My curiosity about wellness and the human body led me to study exercise physiology at the University of Victoria, where I received a masters degree in 1991. I worked with a spectrum of clients, ranging from chronic pain clients to elite national-level athletes. As an exercise therapist working with injury rehabilitation clients who were not healing, I noticed the effect of mind, emotions, and spirit on a patient’s recovery. This fueled a desire to learn about non-physical components of healing, such as psychology, and alternative healing modalities.
I learned more about energy therapy, energetic psychology, spirituality and metaphysics through Chinese Energetic Medicine (Medical Qigong), supplemented with training in shamanic practices such as soul retrieval, channeling, past life journeying, and mediumship. In 2014, I started using light body meditation journeys to explore expanded states of consciousness and the worlds of light. After years of training and exploration, I have woven all of these practices together to create a unique, wholistic lens through which to observe human health, wellness, and healing.
To do this, I became the first participant in my own program. I found that by bringing greater consciousness to my body, emotions, unconscious thoughts, patterns and beliefs, using a combination of these varied approaches, I overcame ‘stuckness’ at all levels to find my authentic self. I learned there is a full spectrum of energy and frequencies that can be accessed for healing and creating greater consciousness, and higher, consciousness. I gained clarity about my purpose, and am empowered to make choices to create a life filled with more joy, peace, confidence, flowing emotions and higher thoughts than in the past.
I use this integrative approach in my work with clients and students to assist them explore their potentials and possibilities for healing, transformation, and spiritual growth, and to remove many blockages that may stand in their way – to help bring consciousness to what was previously unconscious. My purpose is to assist others to become more conscious, so they can live by their highest choices and not by default, to find and be their most authentic expression.
Blockages to good energy flow can be physical, emotional, mental and/or spiritual in nature and can impede the body’s energy flow and disrupt its healing abilities. This can lead to pain, dis-ease, and/or decreased vitality that reduces one’s ability to flow with, and enjoy, life. At Integrative Energy Arts, we assist you to find, explore, and transform these blockages so you can experience greater health, joy, energy, balance, and flow in your life.
We know that our bodies are an amazing resource that can be tapped to explore blockages to find greater consciousness and awareness that will improve our ability to flow with life, live life more fully, and allow us to be an authentic expression of the purpose for which we were created. Integrative Energy Arts body-focused services include Qigong classes and training, and individual and group treatment sessions.
Over time, the goals and interests of Integrative Energy Arts have expanded to include the exploration of higher consciousness. Our mission has evolved to that of assisting people to become more conscious, at all levels – to explore and experience a whole spectrum of frequencies of consciousness, ranging from physical matter in the body to the highest frequencies of light. Awakening Your Light Body meditation classes, and a new program called “Consciously Creating Consciousness: Finding Our Authentic Expression”, can assist in this process of spiritual evolution.
