I am delighted to be offering Raw Food, Radiant Life classes at the Kotsanis Institute in Grapevine, Texas. It is a dream come true! In my many years as an occupational therapist, it has been heart-wrenching witnessing the tremendous suffering of people trying to manage with serious, frequently disabling and/or life-limiting illness. Over and over again, I have journeyed with them through illness and many times into death. It has been a labor of love, and, much as I have wanted to give my patients all that I could, I have very frequently felt that what I had to offer was paltry in comparison to the enormity of their challenges. In my desire to offer more, I have been diligently seeking new ways to help through complementary methods. That quest began with prayer, continued into studying/teaching Reiki, then massage, CranioSacral therapy, Healing Touch, Ancient Rainbow Conscious Healing, aromatherapy, guided imagery, and yoga. My own health challenges with an autoimmune disease, termed “undifferentiated connective tissue disease,” diagnosed in 2000, fueled my interest in raw, vegan nutrition, and, when I began to recover, I felt impelled to teach it. I found the answer to my deep desire for more training in a Spiritual Nutrition Mastery program developed by Gabriel Cousens, MD, at the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center. Following Dr. Cousens’ program, I have recovered – off all medication, lab values normal, jogging (slowly) 1-2 miles, and now with the energy to share it all with you. I no longer feel that what I have to offer is paltry; it is amazing! I long to share it with you. If you are dealing with an illness – autoimmune disease, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, essentially any other ailment, or if you just want to feel more alive, vibrant, and tuned in to your spiritual nature, I hope you will connect with me through my Raw Food, Radiant Life! classes (offered live and online), and/or through private massage, CranioSacral, and Infinite Oneness touch therapy sessions.
