Launch Something; Learn Empathy

Posted on April 19th, 2018 · Posted in Energy Medicine, Health Should be Fun

An unconventional meditation

Posted on February 26th, 2018 · Posted in Energy Medicine, Health Should be Fun

I am not the type to sit quietly and cultivate stillness. I understand all of the reasons why I am supposed to, all the benefits for mind/body health. And yet, any time I have tried to sit peacefully for an extended period of time, what I end up with is..

The Power of One

Posted on August 30th, 2017 · Posted in Costa Rica Ramblings, Energy Medicine

Posted on July 3rd, 2017 · Posted in Energy Medicine

I am happiest when teaching a Specialized Kinesiology class. (Don’t tell my husband!) Any of them. All of them. Touch For Health, GEMS (Goal, Element, Mode Stack), SIPS (Stress Indicator Point System), TFH Instructor Training Workshops – I don’t care, they are all ridiculously fun to teach in their own..
