The story so far . . .
In many ways, it is my own personal pain and suffering that has led me toward consciousness medicine – deeply profound and healing work that has been the primary focus of my life and career for more than 30 years.
Today, I use a variety of techniques for helping people access expanded states of consciousness to explore human potential beyond personality construct and connect with a larger sense of Self. Translating these experiences through the various aspects of life leads to a creative participation in the human family.
I have a deep passion for furthering this work and I regularly lecture at universities and conferences internationally.
Learning through experience
Since 1987, I have apprenticed with healers in the U.S. and Mexico. In the last 20 years, I have traveled with groups to Mexico, incorporating my counseling practice experience with my knowledge of expanded states of consciousness where I partner with Mazatec healers in Sacred Mushrooms ceremonies.
My academic studies led me to obtaining an MA in Somatic Psychology from New College of California (San Francisco, 1990) and I trained in the Hakomi Method by the Hakomi Institute of California (1991). I later became an adjunct faculty in the East West Psychology Program at CIIS from 2012 until 2018.
“May you feel validated in your quest to explore the infinite abundance of mystery and beauty that lies just beyond your ego identity and conscious mind.”
Teaching & Training
Today, I teach professionals in the healing arts a method for using this work in the context of their practices to help their clients heal, grow, and transform. I share my world view inspired by my personal experiences and explorations with entheogens and how they impact our everyday life.
