After receiving a Diploma of Acupuncture in Sydney Australia and a Doctor of Oriental Medicine from the Zheijiang Medical Research Institute in Huang Zhou China in 1984, in 1986 I travelled to India. While there, working as an acupuncturist in a multi-disciplinary healing clinic I was introduced to the early work of Peter Mandel. His work in “light therapy” was revolutionary and through the course of several workshops I had the first-hand opportunity to see Colorpuncture’s profound affects in healing issues as different and far reaching as detoxing and clearing early trauma.
By the time I came to the United States in 1992, I had been training personally with Dr. Mandel for nine years in advanced methods of Esogetic Colorpuncture, Energy Emission Analysis and Kirlian Photography. It was clear to me at this point that “light therapy” was an essential component of truly holistic healing, where body, mind and spirit are brought into alignment. In 1992, I co-founded the Institute for Esogetic Colorpuncture, USA.
In addition to my work with Peter Mandel and over 30 years experience in the field of alternative medicine, I am Certified in the Somatic Experiencing/Trauma Resolution work of Peter Levine.
As part of my healing practice, I have dedicated my life to the cultivation of the meditative arts. My spiritual practice is an important influence in my work as a healer and teacher of the methods of Esogetic Medicine. My intention is to create safe learning environments where students can not only acquire the critical skills they need, but also personally experience the healing power of light through Esogetic Medicine.
