I am a certified Esogetic Colorpuncture Therapist. Esogetic Colorpuncture is an alternative form of medicine much like Acupuncture. Esogetic Colorpuncture works with color and light and is noninvasive. The color and light work with wave lengths and frequencies to help bring balance. I recommend exploring the website: colorpuncture.org. Esogetic Colorpuncture helps support my bio/psycho/spiritual/social/emotional approach to healing the whole person.
I created my own Labyrinth and will offer the use of the labyrinth as a prayerful, meditative tool to promote calm and stability. The labyrinth supports my spiritual approach to healing the whole person.
I have participated in CEU’s and other trainings, with mindfulness. I incorporate these techniques into my therapy sessions. One-Minute Mindfulness: 50 Simple Ways to Find Peace, Clarity, and New Possibilities in a Stressed-Out World is one book of many on the subject from which you could learn more.
I value my spiritual/faith life. I incorporate elements of Spiritual Direction into my therapy sessions when appropriate. I am available for Spiritual Direction individual meetings. I have an undergrad in Theology and my Masters degree in Professional Counseling, preparing me for this. I also believe in a life long faith/spiritual journey. I therefore continue to participate in activities, presentations, retreats and more to keep on my journey, constantly growing.
I am white belt trained in NIA. NIA is a form of fitness and well being that is a fusion of martial arts, dance and healing arts such as yoga. NIA supports my physical approach to healing the whole person. I am currently not offering NIA opportunities through my practice. I support and encourage NIA. I invite you to explore the website for opportunities to participate in NIA: nia.com
Rest: Resting in Love
How do we come to know love so that we can live from its depths? Love cannot be understood by the mind. And if God is love, God will never be subject to the mind as we know it. God and love can only be experienced. This simple practice is an invitation to encounter love in its very physical, connective reality.
Place the palm of one of your hands on your heart. Feel your heart beating, letting its rhythm bring you into the present moment and into the awareness of God’s blessing on your life, beat after beat after beat.
Bring to your conscious mind a loved one, a favorite place or animal, or anything that makes you smile with undeniable, spontaneous, unconditional love and joy.
Bring that particular beloved being or thing down from your mind and place it right under your palm into your heart space. Relax your mind and let your heart relax at the same time, feeling the sensation of blood vessels, muscles, and chest cavity opening in warmth and love for that particular loved thing. Smile.
Now humbly place a challenging person, issue, or problem directly under your palm, within your heart space that is wide open. Silently continue to smile and hold this challenging thing in the warmth of your heart.
With closed eyes, look at the thing that causes you pain, visualizing the detail that bothers you the most, all the while smiling. Consider that there may be reasons why this thing brings hurt. Smile at the fragility, suffering, or misunderstanding that makes it this way.
Finally, give the person or problem to your heart and ask that your heart’s wisdom and love take over. Rest in the Love that loves you and the other and wants to transform all into its loving image.
