The Spirit Centered Practice

The theory of what you do and the techniques and tools you possess facilitate adaptive change. Unless you are dedicated to being a vehicle for the wisdom of a client’s spirit—a client’s unseen, intangible being— I believe your skills as a healer are limited.

Aspects of a Spirit Centered Practice Include:
  • respecting the truths of your clients and distinguishing those truths from your own
  • finding ways to enter the paradigm of your clients instead of expecting them to enter yours
  • considering your tools and your work to be one way rather than the way
  • doing your personal work to continue to evolve
  • being honest about your limits
  • being willing to accept feedback from clients
  • honoring clients’ limits as their inner wisdom
  • accepting that sometimes you or your tools are not suited to a client
  • taking responsibility for referring clients to other practitioners when appropriate
As you hone your skills as a practitioner, I believe you are called to:
  • expand your capacity to be an advocate for the spirit of your clients
  • work within a framework of mutual respect
  • expand your capacity to trust your clients’ wisdom, including that which is beyond your knowing or your skills
  • continue your personal work to become a clearer vessel
  • explore your biases and beliefs related to healing
