ARTICLES AND INSIGHTS

Mojo of the Moment

A dear friend and colleague sent me a text this week articulating his awareness that an insight he had received in meditation freed him from some old patterns and behaviors.  He felt well and truly finished with the way he used to be. Now how cool is that?  If you’re anything like me, you’re thinking, … Read more

Diving into your Dogma

What do you believe?  Do you believe what you believe?  Honey, I’ve got to tell you, we all think some crazy stuff, and when we believe the crazy stuff we think, we set worlds of energy into motion. Dogma can be stultifying, sticky.  You can end up thinking through a lens that is clouded with … Read more

Energetic Promiscuity

You’re salivating aren’t you?  Promiscuity?  This is going to be one juicy post!  What in the world could CK be alluding to with such a provocative title? Well, you’re definitely right, the title is titillating, and if it evokes the concept of doing you know what with lots of you know who’s, you’re on the … Read more

Clearing the Cache

Have you ever noticed that an issue you thought was behind you, processed, finished, kaputted in your consciousness can sneak back into position and rear its head yet again?  Aside from being thoroughly annoying, issue redux can also make you feel like you’re back at square one – or that you’ll NEVER completely resolve or … Read more

Keeping it Clean in your practice with Energy Hygiene

Energy hygiene is an essential practice for healers and practitioners to manage energetic countertransference and to avoid burnout. Beyond ‘highest possible good’, which is a concept, not a measurable frequency, energy hygiene keeps the practitioner’s neutrality in place, and minimizes enmeshment.

A Shout-out for Stillness

Last week I took myself up north on the Coast of Maine for my annual pilgrimage and retreat.  The area is spectacularly beautiful – raw, primal – wildlife abounds.  The sparse population of year-round residents are salty and real and connected to the Earth in ways that you don’t see in suburbs, or even my … Read more

Fairy Tale Relationships

Relationships are tricky.  They can really trigger our stuff.  Why is that?  I mean, if we love someone, we should find him or her to be compatible, yes?  As a couple, you blend, they zig when we zig and they zag when we zag. Yeah, the stuff of fairy tales. But come to think of … Read more

Until You Go In, You Can’t Find Out

You can’t see an energy healer in the attempt to avoid meeting your issues and owning your stuff.  We’re not therapy substitutes.  The title of this post is the invitation to people to go in and do the work so you can find out.  Literally and figuratively. Any energy healer worth his or her salt … Read more

Nadi, Nadi, Nadi

No, I’m not scolding you.  And I’m not calling you naughty.  I am calling out to your nadis, because yes, even you have them. When teaching participants about hands-on healing during EHI’s Facilitating Healing curriculum, we cover a skill called Untangling Nadis.  The nadis are akin to the meridians – the channels that funnel energy … Read more

Rethinking Subtle Energy

I just attended a conference in Coronado, California hosted by the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology.  I had the privilege of speaking to a delightful group of energy psychologists on Sunday morning with my colleague, EHI Ambassador and friend Rick Leskowitz.  [Energy Psychologists incorporate EFT, EMDR, TAT and other energy-based forms for supporting patients in … Read more

Anger: Redressed not Repressed

Recently I’ve had several clients working on the significant task of individuating from the family system – we’re never too old to leave the family system behind! One of the ways that I experience people remaining stuck in the systemic family dysfunction is that it can be hard for them to give up any anger … Read more

Send Your Shame up in Flames

Well, by now you all realize that I devoted two entire posts to guilt (which you can find here and here).  I have no problems with that, and I’m not justifying a thing.  All I can say is that shame deserves equal time. So what’s the thing with shame?  Why are shame-fests so common?  What’s … Read more
