amidst busy preparation time, PPN Astrology still percolates

I am having the time of my life here in December 2017. Not sure how, but I am getting a LOT done. Prepping for massage school upcoming in January – selling books, packing things, studying Ethics of Touch and Pathology, etc. On top of that I am still seeing about 5 – 8 clients aContinue reading “amidst busy preparation time, PPN Astrology still percolates”

marketing what I offer

A few months ago, I was speaking with a loving relative, when I told her about being a rare male in the field of Pre- and Perinatal therapy (PPN), plus offering biodynamic craniosacral therapy, Polyvagal bodywork, spiritual astrology and Tibetan Buddhist practices. I doubt there are many people on the planet who can offer whatContinue reading “marketing what I offer”

I have been so very fortunate, advanced process-oriented bodywork

I want to write a post about how lucky I am to be one of my bodywork teacher’s senior students. Her name is Janet Evergreen. She is in her 60’s now, and she just, in a recent class, made a comment about starting to slow down how often she teaches her classes. This and herContinue reading “I have been so very fortunate, advanced process-oriented bodywork”

Creating space, ease follows

It is quite amazing how little adjustments can make a huge difference. Since I returned from Canada, I have gone through my nursing school books and notes and I recycled hundreds of pages which were just sitting on my shelf gathering dust. By moving all of those nursing books further away (because I am heavilyContinue reading “Creating space, ease follows”

October update, thoughts after a rich Canadian journey

This is some of the wisdom I gleaned from my time in Canada, where I spent 2-weeks at a birth process work intensive workshop. Then I taught a 3-day workshop on Salt Spring Island on working with babies (primarily from a Craniosacral perspective, but we definitely included a lot of Polyvagal tracking of the autonomicContinue reading “October update, thoughts after a rich Canadian journey”

Yoga Retreat in beautiful Clifton Forge, VA

I wake up early, getting things together in order to head down to Clifton Forge (90 minuteContinue reading “Yoga Retreat in beautiful Clifton Forge, VA”

Beginning of an interesting two months!

As if this summer could not get any more interesting… (oh – I have not had the chance to blog about my time giving almost a dozen sessions at a yoga retreat in Clifton Forge, Virginia, will do that next). Last month, very interesting time discussing the Autonomic Nervous System, Birth Trauma and Trauma ResolutionContinue reading “Beginning of an interesting two months!”

finally feeling better after Lyme’s borreliosis

This is a post about my recovery from Lyme’s disease.  If you are a regular visitor, you may have read a previous post describing my struggle with Lyme’s disease (borrelia burgdorferi). I am now realizing that I have probably been infected with some sort of tick-borne issue for longer than I thought.  I say thisContinue reading “finally feeling better after Lyme’s borreliosis”

visiting Pittsburgh, time with Tibetan Lamas

I just recently got back from a trip to Pittsburgh, PA.  It is closer to Charlottesville than I was thinking, so I will try to head up there once a year if it is easy. On Saturday there was an empowerment by H.E. Tritsab Rinpoche (Chenrezig).  That day was a lot of driving, so IContinue reading “visiting Pittsburgh, time with Tibetan Lamas”

Clarity arising during bodywork

I am going to write about how clarity can arise during meditation.  And it can also arise when we are offering bodywork. Garchen Rinpoche is one of my heart teachers.  He is one of the few individuals on the planet who I honestly think, loves everyone and everything around him.  He is the embodiment ofContinue reading “Clarity arising during bodywork”
