Episode 22, Dr. Jean Houston “Making Dreams Come True”

Dr. Jean Houston

Dr. Jean Houston

“Dreams do Come True”  I was the dinner guest of keynote speaker Dr Jean Houston at the Connecting Lives ~ Opening Hearts conference in Calgary. I did the 11 month course “the Hero’s Journey ” with Jean, who is friends with Joseph Campbell. As John Lennon’s song “Imagine” came on we bowed our heads to listen. She whispered to me that he wrote the song “Mind Games” for she and her husband after the work they were doing with the brain. I am transformed, loved and seen by her with this experience.

Episode 21: Stories From The Treatment Room

HealingHands“Stories from the Treatment Room” are true stories which focus on combining my skills as a manual therapist and the gift of medium-ship.  My great grandmother from the Ukraine lived in the mountains.  People would line up outside her door as she used her gift to help those heal their grief receiving the gift of peace.  People experience the Spiritual Stretch of perception that all is energy.  I have come to understand that tears shed in a session is the awakening of truth within ones heart.  It is an aspect of the healing. My Intention is to Inspire Health in the Human Spirit.
