I’ve been studying healing since I was a child.
From the moment that I first learned that people hurt I have been watching, practicing, feeling, searching.
I saw that people sometimes hurt themselves and that people sometimes hurt others, even those they love. I wanted to help, to do ‘something’ to change how we lived with pain. Including the pain we often cause others without even meaning to.
I could see it was blocking happiness and self expression. But I was so little. I looked everywhere. I asked questions. I challenged authority figures in my life and in the system. I was hurt and I hurt others. I knew, we would all have broken hearts and parts. Yet, I also knew there was more we could be doing.
I found myself frustrated as I entered my teens and while I could see there was good medicine all around I wasn’t seeing what I FELT IN MY BONES AND HEART WAS POSSIBLE….

Here I am, wide eyed and ready for the world at age 7
Starting this Wednesday, August 15th:
Join me for INSIGHT, Free Global Intentional Creativity Seminars – watch the video I recorded in my new studio (more on that in an other letter)
We don’t know where we are from
We don’t know where we are going
We may not even really know who we are
We are made of stardust, holy soil and a kiss
We are woven from cypress, flower, cloud and sea
We are made from love, for love
We are a cosmic rose
held in the arms of the great mystery
The Milky Way is a divine face and place
Our pillar of cloud and star to light the wilderness path
Our earth coordinates travel through space with place
We look up, we look in, we stand up,
we stand in stars and soil, holy ground
We move forward in the beauty in which we are made
Made for this earth, from this earth, for this time
This is our time, whoever we know ourselves to be
We are here now, let us gather ourselves
Sharing stories and medicine across wisdom’s table
We have all that we need now
We are the revolution that is called beautiful
Years from now when our children look back
and we have returned home to milky ways
They will say
We are the revolution that is called beautiful
Then and now,
will lift our arms in Praise
Let us not wait to say thank you, let’s say it now
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
In this way of being, healing is opened
And a man who had been lame from his mother’s womb was being carried along, whom they used to set down every day at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, in order to ask alms of those who were entering the temple.
The above scripture is regarding the man who begins to walk…
Thinking of you as I send this letter. Knowing that like myself, you are faced with choices all the time about where healing is found. For you, for your family – for those around you.
These many years and experiences later, I still believe healing is possible. Even though I didn’t discover the level of complete healing I was searching for, I never stopped looking. Nor do I imagine that I will.
I also never stop trying for a FULL recovery in any situation I am working with. Even this morning I prayed in my FULL FAITH that a person would turn a corner on their health path. For the past 25 years I have curated spaces, communities and gatherings that are designed to create an EXPERIENCE where if healing was possible, it would happen, if it could happen.
Through working with tens of thousands of women in many different arena’s, my focus changed from a total focus on healing to being at cause for transformation at the level of story. I could see that if their story wasn’t going to change, likely their body wasn’t going to change either. It could, and it did, but not as often as it COULD if their story that they were living with changed. I knew that their story informed their body and their field, and their particles down to the teensy tiniest were being informed. I also knew it couldn’t just be story as it exists in the mind. There had to be more.
I was witness to healings and worked with healers myself. I also began to see transformational healing take place within the experiences myself and my community were curating. And it was different than other things I had seen. So I doubled down in searching, EXACTLY and PRECISELY WHAT WAS causing the shift during working with us in the realm of self expression.
I found myself still searching for the catalytic super sauce that would increase our results as well as our capacities and even, the number of people we could serve.
Through watching, practicing with students, training guides, and working with my teachers, Caron and Sue, and my team, Jena and Mary, and the quantum understanding of my husband Jonathan, the pieces started coming together. I began to give language to the mysteries I was watching. Watching my students, I learned how to teach and how to bring happenings into FORM.
My personal new studio – more on this story soon!
We also still have our Sonoma location for classes.
What we have discovered about how transformation works with the field and the body is revolutionary. For me, it is everything. It might not heal every wound, but it went far enough into true change for the people we worked with that I knew I was getting closer. People tell me, that this work, and me and my team saved their life, over and over. I don’t tell that part often for fear of (who knows), just fear. Yet if I am honest with you, and me, that change I sought is happening. Different than I could ever imagine. It is humbling, and so beautiful that tears fall as I write these words.
When I spoke with my mom Caron about the path of healing I have been on for others and how I feel I haven’t quite done what I thought I would by this time she said, ‘Yes, you have’. And so today I am letting myself feel that feeling of having accomplished something I set out to do long long ago. Instantly it made me want to sit down and tell you what I have found.
Over time and because my passion was great I barely felt I had any choice but to say yes, I was able to translate that into an Intentional Creativity Teacher Training called Color of Woman in 2010. Where we started was so transformational that 90% of the first year graduates 8 years later are still teaching creativity as healing in some form. These are doctors, nurses, healers, therapists, professors – helping professionals who KNEW it was time for a change. To bring living color to their work…
Recently we had dinner with two world renowned best selling teacher and trainers. Some of the best and brightest cutting edge practitioners in the industry of medicine, and there came a point where one of them asked me to say what I was seeing and why it was working and how imagination was involved when form was expressed. This level of change can’t just come through willing it or from the mind, I told them. The table paused. Eyes got big. Heads nodded. And honestly I could see they hadn’t thought of that. Then we moved on. But I knew, just as I know now.
Women at work
We now know how creativity works with the brain, body and field to cause remission, healing, increased awareness, calm flow state, states of no pain IS on the frontier. Further, could be USED WITH ANY MODALITY to increase the healing capacity of the human being through engaging with their natural self expression. We have massage therapists, EFT specialists, school nurses, scientists, lawyers, tech geniuses and practitioners from all fields ADDING Intentional Creativity to their offerings and GETTING NEW INFORMATION THEY HAD NOT BEEN SEEING BEFORE!!! It is a miracle, sometimes, but is it new and working to bring about change and insight. Profound solid scientific YES. Was the capacity for consciousness expanded? SOLID YES. Were people waking up through what we were teaching them? YES.
Here are a few upcoming experiences with me, focused healing energy and Intentional Creativity!
My friend Desda Zuckerman and I are teaching a class this Saturday about Intentional Creativity and your Sacred Anatomy – applying teachings using both the right and left brain and how it interacts in connection with the larger structure of your sacred subtle anatomy to embody awareness of your Greater Mind. Learn more here to join us online and in our Sonoma studio!
Now, with applications opening for our Color of Woman 2019 Intentional Creativity Teacher Training on Wednesday, August 15th, I am writing you to come learn what I and 200+ Intentional Creativity graduates have discovered. You can learn more about all of our work with Color of Woman at www.colorofwoman.com – my oldest URL of all time! This was my first book and my first business name! OR you can join us to start practicing right away in INSIGHT.
If you are interested in Intentional Creativity and what we are up to in the Color of Woman What I will share with you is FREE. You can put it into place immediately. You don’t have to attend the training to experience it. Join me for The INSIGHT Experience, a series of enlivening seminars for those interested in learning about Intentional Creativity + the INSIGHT link between imagination and consciousness.
Experience it for yourself, because it can take some practice to feel the full benefits, but you will leave with greater access to your capacity to listen to yourself and receive insight – a new kind of seeing. RSVP for free to Learn More. Seminars are delivered via video to watch on your schedule. If you’ve been considering Color of Woman, I encourage you to join me as I’ll be sharing about the Training and how you can use it to curate transformation in yourself and others.
It is my honor and life’s work to witness my students, teach them and learn from them. I want to thank you deeply for being connected with me along the Red Thread and look forward to continuing our connection in whatever form that takes over time.
Weaving with love,
and with a full heart of gratitude,
