Hello All~ Time flies, we get older and the world changes, either we make a conscious choice
to respond authentically to these changes, or as Carl Jung said: “they happen out of perforce
and the Universe chooses for us through fate.” My thinking and approach in working with others has
been influenced most by the teachings of psychoanalyst Carl Jung,
yoga master BKS Iyengar, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche,
who authored more than two dozen books on meditative practice, and Fritz Perls,
whose therapeutic approach focuses on insights into gestalts in patients and how it shapes their lives.
Why I chose to become a healer
I did not consciously choose this path; it chose me (see Carl Jung’s quote in first paragraph),
for me, surrender was the only way forward, after late one night, in 1990, while driving on one
of the most treacherous mountain passes in Colorado when I ran into a blizzard, hit road damage
that caused my car to spin, crash through a guardrail and flip over, landing upside down in a
riverbed. I suffered a traumatic brain injury and many other injuries, which provided both the
direct experience and the means to heal. The rest of the story brings me to this place with you
at this particular point in time.
I knew, deep inside, this experience and all I had learned from it required I share it with others.
Over time, I reclaimed and built a life that has been filled with challenges and adventures I never
imagined. What a journey...
The opportunities offered here represent the Gestalt of my life over
more than twenty-five years. I offer them to you with humility and gratitude.
