Evolve Personally. Succeed Professionally.
Cancer gifted the challenge that awakened my divine nature. Through Self-Healing practices documented in Dance With Cancer and Herbs of Grace books, my family hereditary chronic anemia healed all well as the breast cancer. This transformation shifted me from a Los Angeles, California sixties metal sculptor, fashion and jewelry designer single mother to a practitioner of the ancient science and an Evolutionary Embodiment Educator and Practitioner. This journey led to healing centers and the founding of the School of Natural Medicine in 1977 in Cambridge, England.
As a child I wanted to be a disciple of Christ and kneel before him in devotion. I wanted to live in a world where everyone shone and radiated halos. I longed to wash the feet of holy men and women. I longed to live a Biblical life. As I interacted with the world, I received its wounds, challenges and truths but never stopped seeking spiritual divinity. In 1976, I found the Radha Soami Sant Mat true spiritual path and continue after four decades to practice and live truth within my being.
My cancer healing path inspired me to explore and experience natural foods, herbs, yoga, Tai Chi, Chi Gong, Gestalt groups, Massage, Homeopathy, I Ching, Rolfing, transformational creative movement with Emily Conrad of Continuum, depth conversations and experiences with Pearl Dorris of the I Am Brotherhood in Mount Shasta, and a deep commitment to Nichirin Shoshu Buddhism, I never stopped seeking, exploring and embodying what I felt and knew to be truth in experience.
n 1977, I found a Path of the Soul, the Sant Mat Path of Truth and my spiritual teacher Charan Singh Ji. I was inspired by leaders and teachers in the natural medicine field that I met and studied with personally: Edmond Bordeaux Szekely, author of the Essene Gospel of Peace; Naturopath Iridologists Dr. Raymond Christopher and Dr. Bernard Jensen; Medical Doctor Iridologist, Josef Deck; and Heilpraktiker Iridologist, Willy Hauser of the Felke Institute in Germany; Denny Johnson of the Rayid Iris Model who supported my life work dedication to share my experience of healing breast cancer.
Continued studies include: Polarity Therapy with Pierre Pannetier and the Alive Fellowship in Calistoga; Cranial therapies including Core Synchronicity Soul of Hand at the New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics, Matrix Works Living Systems; Trauma; Addiction; Chi Gung; Tai Chi; Yoga forms including Yogi Bhajan Kundalini, Vinyasa, Hatha, Bikram Yoga, Ayengar, Healing Kriyas, and Restorative Yoga; Taoist Chi New Tsang in Chiang Mai, Thailand; and Mayan Abdominal Massage; Childbirth Doula Training; Zone and Meridian Therapy; Ayurveda in India; Ann Wigmore Hippocrates Living Foods in Puerto Rico; Colon Therapies, Essential Oils studies in England and with Young Living Essential Oils, Flower Essence studies with Nora Weeks at the Bach Centre in the UK in 1977 and with the Flower Essence Society as I embraced deeper learning through a lifestyle of self-care, self-healing, spiritual practice and personal embodiment as a living example.
From 1988, SNM was based in Boulder, Colorado USA, with worldwide Retreat and Immersion teaching in South Africa, Malaysia, Iceland, United Kingdom, Australia, Philippines, Canada, Thailand, Cambodia, Portugal, Ann Wigmore Hippocrates Living Foods in Puerto Rico and the Institute of Naturopathy and Yogic Sciences now called The NatureCure Institute near Bangalore In India.
