For clients and yoga students in Winchester, VA… below is the text of my email notifying of the closing of my bricks and mortar office space and my eventual departure from Winchester to expand.
Dear clients, dear friends:
I hope this wintry holiday season is finding you well.
It has been a little over a year since I opened the doors to my practice and began offering Integrative Energetic Medicine. It has been an amazing year. I have grown so much as a practitioner and a person. I am so humbled and honored that each of you have trusted me with some part of your journey. It is my soul’s deepest satisfaction to watch you leave with brighter eyes.. even if they’re brighter through tears! ;) I know what it has meant to me to really get that being a deeply caring person in a challenging world is not a punishment or a burden, but rather a gift and a skill. When I see you, my clients and friends, begin to find similar acceptance for all the pieces of you, it fills me up with joy and gratitude.
A lot of growth and transformation has been happening in my personal life, too. I have always loved travel. Last Fall, I went to India and it was my first long trip since immersing myself in energy healing. I fell in love with who I am when I travel all over again. For many different reasons, as bittersweet as it is, I feel very deeply that a new stage of my life wants to unfold and it wants to unfold in a more nomadic way of life… out on the open road.
Some of you already know that I have moved out of my house, purchased an RV, and have been staying with friends while I renovate it. As I have moved around several times during this period, I have learned a lot about both the value and weight of possessions, I have also learned a lot about allowing myself to receive the gift of generosity from others. There are many other things I am being shown about myself, others, abundance, and compassion. And the time is now really approaching when I will be moving into the RV and taking my healing practice, and my own journey, on the road.
So, what does this mean for all of you?
Some of you may feel that your time working with me has naturally come to a close. I honor that and am grateful for the time we had together.
For anyone who wishes to keep working with me whether regularly or semi-regularly, I will be closing out my in-office practice Wednesday, January 16th, 2019. This means that this will be the last day I will be seeing clients in-person, in my office.
However, I have been gradually transitioning more of my practice to remote sessions. The connections forged and healing awakened through video chat and phone calls have been so beautiful and still fill me with a deep sense of honor, gratitude, and joy. I hope you will consider continuing our work together, albeit in a slightly different format than you may be used to.
I am in the process of updating my website so it will be easier to purchase/book remote sessions with me. And, as always, any referrals sent my way I consider a great gift and acknowledgment. If they haven’t already, now they can include any friends or family you have that might be interested… anywhere in the world! You can also help me by leaving me a testimonial to include on my website (http://www.wildsacredjourney.com/testimonials/). Truly, this shift for me is about expansion in a world that desperately needs more love and connection.
I look forward to seeing as many of you who want an in-person session as I can before the end of Wednesday, Jan 16th, 2019. I look forward to continuing to work with you and be a part of your journey wherever mine takes me.
I plan to write more in my blog while traveling: http://www.wildsacredjourney.com/travelogue/

Please connect with me there and send anyone you think may be interested to connect with me there as well.
Just like me, my business continues to grow and evolve. I am working on a shorter session offering geared towards those of you who might just want periodic energetic balancing or who may want some support for your energetic system before or after surgery or other medical procedures. Stay tuned for those details. I will be offering one last day-long retreat on Sunday, January 13, details coming shortly. And I will continue exploring other ways that will allow us to continue to connect, grow, and heal together using social media and other, digital meeting places. If you have purchased a package with me, those will always be honored. If you feel called to ask for a referral to another IEM practitioner who is still local to Winchester, I will gladly give you some.
Winchester folks - You have been part of my community in a place where I learned to put down roots. I hope you will think of this not as a goodbye, but rather as an invitation to expand with me. Current remote clients - I look forward to perhaps visiting your area and continuing to work together in the meantime. Together, we can all explore and adventure into new possibilities and wider, deeper, connections. I have no idea where I’m going on this wild, sacred journey… and I’m kind of excited about that!!
With great love and gratitude (and yes, some tears, too),
