"Teaching others 'Getting to the Heart of the Matter'
within the anatomical tissues and structure,
has been my favorite past time.
Thank you for your trust and allowing me the opportunity
to share space, education and part of evolutions with you. "
“We each have the choice, will and option to acknowledge where we are everyday to make real changes, when we accept and en-lighten our own personal, universal truths and paths.
It takes hard work and dedication to our practices with many new layers of mindful attention. That pay in the course, in the acts of being and doing.
We benefit most when we are willing to expand our conscious awareness,
understand that absolutely everything put forth or received,
affects every universal aspect, inside and out; be it body, energy, or citta (mind-heart). Some how, some way, be it little or big.
Live within the full truth of the discovery, that is specific to an individual reality and has been presented for us to live out fully.
We can learn to be our own best attendant.
Learn to live and be well.”
