Meet The Overwhelm Warrior
Feeling overwhelmed, anxious, frustrated, exhausted, lack of confidence, sleep-deprived, or burnt-out instead of energized? That was where I was in my early 40’s and included addictive behavior, declining health, and relationship problems. Then, through a series of synchronistic events, I began learning how to engage the natural healing wisdom of my body, mind, and spirit.
We have all heard that famous line, “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” To my surprise, the first teacher showed up during a family vacation in the Florida Keys while swimming with dolphins. Something magical happened when one dolphin followed me to the floating dock ladder and insisted on a kiss atop his bottleneck nose. Returning home, I found myself devouring books on Native American tradition, alternative healing, spirituality, and channeling. New ideas challenged my Roman Catholic upbringing.
My reading quest led me to Barbara Brennan’s groundbreaking book, Hands of Light, and then a workshop with her at the Whole Life Expo. She weaved through the aisles with her enormous energetic presence waving an Eagle feather and stopped by my chair speaking words of inspiration. Never had I experienced such a force of energy. The next step was the 4-year healing science training at the Barbara Brennan School of Healing held in Long Island then. Graduating at age 50 in 1994, I found out this was just the beginning.
During the Brennan training, Core Energetic Therapy was required and provided healing insight into my own being, ego structure, weaknesses, and strengths. Barbara Brennan felt, and rightly so, that if you were going to be working on clients in the healing arts, you also needed to work on yourself. However, growing up Irish Catholic, the idea of therapy would only be an option if you were going to jump off the Ben Franklin Bridge. And, even then, you might reconsider after a beer or two to regain your composure.
Next, I pursued studies in the 3-year training with Jason Shulman at A Society of Souls School. Jason is the most creative teacher I’ve ever had the privilege of studying under. Additional training in the healing arts includes Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Advanced Hypnotherapy, Reiki Mastership, and Craniosacral Therapy interspersing these educational healing training.
An opportunity to continue working on my own personal development was pursued with the 7-year Diamond Heart Psycho-Spiritual Training. Then, I found my way into Energy Medicine and the exciting 4-year Eden Energy Medicine training with the charismatic Donna Eden. Donna’s award-winning books, Energy Medicine and Energy Medicine for Women introduced an all-natural healing system that is available 24/7!
