The Shindai Vision

Shindai is growing & with all the healing bursting out of the space it gave me pause to reflect & be grateful for what is developing. The vision of Shindai has always been one of healing & wellness through cooperation & interaction with different high quality healers. I see healing & wellness as a process where each step leads to more awareness & integration. Transformation is more fully realized through interaction with different modalities & practitioners. Different reactions are catalyzed by different modalities of healing & each practitioner has a different way of approaching this change. This cooperation & group intention or Qi, is so powerful.    I am reminded of how powerful group Qi is from an experience I had years ago. I attended a conference where each day we were asked to put aside our limiting beliefs in a unique way. We accomplished three seemingly unbelievable tasks. We broke a wooden arrow with our neck, two people walked together & bent rebar steel with their necks, & we walked, barefoot across a fire bed that was 1000 degrees or more. All seems so crazy! And yet all three of these were accomplished without injury. How? Partly by putting aside the belief that it couldn’t be done & partly by accessing the collective Qi that was created by the group.    Shindai now has an amazing team of healers that can hold space for deep healing & transformation. We are able to offer healing retreats that are completely personalized to your needs. We all work seamlessly together, picking up where another practitioner left off to shift you to...

Esoteric Acupuncture

Take a deep cleansing breath, quiet your mind, drop into your heart, & let the magic happen.  Do you need help allowing the magic? Shifting your energy so that you are in your heart space? Are you trying to release yourself from past negativity, destructive habits, blockages, disharmony, & restriction? Are you searching for a way to open up & let go of emotional & spiritual tension to allow in a harmonious flow of inner love & peace? Are you ready to let go & dissolve your fears?  I would like to tell you about Esoteric Acupuncture. It is a non-traditional form of acupuncture that focuses on spiritual growth and personal evolution. It is a way to open up the deepest energy fields of the heart chakra. Esoteric Acupuncture uses specially designed geometric patterns of needle placement that work on subtle levels of very fine frequencies. They allow sound-light vibrations to enter through the acupuncture points, thus “accelerating the spin of cell molecules and causing the formation of light micro-fibrils within the cells.” The needle patterns allow reorganization of body patterns on every level of our being, from consciousness to the physical body. Mental clarity and vibrant health are experienced as disharmony, disease and disconnection are dispelled. In addition, deeper states of meditation are achieved along with greater emotional calm. When we get caught up in the mundane world we lose connection with ourselves. Or sometimes we get so caught up in ourselves that we cannot make a realistic connection with the outside world. When we are out of touch with our core being we lose the ability to know...

A Truly Grand Opening   The excitement is building at Shindai Acupuncture! Our Grand Opening is just around the corner & I can’t wait to see you all there! It will be a time filled with events that are entertaining & promote good Qi in this new space! Have you heard of a Lion dance? You won’t want to miss this experience!

This may bring out your inner roar in celebration!  We are on Native American soil here in Sedona & as such, we will pay homage to the energy that is around us. Callie Hill & James Riverstone will be offering up a Native American prayer in the Andean tradition & song as a blessing to the new space & as a sign of respect to those that have been here before us.

5 anti-aging tips you can start trying right now to boost your visage!

Skin Therapy  Have you ever thought “My skin needs a therapist?”  That was the title of a recent article I read as I was having a much-coveted beauty day of my own! I think they hit the nail on the head though. It sounds crazy but the catchy punch line has a lot of truth to it. Feelings DO show up on your skin! So while this new idea in Western dermatology of combining skin care with psychiatry (psycho-dermatology…for real) is a revelation that is taking off, those of us on the Eastern side have always known that the mind, body, spirit connection can’t be separated into easy piles. The face is inseparable with the body & our emotions. Think of the Liver line between the eyebrows, the surprise lines on the forehead, the circles under the eyes that relate to the kidneys, or the frown lines that sometimes develop with grief.  Ever get embarrassed & turn bright red? Get frustrated & see the wrinkle increase between the eyes? Been under too much stress & notice your skin looking dull? Or maybe you went through a trying event & later look in the mirror to wonder did that experience suck me dry? Some of this can be explained by the cortisol released during a fight or flight moment. While we need the hormones released in these moments for survival, when cortisol & other stress hormones get pumped out daily & are chronically elevated for months, you start to see that on your face. Both in the brightness of the skin or the increased wrinkles. Cortisol breaks down collagen, triggers inflammation,...
