacher Adyashanti since 2006 and have attended numerous silent retreats with him, in addition to regular personal silent retreats of up to 40 days. Some of the other teachers that have had a deep impact on my unfolding are Sharon Landrith, Nisargadatta, Mukti, Byron Katie, Paramahansa Yogananda, and Anastasia. Nature, plants and animals have been mighty teachers.
Over the past 30 years I’ve taught and worked with thousands of students and clients, developed numerous courses, and led various retreats.
I am a faculty member of:
- The Canadian School of Natural Nutrition
- Sarana Institute Young Adult Program
- Indigo Yoga Teacher Training Program
Beyond my formal education, what primarily informs what I teach and share are various awakenings, big and small, that I’ve experienced over the past 30 years.
Although I was aware of a deep interest in personal growth from a young age, it wasn’t until the birth of my first child in 1988 that I consciously experienced direct soul to soul contact and the beginning of the dissolution of the barriers around my heart. This reconnected me with a deep hunger for truth and a desire to serve the world in any way that I could. I became painfully aware of my conditioning and this led to many years of exploring and studying all things health and spirituality related, some of which you read above. During those early times I had many losses, including my marriage ending, losing my home, having to move my family multiple times, and filing for bankruptcy. I was immersed in a simultaneously intense and exhilarating spiritual journey, all of which I did as a single-mother of 2 children, a business owner and householder. I’m grateful for all of the help and support that came my way. Although it was extremely challenging at times I always sensed that it was possible for me to wake up to my true nature in the midst of mainstream life. To not heed my soul’s longing felt like a death.
Here are some of the significant awakenings that I experienced in the early days:
Oneness with the Earth
In 1996, while in Portland Oregon at a Brown Belt NIA intensive I had a profound experience of being a native woman sitting in a clearing by the edge of a small lake. I suddenly became the earth beneath me and felt the profound joy of union but simultaneously the pain that the Earth is currently carrying. As the tears flowed, energy was shooting out of my body in all directions and I was completely immobilized for about an hour. Later as I recovered, I felt significantly lighter in every way, yet more committed to living an authentic life, and more profoundly concerned with the care of our planet.
The perfection of every relationship
A couple of years later, I had just completed a weekend of studying a particular type of energy work. I came home and ran a bath. As I sat in the bath, my kids’ rubber duck on the edge of the tub transformed into every significant person that I had encountered in my life, one at a time, along with a deep knowing of what each had taught me. Once again I found myself immobilzed by the tears (of gratitude) and energy releases. Being home alone, I found myself sitting in a very cold bath an hour later. The gift of this experience was that I deeply understood that every person in my life had played a significant role in my soul’s evolution.
Who I Am cannot die
One evening, around the same time in my life, I attended a drumming circle and was invited to lay down in the middle of the group. It didn’t take long to begin to experience what I believe was a past life. I saw myself tied to a stake with at least one other woman, in the middle of a village square. The fire had just been lit and I could see the faces of the townspeople watching from all around. I saw many angry faces, and heard their accusations, but I also saw kind eyes in the crowd. I left my body before I felt the fire and sensed myself spiraling up towards the Infinite. I experienced for myself that I am so much more than my body, and that my soul is eternal and untouchable.
Communication with spirit guides
In 2004, a series of events led to a fortuitous meeting with a man who discovered a profound gift for channeling while receiving energy work from me. As his gift unfolded we were guided to offer readings to private clients and occasionally large groups. Over the course of the next two years I was in ongoing direct contact with my spirit guides (including Edgar Cayce) through him and received an education on the path of the soul, particularly how it relates directly to our physical well-being: how to connect to our true nature and how our challenges, health and otherwise, are simply and always a form of guidance from a benevolent God / Creator / Universe.
These are just some of the significant events that have brought me to where I am today. Everyone’s story is special and unique. For me, these intense personal and paranormal experiences shook me to my core and woke me from the dream of who I thought I was. The next 10 years or so were mostly about digesting and integrating those early awakenings and embodying the realizations.
Nowadays, life is simultaneously ordinary with normal human challenges, and at the same extraordinarily smooth. I don’t get caught in negative states, at least not for very long and there is an ongoing sense of peace and ease. I continue to be stretched by Life and to explore what it means to live a life of Soul. Although I’m so much more aware of myself as a spiritual being I continue to be fascinated by the process of physical healing. I love sharing my understanding with whoever is drawn to my work.
The following are fundamental to this work and stem from my direct experience:
- Trusting the body’s capacity to heal any condition given the right conditions.
- Recognizing that the laws of health are written in your cells and are revealed as you progress on your spiritual path.
- Learning to be a good steward of the physical body which is your soul’s vehicle.
- Using your current circumstances as a doorway into a deeper understanding of your true nature.
- Recognizing that living the fullest expression of who you are extends beyond your own life and benefits your family, community, and all life on earth.
- Opening to both light and shadow aspects of yourself, and understanding how to work with them.
- Mastering the energy body to free blocked emotional energy as well as false beliefs, and to access the true healing current of Life.
- Understanding the intricacies of the spiritual journey so that you can trust and relax into the sometimes challenging phases of your evolution.
- Accepting the simple and profound gifts of nature, through sustainable living, natural foods, wild plants, growing some of our own foods, spending time in ‘wild’ areas with receptivity to the many elements: seasons, animals, birds, reptiles, insects, trees, plants, soil…
