It’s finally here. We couldn’t wait to say goodbye to 2020. Now what?
Gail Larsen shares her current reflections, which she can’t announce in advance, because if 2021 is about anything, it is about showing up in and to the moment. “What’s real, what’s next?” It is the question we’re all being asked to answer without looking outside ourselves for guidance or approval. What new story might we (as essentially clueless humans) create from a place of trust in the Mystery, the Moment, and our own Medicine? If we’re still here, we are being asked to live it.
It’s finally here. We couldn’t wait to say goodbye to 2020. Now what?
Kelle Vort was born in New Jersey to an atheist mother and agnostic father, where sports was the religion of the family. Fortunately, she took to sports at a young age and went on to become a World Cup level ski jumper. Lyme disease ended her ski career and prompted her to learn about nutrition, many forms of holistic healing, psychology, spirituality and the mind body connection. She is registered and licensed as a Dietitian/Nutritionist and certified in Wholistic Kinesiology, Theta Healing, Noetic Aura Balancing and Laughter Yoga.
Despite experiencing many difficult moments throughout the course of her healing journey, she feels that illness and trauma have been her teachers, leading her to develop deeper levels of compassion, empathy, love, acceptance, and forgiveness of herself and others. She describes parts of her healing journey, including tools, resources and support that have helped her the most. She has recently restarted her nutrition counseling practice.

Jane is a relative newcomer to Santa Fe. She was born in Ohio and lived between the midwest and the east coast. She is a End of Life Doula, PAC consultant, empath, hospice volunteer, cook, gardener, artist, and keen observer of human beings, herself included. Jane’s spiritual beliefs formed over a lifetime in the beautiful, challenging, mundane “trenches” of living interspersed with as many occasions of spiritual, metaphysical studies as she could manage. She took to heart the truth that “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.” but she also thinks that it takes a lot of trying to figure it out to navigate successfully through the lessons of a lifetime. Jane shares some research, some observations, and some conclusions.
Christine Warren has been on the path of Christ consciousness for many years, following healing from a diagnosis of advanced cancer during which she was instructed by an inner voice to ask Jesus for help. Building on many years as a student and teacher of eastern spirituality, quantum physics, and metaphysics, Christine was led to the teachings of Christ consciousness through numerous avenues, many nontraditional, but all profoundly changing her life and healing her mind and heart.
Christine shares her personal journey with Christ’s teachings through the New Testament, the Gnostic gospels, the translated words of Christ from his original Aramaic language–a startling contrast to what appears in the Bible–the Course in Miracles, and finally, the channeled works of Paul Selig, who dictates books from ancient Christ masters. She shares about discovering the living light of Christ shining in all things, and realizing that we have the power to heal and shift the world we see through the vision and light that we bring to it. We shares an experience of seeing all things with the light of the Christ. The illuminating words of Jesus, poetry, Gnostic prayers and a little Irish humor enlightens Christine’s talk. Read more

In his last couple of decades (Not sure I really want to burn this candle much past 90 anyway), Jeff is revisiting a life long dream of living on a sustainable farm, on the river, with a small group of intrepid souls of all ages. Jeff explores the roots of his dream back in the ’60’s and then share the series of expanding events over the past years that have conspired to support him in risking it all as he buys a very run-down farm on the Rio Grande in Velarde, NM. Identifying and clarifying his vision, then summoning the hutzpah to commit to it have inspired him to act like a thirty year old again!
Jeff Hood is a poet, gardener, and adventurer in wild places. He has had more careers than is healthy, but most of them have been great fun and/or great learning. His go-to question, when faced with tough decisions, comes from Sai Baba: “Before you talk, think: Is it necessary? Is it true? Is it kind? Will it hurt anyone? Will it improve upon the silence?”

Saul tells a story based on an outline called “The Best Gift.” This is a fantasy tale based on a true person. Back in 2003, he said to God one day, “I would like to write but I don’t have the time.” He then got stuck in a blizzard in Denver in his RV with 3 feet of snow which closed the interstate, but with full power in the RV. The story he’ll share was given during those following days when he couldn’t leave the mobile home park.
Saul is a retired chiropractor but full-time spiritual healer and speaker at New Thought churches around the country. He has been the guest minister at over 300 churches around the U.S., and has been a healing consultant with the NFL since 2003, working with the Green Bay Packers, the Philadelphia Eagles and now the Kansas City Chiefs. He has been an avid participant in track, weightlifting, karate, and body building. He was a finalist in Mr. Louisiana in 1979.
I’ve had many careers. Little did I know 16 years ago when I had cancer and met the machine that I use, that this work of lymphatic decongestion would become my passion and a mission of love. And in our current pandemic, I’m appreciating the value of what I’ve learned more and more. I recently realized that all the varied careers in my life seem to have uniquely prepared me for this work at this time.
For example, I was a restaurant cook where we made lots of hollandaise sauce, and where I learned how emulsions work. That understanding is easily translated to feeling the various viscosities of emulsion in our lymph as it decongests and flows. Also, I was an environmental sound recordist and musician, so I hear the correlation between different lymph decongestion sounds with what we can feel.
