"We want to display it, to make it visible,
though even the most visible happiness
can't reveal itself to us until we transform it within.
Nowhere, Beloved, will world be but within us.
Our life passes in transformation.
And the external shrinks into less and less…
A thing that was formerly prayed to, worshipped, knelt before-just as it is, it passes into the invisible world.
Many no longer perceive it, yet miss the chance
to build it inside themselves now, with pillars and statues:    
   greater. --Rilke

The Primordial 5 Elements

(an original oil on kraft paper by Candace)

As I sit down to write to you the clock shows 2:22 2/22, an auspicious moment. In numerology the 2:22 relates to relationship and people in our lives. It is good to have you along this path with me. 

I am now in Denver, Colorado and for the next 2 years will be focusing on becoming a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This medicine is thousands of years old, based on nature and all that I have been teaching thus far and more. With this study our practices and teachings will be stronger, in more detail and reflecting the healing nature of this ancient wisdom.

Looking back on my life from the very beginnings of mixing dirt in an old pickle jar, to saving the trees and lightening bugs, to building houses of straw and earth to save the forests, and even in search of ancient civilizations and digging up the past, it has all linked together to understand nature and our part in it. 


 Over the next 2 years, Periodically between the TCM sessions I will have a one week slot that I will focus on offering workshops for my students abroad.  From Santa Fe to Bisbee, Ashland, Portland, San Juan Island, Colorado and adding more. I will see you soon and we will practice together.

I will also be adding online practice sessions in the near future for private access only with a small fee, in order to honor the sacredness of the practice and not broadcast on the web. More info coming soon.

Private Sessions via Skype are also available. This may include a consult for 5 Element Medicine, Qigong forms, or Yoga practicum designed specifically for your needs. Send inquiries via email to:
