I have long been been interested in the connection between the mind and body, and how the two influence each other towards well being. I discovered acupuncture while I was serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in The Gambia, West Africa.
My interest in the study of energy and the power of the mind attracted me to the study of Tai Chi Chuan. My practice provides me the opportunity to quiet my mind, deepen my ability to listen to energy, release resistance and experience stillness of mind. It allows me to further understand and appreciate myself more fully.
I believe our thoughts create the life experience we are having. Reconnecting to our higher self is an essential part of the healing process. Our intuition guides us, and our ability to listen and trust this guidance expedites not only our healing process, but also our ability to fully experience joy and happiness in our lives. The mind commands great influence on the flow of energy in our lives and bodies towards vitality and well being. I find cultivating a daily meditation practice is essential to recognizing our inner guidance.
In addition to these pursuits, I also enjoy all things cat, hot springs, reading, writing and traveling. I have found a happy balance in my life and infuse this energy into all of my practices.
