Frequently Asked Questions


What part does ceremony play in a healing session?

Ceremony allows us to step outside of normal reality and enter sacred space.  Sacred space holds all states of being with love and acceptance and can make it possible for us to see and feel more clearly than we might normally.  Ceremony allows us to honor the wisdom of our current bodies and psyches and to hold our experiences with reverence and compassion.   Participating in ceremony can help us remember that we are an expression of the divine, even in times of imbalance or difficulty.


What is craniosacral work?

Craniosacral technique is a subtle form of hands-on body work.  Light touch and long holds are used to sense, aid and gently direct the flow of cerebrospinal fluid, which is the fluid that bathes the spinal cord and brain.  Touch might be applied to the skull, face, spine or pelvis to allow this fluid to find it's natural rhythm and flow.


What is work with energetic fields?

All things, animate and inanimate, are made up of energy.  Within our human bodies each organ, type of tissue, fluid environment and system has a unique vibration or energetic signature.  In addition, subtle energetic fields extend off our bodies and hover both close to our form and extend great distances away. These fields inform our physical, mental and emotional health and lay the template for every part of our lives including our relationships, our careers and our sense of purpose. Energy work connects to the distinct vibrational fields both inside and outside the body to aid in the release of blocks to the normal vibrational flow and can also assist in balancing places of distortion, depletion, and excess.  Honoring the wisdom of the energies present and, when appropriate, allowing the body and surrounding fields to find their essential state can provide the needed foundation for healing to occur.  Energy work may be done with hands-on touch or can be done hands-off when working with the fields that extend off the body.


What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation.  It releases tension by directing soothing energy from the practitioner's hands to the client's body.  Increased states of relaxation enhance the body's natural healing mechanism and support whole-being health.  Reiki can by done with hands-on touch and may also be done with hands hovering away from the body.


What is a shamanic journey?

A shamanic journey is a type of meditative state designed to help gather information about a particular question or situation.  The meditative state is achieved through visualization, relaxation and listening to repetitive percussion.  The percussion allows the brain to drop into the state necessary for information to come, not from the noisy mind chatter, but from the deeper wisdom of our own souls and from our helping spirits and guides.  Journeying lets us experience direct revelation (knowing) and supports us in understanding that we have access to the answers to our own questions.


What is divination?

Divination is any technique used to learn information or answer questions that relies more on intuition and connection to spirit than on the linear thinking mind.  Tarot, pendulums, and meditation are examples of divination techniques.


How can plants help?

Plants are living beings that have no ego.  They allow for the transmission of energy that is pure and unaffected by human complications.  They provide a clear channel for what is truly present and can aid in cleansing noisy energetic places and in allowing the flow of the larger, cosmic energy that connects all things.


What are essential oils?

Essential oils are highly concentrated extracts collected from plants and trees. The oil of each type of plant or tree has a characteristic smell and specific medicinal benefits.  They can be used in aromatherapy or topically to address numerous different physical, mental and emotional symptoms.


What are flower essences?

Flower essences are liquid extracts of the subtle energetic properties of different type of flowers.  Each type of flower has it's own life force which, when taken internally or applied topically, can be used to address specific issues of emotional well being, soul connection and mind-body health.  They work on a vibrational, not chemical, level.  The specific energy signature of each flower resonate with particular qualities of the human soul to achieve mental, emotional and physical well-being.


What is mudra practice?

Mudras, an ancient art found across cultures, are sacred shapes made with the hands that cultivate particular energetic states.  Mudra practice can be used to root awareness in particular intentions and actively manifest certain states of being.  They are powerful reminders that we hold our destiny in our own hands.
