I woke up this morning at year’s end, reflecting on my work in 2018. It’s been a very good year for me in so many ways, and I want to share that with you.
- I’ve really come into my own doing the advanced integrative bodywork that I love, and of course there’s always more to learn with each person who comes in.
- I’ve done more sessions with more people than in previous years.
- I started working with a business coach this year, and I am very grateful for that. I’ve learned a lot.
- I’ve continued training in craniosacral therapy, biodynamics, and Zero Balancing, deepening and integrating those skills.
- Treating TMJ tension and pain has become a satisfying mainstay of my practice, ranging from the free 30-minute consultation to the 5-sessions-in-4-weeks program to my Facebook group Word of Mouth, as well as seeking and cultivating referral partners.
- My new Heavenly Head Massage service is getting a lot of traction.
- I feel very settled and at home in my office in West Lake Hills and happy to be working with the practitioners who share our suite.
- I’ve enjoyed feeding the birds on the hillside outside my office as well as arranging rocks just so.
I don’t know what 2019 will deliver, of course, but I have some plans:
- I’ll be taking a course in TMJ mastery from a teacher in Canada who’s been doing TMJ and vocal cord work for over 20 years. He hasn’t posted the dates and locations for his 2019 trainings yet, but trading some of Austin’s summer heat for some Canadian cool would be nice!
- I’m taking another craniosacral therapy course from the Upledger Institute in May, SomatoEmotional Release 2 here in Austin, and I’m working on getting certified in craniosacral therapy techniques. I’ll continue to attend study groups and work with a mentor, and I will serve as a teaching assistant for CST1 in Austin next August. I feel other Upledger courses calling me — the brain, cranial nerves, pediatrics, the inner physician, and more.
- I’m starting to work on certification in Zero Balancing. I plan to continue to attend study groups, advancing skills days, and taking classes, and I hope to attend founder Fritz Smith’s 90th birthday in May near Palm Springs, CA. If the class Freely Movable Joints is offered in Texas in 2019, I want to be in it.
- I plan to learn how to make good videos for my website, Facebook page, and Facebook group.
- I don’t have any classes in mind yet for biodynamics in 2019, but I plan to continue working on a modeling project with a mentor and trading with fellow practitioners.
May 2019 bring you more of what you want in life — health, happiness, abundance, love, opportunity, connection, peace of mind, and satisfaction. Thank you for your presence in my life!
