The Desert Sanctuary

Be Where You Are – Be Who You Are – Be at Peace

I had an amazing opportunity to talk to these two guys at the same time. Over the past couple of years, we have come to know each other a little better.

If the Covid has done anything, it ihas sobered us all up a little. This novella that Brad and Paul wrote together addresses some important issues, but I’m not going to tell you what those are. Listen to our conversation, then go get the book. It is concise and effective – I loved it!

Find Brad and Paul online.

About two years ago, I thought my whole world was ending.  I had done some internal work that was changing my life, but I also discovered something else.  I discovered my shadow.  Shadow material are things we ignore, deny, or repress that create stuck places from the trauma in our lives.  If you have ever felt reactive or said, “where did that come from,” most likely you are experiencing things you have repressed that are misbehaving.   

Focusing is the tool I most used when dealing with my shadow and learning to be authentic and present. 

Focusing is a body-oriented process of self-awareness that promotes emotional healing.  It involves recognizing how you feel and where you feel it.  I can lead you through a simple session in person or online to help you begin to shift your stuck places and help you along in your journey toward wellness.

Your body already is trying to speak to you about past trauma and pain. 

Focusing sessions are like a counseling session, but a little more focused and contemplative.  Let me lead you through this simple process to help you along in your journey to be where you are and who are. 

I know this sounds like a commercial, but I am just trying to say this helped me and I can help you get out of those stuck places.  You are the hero to your story, but you are not alone, allow me to guide you toward greater authenticity and presence through focusing.

As we continue on with our series on mystics, I talked with Christina Choy, a mother of 5 and life coach. Her story is about wanting to be a nun, then becoming acquainted with sufferring, and nature and finding the Divine closer than she thought. We talked about neuroplasticity and PTSD and truly learning to trust. This story was 10X better than I imagined. It’s on of the most interesting and understandable and fantastic stories I have ever heard! Please listen.

Dannika is a self-described ecclectic witch. She is also a writer and has an interesting story of deconstruction. It was a delight to welcome her to the Desert Sanctuary and have her do a Tarot Reading of me a few days ago. I think you will enjoy this insightful conversation.

We have a release date!

2 years ago we took a trip to Taiwan to visit my son. We wanted adventure, but we didn’t expect it to come from a scooter wreck and a simple little Tea Shop in Zhongli.

Adventures are unscripted and sometimes they are magical or even mystical. I’m so happy to share this part of my journey and my heart that absolutely changed the course of my life.

Take a deep breath, come into the present and just be yourself. The Tea Shop has something for you too!

Available September 22nd!
