Holoenergetic Healing is a profound method for healing with the energy of the "Whole." It is based on the awareness that as we come into wholeness through love, the enormous energy we use to maintain the illusion of separation from Unity is iterated and can be directed to heal the physical body, resolve emotional issues,…See More

2 ~ What brought you to Ashland & Southern Oregon area? Let us know what’s been inspiring you these days!
I completed my doctorate in the Bay Area and came north seeking wide open spaces with open minds to match! I love the dynamic, gentle beauty of Ashland. It seems the hills, clouds, and vegetation are engaged in a constant conversation.
3 ~ What would you love to offer to and share with our community? What do you envision could be a few of the most beneficial things that could happen from actively using this site? Feel free to be outrageous!
I help build healthy, lasting bonds between people...whether they are members of a family or a community. I love helping people to see deeply into one another and recognize their connectedness with all of life y meeting divinity in the eyes of others. I love helping adults and children who have survived tremendous trauma to dig deep into their own healing, uncovering the "gift" buried in the trauma. I am passionate about the use of myth and storytelling for transforming lives, evolving brains, and building community. I share healing through my work as a psychotherapist utilizing expressive arts methodologies to integrate mind/body systems.My personal experiences of trauma and as a supporter of family members struggling with severe mental illness have equipped me for this sacred work. It is time for the healing of eons of intergenerational trauma. That is what I am all about!
4 ~ Please describe any projects or businesses you'd like to develop, if any? What is your "JOB" (aka "Joy of Being")? What especially delights you?
I am currently working at the Community Counseling Center as a licensed marriage and family therapist and clinical psychologist intern. I specialize in sandtray and expressive arts therapies. I would like to develop a theatre in Ashland dedicated to sociodrama, much like Bohl's Theatre of the oppressed. My former career as an actor, writer, and producer of live theatre has prepared me for this. Through meditation, I have received a clear vision of this project. I am very interested in connecting with others who have similar interests.
5 ~ Which intriguing concepts, local endeavors, links, music, art, websites, books, films, inventions have you been exploring?
One of my favorite books is "Speech of the Grail," which I understand was written by an Ashland local. If anyone could arrange an introduction I would be forever grateful!
I am interested in getting involved at the Goddess Temple at Jackson Wellsprings.
I greatly enjoy the local store, "Love Revolution," and appreciate what Brenda and Mitchell are doing to dispell the sexual shadow. I sometimes present in the educational spae there.
Many people who know me have suggested I write a book about my journey from Southern Baptist Sunday School teacher to Beverly Hills stripper. I'd like to weave the neuropsychology of embodied movement into the text. Perhaps soon I will begin working on this.
I just completed a participatory research project on female's who engage in intimate rage enactments. The findings were phenomenal and I would like to repeat this project with male participants.

According to reports appearing in the Mexican print media, a federal district court judge in Yucatán yesterday overturned a permit issued to Monsanto, the U.S.-based multinational corporation that is a leading purveyor of genetically modified crops (GMOs). The permit, which had been issued by the Secretariat of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food on June 6, 2012, allowed the commercial planting of GM soy bean in Yucatán. The ruling was based on consideration of scientific evidence demonstrating (to the judge’s satisfaction) that GMO soy crop plantings threaten Mexican honey production in the states of Campeche, Quintana Roo, and Yucatán. An op-ed piece appearing in yesterday’s La Jornada (July 23), applauded the decision with insightful commentary suggesting that the federal agencies involved in this dispute are guilty of corruption and collusion with the transnational Gene Giant.
Obama will bypass Congress with a plan forcing power plants to cut their emissions by 30% (from 2005 levels) over 15 years. Coal produced an estimated 74% of total CO2 emissions in the U.S. in 2012, compared to other forms of electricity generation like natural gas and petroleum. The plan represents one of the biggest actions taken by the U.S. government — and the biggest taken by any U.S. president — to slow climate change.
The founders of a California company are gearing up to make a difference in their state’s future—about 2 million gallons worth of a difference. As the state battles a lengthy drought and considers spending $7 billion to $9 billion to produce, transport and store fresh water, WaterFX, a San Francisco-based, independent water producer says it has been testing a potential solution for the past year.
It functions by filling the black boiler with salty sea water in the morning, then tightening the cap. As the temperature and pressure grows, steam is forced downwards through a connection pipe and collects in the lid, which acts as a condenser, turning the steam into fresh water. Once Diamanti established the fundamentals were sound, he experimented with a series of concepts for the aesthetic of the object.
When U.S. photojournalist Peter Essick visited India and China for the first time, he was struck by how different life there was compared with American cities. But when he returned almost two decades later, he found the changes “staggering.” Bangalore now reminds him of the Silicon Valley, and Beijing and New Delhi are smoggier than anything he had ever encountered at home.
