Throughout my life journey, I have been a long time student, practitioner and teacher of healing traditions and the integration of mind/body/spirit. In retirement from my formal work as an advanced practice holistic nurse and mental health nurse practitioner, I want to be in service to others in some way—perhaps by sharing bits of wisdom I have gathered along the way, or at the very least, offering my heart presence and compassion for others.
My Spiritual Practice
has always been interconnected with my healing practices, and its foundation of loving kindness has been inspired by the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh, His holiness, The Dali Lama, & enriched by many other spiritual teachers, philosophers and poets. More recently, the teachings of Neem Karoli Baba and Bhakti Yoga have become my soul's guide for deepening my practice.
Bhakti Yoga and Sacred Music
I am grateful for the expression of Bhakti Yoga and the devotional, prayerful practice of singing healing mantras through my personal Sadhana. In addition to using my voice as an instrument, I play ukulele and harmonium and share my practice with others in Community Kirtan, Metta Practice, Group Meditation Practice and other events.
My service to others has always been guided by compassion.
In addition to over forty years experience of conventional and holistic nursing practice, I have had the privilege to study, practice and teach mindfulness, contemplative practices, nonviolent (compassionate) communication, mind/body integration, massage & trauma-related somatic therapies, guided imagery, energy work, music & sound healing.
