Aligning With Our New Center

14 Jun, 2021
I have just recently returned to my practice after months of my own journey of recovery. As I began seeing clients I noticed that in most of the people I was treating there was a common signature in their fields. What I noticed was a sense of “off centeredness” or misalignment with the central core of their field. Usually when something like this shows up consistently the first thing I do is check to see if I am projecting the pattern.

Retuning the Field

29 Mar, 2021
We have all been impacted by the Covid-19 Pandemic. Some of us have experienced personal physical manifestations of the virus or have cared for loved ones who have. Some of us have lost loved ones, friends and neighbors or have known people who have. We have been isolated in our homes and the flow of our lives has been disrupted.

Lunar New Year 2021 - Year of the Metal Ox, February 12, 2021

9 Feb, 2021
February 12, 2021 is the beginning of Lunar New Year, this year we celebrate the Metal Ox, the second sign in the Zodiacal wheel. According to myth, the Jade Emperor established the order of the zodiacal animals based on when they arrived at his party. The Ox was in the lead, but kind-hearted in nature, gave Rat a ride on his back. As soon as they arrived at the party, Rat jumped down becoming the first animal in the zodiac, and Ox was second.

This article appeared on March 1, 2017 and remains deeply relevant today. This is the first newsletter published since the death of our dear friend and long-time colleague Paul Ponton from Covid related Pneumonia. As Paul and Jude have contributed to every newsletter since its inception, it didn’t feel right to publish without a contribution from them. As Jude is still recovering from Covid and navigating the loss of Paul with her permission we reached into the archives to choose an article that seemed so relevant to these times.

The Time of the Zhi—Connecting to Our Destiny

19 Nov, 2020
We are in the time of transition from the dwindling energy of Autumn to Winter, the cycle of the water element when our energy draws inward. The spirit of the Kidney and the water element is the Zhi that reside in the most hidden parts of our body. The Zhi spirits connect us to the collective unconscious, where we are aware of our infinite nature. The Zhi is the yin fire, the embers that ignite the spark of connection to our destiny. The Zhi dwell in the dimension known in Vedic philosophy as Karma, the unconscious forces and collective energies that influence the course of our lives.

Protocol: Helping the Lungs During Fires

30 Aug, 2020
How are the fires out your way? So much trauma, new and revisited, as we now struggle to breathe the air with hundreds and hundreds of fires burning at once:

Late Summer, The Fifth Season

30 Aug, 2020
Summer, the height of yang, activates and amplifies the energy of intention, and vision that were set in Spring. In Late Summer, this energy consolidated by the Earth element is realized as manifestation in a tangible form. Intention and vision are waveforms in the higher vibrational realms that must be acted upon before they can take shape in particle/physical reality.

The Heart as the Unifier

25 Jun, 2020
As we approach summer, the season of the Heart (Fire Element), there is so much going on in the world around us that could trouble our hearts. In the view of Classical Chinese Medicine the primary function of the Heart is to open our awareness of unity and to help us to experience connection and community. The Heart is the “unifier” and is said to define our humanity. It is the home of our spirit. Especially in times of discord it is our hearts that yearn for unity. The Summer Solstice is the point where yin and yang come together and it is said that this is where the Heart sits, at this point of the unity of the yin and yang energies. The analytical mind divides, it perceives from the perspective of good or bad/beneficial or detrimental. The Heart recognizes the unity of everything, that there is purpose in everything and that all experiences are vehicles for transformation. The Heart is said to be the “voice of sacredness” that helps us to connect with our true humanity.

Vibrational Acupuncture: Integrating Tuning Forks With Needles

25 Jun, 2020
“Together, (these) two modalities balance Yin and Yang, both calm and stimulate, and simultaneously ground and lift up the Qi. This permits the integration of Water/Fire polarities within the body, allowing for a flow of Shen spirit in physical form and contributing to the manifestation one’s particular destiny.”[1]

PANDEMIC Online Confessions

14 May, 2020
I am an Aquarian, so I embrace new and progressive, but let’s face it, Aquarius for all its eccentric glory, is a fixed sign and set in its ways. Not to mention my grand fixed cross makes sudden change a bit of a challenge. So when it became obvious (transiting Uranus is conjunct a corner of that cross now) that my Acutonics classes and practice could not be performed in person with real live bodies in the COVID 19 Pandemic, I grudgingly accepted my new path to online classes, Zoom live distance sessions……and I created a Youtube channel.
