You’re beautifully self aware and on a continual journey of transformation. You remind yourself constantly how much good there is in your life.
But that doesn’t change the longing inside you to feel and to be more than you are now. Not in a “fix it” kind of way. But in a deep truth knowing of your gifts and an awareness of the passing of time.
Intellectually you know, you believe in your natural radiance. You suspect it’s still there, but you don’t know how to call it forth. You’ve lost touch with your luminous center, the effortless happiness you know is within. And it’s effecting the love you want to express the world.
When you’re trying incredibly hard but nothing seems to change, patterns you want to banish keep repeating, and you feel a sense of dissatisfaction with your life, it may be time to take a break from the linear and open to the sacred.
Sometimes you need a Stream of Blessings
Stream of Blessings sessions are an opportunity to rest in a cradle of loving-kindness and receive.
Through sacred visualization, sound, and mantra, these one on one sessions provide a rare experience — a sanctuary in time and space to dwell in healing, purifying, and blessing energies.
We live in a world that emphasizes action at the expense of inner wisdom. Stream of Blessing sessions honor and restore the feminine qualities of receptivity and deep knowing.
The result is a return to your natural luminosity, and the capacity to carry your clear knowing presence in the world.
What happens in a session?
We meet via Skype (or telephone) for 90 minutes. I’ve already created a sacred container by engaging in meditation before your arrival.
You come with an open heart and mind, holding an intention or prayer for what you most want to receive.
We talk, but most of the session is non-linear. We move beyond words, inviting the alchemy of blessings.
I lead you gently through a 4-part meditation designed to remove energy blocks, collect scattered energy, and settle your body, speech, and mind. I’ll hold space for you to rest in this pure, natural centering. You’ll also discover an effortless heart opening that enables you to be fully receptive to the recitations ahead.
Listen as passages from an ancient sadhana, a prayer text, waft over you. The words are chanted in Tibetan, a foreign language, so there’s no need to cling or comprehend each word. Sometimes you will be given guidance in English or asked for an occasional response. But most of the time you are simply, gently present.
We work with visualization. A stream of blessings, shimmering with the pure light of love, rains down from above. You are filled, washed and illuminated by pure compassion and it keeps on flowing. Answering your prayer, honoring your intention for this session, giving you more than you even knew you wanted to ask for.
Your own inner light, once misplaced or depleted, resonates and responds like tuning forks singing together or a drop of water joining a vast ocean.
You rest in this state of expanded awareness, humming with self-radiance as mantras and sacred prayers conclude. The stream of blessings stays with you even after the session ends. Healing. Purifying. Freeing your heart. Polishing your clarity of mind.
You discover your own bioluminescence. You leave with a vital experience of your light and your wholeness, separate from the patterns and challenges in your life and work.
In time you will know how to maintain your heart essence because you’ll recognize the moment you start to drift, and you’ll have practices to bring you back. You will be able to enter dark and confused places — yours and others — and illuminate them with love and compassion.
You’ll move forward in action, in harmony with inner wisdom.

Why I offer these sessions
In 1989 I experienced a shattering brain injury while working. In the emergency room, I had an indescribably beautiful near-death vision that showed me levels of harmony and reality far beyond our awareness.
In the years of grief, hospital rehabilitation, and healing that followed I became a shaman, a “walker between the worlds” of different realities. I journeyed first for my own life and then for the lives of others. Since that time I’ve been recognized as a shaman by indigenous shaman from Brazil and Peru, and by alternative healers.
When I met my Teacher and began to practice Buddhism, I immediately saw a relationship between my shamanic work and the Tibetan Vajrayana practices. I frequently spoke to my beloved Rinpoche about the connections I was making, asking if I could direct these practices to my healing work with others. He always supported this, reminding me only that it was essential to do this work from a heart space of Bodhichitta, the union of wisdom and compassion with the singular wish to benefit beings.
For many years I’ve been doing these practices for others “under the radar.”
It’s unusual to make them so public, and I have to admit I’m not entirely comfortable doing so. But things have happened in my life and outer events over the past year that prove to me both the need for and the power of these blessing practices.
I make these sessions available to you because I believe in them with absolute conviction. I know you will receive the blessings if you are receptive to them.
Open Your Heart
There are times when things need conscious effort and there are times to let go. Entangled situations and deep transformation ask you to step away from what you know (or think you know) and journey without a map. Without knowing where your next step will be or even what the landscape will look like when you open your eyes.
It requires an open heart, a willingness to rest effortlessly in the sacred, belief that there are energies greater than your singular being in play, and trust in whatever unfolds.
If this describes you, where you are, and what you seek in your life, I welcome you.
What’s Included in Your Session?
- Discovery Questionnaire. You fill this out before your session so we’re ready to dive deep.
- Sacred Space. I spend the 30 minutes leading up to your session consciously moving into sacred awareness and creating a container of blessings and sanctuary.
- 90 Minute Skype Call. Our session begins with issues raised in your questionnaire and moves beyond words to prayers, practices, and visualizations.

I am currently accepting sessions for August 2013.
Payments and Policies: Once you’ve made a payment you’re in my mental and energetic queue; that space will not be given to anyone else. Because of that, all payments are non-refundable. Please do not schedule a session if this will be a problem for you.
Sometimes things come up, I understand. You may cancel and reschedule your session provided you give 72 hours notice. If you cancel with less than 72 hours, I will lead the session as a distance session ie: without direct contact with you. You will still receive the blessings, and still have the opportunity to exchange a follow-up message. It will just be a different kind of experience.
Your session begins when you say an absolute yes to working with me. Unseen energies arise from your action and continue their dance up to our meeting and beyond.
It will be an honor and a joy to work with you.
