Where Innocence and Joy Reside

INSPIRED By………………………….

I wanted to take this opportunity to point out a section that you may not have noticed on this site. It’s in the lower right hand corner of this page under Blog Roll. I have begun a list of links to people that have inspired me in my life, as well as partook of the services they offered. There are many more, but these are folks that have recently been brought into my life and shared their gifts with me. I’ve listed them chronologically.

Laura Bruno – Laura taught and certified me into Reiki I, II and Reiki Master/Teacher. I remember I had searched the web for a Reiki teacher, and the minute I saw her website and what she was about, I knew she was the teacher for me, and I was thrilled when she agreed. She was the perfect teacher for me, at a time when I didn’t know where I was headed; having that foundation of Reiki expanded my heart, and my life. She also offers past life readings that are transformation, which I have had, along with right on medical intuitive readings. Her life story is inspiring. She’s a wonderful writer, amazing artist, compassionate healer, raw foodie, self studied organic gardener to name a few of her passions. I so appreciate her patience and love.

Jon Rasmussen – I first met Jon at Luminata Books & Gift Store in Monterey, CA where he was giving a talk and book signing for “Dreaming Your World Into Being” a book that he had written. I had attended because I had seen the word Shaman describing him in the advertisement and I was drawn. That meeting changed my life. After his talk, I went up to him and said I want to do what you do. He quietly smiled and shook his head yes, I can see that he said. I learned about what a Shaman is and their relevance in today’s modern world and where I could learn the teachings that he had knowledge of. I found out about The Four Winds Society and the Healing Light Body School, which I began attending last year 2011. Jon is a practicing Shaman, an incredible healer. I’ve also had a few sessions with Jon. Very powerful stuff. Check out his website to see what else he has to offer.

Stephen Bruno – I first connected with Stephen through Laura. At the time they were married. He was offering Soul Purpose readings as a holiday special for the first time in a long time. I purchase a reading and thought that it was very meaningful to me. As it turns out Stephen is also a life coach. Stephen coached me through a very difficult time when my mother was ill and I was caring for her. His compassion, generosity of spirit, wisdom, & calming presence along with his no nonsense style really gave me a base to hold onto as we navigated that period with his expertise help. Stephen is a wonderful photographer, prolific writer, and also an incredible healer. Thank you for your kindness and compassion, and the bear story. You have to hear that.

Dancing Eagle Woman – She is a wonderful friend and Sister, an incredible person and human being that I am extremely blessed to have met. We met through our studies, and she is the epitome of Earth Mother to me. She walks in stillness, beauty and strength. She is a fabulous writer and photographer, she walks her truth. I love her dearly, and cannot imagine my life without her in it. No matter where we are geographically, she will always be with me in my heart. We are Soul Sisters. She has made an impact on my life that I have no clue where it will end…..maybe it won’t.

Dean Taraborelli – Dean is my teacher at the Healing Light Body School through The Four Winds. But Dean does many other things as well. Check out the link, he does phenomenal work at The Sanctuary. Dean is my Brother. Dean is me. He’s a powerful Shaman, intense, joyful, a hoot, humble and totally committed and passionate to those he teaches. Dean teaches, but he is a wonderful example of what he teaches. He always makes times for you, your questions, or just plain nonsense. Dean has inspired me to be committed and to be passionate about my work, to walk in integrity, impeccability and truth. When he talks about our work through the school, he says there are no teachers. WE are all on the same level, brothers and sisters, on our journey together. Thank you so much Dean for what you do.

I thank each and every one of you for being a part of my life as we all continue on the journey that we begun so long ago. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
