“Our friends” are just that: Friends. The friends listed below are people I know and trust, or are places I have seen with my own eyes, or are business whose services or products I have personally used. How do I know these people and places, or how have their businesses helped me? Lilias Folan was my first yoga and meditation instructor. Great classes, wonderful person. Kris Wrede (Kismet Potions) taught the aroma therapy section I attended at the Chicago college of Healing Arts, and supplies many of the oils I use. She thoroughly researches the production methods, purity and reputation of the manufacturers of any oils she sells. The people at “Washington Homeopathic Products” did not know they had helped, but their products completely eliminated my need for pain relief measures after hernia surgery. Sacred Acoustics sound techniques are unmatched in the world of brainwave entrainment technology. To say that their material is helpful and a treat to use rather understates the matter. This is “must have” and “go to” material for me! Judy Trafford (at the Singing Wind Studio) introduced me to, and instructed me in Reiki, a tool I am grateful to use each day. Paul Arsenault (Artist, Arsenault Gallery) is a good friend and has provided support, artwork discussion and inspiration for the Native American Medicine classes I have taught. Dr. Mark Plotkin is a new friend. He and the Amazon Conservation Team he supports with his leadership and unswerving efforts is helping to preserve the heart and living spirit of the essential resource that the Amazon forest and it’s native plants and people represents. His work supports us in many ways. Doing the same for his work is only right. Soderquist Photography (Gareth Rockliffe and Jan Soderquist) provided the photo of me used in the “About Me” page and other material now in use or that will be used on this site. ECHO (Educational Concerns For Hunger Organization) has supplied plants I use, useful information and education to me, and a moral, ethical and structural basis for some of the work that I do. “Transformational Techniques” has directly and indirectly provided much of the training for the classes I teach and the work I do. Their training represents a true melding of body, mind and spirit training. Here at Eden’s-Path, we take a great interest in teaching people to bring healing energy to themselves ans to those whose lives they touch. The “Mindfulness Coaching Blog” presents an interesting and informative discussion of this technique of viewing the world. Reiki requires an unbiased view of clients, energy work and health. You can’t enhance wellness when you see nothing amiss! “Mindfulness” trains us to notice things we might otherwise view as irrelevant. I was so impressed with this technique as a useful tool for Reiki practitioners, that an abbreviated study of mindfulness technique is now included in all of our classes. This brings me rather neatly to Reverend Gregory Kehn. Every now and then someone comes along that just surprises you by being nothing more and nothing less than they say they are. No spin, no prodding, no guesswork, kind, with refreshing humility. Reverend Gregory is someone I am pleased to count as a valued friend that I could trust for honest council.
