WHY MIGHT YOU WANT TO WORK WITH ME?
Generally, because there’s something you want to change. For most people change is something to avoid. If you’ve read this far, I’m guessing you’re not like most people and you’re ready to get more out of your life––more in relationships, health, energy, your life path, or in applying your gifts to help others. What is perhaps most interesting is that people who have done deep spiritual work with me have also reported major changes in the material or “mundane” aspects of their daily lives.
WHAT ARE THE SPECIFIC WAYS YOU MIGHT WORK WITH ME?
Your choices are:
• Group Sessions
• One On One Work
WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO JOIN ME FOR ONE-ON-ONE WORK?
For one or more of the following reasons:
• A part of you is missing. Perhaps you’re feeling like you don’t have the vitality and passion for life that you once had. You might be suffering from “Susto,” or Soul Fright, when a spark of your vital essence left in order to protect you from some overwhelming event that you experienced either recently or a long time ago. At the present time you are feeling incomplete, as though some of the inner light you once had is gone.
• You feel stuck in some aspect of your life. Maybe it’s a relationship or keeping committed to your life path or you may have specific concerns about your career.
• You’re a healer who wants to find your unique healing gift and learn how to best use it in your practice.
• As a healer, you’re looking for your niche in the healing marketplace and want to connect your background and experience to a target population.
• You’ve experienced a significant change in your life situation. For example: a marriage or divorce, losing your job or finding a new one, the birth of a child, a health crisis or the loss of a loved one.
WHAT’S MY GENERAL PHILOSOPHY OF HEALING?
I call my work “Healing and Soul Coaching” for a reason you might not expect. I believe that your soul doesn’t need any change or “work,” because it’s perfect as it is. Healing lies in removing the layers of debris heaped on it by family, organized religion, society, and difficult or overwhelming experiences. Together, you and I can work through those layers to reinterpret and alter your experience of the world so your soul can shine again.
WHAT IS THE OVERALL PURPOSE OF THIS WORK?
The reason is to create positive change in your life. That means that we can begin in one of two ways:
1. You have a very specific goal in mind. We can then decide at the outset on a specific number of sessions in which to work on your stated purpose.
2. You explore with me in a more open-ended way. In that case we begin with a more general concern and then work toward your personal and spiritual growth and evolution.
IS THIS THE SAME AS PSYCHOTHERAPY?
No! It’s not about dysfunction that needs to be fixed. My work is based on a wellness model, which means we are not seeking to get you to “normal,” but instead becoming the best version of yourself possible without the obstacles that stand in the way. It is solution-focused and based on helping you to find meaning and purpose in all aspects of your life.
We consider your past only enough to see how it impacts you in the present moment, then work together to allow your inner wisdom to help you find your own answers. We work together without judgment to transform your identity in a conscious way. In the end, we often discover that the problem is the solution.
WHAT IS A SESSION LIKE?
A private session includes a combination of elements that are arranged as needed. Some of these elements are:
• Exploring your various Sustos and how they are interconnected.
• Soul retrieval work where we find the lost pieces of your true self and invite them and your lost energy back into your body
• Ceremony to separate the time of our work apart from your usual day-to-day life.
• Altar work to find symbols of your life and past experience and discover transformation through assigning new meanings to them.
• The use of narrative healing methods that offer alternatives to the way your life experiences have been up until now, including creating a new and more empowering narrative of your life journey.
• Prayer to invoke and invite your personal sense of the Sacred into the session.
•.Consulting the Oracle through any one of a number of divination methods to provide often unexpected insights into your specific situation. Rather than “fortune-telling,” this is an ancient method of illuminating where you are and where you are going based on a deep transpersonal knowledge that is beyond your limited day-to-day thought process. It is not an end in itself, but at some point it might help you to get “out of your head” and in contact with that place where your heart connects with the Heart of All That Is.
• Specific homework assignments to further the goals of the session.
• Trance work to engage your other-than-conscious mind to aid in moving toward the goals that are important to you.
DO WE NEED TO BE PHYSICALLY TOGETHER FOR OUR SESSIONS?
No. We can work just as effectively on Zoom. If you live near me and want to do a session in person, that’s possible, but we can do almost any process remotely.
