BIO
Twenty-five years ago Elizabeth survived a three year long kundalini awakening, and shamanic initiation. She emerged from this profound experience with a deep understanding of energy, embodiment and spirit. Since then she has been able to see the patterns, and interconnections within people’s lives with great clarity, She has a profound understanding of transpersonal experiences, and a deeply personal grasp of how the mind can heal the body.

Transforming Embodiment® or TE® is a set of practices that Elizabeth developed in the early 1990’s. These practices are a simple and direct amalgam of questions, meditations, visualizations and purification practices that use inner imagery, awareness, intuition, shamanic principles, energy and psychic techniques and chakra process work to discover the origins or causes of physical symptoms, recurring patterns and painful emotional states.

Transforming Embodiment weaves together science, spirituality, and mind-body healing practices and weds these to Hawai'ian, Buddhist, and Taoist healing, and spiritual traditions. TE explores the nature of mind, memory, consciousness, embodiment, healing and the interconnections between our past and present.
