Energy Healing is such a subtle and profound experience that only highly spiritual healers can make use of it successfully. Marie has this ineffable quality that allows her to be powerful and gentle simultaneously. In her hands, it becomes a soothing, invigorating healing practice that everyone should indulge in and benefit from." Alice C., Menlo Park
When my fiancee and I were in search of a pre-marital counselor, we didn't know what to expect. We just knew it was best practice to do pre-marital counseling, so we did. The minute we met with Kim for an intro session, she was a kind, comforting presence that was able to get both me and my partner to easily share - something rare for my partner. Throughout our time working with Kim, she helped us hone in on issues within our relationship while discovering things about ourselves - individually - that we didn't realize were negatively affecting us. What we loved most about Kim was that she didn't just talk us through every problem we were working to solve but provided us with tools that we will be able to use for years to come. In our sessions, Kim provided great counseling with a sincere intention to set our marriage off on a strong foundation of self-awareness and clear communication to build our relationship upon. Thank you, Kim, for all of your guidance and support!
Originally, I went to see Sean for a constant migraine. Along the way, Sean has done so much more! We've addressed family issues, cords, entities, electro-magnetic interference and releasing tension. Sean is a caring person who sincerely wants to get to the root of a problem. Sean has used Body Talk, hypnotism, guided meditations, sound healings, sacred chants and guidance from the spiritual realm. Plus, it is great to have someone to talk with about spiritual subjects!! Sessions with Sean have been an interesting adventure and I feel very fortunate to have met Sean and benefitted from his vast knowledge.
Dana lights up the room with her beaming energy. Her teachings are powerful, spiritual, and enriching. Words cannot even begin to express how much I appreciate her gentle voice and creative expression. Her teachings have transformed my life - through working with this brilliant leader, I came to realize that, I too, could be a teacher. With Dana's encouragement and inspiration, I finally found my deepest passions through yoga.
When I started working with Shannon I was struggling with deep unhappiness and uncertainty about my life, as well as my relationships with the people in my life. I was skeptical of talking to anyone because of several prior bad experiences with counselors and psychiatrists. But I called anyway out of desperation and I'm very glad in retrospect that I did. Shannon helped me consciously identify things that are important to me and things I wanted to change. With Shannon I learned to proactively become aware of and eliminate negative, harmful, or just plain not useful patterns of thinking and instead treat myself using positive reinforcement. These changes seems small and simple but their impact is deep. I also benefited from her wise perspective on managing relationships with others. By using what I've worked on with Shannon, I feel more clear, capable, reflective, and self-aware. This in turn has helped me focus, enjoy my work, and improve how I view my relationships with my family and coworkers. I'm all around much happier and proud of myself. In working with Shannon, I was impressed by her kindness, her breadth of understanding, her proactive approach, and her focus on ensuring her clients improve in a quantifiable, verifiable way. I would and do recommend her to anyone looking for guidance through rough times, especially if you're looking for quick and concrete practices to implement to improve your life immediately.
Adam is a wonderful teacher: he not only has the knowledge, he has the life experience, and he ties them both together with wisdom and ease. He brings both light-heartedness and serious spirituality to his classes, and the insight and openness gained in his presence is incomparable. Perhaps I am biased, as he has become a dear friend of mine over the last many years, however I can say for sure that if you want to learn from the best, learn from Adam.
I started my spiritual journey around 12 years ago in 2005 when I started chanting the Hare Krsna Maha Mantra. I sort of chanted it by myself; never joining a temple or group. However, it changed my life. I felt as if I 'woke up' at age 22 and ever since it's been quite a journey. Not an easy one... but definitely a journey. I never had the opportunity to learn what meditation was until I had a 3-day retreat at Dada's Anada Marga Retreat Center. There Dada wonderfully played his guitar along with the mantra that he taught us and afterwards we meditated. Meditation is something I have not figured out how to do at home since it's not as peaceful here where I live and I have roommates, but I am sure if I tried I can do it. However, I still sing kiirtan outside during my walks and listen to kiirtan on my laptop at home. Spirituality and awakening your consciousness is important. It's important to everyone. If we ALL did it, it would be a much more peaceful and cleaner planet because we are all living 'consciously'. :) Spirituality is not the easiest journey because it forces you to look inside and sort of work out your issues; but in the process you figure out what is really important and how to properly live. If you are new to attainting a spiritual practice or want to revive your current one, I highly recommend joining Dada on one of his meditation lectures/practices. You wouldn't regret it. The kind of community feeling that the Ananda Marga Retreat Center gives is hard to find. Especially with live wonderful music and yoga too! :) As a note: the way I look at us as souls...When we first come into this world, we sort of have 'dirt' on our souls and we do not shine as 'bright' as we ought to. As we chant, meditate, and have fellowship with other spiritual beings, we awaken our truest self and begin the process of removing the 'dirt', so that we can shine bright again. :)
Lindsay is a wonderfully sweet soul. She is terrific in her practice of reiki, and she sets a very relaxing session up in your home. I was very comfortable with her from the minute we met. I am continuing on with a series of sessions to further continue with my spiritual growth. Lindsay is very professional and punctual, as well. I truly enjoy working with her. I recommend her to anyone looking to work with a reiki master.
Kristen is absolutely amazing! She has helped me gain insight and understanding on my spiritual path. Her feedback on a wide range of topics along with her own personal experiences has helped increase my awareness and clarity. She recommends great sources (books, teachers), so that you also have something tangible to take with you. She is kind, warm and a joy to talk to. I recommend Kristen to anyone. I will definitely be reaching out to her again!
I have known Reverend Lucinda Martin for over 5 years and have had the blessing to receive spiritual guidance from her in many aspects of my life. I first met her when I was looking for someone to officiate my wedding. It was very important to my fiancé and I to have an outdoor wedding but still keep Catholic Tradition in our cermony. Upon meeting Lucinda, I immediately felt her passion and love for helping others in their spiritual path. She is warm, open and non judgemental. This was essential to me in my search. After seeing how beautiful our cermony was I decided to start both individual and couples spiritual guidance sessions. In the sessions I learned new tools on how to navigate my life in a more peaceful and serene way. One of my favorites is the spiritual mind treatment. Spiritual mind treatment is a format of writing out a prayer to release wounds, hurts and bring forth virtues you want. This process has drawn me closer to my Catholic Faith and enriched my life in so many ways. I continued on in my journey with Lucinda. I received career guidance, a celebration of life when my beloved bunny died and many tools to navigate life's challenges in a more peaceful way. I know I would not be where I'm at now, without Lucinda's love, support and guidance. I strongly recommend her in all her services. She is a non biased person that has helped me grow in all aspects of my faith journey. If you are looking for a deeper connection in faith, an interfaith wedding officient, career guidance, celebration of life, or simply a satchel of tools to navigate through life in a spiritually balanced way; I urge you to go with Lucinda. Blessings to you in your journey. Lauren W
Theresa has been blessed with a very special gift and she uses it wisely to help those who are searching to find their "true self". Treat yourself to a session with this wonderful healer and you will have a spiritual experience you will never forget. I have known Theresa and her spirit guide Naomi for many years and the love and wisdom that has been imparted to me in my many sessions with Theresa is something I will always cherish. I have learned so much about my self, what my purpose is in this life and why I am here from Theresa. She is truly a beautiful soul who has come into this lifetime to teach what love is all about. Teacher, life coach, intuitive healer, astrologer and more. Call her for a reading, it will change your life!
I've been working remotely with Jacquie by both phone and skype and to say it's been life changing may be dramatic but it's completely true. I felt no distance whatsoever. The healing work showed me the difference between my energy and someone else's and that when I feel bogged down, drained and fried it's probably because I've absorbed someone else's negativity. That distinction alone has brought me so much peace. The tools she taught me are currently isolating why and how that happens and are allowing me to fully heal. Cannot thank her enough. She is a hilarious, gentle, patient, wonderful human. I'd recommend her to anyone in need of emotional or spiritual refuge! :simple_smile:
I met Jay while attending one of his silent retreats in Novato. His way of engaging with each individual in the group was so inspiring, that it sparked an idea for me. As soon as we could break our silence, I invited him to our office in Silicon Valley to introduce mediation in the workplace. His presentation appropriately captured the attention of my colleagues, some of whom have never meditated before. He then led a short mediation session with a discussion afterwards. It was empowering to see someone I know in a more spiritual setting, step into a conference room and connect with my extremely busy colleagues while showing them the effectiveness of meditation.
Payton asked me questions about my history to get a better understanding of me. After talking for a while, we did a guided meditation and I felt more relaxed afterwards. We talked over some spirituality concepts too as she tried to know me better
Katie has personally helped me with many physical, metaphysical, and spiritual ailments. On the physical level, her homemade tinctures, balms, and teas have helped me relieve joint and muscle pain, seasonal allergies, fatigue, asthma, and colds. On the metaphysical and spiritual level, she's helped me manifest a home for myself in under a month through a personalized theta healing. I had traumatically and unexpectedly been pushed out of a stable living situation and was too angry to focus on finding a new place. Katie helped me visualize my current home, helped me clear my anger to gain the momentum to begin the search, and infused me with her faith that it would happen. I've known Katie for nearly 7 years. In that time, I've witnessed her develop and grow her innate gift of healing. She cares deeply about peoples well-being and has the vision to see how she can help.
Using a unique combination of subtle and physical interventions Oatsinu brings an ancient wisdom to therapy and healing. Native American 'acupuncture', herbs, ceremony and massage restore balance and harmony to restore health and circumstances- a life changing experience can be the result of this level of work: energy, spiritual and physical intervention backing your recovery. I know good work as I have been an acupuncture physician since 1990. Stephen (Jesse) Summers, DOM NM Lic# 239
Melanie has been such a blessing to me, and an integral part of my healing process. We have done some very deep healing work together, and my appointments with Melanie are part of my self care plan. She is an extremely gifted healer. Through our sessions together, I have released a lot of fear, unhealthy patterns of codependency, and have had major emotional and spiritual breakthroughs. I HIGHLY recommend Melanie.
After meeting Rev Gil and Robyn about 10 years ago, I had an intuitive knowing that Rev. Gil was to be my practitioner (spiritual counselor) and began working with him shortly thereafter. It was my first experience of working with a practitioner and, ultimately, the process was a significant contributor in my desire to pursue my own practitioner license. I found Rev. Gil to be an exceptional practitioner. He consistently acknowledged my process and journey while staying anchored in spiritual principle so I could create the shifts I was seeking. He also never hesitated to call me on my stuff, always from a place of love, so I could see how being stuck in my story was not serving me. Overall, I found the process of working with him in this way to be incredibly transformative and fundamental to my subsequent spiritual journey, so much so that I enrolled in the spiritual counselor training program myself the following fall. I worked with both Rev Gil and Robyn during my training and found them both to be wonderful mentors as I continued to explore my spiritual path. I can't recommend their work strongly enough!

I make my own henna mix using a personally tested recipe with carefully chosen pure ingredients for safe, non-toxic, healthy, and very strong, dark, beautiful, lasting henna color. No toxic black henna! No chemicals! For tattooing, I am careful and clean. I follow OSHA bloodborne pathogen standards, use sealed-sterilized tips and tubes and new sterile needles every time.
