No matter what type of illness besets you, no matter how long you've suffered, I believe healing is always possible! Unfortunately, healing is never as convenient as a pill taken twice a day or a set of routines or menus performed or eaten over a period of time. Healing can be messy, but it can also be absolutely wondrous. It is the most intimate journey you'll ever make, for on this journey, you will revisit the many places that you've been injured, and with simple tools, learn how to mend the broken pieces of yourself together again. Like the Japanese art of Kintsugi, your broken vessel will be repaired and made whole again.
It takes courage and commitment to go on such a journey, and yet, it is the road less-traveled that makes all the difference. Lean on whatever external support you need, but when you are ready to let go of the crutch, I am ready to be your guide into the sacred unknown.
At the heart of Naturopathic Medicine is the concept Vis Madicatrix Naturae, or the healing power of Nature. Yet, "Nature" isn't Nature with just the herbs, trees, animals, mountains and rivers; instead, "Nature" also refers to your inner nature, your truth, your authenticity. Health is the natural state; illness is simply a deviation from our natural path.
As a Naturopathic Physician, Physical Therapist, Acupuncturist and Reiki Master, and having healed myself completely from lupus + dialysis (see Markings of a Butterfly, available online @ Lulu Bookstore), I am in a unique position to help you. I've designed this Meetup Group for those who want to understand the root cause(s) of their chronic illness(es) and take back their health through natural medicines. I will be teaching classes to lay the foundation of understanding so that you are empowered to chart your own healing journeys. There will be weekly forums for Q&A as well as in-class discussions so that paradigm shifts can occur.
One of my favorite quotations comes from Jonathan Livingston Seagull: "Poor Fletch. Don’t believe what your eyes are telling you. All they show you is limitation. Look with your understanding, find out what you already know, and you’ll see the way to fly." These classes will give you new eyes to look with understanding so that you, too, may fly!
This Meetup Group is limited to 50 clients and has the following benefits:
