The experiences that contributed to my life to feel whole and creative occurred initially within the context                         of our own family and community.  I experienced my family's loving care, the teachings of Naturopathic Medicine, and genuine friendship and connection with community.  We share traditional teachings from oral traditions, traditional ways of life and spiritual philosophies, storytelling and the arts.  This is the reasons why  I've chosen the life long studies and practice of Traditional Naturopathic Medicine, Healing Philosophies and the Fine Arts.                                                              In 1992  after meeting Mary Burmeister, I integrated Jin Shin Jyutsu into my practice.
