"Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of overcoming of it." - Helen Keller

Hallowed Healer is many things. It's my private practice, through which I offer individual and group healing sessions, training and classes in the holistic healing arts, as well as a variety of transformational rituals and workings. I'm a massage therapist, a writer, and a traditional spiritworker. These threads weave together in the system of healing that I have developed and now teach, which I also call The Hallowed Healer. In this system we work to supplant in our consciousness the Wounded Healer archetype with that of the Hallowed Healer. So, The Hallowed Healer is also a model for living in healthy relationship with our bodies, and an approach to the oft challenging experience of being an embodied human. By engaging and befriending the consciousness that indwells each part of our body, we achieve a blessed wholeness wherein our wisdom and power is united in healing purpose!

May all the worlds within and without be united in healing purpose~
Blessings to you,

"No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it." -Albert Einstein

Hallowed Healing is about Awakening to the wisdom, power, and purpose inherent in all living things -- and recognizing everything in the universe to be a "living thing" that contributes its spirit and intelligence to some system greater than itself. Your hand contributes to your body. The stone contributes to the mountain. The star contributes to the galaxy. The Hallowed Healer sees the web that holds all life in relationship and Aligns the intelligences and forces that comprise the Self with the immense power of the Holy Sum of all creation.


"But I'll tell you what hermits realize. If you go off into a far, far forest and get very quiet, you'll come to understand that you're connected with everything." -Alan Watts

Disconnected, a massage is just a massage. We wring and stretch muscles, and muscles heal. A pill is just a pill, it dissolves and affects only the symptoms we expect to be affected. Connected, we touch the body, and the body touches the mind, the mind touches the soul, the soul touches all of humanity... and outward and inward the healing ripples to the very edge and the very core of all existence. The Hallowed Healer's medicine may be Western or Eastern, magical or mundane, but her potential is Universal.


"It's when we start working together that the real healing takes place... it's when we start spilling our sweat, and not our blood." - David Hume

The Old English hal meant whole and is the source of our modern English word whole as well as heal, holy, hallowed, etc. And so it is to Wholeness that I refer when I speak of Holy Sums and Hallowed Healers. When we leave behind the ache of loneliness and embrace the bliss of wholeness, we are able to Absorb freely the blessings of this abundant world. Fully and constantly nourished we Answer the call to heal and be healed without fear of giving too much or using up some limited power.
