Series of six weekly or bi-monthly hourly sessions.
I offer ongoing coaching with sound healing, meditation, and insight counseling. A refreshing way to integrate your busy work, family and creative life with a greater sense of peacefulness. Ideal for people who are already practicing some form of meditation and are seeking new insights.
Individual Feldenkrais Sessions
Does your back hurt? Are you finding that you're stiff in the morning? Do you have aches and pains that limit the pleasure of an active life? Are you pushing yourself beyond your limits and are you exhausted and not as effective in your work, play, and life as you would like to be? I am a Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner and I offer individual sessions tailored to your needs. In six sessions you will notice a definite transformation in your comfort, ease, and sense of well being. I give sessions in my beautiful Japanese tea house. I also offer individualized instructions in spas and swimming pools if you need to develop particular exercises for chronic conditions or recent injuries.
Combine a sound healing session, hot tub, walking meditation in the garden with your own private half or whole day retreat. You will have exclusive use of my tranquil Japanese Tea House to meditate, write, paint or even take a nap. I provide tea and fruit, towels available for couples or groups up to six. Women's circles have found this perfect to honor a special event or simply to gather and relax in a lovely unusual setting. Please inquire regarding prices and meals.
Live Music Performances
I play Japanese Koto, bamboo and Native American flutes, clay ocarinas and Tibetan bowls, Japanese Temple bells and Chinese Gong. Trained in classical Western and Japanese music, I specialize in a genre of meditative music combining many of these instruments. My music can transform your event. Ideal for a calming introduction to conferences, cultural events, gallery openings, book/poetry reading, fundraising events. Perfect for special celebrations, weddings, women's circles, birthdays, poetry readings, or honoring a special friend. Together with you I will create music to enrich your event.
