WHO INSPIRED ME

My intention for creating this page was to share my list of resources, though as the words flowed through me, it became one of acknowledgments as well. I've separated this page into 3 aspects of ourselves according to their healing impact, though as we know, these facets are all divinely interwoven.  

With deep gratitude to all - seen and unseen, human and other than human - who have offered the infinite resources of love, patience, wisdom and support along my journey. Perhaps those of you visiting this page will find something of synchronistic value here as well. 

And to all who have crossed my path, who are not included on this page, know that the language of my heart is speaking in silent words of reverence through all time and space.  

"To love ourselves and support each other in the process of becoming real is perhaps the greatest single act of daring greatly.” – Brene Brown

HEALING THE PSYCHE

John Bradshaw

John Bradshaw was one of my first male teachers in 1988, a time in my life when I became more conscious of my spiritual path. His work offers a deep exploration into your family dynamics and how they may have impacted you and your life. His loving and strong male presence and perspective can help you heal unresolved childhood trauma, especially related to masculine wounding, so that you can more fully embrace your child-like joy and wonder.

Harville Hendrix, Ph.D. & Helen LaKelly Hunt, Ph.D.

Imago therapy (Latin word for imaging) is a relational therapy that teaches you to hold intimate loving space in your partner relationships. You learn how your own childhood wounding, as well as your partner’s, may be keeping your relationship from flourishing. This therapy teaches you grounded ways of communicating to enhance relational safety and connection in a more loving way.

Shakti Gawain

Shakti Gawain’s work helps expand your perceptions of reality through a grounded step-by-step process. In a nourishing and loving way, she helps you discern between your mind’s chatter and your strong intuitive guidance. She has created guided meditations to help you more fully embody and expand your imagination and live in the light.

Carl Jung, Ph.D.

Carl Jung’s passionate leadership and pioneer work is vast and includes the field of synchronicity, depth psychology, archetypes, shadows and so much more. His teachings and books have helped tremendously in expanding the field of traditional psychology and synthesizing it with more spiritual concepts. His work can help you more easefully bridge these two worlds.

Brene Brown, Ph.D.

Brene Brown is a leader in the research of shame and vulnerability. She has many books and creative programs to help you understand and more fully embody these human experiences. She is very authentic, humble and light-hearted, and what I find especially liberating are the deep belly laughs that she evokes during her Ted Talks (listed below) when sharing about topics that "no one wants to talk about".

HEALING THE BODY

Shirley MacLaine

Shirley MacLaine has a powerful female presence. She helps you more fully embrace your WILD nature and shed layers of fear and shame about other’s perceptions of you.

I found her Chakra, as well as her Love and Forgiveness meditations to be particularly nourishing as they helped create a tender loving space to reclaim my projections.

Rochelle Schieck

Rochelle Schieck is a passionate, loving and powerful teacher and healer. She created Qoya “a movement system based on the idea that through movement, we remember”. She is devoted to helping you more fully embody your true essence, which she shares is “Wise Wild and Free”. Her movement practices are loving, transformative, and gently invite ALL parts of you to feel Sacred. Our ceremonial sessions and her trust in my process were extremely liberating.

Her sense of humor and devotion has deeply inspired my journey in reclaiming my authenticity.

Peter Levine, Ph.D.

Peter Levine is widely renowned in the psychology field for his groundbreaking research and work with trauma. He developed the Somatic Experiencing ® method, which he describes in detail in his book called “Waking the Tiger: Healing Trauma”. His work helps expand your knowledge of the Intelligence of the body, both human and animal, and was inspired by his own personal journey through a traumatic event, offering grounding and safe practices for deep healing. His shaking method has greatly assisted in my own release of trauma and has inspired the birth of the Shaking Dance within my offerings.

Linda Kohanov, Ph.D.

Linda Kohanov is a powerful teacher and healer in the field of trauma. She created Eponaquest, devoting her life to helping horses heal, and then training them to work as co- facilitators with humans. She and her horses hold transformative workshops that offer you deep heart and soul healing in a safe environment. She has written several books to help bridge the worlds of spirituality and psychology, expanding your knowledge of “sentient communication”. I feel blessed for the deep healing and reclamation of my shamanic gifts that I received during her Horse Sense for the Human Heart workshop.

And finally, to my best friend and confidant, Miwa, my beloved cat and greatest teacher, who forever teaches me about unconditional love, tenderness, strength, sensitivity, and joy— and to fully and wholeheartedly sip in the sweet essence of each and every moment.  

**In loving memory … “Dearest Miwa – while you flew through the veils of light during the second trimester birth of my website, you gifted me with the most precious heart burst of love and resilience. Thank you, dear one. You are pure delight. As we continue our sacred work together …”
