You'll find links below for a sampling of what has worked well for me in my own healing and awakening process as well as in my practice of helping others. In addition, I know wonderfully talented healing artists, therapists and teachers of many varied traditions and orientations. Feel free to ask me for referrals. This list is ongoing and evolving. You may wish to check back from time to time for new additions. Enjoy.

The Love Awakening's Embrace of Acceptance and "I Love Me" Meditation 

The Love Awakening, an all-volunteer community in California, USA, is dedicated to assisting humanity in awakening to the power of love. I volunteered as their director for for more than a dozen years, working with a love-filled group of friends as we engaged in joyful sing-along time at retirement centers, beach cleanups, festivals, fundraisers, empowering classes and many lively, loving events. Download the smart phone app "Insight Timer" and you'll find a free recording of the 'Embrace of Acceptance' which you can also listen to here. You're also welcome to enjoy a free recording of 'The "I Love Me" Meditation.'

The Rodan Foundation 

The Rodan Foundation's intention is to create a powerful, growing community of awakening beings who experience love, peace, prosperity, unity, healing, harmony, and revelation through learning and service. Located in Burlingame, California, USA, and founded by Reverend Clarke Carraway in 1981, the foundation is dedicated to encouraging individuals to reclaim personal power and accept responsibility for their lives. The foundation's primary intention is being a source of love, light and revelation. I recommend the YouTube lectures for empowering, practical, and inspiration. 

Bi-Aura Therapy 

Bi-Aura therapy is an advanced system of bio-energy healing which works through balancing the human bio-field. The therapists are trained to detect and remove blockages in the bio-field through a selection of mostly non-touch techniques. My husband, Dan Kahn, is the chief instructor for the Bi-Aura foundation and offers sessions remotely.  I am currently in training for certification to practice this wonderful and comprehensive healing work. 

Network Spinal Analysis 

Network Spinal Analysis is a profound, totally gentle and honoring way to evaluate and adjust the spine. Utilized by Chiropractors, the purpose of the care is to allow restoration of proper nerve function for full health expression and peak performance. I spent over a decade in NSA care with many practitioners (you'll find them all over the world) and feel that it helped to save my life. Really. Good stuff. 

CranioSacral Therapy 

CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Using a soft touch, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system. This is one of the systems of healing that I have received training in and have experienced beautiful results. 

Focusing 

Focusing is a psychotherapeutic process developed by psychotherapist Eugene Gendlin. It is a process for helping your mind listen to the wisdom of your body. It involves holding a kind of open, non-judging attention to an internal knowing which is directly experienced but is not yet in words. Having powerfully personal healing experiences with Focusing led me to receive training as a facilitator. 
Nonviolent Communication 

Nonviolent Communication is sometimes referred to as compassionate communication. Its purpose is to create human connections that empower compassionate giving and receiving. It is based on historical principles of nonviolence - the natural state of compassion when no violence is present in the heart. NVC reminds us what we already instinctively know about how good it feels to authentically connect to another human being. I often recommend this work to help heal relationship conflict patterns. 
The Work of Byron Katie 

The Work is a simple yet powerful process of inquiry that teaches you to identify and question the thoughts that cause all the suffering in the world. It’s a way to understand what’s hurting you, and to address the cause of your problems with clarity. In its most basic form, The Work consists of four questions and the turnarounds. I find that the work can lead us out of our old, stuck places of suffering into freedom, liberation and greater self-love. 
The Michael Teachings 

The Michael Teachings database offers the largest resource of Michael teaching available online. These spiritual teachings provide a framework of understanding for our spiritual journey, helping us to chart our spiritual progress and to embrace self and others with compassion, acceptance and love. I offer Michael Chart interpretation and instruction on the basics of the teachings. To receive a Michael Chart, I recommended Shepherd Hoodwin's services.    
The Four Count Breath 

The Four Count Breath, also known as Tactical Breathing, is an easy-to-learn skill to help calm intense states of physiological arousal such as fear responses and anxiety. With practice, this skill will bring the heart rate and breathing rate back into optimal ranges for better performance under stressful conditions. The instruction for the technique is delivered in this four minute video by my fantastic husband, Dan Kahn.  

Notes From The Universe 

Tut.com's Notes From The Universe are brief, inspirational passages personalized with your name, goals, and dreams. They are empowering, creative, and fun. It's a simple way to receive the gift of regular reminders of the 'bigger picture' and to have an infusion of positivity. The notes often lighten my day and help me remember and realign to my purpose. My first 'goal' has already come true. Tip: I signed up under a special name I like to be called so when I receive my note from The Universe, The Universe addresses me in a way that feels sweetly personal. Have fun.
