What is energy medicine?
We have a physical body that we can sense with our 5 senses, but within and around the physical body are energetic pathways that connect to every cell, organ and tissue that we have.
You may be familiar with some of them in the form of meridians in Chinese medicine. And that is only one way that energy moves in our bodies. There are countless others patterns and ways that energy flows as well as ways that we receive and give energy to the world around us.
Thoughts and Emotions (energy-in-motion) are energy and can either support health and well-being or create imbalance which eventually leads to physical symptoms, brain imbalances, mental symptoms and/or emotional instability .
Unearthing our belief systems, our thought patterns and our unprocessed emotions are all a part of energy medicine. Learning about and connecting to your own energy fields gives you access to the core make up of your body, mind and spirit.
In knowing your own core, which are the building blocks of all life — animal, plant or otherwise– you can influence your energy body and therefore be a co-creator in your life instead of a passive participant or even a victim.
In summary: Energy medicine is a co-creative process between practitioner and client supported by the high frequencies of universal energy that many call unconditional love or a higher power.
That sounds intriguing, but what would an energy medicine session be like?
Energy medicine sessions are different for each person so it can be a little hard to describe exactly what will happen.
I meet each person where they are so there is no need to be concerned about what you know or don’t know about your own energy body, thoughts patterns or emotions. Often there is a dialogue throughout the session to connect to patterns and emotions that are blocking or disturbing energy flow.
Also, each session begins with discussing your intention; what you want to achieve in the session or in your life.
Energy medicine can include light hands on touch, hands off work, sound healing and bodywork. Above all, it requires a willingness to look at all the different parts of yourself and to be honest with yourself throughout the process. The rewards this kind of work can yield are incredible.
What happens in a sound healing session?
Sound healing sessions and energy medicine sessions are intertwined. Energy medicine and sound healing are both based on the use of vibration to create balance and support in the energy systems of your body, mind and spirit.
The session starts with your stated intention, which helps direct the use of the instruments or the sound, and we may continue the dialog throughout to help keep you connected to your thoughts, emotions and physical body.
Inner knowing and empowerment are the primary goals of the session, along with providing you with the skills to use sound healing/vibration at home to help you stay in balance.
The instruments may be played over you or placed on you in order to feel the vibration more directly. Most clients love this work as the sounds and vibrations are such a direct way to connect and be supported by a higher healing vibration.
How much does a session cost? Do you take credit cards?
90 minute sessions are $115.00. Full and half day retreats are priced according to what you choose to include in your day. At this time credit cards can be used to buy gift certificates online, but only cash and checks are taken in the office.
What is a yurt?
Well, besides being an incredible place for you to come and heal, and for me to work, a yurt or ger, as they are called in Mongolia, are round living structures with a unique design that allow it to create an open space with no center support.
A kind of cross between a gazebo and tent they are used by nomadic tribes in Mongolia as a shelter that is easy to pack up and travel with. There, they are placed directly on the ground with rugs used for warmth. The flexible wooden sides and roof are covered by animal skins and the opening at the top allows smoke from the fire to leave the space.
Here, we have modernized yurts with canvas coverings and plexiglass tops on the center opening to keep out the elements. I use the fire from a pellet stove with its own flue to warm mine in the winter.
Round structures and spaces are used throughout the world as sacred places, as in the Hogans of the Native Americans in the southwest and stone circles found extensively in the British Isles.
Round spaces are organic and amplify the energies created within them. They are symbolic of the circle of life and there is no doubt that all who come into the yurt comment on how it wonderful it feels to be in this unique space.
