Gnosis Podcast: My conversation with Sarah Brown about Regression Therapy (and other things)

Truly good conversations are special. They are memorable. Each with its own timbre and feel, the best pique contemplation and evoke emotion. They both challenge and delight. For me, this conversation, recorded in April 2020 with Sarah Brown, host of the Gnosis Podcast, is one of the best discussions I’ve ever had about the work that I do. I am grateful to Sarah for her interest, her openness, and her thought-provoking questions. It was an honor to be her guest.

I have one clarification. During Regression Therapy, it is not the therapist that goes into trance, it is the client. For clearing work or long-distance energy healing, I do put myself into light trance or a state of connectedness.

Thanks for listening!

New and different and good

UPDATE 1/9/2021: This post is outdated. My practice will be closed until further notice.

Well. Here we are together in the midst of a global pandemic and a formidable and omni-reaching shift in the way of the world.

How are you?

For me, watching the change in our world and witnessing people’s reaction to it has been an exercise in objectivity, humility, and way-finding. We’ve all heard the gross and sometimes comic generalization of “There are two kinds of people in this world…” and while it’s always an oversimplification, we can apply it here for example’s sake. What we are and what we see around us (though not necessarily across the board on everything) are those who deny and hang on and fight and yearn for what was, and those who see change and recognize the need to work with it, find opportunity, and seek the joy in what is now. We all know logically that it’s far more sustainable, ground-covering, and fun to swim with the current than to wear ourselves out fighting against it and going nowhere. But getting to the point where going with the flow or adapting to change is even an option often means freeing ourselves of habits and burdens and expectations and norms, and that can feel, if not impossible, then downright scary.

It’s not impossible, though. It is very possible.

Professionally, the way I worked before is not the way I can work now. It is also likely that the way it was will be out of the question for the foreseeable future. So I’ve made some changes that I’d love to share with you. While I am not meeting with anyone in person right now due to coronavirus and a deep responsibility to my clients, my family, and the community, I’d love to share with you what we can do together.

REGRESSION THERAPY

Because of the profound emotional nature of regression therapy, it is a service that I have made the ethical decision to only do live in person. I believe it is very important to be side-by-side with people as they journey to their deepest challenges to transform them and release the weight of them. I want to be able to do this without masks between us, while holding your hand and giving you as many tissues as you need. This kind of deep work is not distant work. 

Without exception, I will hold to this ethical stance for all new clients. If we have not met together before, we will meet together at some point in the future. I encourage you to please reach out to me through my contact page. I have been compiling a waiting list over the past few months and will get back in touch with each of you in turn when I am scheduling appointments again. The opportunity to schedule an appointment when the time comes will be on a first come, first served basis. I cannot predict when I will be seeing clients again.

I will consider a remote regression therapy session only for those of you for whom I have facilitated a regression therapy session before. We will speak extensively beforehand to identify the emotion at the heart of your current challenge (you know the process) and I will consult directly with Spirit on whether or not it is in your highest good to proceed with a distance session. If we get the go-ahead, we can set up a time to meet via Zoom. The cost for these sessions is $125/hour.

I will not be offering remote Life Between Lives sessions.

REMOTE ENERGY HEALING

Some of my clients prefer energy healing to regression therapy. I invite you to please read about this option in depth here, and consider it as an alternative to regression therapy if you are among those whom I have not seen before. As with everything right now, this would be remote. The cost is $125/hour. For those of you interested in in-person energy healing, please contact me and I will add you to my waiting list.

SPIRIT RELEASE

I am still honoring my personal sabbatical from spirit release work. If we have worked together in the past, you are welcome to contact me, but I am not taking new clients at this time.

REMOTE COUNSELING SESSION

We may set up a time to meet via Zoom for a counseling or consultation session. This time is for you to ask in-depth and personalized questions about regression therapy or energy work, or for remote personal spiritual counseling. My hourly rate for counseling is $100/hour, prorated to the amount of time we spend together.

QUICK Q & A

If you are not sure what you’d like to do or you have questions about energy healing or regression therapy, you are welcome to email me. If it would be helpful to you, I’d be happy to chat on the phone with you for a few minutes to help you in making a plan for yourself. 

BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS

In the meantime, following are some books that I highly recommend to my clients beginning their own spiritual journey of freedom and empowerment. If you’d like to learn more, these are wonderful. 

Robert Schwartz
Your Soul’s Plan: Discovering the Real Meaning of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born
Your Soul’s Gift: The Healing Power of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born

Michael Newton
Journey of Souls
Destiny of Souls
Memories of the Afterlife

If you are interested in recommendations for informative and inspiring reading on spiritual awakening or kundalini, please let me know.

Finally, I’m excited to share the news that I closed my downtown Spokane office and have moved my work into my home. It’s a beautiful, calm, bright space, made even lovelier by the urban grove of Ponderosa and cedars just outside the windows. We can all say a happy farewell to city street noise and paid parking. I look forward to welcoming you into this new space when we meet or when we meet again. I’ll share the address with you when we confirm our in-person appointment.

Our world now is a new world. And it will be new again tomorrow. Let’s move into it bravely together and make it good. And let’s find the joy in the change.

With that, I’ll leave you with Nina Simone’s Feeling Good. When Nina sings, she sings hope and she sings “Yes!” And whether we’ve embraced change or it’s something we know we’d like to free ourselves to be able to do, we all can benefit from a little more hope, and we all can benefit from a little more “yes.”

Scoga Nidra. Scott Moore’s new book, “Practical Yoga Nidra” may be the invitation you need to find your own best way to practice.

Scott Moore Practical Yoga Nidra

My dear friend Scott Moore has just finished his first book. A friend’s life-dream achievement is a worthy reason to celebrate in and of itself, but also, this book is so full of practical guidance and timeless inspiration that it makes me beyond proud to share his news and his book: Practical Yoga Nidra: A 10-step Method to Reduce Stress, Improve Sleep, and Restore Spirit. It’s now available for pre-order on Amazon.com.

Scott’s a master yoga nidra practitioner and teacher, but what I love about him and his teaching is that he both understands the power of a story and he is a fantastic storyteller. It is through his own stories that he really makes this work and his teaching come alive.

I met Scott about 15 years ago in Salt Lake City. I was training for Ironmans at that time and from all that training and years of not stretching, I was stiff as a splinter and bound to break. I decided I would incorporate yoga into my regimen to help my mind and my body both. I began a quest to find the one yoga class a week around which I would work the rest of my schedule. I went to several studios and tried out teacher after teacher. Most either looked down at my unbending body or bored me to distraction with strict, formulaic sessions. That was until one early morning when I found myself delighted by the welcoming instruction, the funny and thoughtful stories, the poetry (he read Mary Oliver that day), and transcendent clarinet playing (during Shavasana) of Scott Moore. Because of him, I was in. And as I continued to meet him for 6am yoga classes every Thursday, I told him that what I was doing was not yoga, it was Scoga. It was Scoga that I loved.

I invite you to now not just experience Yoga Nidra, but to experience Scoga Nidra. Because this book is his voice. It’s his take. It’s his storytelling. It’s his style. And all these make the treatment of subject matter different than anyone else’s. And all these are, in reality, welcoming invitations to make this experience uniquely your own.

Taking a break from Spirit Release and intrusive energy clearing

For the foreseeable future, I will be taking a break from all Spirit Release work to focus my time and energy on creative projects. While Spirit Release is both beautiful and necessary, it is an eliminative process, not a creative one. I’ve found that when I am very frequently clearing, it is hard to switch gears and bring new, imaginative, and bright things into the world.

Since my interview about Dark Energy with Dana Whitby on the Athena Rising Podcast in May, I have been overwhelmed with requests for clearing. Now is a time when this work is much in demand. To help meet this need more broadly, and to empower others to activate and clear for themselves and others, I am continuing to offer the New Lightbody Activation for Now and Lightbody for Clearing workshops to advanced energy workers. If you are interested in learning more about or scheduling either of these workshops, please do reach out to me.

In the meantime, if you cannot find someone on your own that you trust or feel right about helping you clear intrusive energies, you are welcome to contact me for a referral via my contact form. You do not need to share the details of your experience. I will simply be giving you the name of someone who may be able to assist you.

Thank you.
