Announcing a Spiritual Retreat in Italy

It takes a lot more than intellectual knowledge of Medicine Power to become a Medicine Person, and much of what it takes is the ability to feel things, rather than just think about them.
— Sun Bear, Medicine Man

Happy Spring! Up here in Asheville, North Carolina’s mountains spring has finally sprung! Being steeped and surrounded in nature induces perceptual clarity and, as new research claims, is also good for your health. Recent medical research suggests listening to “earth sounds” as an essential strategy for provoking physical and spiritual balance.

In clinical studies we have proven that two hours a day of nature sounds significantly reduce stress hormones up to 800% and will activate 500-600 DNA segments known to be responsible for healing and repairing the body.
— Dr. Joe Dispenza

The Huffington post recently featured yours truly in an article celebrating Medical Intuition! (View our Press & Media page to read the article.) I feel both humbled and thrilled to share my passion for championing clairvoyance and this fascinating Intuitive art known as Medical Intuition. Writer Claudia Ricci’s life was saved by following the accurate guidance of a Medical Intuitive. Her mission is to shed light on Medical Intuition and provide referrals to practitioners with good track records for appraising an individual’s health status. As a high profile Huff Post writer, Claudia brings needed visibility to Intuition’s powerful role in maintaining proactive robust health. :)

Meditation Musings & Winter Events

Journey to the center of self... Meditation is a sanity saving skill that deserves to be honed; steeping in daily silence reintroduces the joy and expansiveness of total being-ness, not just the doing-ness. Although it can take a while to become seated into inner silence, it’s worth every effort. Eventually you will feel a sense of bliss and balance that was previously eclipsed by compulsive busyness.

Meditation is a technique for “reversing the senses.” Through quieting and internalizing focus we redirect energy towards the core of the self. After meditation most folks feel re-set and refreshed, perceiving more vivid color and imagery upon the screen of consciousness.

Too often seekers relate to the practice of turning attention inward as either an exercise in seeking redemption or a frustrating battle to quiet the mind. If we meditate properly, the mind naturally quiets down. We just have to dig through the top layers of restlessness - like drilling a well – patience and persistence pay off. Eventually, when we stabilize to “still point”, we move to the interior where the “light and sound” totally eclipses the runaway train of thoughts taking up real estate in our melons. The process is simple, close your eyes, relax and notice the rhythmic cycle of your breath. Focus on feeling internally – relax into breathing, let the thoughts come and go. If you encounter passing thoughts, redirect focus toward feeling your breath. Relax, let go, and enjoy the ride.

This winter I have several exciting events brewing! Join us for...

Successful Intuition Seminar in Asheville

The Asheville, North Carolina seminar was a great success! We had full capacity attendance within the coziness of the Heart House. The eager, spunky Asheville crowd inspired me to deliver my best Intuitive group lesson, which encapsulated into two and a half brief hours. Plans are in the works for a larger (possibly two-day) Intuition seminar in late winter/early spring 2013!

For most folks, the Intuitive arts are somewhat of a conceptual abstraction, yet Mothers Intuition and daily “gut instincts” inform, guide, and reliably protect us all. Intuition, at the end of the day, is not really such an esoteric subject. The challenge is to make room in both the “hard drive” of the head and heart so guidance can be heard. One of my very first lessons on intuition came from my early mentor - the late, great Sun Bear. He said, “Charley… Intuition is not supernatural, its completely natural.” I have been leading an all-natural lifestyle ever since.
