Healing the Feminine I was quietly reminded after last week's post, or maybe it's been going on two weeks now, of how unfortunate it is that romance is sometimes inferred from my writing.  I don't necessarily intend it that way, although I do see this person's point in making the case for how bodywork and spirituality will often inform a person's sexuality, and the roles that may be demanding it. For those of you that don't know, and for many of you that have made the assumption, a majority of my work involves healing the feminine, first within oneself, and secondly with another.  This isn't to say that I'm a feminine person, rather, it's only to recognize the intricate balance that our masculine and feminine energies have with one another, the importance of understanding how they inform a person's inner landscape, and how that often contrasts with their own external realities. Not long ago I was in attendance with a well-known bodywork p...
Stay-At-Home Order Yes, it's been too long since I've written an update on here.  With the influx of Coronavirus and with how the last few weeks have taken shape, I've been on hold with getting an update ready.  With all the downtime over the last few days, I've found myself in the middle of rewrites for the backstory of this blog, and really looking forward to having a final copy for everyone to enjoy.  I know most of you don't go through this blog page by page, but getting closer to palatable copy is something that I've looked forward for a long time. I know most of you don't know my backstory simply because I've only shared bits and pieces of it throughout the years.  The downside to allowing the audience to draw their own conclusion is that a lot of assumptions and personal judgments were being made about who I am, and how I got here.  Those assumptions change when I verbalize the challenges that many of us went through while serving in Riyadh,...
King Herod and John the Baptist John and I have been talking, and we do that from time to time, and mostly in the ether, but we have been talking about how best to progress this story line and we've come upon King Herod.  Herod, as you know, is responsible for John's death in the New Testament as taken from the written text that's found beginning in Mark 6:14, and for those of you wondering, the only edition of the bible that I reference is the King James Version, and for obvious reasons.  True, I know that a lot of you will have your preferences and your debates and, in all likelihood, a very reasonable explanation of why you prefer one edition over the other.  For our purposes, and in my writing, I only reference King James.  Let's see what Mark has to say regarding John's death, and how we've found ourselves at this point in time: Mark 6:14 - 29 King James Version 14 And king Herod heard of him; (for his name was spread abroad:) and he said, That John...
Shamanic Death and Rebirth For all of this talk of what I am, and how I got to this moment in time, none has been more surrounded in mystery than my first class with John, in 2006.  There's a lot to be said if I could find the words for it, and there's more to be said when we look at the losses in both John's life, and my own, and how they reflect the intricacies of our relationship, despite both of us being born into different families and at different points in time.  And that's the thing, you know?  It's realizing that we're different people, born at different times, that affect the outcome in different ways, and at the same time, are completely the same. John, in this reality, is a well-known and well-respected bodywork instructor that specializes in the creation and instruction of Myofascial Release.  Ryan, at the time, was a young business owner that found himself with a bigger opportunity, a reluctant business partner, and the perfect storm of a sha...
