'A man never rises so high — as when he knows not whither he is going.' ~ Oliver Cromwell And learning to trust over and over and over and over and... On July 23, I was invited to come live in Sonoma, California, at a retreat center. I met the owner of the place during … Continue reading Betrayal without Bitterness
I often can't find the words to describe the UnCommon Touch experience. So, I'll let another tell you a little about it!
Every now and again, I feel the need to get a taste of my own medicine. When I do that, I click around and find out when and where Panache Desai is going to be. This time it was Black Mountain, North Carolina. What's little road trip? Only seven hours between here and there, right? … Continue reading A Taste of my own Medicine, Self-Worth & Pissin’ People Off
There are those who think of me as 'merely' naive when it comes to things of spirit. Here, I ask they consider their own limitation of expression that appears bound by others' ideas & ideals. The string of logic posed by quite a few is that I've not studied spiritualism, metaphysics, any aspect of any … Continue reading Spiritual Naivety?
Unknot the knickers, unpinch the panties; it's not in the nikked sense of the word, it's in the George Carlin sense. Not exactly rated-G but not porn.

This post is inspired by two events last week. The first involved a session with a new client; the second, a reminder from Panache Desai to play like a five-year old. On Saturday, a new client came to see me for a number of reasons--some shared, some not. He happens to be an older gentleman, … Continue reading On being childlike
A woman who called the other day to see about scheduling an appointment asked that question. She's feeling like one hot mess and wanted to know if I could help. She'd heard about me through local gossip (free marketing, anyone?) and wanted to know how this "stuff" works, "exactly". I dunno exactly. Here's … Continue reading So how does this healing stuff work, exactly?
It's not New Age; it's of the Ages. It's real, not woo-woo. It doesn't require belief or faith (although I'm sure it helps to not prefer a root canal). It doesn't interfere with belief or faith. Its only magic is in its simplicity. I breathe, you heal. You change. You shift. You de-stress. You find … Continue reading UnCommon Touch
