Philosophy and Comments        

resilience noun
re·sil·ience | \ri-?zil-y?n(t)s \
Definition of resilience
1 : the capability of a strained body to recover its size and shape after deformation caused especially by compressive stress
2 : an ability to recover from or adjust easily to misfortune or change

True wellness is the capacity for resilience. It is the ways in which we engage with the totality of our world experiences, from our homes, to our communities and businesses, to our world.

When we collapse from the 'weight' of the world around us, we have lost our capacity for resilience, and 'disease' sets in.

Together, we create a customized, workable plan for empowering, inspiring, and restoring your capacity for resilience, joy, stability, and nourishment for your whole being.


Simply put, I am a wholistic empath. The services I offer have been birthed from a lifetime journey immersed in the Chiron (wounded healer) mythos. The pathways I have found for my own healing, have become my offerings to you.

I work intimately with my 'Inner Guide Team' to access the interdimensional realms of wisdom, healing, guidance, clarity, clearing, and integration.

If this work resonates with you, I welcome you on the journey.

Profile and Credentials        

Healing is a personal journey. It is not linear, but infused with twists and turns none of us could expect.

I honor the sacred journey of the Individual, integrating clinical applications with therapeutic techniques from various traditional and non-traditional modalities to provide a unique symmetry in wellness.

My clinical experience spans 45 years and is inclusive of Shamanic Facilitation, Classical Homeopathy, Traditional Herbalism, Sound & Vibrational Healing, Advanced REIKI and REIKI training, Gem and Crystal Healing, Aromatherapy, Flower Essence wellness, Advanced Cranial Sacral Therapy, and Reflexology.

In essence, what I offer is advanced intuitive bodywork which assists the individual in dissolving entrenched 'chords' with individuals, events, beliefs, and actions that no longer serve, and resets the entire system - mental, emotional, physical and spiritual - to be able to move forward in a more integrated way.

Shamanic Soul Recovery and Extraction (SRE)        

Shamanic Soul recovery is about regaining the fragments of one's soul energy that have been trapped, lost or stolen either by another person or through a traumatic incident that has occurred in one's life. As a Shamanic Facilitator, I work with energies to assist my clients in taking back control of their lives.

The most pervasive sense of soul loss is an impression that something in our life is missing. Or, we just do not feel quite together like we used to. There is a suspicion of imbalance, or being out of sync with ourselves, and yet, we cannot explain adequately as to why we feel this way.

Shamanism, in the simplest of definitions, is the ability of an individual to move into an altered state and travel the inner dimensions of what we call non-physical reality. This technique is as old as humans have been here on the earth. It is practiiced around the world, and in the last 35 years has been reintroduced into Western civilization. Among indigenous cultures, however, continuous practice as a healing tool has gone on without interruption.

Nearly 25 years ago I was trained by my teacher, Ai Gvhdi Waya, to do this work called SRE (Soul Recovery and Extraction). Extraction work is another shamanic method that dissolves "blocks" from our bodies or the auric field of energy that surrounds each of us. These blocks can affect us physically, as well as mentally, emotionally or spiritually, and with the shaman's expertise can be removed.

These two tools can help an individual achieve a return to health and vitality.

Indicators of soul loss:

* Depression

* Memory loss, especially from your growing up years

* Addictive behavior of any kind

* Codependence

* Obesity/Anorexia

* Inability to release a person or situation

* Being controlled or manipulated by others

* Victim's mentality

Classical Homeopathy        

Homeopathy is a scientific system of medicine that is well over 200 years old, and is based on a law of similars. It has a distinguished record of successfully treating challenges from infections, to menopause, to pediatric concerns, to mental and emotional health issues. The beauty of homeopathy is that it treats the WHOLE person, not a specific disease or illness. In this way, the person can truly heal.

Homeopathy is based on the scientific discovery that a substance, given at extremely high dilution rates, can actually cure without damage or extreme side effects. These substances are given when an individual presents with the same or similar manifestations of illness that directly mirror the symptoms of a full dose or poisoning of the substance. In this way, homeopathy actually supports and nourishes the body's vital life force to actually heal from within, instead of suppress from without via contemporary drug therapies.

A homeopathic initial session takes about 2 hours, and is an indepth interview focused solely on the client. Generally, a remedy is chosen within one week to one month of the initial session, and the client is asked to take this remedy and then to maintain close contact with the homeopath, checking in periodically throughout the upcoming weeks. An evaluation visit is scheduled, and together we assess how the remedy has performed.

In order to provide the highest quality of service, I require my clients commit to a minimum of 6 months of follow -up visits.

As homeopathy is an ongoing process, the most correct remedy for the client may not be identified within the first visit, therefore subsequent visits over 6 week intervals are needed.

Usui, Karuna, and Traditional Shinpiden Reiki & Classes        

Traditional Usui Reiki is an ancient healing art rediscovered about one hundred years ago by Dr. Mikao Usi in Japan. Reiki is the Japanese word for Unversal or Divine Life Energy or Life Force. The use and practice of Reiki healing is widely known to be beneficial in nearly all aspects of healing.

Karuna Reiki has evolved out of Usui and Tibetan Reiki from a desire and a knowingness that there is always something greater waiting to be uncovered. Karuna is a Sanskrit word, and means 'compassionate action', the kind of compassion that comes from an unbounded sea of love, not unlike Kuan Yin, one of the four great Bodihisattvas - or enlightened beings - that watch over the earth.

Through Karuna Reiki, the healing energies increase in frequency and strength. It brings in healing energies that are noticeably stronger and able to more quickly heal a wider range of difficulties than other forms of Reiki. Many experience the energy flowing not just through the body and arms, but all around the outside as well so that it completely surrounds the practitioner on its way to the client.

Karuna Reiki is offered only to Master Teachers of other Reiki disciplines, as the Master Teacher must be ready and prepared to receive the full benefits of this energetic modality. This can only happen if one's energy system has first become conditioned through the use of Reiki Master energies.

Karuna Reiki was developed by William Lee Rand and other highly sensitive and intuitive healers a the International Center for Reiki Training.

Traditional Japanese Reiki, or Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai. This is the original Usui Reiki as taught in Shoden training by the Gakkai based on an energy ranking system Usui Sensei created.

Services are offered for Reiki healing, distance healing, and Reiki classes in Usui, Karuna, and Traditional Japanese Reiki. Students are accepted for Karuna and/or Traditional Japanese training only after working as Usui Reiki Master Teachers for a minimum of two years, or at the discretion of the instructor.

A letter in response to Fear        

November 20, 2016
By Robin Cunningham
Owner, Wholistic Alternatives

People are screaming in their hearts, and out loud, “How Can This Be???!!!”

How this can be is that we, as a species, inhabit two worlds simultaneously. One of fear fueled rage, and one of compassion driven love. How this can be is that somewhere along the way we ALL got complacent. Somewhere, somehow, we separated from Spirit, and from each other.

We are mortified, terrified, grief-stricken, sickened, stunned, paralyzed, angered, disenfranchised, alienated, separated, numb.

Many are the walking wounded from previous disasters and events over the past two decades, and the hits keep coming. Personal losses of property, pets, dear ones. Global losses of lives, cultures, land, resources. National losses of reality, decency, and what we held precious in our systems and our organizations.


We hear so much online, in the news media, and in conversations across the table that we must accept things. We must “get past our fear”, as if that were an easy thing to do like opening a door, or talking on the phone. How do you “get past” something so vast? So all encompassing? When the road map was incinerated along with the vehicle? When EVERY time we turn on the news, share on social media, or walk past a conversation on the street we are faced with another traumatic event propelling us into an uncontrollable spiral of despair and disempowerment.

We’ve collectively given ourselves permission to bring our entire planet to the brink of destruction. Whether you are a fundamentalist Christian who feels this is all ours to burn up because the Rapture is near and this earth is really our living Hell, or you are an Earth Keeper protecting and seeing Spirit in all, or anything in between, we have ALL created where we are in this moment. Yes, you and I ARE co-creators of the problem here, regardless where we sit in our beliefs and values.

Minds won’t be changed on either side, in fact, actions and behaviors will begin to escalate on all sides creating even more friction, more fear, more anger, more separation.

But fear leaves us with no options. This is a time of sitting in your fear, recognizing it for what it is, honoring it, then moving past it into your personal power, your personal directives that come from Source.

For those whose hearts and minds propel them into action to keep our species from imploding, along with thousands of other living beings on this planet, take heed.

Now is the time to show up. Fully. Show up as your total Spiritual Self. Now is the time to show up. Show up and quit hiding in the shadows of doubt, and lack of self-trust. Now is the time to show up. Show up with a full and open heart, deep compassion, and a clear ability to stand in your Center. Now is the time to show up. Show up and set aside ALL internally and externally imposed denial of your true innate personal and spiritual power. Now is the time to show up. Show up in your pure Spiritual practice made ordinary and extraordinary.

This message comes across to me now loud and clear all day and into my dream state. It is a mantra. It is a call to action. It is what is critically necessary NOW.

Have you received your marching orders yet? If not, you will. Be still and listen. Listen with your whole body. All the teaching, training, experiences, trauma, lessons, running, hiding, pretending, longing, procrastinating, distracting, healing, awareness, avoidance, allowance - all of it - is now synthesized into this moment now.

Story after story is pouring in from all over of a similar vision. A vision of healing the Masculine, and recognizing that the Feminine is rising NOW. Gaia, Mother Earth, Women, Men, our Youth and Children, we are rising up NOW in response not just to the US election results and the assault on our precious waters and sacred lands, but to so many affronts locally and globally.

We have been maturing into this time, this moment, this hour for decades. Many are referencing the quote “we are the ones we’ve been waiting for”, and this couldn’t be more true.

What can you do? How can you “show up” when you haven’t stopped throwing up?

For my Shamanic students, do you remember ‘The Protocol’ that I taught you? Now is the time to use it. To go deep into your own psyche. To magnetize your inner Shaman and embrace the teachings you receive from your deep inner guidance.

For my Reiki students, now is the time to utilize your daily practice again. Infuse yourselves with universal Love and compassion daily, and hold close to your personal Reiki Mantras.

Once you begin to hear your next call to action, then you must take that step literally. If you are called to paint, then paint. If you are called to prayer, then pray. If you are called to lead, then lead. If you are called to work with the land you live on, then do that. Whatever it is that you are being notified is your specific task, then do that. The key is self-trust combined with right action. Trust your inner guidance now like you have never trusted it before AND take right action, listening constantly for that deep inner wisdom you possess.

You are not helpless. Now is not the time to go to ground. Now is also not the time to continue into a paralyzing downward spiral of fear. Stay in your center. Like the Buddha in the middle of the massive city. Keep your gaze soft and your mind quiet while the world around you moves in chaos. You can be in the center of chaos, yet not be of the chaos. Breathe. Know that this is the time we have all been preparing for. Breathe into your compassionate loving core. Stay in your center.
