My Calling as a Healer

Over twenty-five years ago, I heeded the call to become a healer.

I‘ve opened my life to experiences which have taught, healed and forged me in the fire of the healer’s journey.

I stand today as more than a naturopathic doctor, but also a modern-day medicine woman, spiritual mystic and a channel for divine healing energy.

I have spent a great part of my life learning, training and practicing holistic healing, consciousness and mind-body-energy medicines. Along with being a licensed naturopathic doctor, I have trained in a myriad of other holistic and mind-body-spirit healing modalities.

I have been honed by all of these modalities. Most importantly, I have listened to Spirit in each step of my journey.

My heart has been hurting and I’ve been in overwhelm… At a CEU conference this weekend, we dove deeper into how bad it is with toxicity, GMO’s, vaccinations, 5G/EMF’s, our collective deteriorating health, and the health of our planet.

Self Love: All Parts of You Deserve Love

Self-love and self-compassion are two of the most important steps that we can take in our healing and evolution. But, often I hear from baffled patients, “How can I really step into loving myself”?

What’s Love Got To Do With It

What’s love got to do with it?  Good question. From my perspective…Everything!    To me the song, “What’s Love Got to Do With It” sung by Tina Turner has always felt that it was written by someone who was hurt and closed down to love. However, recently I heard Tina Turner, give another perspective on…

Awakening Into Light

We had an amazing experience at the Three Oracles Event last Thursday. From this event I was left with a deep knowing that these higher dimensional beings so want to help and lead us through the healing of this wounding, so that we may awaken and remember who we truly are. They also made it very clear that they will be transmitting a huge amount of healing light at my upcoming intensive, Healing the Patriarchal Wound.

They also made this clear…

Healing the Patriarchal Wound

Is Not about wallowing in the sorrow

Nor is it about pointing the finger

It is about:

Awakening into the Light

The Light of Love.
The Light of our Freedom.

The Light of our Embodiment and Empowerment

May 18-20, 2018 in Sebastopol, California, with Dr. Melissa Sophia Joy

Change the world…as you heal, the world heals.
