    For over 38 years I have practiced on the leading edge of the transformational healing arts, serving as a healer, intuitive guide, mentor and teacher. With CoreIndividuation, I have an exquisite tool to further support my clients in experiencing graceful relief from distress so they can more readily open to the light of who they truly are.

    CoreIndividuation supports me in clearing obstacles and challenges with stunning ease and grace. With elegance and efficiency, the energetic basis behind patterns of imbalance that cause discord in our lives can be readily detected and shifted, restoring access to our greater wholeness.

    My clients report feeling lighter and more expansive, feeling a renewed sense of hope, freedom, greater peace, ease and enhanced well-being… nourished on all levels of their being. With these shifts, they’re able access a higher state of consciousness and more readily realize their greater potential in their work, health and relationships.
    It’s my calling to support people fulfilling their soul’s purpose here. If you are dedicated to serving the greater good and are sincerely ready to restore and uplift your energy so you can make your contribution without compromise or sacrifice, I’m here to support your evolution and success.

    CoreIndividuation is a profound gift that I’m honored to share with you. I warmly invite you to contact me for a complimentary initial conversation to see if our working together is right for you.

    in the healing light of love,

    Thank you so much for your generous support. Helping me to really come back to love again. Also for just the beautiful level of awareness as well as compassionate humanity you have. It is such a profound gift of healing. You’ve been like a guardian angel for me when I most needed it.

    Quiana is a master healer.  She elegantly assists me to make significant shifts in my life, clearing and releasing deep issues I’ve struggled with for as long as I can recall.  She brings in light, ease and grace. I feel more myself than ever before. I highly recommended her and this powerful work!

    Quiana Grace Frost is brilliant in her ability to create a powerful and safe healing container, so that the most vulnerable parts of the self can be revealed and transformed to their full potential. Her assessment skill is profoundly efficient and comprehensive, allowing for swift and graceful results within each session. She helped me crack the code on a lifetime issue that has brought incredible relief to my body, mind and heart. The first session she told me to allow a miracle, and I got one in no time at all. Treat yourself to this gifted healer!

    I feel like a newer version – a lighter version of who I have been. More responsive and less reactionary, more joyful and peaceful. Thank you so very much. My time with you has renewed me and brought me back to life!

    You’re a gem, Quiana! I’m so grateful for our time together. You are a brilliant facilitator, focusing on the positive, expanding me into the light. I feel so inspired as you help me tone and stretch my body, mind and spirit. Plus, you have rhythmic and gentle transitions allowing your influence to resonate for profound shifts. You do profound work! I feel so honored and so seen. Your wisdom is such a gift. Thank you!

      As a transformational business expert, I support creative entrepreneurs, healers, and coaches who realize that their business can only grow as much as they themselves grow.

      Taking on building a business, continuously walking into new territory, brings up things for us that we might not have come up against before and need to be addressed at all levels–mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually –to create sustainable success.

      Many of my clients are sensitives, empaths, and intuitives who have done personal growth work and realize that mindset is important, but by itself not enough. I help you to address the invisible forces that you may experience of feeling guided by limiting beliefs, frustrated, stuck, self-doubting, or chasing your tail in pursuit of your entrepreneurial success by removing these obstacles from your whole being. We partner to up-level your business growth by matching your inner state of being with your desired outer business success.

      I combine 30 years of business and marketing background with a deep level of listening, years of coaching and somatic practices, and CoreIndividuation to help you release any obstacles and to heal your relationship to business, marketing and selling so that everything is in alignment to manifest your personal and business success.

      I invite you to contact me for an initial conversation to see if we are a right fit for each other.

      I am also certified as a teacher of “Illuminated Body”, Your Sacred Anatomy’s foundational class and I lead the two-day intensive several times a year.


      As a solo-preneur who is committed to making a difference in the world, I have learned through experience that one of the highest forms of service I can offer is to take very good care of myself– to tune my instrument, so to speak, on a regular basis.  Britta is a gifted professional who has been an integral part of my support team for several years, and I am grateful all at once for her generosity of spirit and her commitment to her craft.

      From a business and marketing perspective, Britta listens deeply and helps me explore strategies and actions that fit both my objectives and my style.  She brings a wealth of experience, and is both thoughtful and on-target with her guidance.  With Britta’s help I am able to more consistently show up bright & clear in my life and in my work, which means everything to me… and to my clients, too!  Britta is the antidote to the cookie-cutter, one size fits all business coach.

      Through our work together we have resolved in a single session both physical pains and mental / emotional congestion that I would have otherwise spent days & weeks working through – a life saver in terms of reclaimed time, attention and precious life force.  I encourage you: if you are even a little curious about working with someone who can SEE you and help YOU succeed, talk with Britta and explore how she might assist you.  You, your unique expression, and indeed the world will be better for it!

      After my last session with Britta I feel much stronger. I experience increased awareness and a deeper connection to my Self. I have been able to shift my point of view in several areas of my life, both professional and personal with Britta’s support. Due to my sessions with her I feel much more open and spacious; there have been tremendous changes on the inside, which made it possible for me to make changes and decisions in my life that I couldn’t have perceived before. It’s been so much easier to maintain clarity and staying in the positive. I’m deeply grateful for all the support Britta has given me to grow stronger and experience increased inner peace.

        I have been practicing Energy Medicine for more than 23 years on my quest to learn how to facilitate the deepest level of healing that we are capable of. Throughout most of my life I have been clairaudient, clairvoyant and a medium. In my early 20’s I started out working as a rehabilitation therapist specializing in head trauma. I wondered how people could heal from these injuries on all levels-not just their bodies and brains- but their whole being. There was no place for my psychic skills in the western medicine model. Those questions were the initiation into my life long journey as a healer, one who has been guided how to delve into the energetics of our being and to bring more joy and light into the lives every one I touch.

        Over the decades I became certified in many modalities including Quantum Energetics, Sound Healing, Theta Medical Intuitive Healing, Peruvian Shamanism and Contemporary Shamanism. When I became a Certified CoreIndividuation™ Practitioner in 2014, I began to understand how powerful this work is, as I witnessed my own changes. Finally, I could step out confidently and fully embodied as teacher and practitioner . I could own my own depth and clarity, free from the wounds I had carried .

        CI is a comprehensive, powerful and transformative healing modality. I have seen more success and faster results with CI than any other modality that I have studied in 25 years! I have developed a profound understanding and appreciation of how exquisitely refined the Sacred Anatomy is in each of us.

        The work of CI elegantly and gracefully clears life patterns, karmic wounds and old issues that hinder us from becoming our most brilliant selves. It also repairs the damage from trauma that is stored in our Sacred Anatomy and realigns our structure so that we can show up more fully. It allows us to step into our natural state of divinity while embodying our highest potential.

        Since my work with Michaela, I have experienced breakthrough moments in my every day life! Michaela has helped me
        re-solve situations that used to run the show. Now, I am functioning fully in my personal power and am able to recognize and take Action in alignment with my truer destination. My life is changed!
        Michaela McGivern + Core Individuation = FREEDOM

        I have had the great fortune to work with Michaela during times of devastating emotional pain and loss.

        Her loving wisdom created a safe place for me to explore and release life long patterns that continually attracted unhealthy situations in my life. Michaela’s keen intuition allows the use of many amazing healing modalities including Core Individuation.

        I now have many practical tools to employ though my daily spiritual journey of living and healing. I look forward to continuing my work with Michaela as a gifted healer.

        Michaela McGivern has worked on me on several occasions when I was much in need of clearing out some old debris, unwanted hangers-on, emotional velcro and that sort of thing. Each time, I went to her filled with fatigue and depression from this onslaught of negativity that unknowingly came into my body. She worked her magic and I was able to reclaim my own space, kick out the unwanted (and often unknown) “body snatchers” and restore my generally good-hearted and smiling nature.

        It wasn’t easy. She worked on each aspect until it was clear, which sometimes took quite awhile. One is in such a trusting position to let a practitioner delve into your personal inner space…and I feel completely as ease with Michaela. I’ve recommended her numerous times and will continue to do so.

        It’s like having Glenda the Good Witch come and tap you on the head with her magic wand and make all the flying monkeys go away!

          Facilitating your relationship with your greater authentic being.

          Yes, you carry a big load, and I can partner with you to ease your transition into greater success, clarity and energy.

          My specialty is working with people that are interested in putting the pieces of their life together and clearing their past issues away for success.  I am here to clarify and propel you into expressing your fullest expression and purpose on the planet.  I can:

          • Bring you a freedom from the tyranny of your own negative thoughts and misguided beliefs.
          • Help you release the trauma and patterns holding you back from achieving your goals and dreams.
          • Support you in bringing your “A Game” without burning out.


          In my ongoing quest to study the connection between quantum physics, quantum biology and the nature of reality, I have been a student of the healing power of subtle energy for 20 years. I have also been transformed by my involvement with CoreIndividuation™ since I first picked up the book Your Sacred Anatomy in 2014. I experienced this work as an innovative and powerful approach to my own healing and evolution as it has helped remove the limiting patterns and allowed me to move powerfully into fulfilling my life and soul’s purpose.

          As a best selling author of Girlfriend on the Rocks, I chronicled my mountain climbing adventures that ended with a life-threatening fall down a glacier, dramatic rescue and miraculous recovery. I can now see how this painful event was the first step for me on a journey to satisfying my soul’s mission.

          Let me facilitate your soul’s growth and evolution to help you achieve your goals and clarify your life’s purpose. As we release you from repeating old patterns and unveil a more authentic you to usher in a new era of success, health, and happiness in your life.

            As an empathic intuitive, I can see that you’ve been called here to do big work. Being seen for who you really are is fundamental to discovering and claiming the work you are here to do. Your unique Soul Purpose. Your evolutionary genius.

            It may be hard for you to imagine the magnificence and power that you truly are… given you’ve been required to stay small in this chaotic de-sensitized world where most can’t imagine their brilliance.

            Your journey may have been challenging so far, and required courage and tenacity to move past the challenges. And to move into your most magnificent and impactful work, you will still need courage and persistence. But it doesn’t have to be the same.

            You can now move into your intended manifestation with direction, focus, grace, ease and abundance. It is truly possible. We now know how to do this differently. All the spiritual and technological advances can help you navigate the way forward.

            As an international coach, mentor and healer, I will inspire you to live into the truth of who you are, so you can express yourself more powerfully in the world. I will guide you to aim toward your truth by rediscovering and claiming your magnificence. My work in CoreIndividuation™ and other modalities will help you align with that truth by letting go of what no longer serves you, and support you to commit to acting on that truth in everything you think, say or do in order to amplify your energetic aliveness. In that, you increase the meaning and impact in your life by taking small courageous steps into your abundant potential.

            I often work with visionary entrepreneurs and innovators who want to create more meaning, have more abundance, and create sustainable impact by uncovering their purpose and aligning their vision, products, organization culture and systems design.

            I am a transformational coach, consultant and mentor and have been guiding people into purposeful lives for 35 years. I’m also a serial intra- and entrepreneur, having built and scaled multiple businesses (including four of my own). I bring an academic background in human development-related product development, design and testing, and as an executive and consultant I’ve created or reorganized systems and infrastructure for dozens of businesses, using rigorous purpose-related and developmental stages to focus and streamline product development and delivery to scale and maximize meaning and profits.

            I earned my PhD in Human & Organizational Development, and hold Certifications as an Integral Master Coach™, Purpose Guide™, Professional Mediator and Facilitator, and a CoreIndividuation™ Energy Practitioner. I use these capacities and other credentials in transformational and entrepreneurial arenas to help you become a more purposeful change-maker and leader, create purpose-aligned products and build a purpose-driven business.

            “Work with Holly benefited every sphere of my life – relationships,   work life, and how I see myself. Plus creating my new business. I have more impact now than ever before. Holly masterfully creates a trusting container for deep work. She is empathic, loving, understanding and shows an unparalleled support. Holly opened some important doors for me and guided me with the exact steps I needed to take to enter through those doors at my own pace.”

            “For the first time in years I feel creatively inspired and excited about life. This work has really woken me up. My creative blocks are virtually gone! I’ve opened the doors to true love. I’m no longer willing to hide. Holly is insightful, highly intuitive, delightful to work with, funny, strong, and a real loving soul. I love that she held me accountable, yet supported me through some seriously rough patches. If you are ready to wake up and start living your true purpose, I highly recommend Holly. If you prefer to live in delusion, choking on your mind, then I would run for the hills.”

            “I’m relating to life from a soulful and purposeful place- it’s like having saturated color in a world that could often appear drab. I feel a freer expression of joy and love, curiosity, experimenting, the deep trust and feeling of home. Holly helped open me to a whole different way of being in the world, with a whole other world of gifts, capacities, and insights.”

              Anais Nin said “and the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” For many this isn’t an easy undertaking to do alone. As a CoreIndividuation Practitioner I am able to use Desda Zuckerman’s mapping of our Sacred Anatomy to work in partnership with clients as life’s journey unfolds toward their empowered self.
              As a CI Practitioner, the partnership with the client has supportive, conscious and purposeful pre-operative and post-operative protocols that bring balance and harmony to clients before, during and after surgical procedures.

              Reverend Zehnter performed CI work on me a few days after I experienced severe vertigo. When she saw me, my dizziness had already stopped due to medical intervention, but my mind was still reeling from having experienced such a traumatic event and my body was still trying to cope with all the medication I had received to treat my symptoms. During my CI session, I feel as though Reverend Zehnter was able to use her work to align the medical treatment I received with my body’s natural healing ability, resulting in a recovery process that was more fine-tuned to my specific needs.

              Since our second session I am doing well. Some challenging opportunities presented themselves for me to stand up and put myself first instead of setting myself aside to accommodate others.
              Also, after our session, my very painful low back issues were alleviated to a great degree and I have continued to recover and get stronger every day. I guess my mobility is returning on many levels!
              Isn’t that great!

              I felt a definite release of old time resentments towards my siblings. It has been easier to accept them for who they are and not set expectations that will then be unsatisfied. I have recommended that my husband and friends to take the opportunity to work with Kate.

                I found this body of work through receiving its benefits in sessions, buying the book and finally taking the plunge into the Practitioner Trainings. Having experienced the connection to energetic realms in nature as a child, this work came naturally to me. This is the sole body of healing work I have actively studied and I utilize what I have in my knowingness to come forth in my work as a Practitioner. I believe it found me.

                Being a fine artist, I like to use as much color and texture as possible in a session. Every time a client sits down in the chair, it’s like a blank canvas- an opportunity to build awareness that there is a fresh story, more possibility and magic right at their fingertips. Core Individuation is about working together, from that empowered place within and it is my honor to hold the space for fellow man/woman to come into their own. My approach is to calm the chatter and to allow the truth to surface in a manner that hits home for each individual. This work is a lot about homecomings. It’s about breaking out as well. And finding that you don’t have to do any of it alone- that’s the icing on the cake.

                  My specialty is working with people that are in the business of transformation. You might be a thought leader, a change-maker, a visionary healer, an established author/speaker, or disruptive entrepreneur. You carry a big vision, message, and purpose. Yet your path comes with unique demands for accelerated growth. Through CoreIndividuation, we can strengthen your inner capacity for overcoming challenges with grace, and address the invisible forces that stand in the way of playing on an even bigger stage. Few people really get or understand your unique world. I just might.

                  For more than 15 years, I have advised leaders from top organizations including Facebook, Google, Genentech, NASA, and Greenpeace. I am a two-time TEDx speaker, and a global expert on storytelling and communicating innovation. I speak on stages in front of thousands of people and teach at business schools around the world. I have been blessed to be a student of CoreIndividuation for over a decade - and consider this work a foundation stone my own growth and evolution. With the support of CI, I have overcome many challenging times including divorce, multiple start-up failures, and healing from chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and lyme disease. It's with deep gratitude that I serve CI clients as a mentor in their own accelerated growth. I am also initiated as a teacher of CoreIndividuation, leading the Illuminated Body two-day intensive several times a year. I might be a good match as your CI practitioner if you seek someone with great empathy, who can guide you in translating your biggest visions into tangible reality. Email me if you'd like to schedule a session, I usually book 2 months out in advance.

                  Michael has so much care, compassion, and sensitivity that just spending an hour in his presence can be very healing. Combining Michael’s natural abilities with this very powerful modality makes for a transformative experience! CI provides this framework and is truly a unique exploration into one’s self. I’m not sure how it works….but it does. Check it out, remain open-minded, and allow yourself to feel the difference this work can make!

                    Level I Practitioner since 2014

                    I am a certified Core Individuation practitioner, and this work thrills me to my core!  My purpose on the planet is to be a healer and a bringer of the light. I do this in three ways:  education, healing work, and authentic joyful beingness. In addition to CI, I have a Masters in Counseling Psychology, and I am certified in Hakomi mindfulness-based, body centered psychotherapy, Polarity Therapy, and Sound, Voice and Music healing. I am also a Reiki Master and teacher, and I have taught internationally. I have had a private practice since 2001, and I have helped thousands of people find authentic peace and power.

                    I specialize in helping women recover from trauma, and create authentic lives of passion power peace and purpose! If you are ready for true transformation and freedom, you have come to the right place! I can help, because the world needs you: a free, empowered and joyful you!

                    Here are some of the Trauma experiences I have helped women triumph over:  (profound loss / witnessing or experiencing domestic violence in childhood or adulthood /physical, emotional, psychological or sexual abuse in childhood or adulthood / powerful childhood negative conditioning / death of a loved one / assault / affairs and divorce / painful or absent relationship with mother / painful or absent relationship with father / resentment toward a sibling / adoption as a child / miscarriage, fertility and motherhood issues / “not being seen,”/lack of life purpose / chronic pain / and so much more ....)

                    Also, I LOVE doing energy healing on companion animals of all sizes, and have found it to be very effective in releasing trauma, treating illness or injury, and speeding post operative recovery. I am passionate about animal welfare and rescue, and a portion of my profits goes to support this cause.

                    Core individuation inspires me because it is SO very precise and effective, and always leads to transformation! I see it as the most specific and potent energy healing modality I have ever encountered. I believe that power, compassion and joy comprise our natural state if being, and I am committed to empowering people to live powerfully and authentically in ways that help them to express their unique gifts in our world. I also see CoreIndividuation as a path of awakening, with the potential to uplift human consciousness to a place of creating harmony in our social and ecological relationships -- we are awakening the world one healing at a time!

                    I would love to support you, and your loved ones, in an incredible journey of healing and awakening!

                    When I first came to see Samantha, I was in some considerable discomfort and limited functioning after the death of my mother and the end of a relationship. I had sought her out for sessions just so I could sleep at night. The CI work she did, and its effects, were much more profound than I could have ever imagined. Samantha is one of the very rare healers anywhere who offers a combination of solid intellectual and theoretical grounding along with a divine gift of energetic healing and intuitive insight. Her work is at once nurturing and soothing, as well as powerfully dynamic and affecting, bringing about real change. She is able to bring keen intuitive awareness to her work, gently but precisely using her wealth of tools and gifts to very quickly zero in on stuck places and free the energy. The result for me is an experience of joy and freedom. We have also recently used CI work to help my dog stabilize from neurotoxic drug exposure and seizures. His seizures have stopped, and he seems much lighter.

                    Samantha is a beautiful and positive spirit who has an incredible gift to offer others: the ability to intuitively and thoughtfully help you heal, understand, and tap into your own energy field. I have worked with Samantha as a Core Individuation client, and I always leave feeling rejuvenated, inspired, and energized. I specifically asked for her assistance in helping to identify my purpose which was educational and transformative. We used CI techniques to clear my energy structure, remove signatures, and empower me to know and live into my sense of purpose. She has the unique talent to allow your energy to flow uninhibited and does so in a very comfortable, calming manner. Her knowledge of the body’s sacred energy force is impressive, as is her passion for helping others. I highly recommend her services for anyone looking to heal, understand their life’s purpose, and to feel beautiful and amazing from the inside out!

                    Samantha is a truly gifted and unique healer. She is humble, effective, and highly accurate. I respect her expertise and professionalism greatly, as it provides a safe and grounded container for TRUE TRANSFORMATION and personal growth. I recommend her highly and I refer clients to her regularly. Samantha offers her own blend of healing including Psychotherapy, Reiki and Core Individuation, that encompasses the physical, the emotional, and all octaves of the spiritual dimensions. Her approach is truly INTEGRAL, addressing all the levels of human experience. Samantha is one of the most gifted healers I have ever met. She has a highly refined capacity in the realm of subtle energy, and a very special connection to the spiritual dimension that allows profound and holistic shifts of consciousness to happen spontaneously. I have received her work many times, and most recently her CI work, and it has always had a profound result in enhancing clarity, power and providing deep healing on every level of my being.

                      I have been a spiritual explorer for almost 50 years. I began my journey studying with Jack Schwarz in 1972. Jack was a well-respected practitioner of nontraditional methods of health and healing and the author of a variety of books including “The human Energy Systems”. I was fortunate to travel with him in 1972 throughout Mexico, visiting a variety of pyramids and ancient ruins. The following year we went to Greece and Egypt where we climbed to the top of the Great Pyramid.
                      Adding to my medicine bag of healing modalities I learned AmaDeus, the 6000 year old healing practice of the Guarani tribe of South America. I am a practitioner and instructor in this heart based modality. In 2001 I lived in Guatemala, studying Mayan healing traditions. I spent 7 years studying with Tata Pedro Cruz, learning the traditional Tzutujil fire ceremony. I also lived with Vincenta Gonzales Navicoch and her family in San Pedro, Lake Atitlan where I was trained to be a healer in her tradition.
                      Here in the US I now practice and teach the Mayan soul retrieval ceremonies I learned from Vicenta.
                      Presently I am a practitioner in CoreIndividuation as taught by Desda Zuckerman. The principles, methods, procedures and techniques of CoreIndividuation have greatly enhanced my existing skills. I am grateful to be a part of the C.I. Community, and am dedicated in my practice to the growth and expansion of my client’s well-being

                      In the last few months, Dexter Leland’s work with the CoreIndividuation system has brought invaluable benefits to myself, my husband, other family members, and several of my own holistic wellness clients. I highly recommend his work to anybody who is seriously involved in energetic, emotional, mental or physical healing.

                      Dexter offers skill, intuition and compassion at its best. Clearly, his experiences with the techniques are rapidly growing, giving his clients increasing depth of healing and awareness of their energy structures. Dexter’s natural capacity to get in tune with others allows him to guide the process exactly where it needs to go. And like all true healers, he gently but surely involves everyone in his or her own path to health

                        I started out earning a degree in Psychology and Elementary Education
                        degree from SUNY Stony Brook in 1974. I then went on to get her Occupational
                        Therapy degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1977. I worked for many
                        years in traditional settings such as school systems, hospitals and out patient
                        clinics. Working with neonates to 99 year olds in the areas of both
                        biomechanical and neurological dysfunction became her interest at first. I have
                        expanded into working with individual nutritional needs and physiological detox. I
                        look at the whole individual and what is affecting their progress toward health.

                        In my own journey I found that traditional methods were limiting. My own health
                        issues, including back pain and women's health issues led me on a search for
                        other solutions. Integrative Manual Therapy is one of myprimary tools. I
                        studied and I am Certified IMT,C. therapist for the last 20 years. This therapy has
                        helped me heal tissues and prevent surgery. Always looking for more answers
                        has been my quest. Adding other practices such as Cranial sacral Therapy,
                        Process Acupressure, Zero Balancing and Myofascial Release has helped my
                        own growth and development, as well as my clients’ healing process. A Nutrition
                        degree has also enhanced my practice and speeds up the clients healing with
                        individualized supplement programs.

                        When I had been introduced to CoreIndividuation and immediately knew that this
                        was a deeper way of helping my clients heal. Over my years of working with
                        people and the body I have learned that we are not just a physical body. Our
                        physical issues may be due to emotional trauma and our environment. CI helps
                        us release these traumas without reliving the trauma. It is a beautiful and
                        intricate as our physical body. It helps align the body and move us from pain and
                        discomfort to healing and beyond.

                        My strength is that I can determine what each person needs for their healing.
                        Through my years of working with the body I can feel what is beneficial for
                        ones healing. I listen to the body and my techniques are gentle and allows
                        the body and whole person move towards alignment.

                        Healthy, non-invasive techniques are the goal for treating anything that takes us
                        out of homeostasis. My goal is to keep searching, growing and going deeper
                        into the healing arts and sciences. Helping my clients heal and come back to a
                        more flexible and vibrant state of health is my passion.
                        Please contact me. I would love to be part of your healing journey.

                          I have been studying consciousness transformation for nearly 25 years. My graduate studies and my personal experiences have focused on how to support spiritual emergence for you and your loved one. I spent the decade of my twenties in a monastic environment and I also have a graduate degree focusing on spiritual emergency and chronic illness as paths of transformation. Through presence, clarity and hands-on healing, I facilitate individuals to be more awake to themselves. I offer a fountain where neuroscience, psychology, biology, movement, energy medicine and spirituality meet.

                          What do I love about this work? Seeing people come home to themselves in aliveness, beauty, joy and light. It never ceases to amaze me the wonder and delight inherent in the uniqueness of each person. As a keeper of the light, I am committed to guiding clients in fully awakening to their full authentic presence. Part of this is facilitating the ushering of their gifts to this world.
                          I am best in seeing the big picture as well as bringing the details needed to witness gently, firmly and compassionately the journey unfolding with all its wild tender rides.

                          I just started a wonderful treatment with Kathrina.
                          I had been feeling like my frontal lobe is coming down, but now feel whatever was shading is cleared.
                          Like right after a good yoga work- feels like whole of my brain cells did yoga and are refreshed and serene.

                          Kathrina is an extraordinary health practitioner and a gifted natural healer. My CI work with her not only addressed long standing issues in a holistic and effective way, but the work continues to unfold and be relevant these many months later. I found that CI addressed challenges I have been working on for a very long time in an integrative and effective way. I feel tremendous space around the limitations that I have experienced in the past and great hope in creating my future. Kathrina is the Labron James of the healing world and we are all blessed to get to work with her.

                          I saw Kathrina Peterson for some work around my mood and some fears around money and my work.
                          Immediately after my two sessions with her, I felt much lighter and less burdened. This feeling has stayed with me but what is amazing is what has occurred around my business. I have had the best two months of my career and there is no other explanation than the shift in my energy and view around it. I have no doubt that the work Kathrina did has given me the clarity and lightness to emerge from a funk that I had been in for a very long time.

                            Practitioner since 2014, will work remotely by phone and Skype

                            I have been a Core Individuation Practitioner since completing my training in August 2014. I came to this work after my own journey of healing inspired an abiding interest to learn more about the arts of healing, self care and personal growth. As a practitioner my aim is to support my clients to step away from beliefs of brokenness, isolation and the patterns that limit our lives. To see the wholeness of who they are as beings and the possibilities of self-acceptance, love, compassion and unlimited potential we all carry. Through this work I have seen and experienced great healing and transformation from the constructs of "who we think we are" to the expression and divine grace of our human potential. I offer you the sum total of who I am, my skills as an intuitive, healer, earth worker and facilitator of sacred ceremony. My training and experience in CoreIndividuation, Red Tent ceremony facilitation, trauma & survivor support, medicinal herbal medicine, nutrition and body wellness, Himalayan Tantra, and Somatic Experience techniques, offer a unique blend to anyone seeking to build skills and improve their ability to function, experience and live a more vibrant, full life.

                            My practice, Healing with wholeness, focuses on addressing:
                            Feelings of separateness & isolation, anxiety and stress patterns, accident recovery, feelings of shame, jealousy, not belonging & loneliness, desire to have a deeper relationship with self, lack of boundaries & codependency in relationships, underlying issues of disease & illness, signatures of trauma & residual trauma patterns held in the body, learning greater embodiment, feeling stuck/stagnant in life, symptoms of abuse, trauma, & low self-esteem, depression & emotional numbness, and rebuilding internal support & replenishment.

                            I also offer:
                            Energetic support for surgeries and other medical procedures
                            Emotional wisdom school techniques and classes
                            Personalized self care strategy - developed to meet your needs & lifestyle

                            Nicole’s gracious ability to both heal and teach is what has made my experiences with her CI sessions so effecting. Nicole worked intuitively with me and at the same time explained clearly what she was doing, and what everything meant. As a beginner to CI this made my experience so welcoming.

                            I am deeply thankful to have Nicole Crouch Diaz as my CI practitioner. She is clear, insightful, and genuine in her excitement to guide me through emotional obstacles and help me to thrive. While always ethical and professional, her warmth creates an atmosphere of support that is ideal for working through personal challenges. Thank you so much, Nicole!

                              Hi there! I am an artist, activist, soul guide, modern day mystic and proud mountain lion mama to a trans son. I specialize in facilitating liberation and leadership for artists and activists, helping you move what’s in the way so you can have maximum positive impact and thrive in the process. Getting out of your own way...that sure sounds good doesn't it!

                              You have big work to do, now, not in the next ice age. And still sometimes you feel lost, confused, in pain, blocked, burnt out, stuck, or just plain fed up of the old and tired wounds, life patterns or you-don't-even-know-what things anymore that are holding you back. Yeah, I hear you, enough already!

                              Working at the intersection of full creative expression, deep connection and sacred activism, I create not just safe spaces but brave spaces, where together we can do the deep and evolutionary work to empower your life, work and vision with ease and grace.

                              I adore my clients and client base. You are a bold, brave and rather brilliant bunch. You feel the pull to heal, grow, transform, evolve and serve from a fully alive place. You are wonderfully eclectic, fiercely independent and often solo agents, while some of you are doing great work within the likes of the BBC, United Nations and ILM Visual Effects. Mostly you are happiest off somewhere wild and remote in nature, performing on stage, advancing a cause or creating in your magic cave. Above all, you know there is so much more to life than meets the mainstream eye, and are excited by the possibility of a freedom and fullness of living way beyond your current status quo.

                              For the past 22 years I have been exploring and training in ancient wisdom teachings, sacred lineages, advanced energy work and alternative pathways to healing, transformation and evolution. My medicine basket is big, beautiful and full. Finding CoreIndividuation has been the proverbial icing on the cake, allowing me to finally take my life and work to a whole new level with extraordinary speed. The intelligence, elegance, depth and power of this work absolutely tickles me pink, and if we are a good fit for each other, I know it will amaze and delight you too.

                              If you are feeling a heart-body-soul pull, I recommend tea and a chat, so we can explore the possibility of working together. Mad hats and cookies entirely optional.

                              “It is hard to imagine my life before and without the work with Amanda, sitting here today. I have a new way of relating to myself, nature, people and energy. I feel greater love, containment, wonder. In particular, I feel a greater connection to a non-rational, non-logical spiritual side of me. I fundamentally feel more grounded and more centered, as well as more in touch with magic and wonder.

                              I have positively surprised myself by, far more quickly than I could have ever imagined (at all!), allowing myself to trust in the methodology even in its more ‘out there’ moments. I’ve left the doubt and cynicism behind and I have been able to benefit from the connections and being guided to shift and access energy.

                              I very much enjoy the structure and the flow of the work, even as it allows for flexibility. I feel a sense of purpose and vision about where we are going that I never felt when I was in therapy.

                                As a child, my whole and sacred self was understood in the woods. I’ve dedicated my whole and sacred self-teaching for 40 years in the swirling energy world of Qigong-TaiChi. Teaching this self-care discipline has been useful to hundreds, yet I’ve known is not enough to live life full on.

                                As a healer, a Practitioner of CoreIndividuation, I can assist people to break thru painful limitations and choose a path of higher ground. As a CI Practitioner, I hold the physical and energetic as one intelligent consciousness that can be accessed. Our process with clients is participatory. Together we can release or lighten current difficulties and establish a higher level of life function and life purpose.

                                You are welcome to a complimentary ten-minute exploratory chat to experience how we might work together, either by phone or at my office in Santa Rosa.


                                Going through intensive chemotherapy for leukemia look a big toll on body and soul. This 2nd round of treatment was less awful because Weegi released my trauma and pain DAILY and filled me with healthy light keeping my energy up. She is a light in the dark

                                  Level I Practitioner since 2014

                                  I have been working as a practitioner of barefoot shiatsu massage since 1986 and biodynamic cranial sacral work since 2000. I am a musician, a mime, and an Orff music teacher for children. I have been practicing yoga since 1972 and chi gung since 1990. All of these practices have contributed to my curiosity about and understanding of energy and how it moves us.
                                  Meeting Desda and discovering CI felt like a homecoming for my soul. Her explanation of our energetic anatomy felt immediately true to me, and I as I studied, I experienced an awakening to my greater energetic being that I had previously only glimpsed. I began eagerly practicing everything I learned as I deepened my studies with Desda, and I have been amazed at the transformation I have experienced through this work. My scoliosis has dramatically decreased. My ability to love myself and hold those around me with greater compassion has significantly increased. My daughter, who is quite the skeptic when it comes to energy work asked to experience a CI session, since she has seen such a transformation in me since I have been practicing.
                                  This process of assisting others in clearing the layers of clouds that obscure our divine essence feels like my true calling, and I am honored to be able to offer this work as a CI Practitioner.

                                  Can you visualize a wave of lavender washing through you?
                                  Can you hear the “silver laughter of sprites”?
                                  Can you feel a wave of energy surging up through your soles?
                                  And most importantly, are you ready to let go of old animosities?
                                  Particularly the ones you “love to hate”?
                                  If so, then you may discover a powerful connection with Jeannie McKenzie’s healing work.
                                  In pairing with Jeannie, I experienced a subtle but significant clearing of the physical and psychic “load” that had left me feeling exhausted and “beat up” by some of my colleagues. Most importantly, I was able to recognize and accept a long line of “thin-lipped” female ancestors who were not precisely the archetypal “nurturing mothers”.
                                  I experienced Jeannie’s images and suggestions as simultaneously grounded and practical while being poetic and uplifting. When re-encountering the same insensitive colleagues, I was able to let their negativity run off me without touching my core.
                                  Jeannie has been developing a true gift, one that supports us in walking through our daily lives with less turbulence – a marvelous thing all around!

                                  Desda, your book and work is amazingly powerful. I just had work done by one of your students/graduates, Jeannie Mckenzie. Wow. That really sums up how much better I feel, how much taller I am standing, how clear I feel. Thank you for sharing this important and life saving work with the world.

                                    Health and wellness are the primary focus of my practice. I will help you discover the healing qualities inherent in your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects through the use of the most advanced tools available in the holistic community today. In a consultation, we will uncover a detailed assessment of the overall state of your health.
                                    My therapeutic plan includes Core Individuation, specific diet, nutrition, and exercise programs, lifestyle changes, and nutritional and natural medicinal supplements designed to bring your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects into greater balance and harmony.

                                    As a certified Holistic Health Practitioner through the American Association of Drugless Practitioners, and a certified CI Practitioner, a wellness program designed specifically for you and your body type can be provided. Since 1999 I have developed a personalized, integrated, holistic approach to health. Together we will address your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual issues which keep you in a state of dis-ease. Understanding this type of healing relationship greatly enhances the healing process and allows a more powerful healing experience.

                                    The body has an amazing ability to heal itself when it is allowed to rest and as your holistic practitioner and teacher of health and holism, we will look to the cause of the imbalance and not just treat your symptoms. Together we will come to an understanding of how to live as nature intended – healthy, happy, and confident.

                                    I feel very at peace and as though there has been a resolution of matters with my mother. I am not in any pain, but my ankles are stiff and tender. Life is pleasant and easy. Thanks so much to you, Dear One.

                                    I am finding a harmony and balance now…I am finding me. Things are continuing to shift and sort and the depression is gone.
                                    Thank you so much for all of your time and care and love. I’m feeling much better and feel my body moving forwards.
                                    My heart opened again too and breathing into all that is happening 🙂
                                    Love you

                                    I had the most incredible experience with Karen the other day. For almost 5 months I’ve had lots of pain and inflammation in my hands without being able to figure out the cause. Karen began to use her new technique on them to determine and remove that which was causing the pain. I had never had any sort of treatment like it done before and as I lay there I just thought, “I know I need to believe in the process but I don’t know what this is and even if it does, will it last?’’ When she had me move my hand and check where the pain had been it was totally gone! The swelling was rapidly decreasing. I couldn’t believe it and I wept with joy because a part of me knew this was healing so much more than just that pain. The pain has stayed away since that day and the ones that we have yet to attend to are calling to be released now and I can’t wait to see her again.
