Denial of Addiction and Resentment

2018-06-23T07:55:49+00:00

I'm no stranger to resentment. I used to have so much resentment when my loved one would relapse and self-medicate with alcohol. When the demons of depression and anxiety took over, and he couldn't stop the impulse to drink, even when he didn't want to drink, I would get so angry. I would take it [...]

Spiritual or Energetic? The Power of Language

2018-12-07T15:32:12+00:00

I have recently committed myself to talking more about and teaching more about the effects of addiction- I see it as an epidemic of our culture and I have experienced its effects, and learned to handle it better from an energetic perspective. I am teaching a class, An Energetic Perspective on Addiction- a one- day [...]

When your teacher lives and loves what they teach

2018-12-07T15:45:11+00:00

My best teachers have been those who live what they teach, especially when it comes to skills that help you improve yourself, help you be a better person, help you grow, help you release stuff that no longer serves, and to learn skills you can use every day. To set energetic boundaries, to help live [...]

The Magic of Reiki in the Fall

2018-12-07T15:20:15+00:00

The Fall is my favorite time to teach Reiki classes- I teach them throughout the year, but there is something quite magical about introducing Reiki to my students in the fall, and this year Reiki 1 is "falling" on the weekend of the fall equinox. If you are on the fence to sign up or [...]

Reiki Share- Too Woo or What?

2018-12-08T06:00:39+00:00

After over four years of leading 5 Element Women's Circles, I started co-leading monthly Reiki Circles (Reiki Shares) in March 2017. The power of meeting in a circle is amazing - each time, I see again how we are all connected to each other, to the earth, to the the cycles of the seasons. After any [...]

Dancing with Anxiety: Medicinal Mushrooms and Creating Ease

2018-12-07T15:24:57+00:00

I dance with anxiety as part of my life. I would have once said that I struggle with it, now I say that I understand my anxiety and have a giant toolbox to help dance with my anxiety.  I think I have all my life, though I didn’t recognize it as that until I was [...]

Crazy, Love, Survival & Healing

2018-12-07T19:16:46+00:00

Recently, I listened to an interview with Alain de Botton on the On Being podcast, he spoke about the true hard work of love and relationships. The host, Krista Tippet, introduced him saying he speaks and writes about how love deepens and stumbles, survives and evolves over time, and how that process has much more to do [...]

Detachment: My Ticket to Serenity

2018-12-07T19:30:47+00:00

I’m rushing out of the parking lot of Whole Foods, I get to the parking ticket booth and I realize I don’t have my parking ticket. I feel tension in my shoulders as I scramble looking for the ticket. My breathing gets tight and I start to explain to the parking attendant that I dropped [...]

My Shitty First Draft- Why I’m Teaching An Energetic Perspective on Addiction

2018-12-07T15:29:49+00:00

ANNE LAMOTT: “Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor, the enemy of the people. It will keep you cramped and insane your whole life, and it is the main obstacle between you and a shitty first draft.” Here is my shitty first draft about why I am teaching the workshop, An Energetic Perspective on Addiction: [...]
