“Doing as others told me, I was Blind. Coming when others called me, I was Lost. Then I left everyone, myself as well. Then I found Everyone, Myself as well.”~ Rumi
Healing is my calling, my vocation-I’ve tried getting away from it, as in wondering if I should focus on ‘writing’–but the most, deepest satisfaction I get in the core of my being, is seeing a client’s face light up after a session.
My conscious study of metaphysics began in early 1992 when I got married and moved to Chicago and while on that first year on a sabbatical as a journalist, I began buying and borrowing everything I could on spirituality and then on healing.
We soon moved to New York and in 1995 I read one book on astrology and knew I had found my path–yes it was really as dramatic as that. I began studying astrology in New York with NCGR and an online course with the Faculty of Astrological Studies in London.I Certified in Hypnotherapy and got my first paying client.
In early 1998 we moved to England where I continued my advanced astrology studies with the Faculty of Astrological Studies and Liz Greene’s Centre of Psychological Astrology. Three years later I had the two most prestigious diplomas in the world–I believe I am one of two people to have both.
But soon I realised that although with astrology I could offer guidance, traumas, grief, negative beliefs get embedded in us and for healing to be comprehensive, some kind of body/energy work was essential.
Also, resolving painful issues by itself opens new doorways for clients and I had to help them to find ways to manifest what they want –health, wealth, relationships, career.
So I went on to doing even more studies, attending dozens of astrology and metaphysical conferences and workshops and online courses on various aspects of healing. For instance, I did a year-long course on Hermeticism, on Mediumship, residential conferences with Stuart Wilde, MBSR and so forth.
For years I have been steeped in Jungian psychology and Greek mythology, dream analysis and meditation. My Psychological Astrology course required students to undergo psychotherapy and I did that for 5-6 years.
During all of that time, I had my private practice, did workshops and was giving astrology lectures in England.
I now live mostly in London and partly in Goa with my husband. I listened to and still do, hundreds of courses on mythology, mindfulness, Buddhism and so on. I do my own dream analysis, Art as therapy, meditation, of course, tarot readings and shamanic journeying-—in other words, my work on myself goes on.
And I am coming to believe that maybe, unconditional friendliness towards all is the most powerful healing modality there is.
