"Your life is a grand adventure. Take risks. Explore the unknown. Journey forth into the great, wide open without preplanned outcomes."*

On your soul journey you explore life themes through your everyday experiences and choices. These adventures allow you to discover yourself, find meaning, and connect to life's mystery and magic.

Your choices may lead to physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual adventures.

World travelers, masters in physical adventure, know their preparation plus their savvy in the moment shall allow them to move through whatever presents itself. A mental explorer may return to school after a long hiatus, trusting they shall find their way. An emotional adventure might involve behaving authentically in an important relationship. Perhaps to support your spirit you go on a retreat or join a group who prays, meditates, or chants. Adventures may involve exploring new territory, tracing or expanding boundaries, or revealing your authentic self.

Adventure means you release agendas while you cultivate curiosity and invite surprise.

When you invite adventure you jump into the flow of life as you relinquish control and fear. In releasing control, you can open your hands and heart to relax and receive support as needed. Agendas, sourced by fear, reflect a constrained life itinerary. In contrast, permission to explore can lead to surprise and delight.

Adventurousness arises from internal assurance.

Jin Shin Jyutsu® acupressure self-helps for security include First Depth (Safety Energy Locks 1 through 4, Organ Function Energies Stomach and Spleen, and the thumb), plus SEL 8 (magic in life), 21 (mental freedom), 23 (relinquish false security), and Organ Function Energy Heart (quell insecurity).

When do you feel a sense of adventure? How do you leap into the unknown?

Speaking of adventures, this weekend I head to Portland, Oregon for a week-long training in embodied energy work. I'll meet you back here in two weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does a typical Energy Quartet session go?

We open with a 45 minute or so Akashic Records consultation. The revealed themes, patterns, and disharmonies drive the table work in conjunction with your "pulses," body reading, and my intuitive insights. A follow-up e-mail documents what occurs during the energy work and includes customized self-helps.

What should I wear to receive table work?

In this work, you remain fully clothed. Just wear whatever will feel comfortable while lying on my massage table. If it's a remote session, I'll ask you to rest while I send energy.

How do I prepare for a session?

Please consider the personal or interpersonal disharmony that led you to me and how you would like it to shift. During the session, we'll explore and address the origins and drivers of each "project."

Are the Akashic Records predictive?

No, the records aren’t a good resource for predictions. If there’s something you hope will happen, the records might reveal a series of necessary steps to reach your desired outcome but not the timing. For predictions, please consult a good psychic or astrologer!

Why can't children receive Akashic Records consultations?

Minors are under their parents' legal and energetic jurisdiction until they are 18, regardless of their maturity level.


The greatest benefit occurs when I incorporate all four modalities I practice. The option without the Akashic Records is appropriate for children under 18 who cannot receive readings. A stand-alone reading can bring insight and healing but does not involve my direct interaction with your energetic and physical bodies like my other practices.

Do you record Akashic Records consultations?

No, but you are welcome to record sessions yourself.

Why do self-helps?

Self-helps, both from Jin Shin Jyutsu and the Embodied Energy System, support your continued harmony, accelerate your evolution, and empower you. Plus they make you sparkly!
