Mentors and guides
There is no way for me to express the amount of gratitude and respect I have for this woman (my Mother). I owe her more than is fathomable. She knows exactly how to push my buttons. But I am lucky for this opportunity to push past the veil of my own self absorption to see her beauty, her strength, her frailty, and her unconditional love for me.
Thank you, Mom, for everything. I love you.
Below are an assembly of people who have guided me along my path. Some have websites of their own. Some have passed away. Nonetheless, I thought it important to honor them in this way. Lineage is important. I would like to think I am carrying on their work in a thoughtful, loving way.
Ann was my first bodywork teacher. I studied with her for years and her influence on my practice (Ortho-Bionomy) set the tone for my style of touch and approach. She has a practice (Ortho-Bionomy and Craniosacral) and teaches here in Chicago.
I can only speak highly of these two people. There classes are transformational. They embody good energy.
My two teachers of Sacred Lomi Lomi. I love their connection to their work and to each other as a family. Very heart centered people. Beautiful work.
Studying a Tantric path which follows a strict formula and has a strong lineage has been eye opening. I've taken many of their classes over the years and have found their instructors to be impeccable and consistent. Always new insights.
Pat Sheehan is the nearest Ipsalu instructor in the area at present time. She lives in Indianapolis, IN
My first Tantra Teacher loved and played their music daily and had studied with them in Hawaii. Years later, I was fortunate enough to study with them as well. An amazing couple.
And to view their beautiful Mauii Temple home and retreat center:
Some are dead, some have dissapeared from my life, some still visit and push my buttons whenever they get a chance. I'm grateful for all of them.
I'm grateful to have had so many people in my life that brought me the gifts of wisdom, experience and love. I am especially grateful for the women in my life, who raised and supported me, and with whom I've had the privilege of sharing my life with. It is through their patience, care, attention and example that I have become the man I am today.
