April/May 2017 Newsletter

We are delighted and excited to share our news, passion and curiosity for Higher Consciousness Healing and Embodiment. Free Flowing with Life Last summer Scott and I spent a blissful weekend by the Russian River, camping under the stars and floating lazily down the river with the sun on our backs. There was an effortless ease about going with the current and a mixture of curiosity and fear about where we would end up. At the Vitality Center we are passionate about helping you find ease and flow in your life. As Lao Tzu once said “Those who flow as...

August 2016 Newsletter

I hope this Summer is supporting you in the way Summers do! During this time, some love the temperature of the Bay Area, others yearn for the heat, just on the other side of the tunnel. Maybe you like both? East Bay chill during the week, and hot retreats on the weekend. However you are managing your outer climate, I hope you are internally thriving, as this season is coming to a close. Often marked by the beginning of a school year, or by the Autumnal Equinox, newness is approaching. May you soak up the Summer while it’s here. In...

May 2016 Newsletter

Hello, how are you doing? One of the things I have been noticing lately is how much I find myself ‘in my body’, or NOT in my body. I am surprised to become aware that a lot of time is spent not being fully present in my body. Then, I have been pondering what does it actually mean to be in my body? When I focus on my body it’s about being in present time, dropped into my base, I notice there is a lot more emotion, connection, and love. It is interesting to me that so much time could...

April 2016 Newsletter

It has been a very, very full March and April for me, with workshops in Astro Constellation, Tibetan Pulsing and then a weeklong retreat with Thomas Hubl, as part of 2-year Timeless Wisdom Training.    T o say I feel like I have been put in a washing machine is some what of an understatement. It feels like someone has scraped all the loose grit from my center, so that a lot more capacity to feel and discover has been opened up, and my process is going quite strongly. The intensity is high. And, there is also something satisfying about...

Gratitude

I am so grateful to have you all in my life, and that you trust me as an element to further your growth in who you REALLY are. I am so moved when I see people’s lives transform, and smell and taste emotion emitting from your cells. The full range of emotion is what we are going for here, to be able to really feel it all. Marshall Rosenberg, Ph D says it so well in his book on Nonviolent Communication where he quotes Rollo May “the mature person becomes able to differentiate feelings into as many nuances, strong and passionate...

Somato Respiratory Integration

SRI continues to be a tantamount tool and adjunct to network care. It is designed to work hand in hand with NSA. It will take you over humps, and move you into greater opportunity for growth and transformation. We have Jeannie set up to come to the practice one time per week. If you can make it during her day, it is great to upgrade your network care.  Please check the calendar to be sure of the dates she will be with us. And, once you have learned Stages One and Two, practicing these on your own at home on...

Dance

I recently went to Sweat Your Prayers in Sausalito this past Sunday. It is a way to connect in your body, connect to source, and have abundant sources of love enter your being, and many other emotions can come up as well. You can dance internally connecting to source, and connect with others on the dance floor. I love having people I love be there with me, so if any of you are so inclined, come join in on Sundays at 8:30. I most likely will be there every other week, but if dance is your thing, I highly recommend...

ULTIMATUM

This is the creme de la creme program offered by Donald Epstein, founder of Network. It is a week long intensive where you deeply experience yourself and your programming and get the opportunity to rewire, reorganize and reach for the greatest version of you. I will be attending this program this summer along with two people in the practice. Yay! It is the second week in August and Laura Dabby, the practitioner who spent some time in the office in April, will be taking care of your spines and souls. She is well trained and gifted, so I hope that...

Thoughts and Observations

It has been a while since I have put my thoughts and feelings on paper. And in the time period I have been through so much. I am not even sure where to begin. Love. That is always a good place to start. It is so important to create strategies for ourselves that connect us to the truth of who we really are, and that no one, and no thing is going to pull us off track. Because when we can find ourselves there, that is where the love resides.  That is not an easy task, at least not for...
