Certified Archetypal Counselor
Specialist in Sacred Journaling
Professional Writer and Editor
Tel/fax: 845 679-8676
I have more than 10 years’ experience working with Caroline Myss, from the earliest days of her teaching work on Archetypes and Sacred Contracts right up to her recent workshops on Mysticism and Entering the Castle. I have collaborated professionally with Caroline since 1996, when I helped her with editing the manuscripts of her books “Why People Don’t Heal” and “Sacred Contracts.” I also collaborated with her on a deck of popular “Healing Cards” (Hay House), the deck of Archetype Cards now used at CMED, her Journal of Inner Dialogue, and the board version of the Archetypal Wheel, :Sacred Contracts: The Journey.” During the first three years of her CMED Institute, I kept notes of all the workshops and created unique workbooks to help students absorb and digest Caroline’s teachings as they developed. Beyond that, I have been in continual contact with Caroline as her teaching has evolved, so I have a unique perspective on her thinking and the experiences behind the development of her CMED workshops.
As one of only two permanent faculty members at CMED, I have participated in every CMED workshop since its inception in 2003—that’s 27 in all, plus other workshops and gatherings at places such as Omega and The Crossings in Austin, Texas. At Caroline’s request, I developed a course in Sacred Journaling to help guide over 1000 CMED participants through their two-year training to become Certified Archetypal Counselors. Few people understand her teachings on the Archetypes and the Archetypal Wheels as thoroughly as I do, or know better how to cast charts, do readings, and process the insights that result.
In addition to my knowledge of Archetypal charts and journaling, I also teach a series of simple deep breathing techniques, endorsed by Caroline at CMED, that help instill a calm, grounded state of awareness and improve health and longevity. I utilize several healing modalities to help you advance along your spiritual path, offering the following services:
• Archetypal Counseling and readings
• Choosing your archetypes, casting and interpreting charts
• Journaling in conjunction with archetypal work
• Using visual imagery to enhance journaling
• Deep breathing and Medical Qigong
As a professional writer and published author with more than 30 years of experience as a journalist, editor, and book collaborator, I also have a unique ability to help you develop other projects in conjunction with your spiritual work, including:
• Creating book proposals for your own spiritual writing projects
• Developing related games and card decks
• Helping facilitate workshops on a wide range of topics
I live in Woodstock, NY, 90 miles north of New York City. I hold classes at my home, but I do most of my counseling and consulting by phone with e-mail follow-ups.
