What I want to offer those who come to see me revolves mainly around presence-based deep listening and allowing "what wants to happen for this person" to move through me as a conduit. I have, through exploring my sacred wound, discovered a gift of deep attunement to what is happening in the present moment, noticing what wants to happen, and then allowing and following what wants to happen to happen.
I heard Prince say once that if he didn’t write at least a song a day he’d go crazy. I’ve been doing massive self-exploration/soul work for some years now. Listening to the whispers of Beloved through the whispers of my heart and tracking glimpses of lumina. The longing that fuels me is to be a present, clear conduit for Love/life-force/Divinity to live through my unique soul expression into the world, filling my own unique niche in the overall web of life. I practice this through the offerings described above. In order for my hands to be of service there needs to be a body to serve. So I’m in it for the service.
Feedback has come that it can be hard for some to simply receive, especially on an ongoing basis like monthly massages. To allow for an avenue for reciprocity to complete the circuit, which will allow those that need it to come and get it, I have put out a tin can with a slot in the lid with the sign “Van Fund.”
Any and all proceeds from this fund will go to the dream purchase of a Sprinter 4x4 van to complete the retirement footprint. There are no expectations around this donation to the cause. It’s between you and Mystery what may or may not go into the Van Fund. If you’re called to get on my table for some body lovin, or sit on my couch for some devoted presence, then come. That’s the main thing.
Sometimes this involves my hands on my clients body in massage, listening to the tissue through my hands, directing energy and touch and pressure and flow as it wants to happen. We can work with an all over body massage for relaxation of the nervous system. We can also focus on areas of deep tension and work towards release of areas where significant holding.
Sometimes this involves me taking a seat as a presence-based coach, listening and tracking as I follow curiosity and ask questions that emerge and seem to want to be asked.
Sometimes this involves understanding where someone wants to go and providing reflections for the sake of the client forming a clearer framework and approach for where they aspire to go or how they aspire to be.
Sometimes this involves being with two beings in a relationship who ask me to sit in the seat of their relationship and serve the relationship container by holding presence and speaking loving truth and reflections into the container to be explored.
