Authoring an intentional story of health~
‘Portrait of awareness’, in collaboration with artist Jayne Baron
My journey as a a creative healer recovering from temporary quadriplegia, a consequence of Guillain-Barre’ , a demyelinating disease of the peripheral nervous system, required a higher level of awareness. Fifteen years of yogic and meditation practice was vital in revealing and relieving the mental and physical story that I witnessed as pain and suffering. My purpose as a therapist & singer/songwriter is to allow others to create an awareness of health in their being and allow a new song or story to flow from and through creative application.
About ten years ago I returned to the Pacific NW to take respite from my graduate psychology program and heal from the autoimmune disease I contracted in 1996, prior to my continuing education. Temporarily residing with my family on Lummi Island, I envisioned a mind/body integrative practice in Bellingham that centered around creative therapy. Today, as a clinician and musician, I can offer this workshop and practice.
Focus of workshop~ Increase awareness using a mind/body integrative practice of:
- Resolution- of past dysfunctional stories.
- Recognition of holding energy through posture and expression.
