He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.

— Albert Einstein

Our story:

We met in 1991 at the Church of Religious Science in Santa Fe, New Mexico and were married a year later at Embudo Station. We both believe we were destined to come together to love and work in this lifetime. We moved in 1994 to Colorado for Melanie to attend Naropa University and for Gail to attend the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine. We have found over the years that our work has moved in similar directions; and the process of discovery has been exciting and joyful.

We believe:

We are spiritual beings having a human experience and our natural state is of vibrant health and well being. We come into a body to accelerate our growth as spiritual beings. To this end, we face challenges throughout our lifetime. How those challenges are handled (consciously and unconsciously) profoundly impacts our health. We use a variety of modalities to help you remove the blocks to your natural state of vibrant health and seek to provide an environment in which healing can occur.

Some things we practice and teach:

Meditation offers us an opportunity to sit with ourselves. This can be very uncomfortable at times. We often don't want to hear what we're thinking or what we're feeling. Eckert Tolle in Power of Now, says we think we're using our minds, but the truth is, most of the time, our minds are using us. Through the practice of meditation, we can learn to watch our thoughts and feelings, and in this way, release the power they have over us. We can become adults in an often immature world.

Prayer (be it to God, to angels, to nature, or to a loved one who has passed over) offers us the space to let go. Very often, when we are working on our own, we try so hard that we constrict the space around ourselves. We can be working on an art project, a job proposal, or an emotional issue. When we pray, we open ourselves to guidance beyond our limited minds. We open up to information stored in our unconscious and the mysteries of the world.

Broken Toys

As children bring their broken toys,
With tears for us to mend;
I brought my broken dreams to God
Because he was my friend.
But then instead of leaving him in peace to work alone,
I hung around and tried to help, with ways that were my own.
At last I snatched them back and cried
"How could you be so slow?"
"My child," He said, "What could I do?
You never let them go."

— author unknown

Gratitude has been shown (in many studies) to have a positive impact on physical health. It brings warmth into our bodies, and helps us connect with others. Cultivating gratitude is a conscious act of being with ourselves and allowing a feeling to arise. Often, we say thank-you without feeling the sensation of gratitude. We rush past the emotion and miss the gift and the positive physiology changes. In Messages from Water, Masuro Emoto, demonstrates how water responds to the vibrations of anger, love and gratitude. As one might surmise, the water crystals that form in response to positive emotions are much more beautiful. Our bodies are primarily water. Shifting the internal messages we give ourselves can have a profound impact on our physical and emotional health.

One of the basic laws of mind is "what we pay attention to multiplies", yet we often spend a lot of time and energy complaining about what we lack. When we shift our mental focus to what we have, and feel gratitude for the good in our lives, the good begins to multiply.

Awareness is bringing meditation into the world. Awareness is the process of stopping our reactive patterns and thoughts and getting present to what is. It helps us respond to this moment, not to our history or our fear for the future. Awareness helps us to know ourselves and our world better. It is the process of cultivating the observer within, with loving compassion and non-attachment.
