I remember the moment I chose Sparkle as my word for the year.
A word that would change my life.
I had been living in a co-housing community in Portland for a year or so and I was still trying to find my place there.
Even though we were a community, doing community things (meals, meetings, work parties, events, and meetings about meetings), I felt like there was something missing and we were not honoring or celebrating each other in a meaningful way.
I noticed that people's...
I'd love to share a story about meeting my first Guru.
I was so excited and curious!
I wondered what the energy would feel like in the room.
What would be activated simply by being in the presence of someone who is enlightened?
I was open and ready to receive and experience this new adventure as we sat waiting for him to arrive and be perched on the elevated seat in front of us.
With a big smile on his face and in his heart, he entered the room with grace, gentleness, and playfulness.
As I prepare for the retreat in a few days, it made me realize I've never really shared about our story and pictures of our sacred space with you.
We created the Peaceful Heart Retreat Sanctuary as a magical, healing space nestled in the woods outside a small town in Oregon.
My hubby and I found our way here 3 years ago via Portland after he retired from the Air Force.
This has been a dream come true for us both. And a calling for me.

Until I sit down, my mind and heart are filled with all things I want us to talk about. I want to see you in the seat on the other side of the table entering into deep conversation about all the yummy topics that we as healers long to have.
And then I sit down with the computer and have to pretend you are here with me and my mind goes blank. I know I have so much to share, so many questions to ask you, and a longing to hear what’s going on in your world.
That’s one reason I...
As a healer, I'm sure you have heard ENERGY is EVERYTHING.
That's probably why so many of us are drawn to this healing work, even if we are not fully conscious of it or fully understand it.
I have studied energy through the law of attraction, healing touch, reiki, energy medicine, yoga, meditation, essential oils, brain rewiring and through my own life experience.
Through all of this, I have come to realize that our job is to align our energy with ourselves and our...
When you said yes to the path of a healer, an entrepreneur, and a magical being did you realize how lonely it could be?
I had no clue what I signed up for!
It’s like being a unicorn in a field of horses.
And I didn’t even realize this was happening when I was in it. This feeling was masked by me being super busy meeting lots of people, going to tons of networking events, having sessions with clients, and focusing my energy on marketing, taking lots of trainings to grow my...
