My New Friend

This actually happened today. I went for a short walk this afternoon. About halfway through, near the playground my daughter likes to play at, I was hailed by a youngish man. He was a stranger to me, and dressed raggedly, carrying a large, dirty backpack. I’d seen him before, shouting …

Interview: UFO Chronicles Podcast

UFO Chronicles Podcast
UFO Chronicles Podcast

File this one under “better late than never.”  Back in October, I was invited to share about my near death experience and recovery on the UFO Chronicles Podcast by the ever pleasant and professional Nik Hunter.  I’d never done an interview quite like this before (although this was honestly more of a monologue), and I wasn’t sure how it would feel.  Turns out that the story just flowed out, and while there are a few aspects of the experience I wish I’d explored more, I’m fairly happy with the result.  It’s my honest truth, and not one I’ve shared publicly as a whole (especially the addiction bits).  It feels a bit like relaxing a muscle I hadn’t realized was tight, and perhaps I’ll do more in the future.  Anyway, I’ll let the podcast speak for itself.  As they say in recovery circles, I hope someone hears something that they need to hear.

Little Brother’s Costa Rican Journey

Happiest of holiday seasons, Big Sisters and Brothers! I’ve been blessed to spend the majority of mine surrounded by family on the beaches and in the jungles of Costa Rica (which may find itself with a few new residents before long). The people here shine both in physical and emotional …

What You Seek is Seeking You

The energy lately seems to be slightly cloudy with a chance of weird. Lots of people have been complaining about difficulty focusing, emotional rollercoaster rides, intense dreams, and sleep alternating between insomnia and torpor. I personally have been finding it difficult to read more than a few pages at a …

Intuitive Pursuit

Big Money, No Whammies!
Big Money, No Whammies!

Here’s a small tip for exercising your intuition muscle. Find a multiple choice trivia quiz on a subject you have no knowledge or interest in. Read questions thoroughly, as if you were actually taking the quiz. Now read each of the multiple choice answers, paying attention to where you feel them in your body.

Do your best NOT to engage your brain or think about which one you Think is correct. Choose the one that FEELS “right,” and see how often it’s also the correct answer. As you do this a few times, you can begin to isolate how the “right” answers feel (it feels round in my forehead and belly for me — like it “fits” perfectly). This is the feeling of Knowing.

You’re welcome!

Our First Graduating Class!

Congratulations to the first ever graduating class of Kali-Ki Reiki and Wisdom School, San Francisco!  I couldn’t have asked for a better group of open hearted souls to explore consciousness with. We learned the history and symbols of Reiki, practical approaches to all 16 Kali-Ki chakras and, you know, transcended …

New Studio Location!

The ink should be dry by now, so I feel safe in sharing that I’ll officially be giving treatments out of a new studio in San Francisco! I’ll be sharing space with the wonderful folks at A Return to Health: South Shaolin Qi Gong & Chinese Medicine in the absolutely gorgeous Flood Building at 870 Market Street, Suite 309 — just spitting distance from Powell St. BART! I’m through the roof about this!

Angela and Sharon are universe class healers (I’m hoping to trick Angela into teaching me more Qi Gong), the location is absolutely perfect and it finally feels like the San Francisco annex of Kali-Ki Wisdom School has a home that isn’t also my living room.

I’ll begin taking sessions there on the 15th of this month!
