When I was growing up, my mother frequently said that I was “accident prone.” Perhaps it’s because I broke my leg when I was two by “putting my foot down” when the neighbor kid was pushing four of us on a carriage swing. I wanted him to stop pushing so hard and when screaming didn’t work, I tried another tactic.

My mother was probably right, I think I’ve had more than my share of injuries and broken bones.

When I think about all the desires I have in life, having peace of mind and feeling good in my body are always at the top of the list. I’ve witnessed my clients transform physical challenges by tapping into metaphoric energies. It’s so tremendously healing to be plugged into something larger than ourselves. I know this work is powerful. Let’s tap it.

Metaphoric work is shamanic. When we “enter into” and become a metaphoric image—like a shaman might become a snake or a tree—it brings us into a realm of powerful creative energies that lie beyond our linear minds. Metaphoric images serve as portals, doorways into a mystical realm of otherworldly energies that urgently wish to express through us. They allow us to directly connect with the deep creative forces of our world.

Why is this important? Because creativity is how change happens in life. 

Our capacity to engage in this dynamic, underground metaphoric terrain gives us the remarkable ability to transform things that aren’t serving us. From resolving relationship difficulties to galvanizing a stagnating career, to healing depression, anxiety and physical ailments.

So if you have any health concerns or challenges, or you simply want to feel more alive, serene and happy in your physical body...I hope you’ll join us in an upcoming teleclass sponsored by Depth Psychology Alliance.

Healthy, Strong & Vibrant: Tapping Metaphor’s Healing Powers – Teleclass

Friday October 27  1 – 3 pm Pacific Daylight Time  (4 – 7 pm EDT)

NOTE: Since this is a teleclass, you can live anywhere in the world and participate. If you can’t make the class live, it WILL be recorded so you can listen later.

At a fundamental level, metaphor is not an image, but a sacred creative energy that wants to… shift your vibratory system and align you with an intelligence that lies beyond the linear mind. Tapping into these Source Energies and allowing them to move through us is profoundly healing. A metaphoric feeling sense... is how this realm teaches, heals and guides us.

Please bring to the class whatever health concern or questions you’re currently dealing with—no topic or question is off-limits. (You may participate in the class anonymously if that feels more comfortable.)

Through the somatic wisdom of metaphor we will enter a realm of potent Source Energy that can’t be visualized or “imagined” in the traditional sense. Customary visualization techniques can be problematic because they tend to keep us stuck in our mind’s limited perception of reality.

You will be able to see the energetic roots of health challenges…and most importantly, what your body wants for healing.

  • move through the world with grace, calm and ease
  • transform aging, illness, aches and pain
  • institute better habits of self-care
  • gain greater strength, flexibility and balance
  • flourish and thrive

Join us…and give your body a loving embrace.

$32 BEFORE Friday, October 13th ($42 after that)

NOTE: This teleclass WILL be recorded. Sign up for the replay if you can't make it in-person.

“Not since Carlos Castenada’s books 40 years ago, have I had such a strong reaction. Kim’s work is pioneering.” ~ Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, New York Times bestselling author of Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience 

“I had been suffering from skin allergies and I was not getting results from regular medical doctors. I was so surprised that this one session could lead to such amazing healing. And in addition, I’ve also lost the weight I’d gained during menopause. I’m very grateful.” ~ Lera Welch, Jungian Coach

“I’ve been married for 15 years and I’ve felt anything BUT sexual for quite a long time. The energies that came through in our session were so deeply sensual and erotic, and ‘woke me up’ in so many ways. What a gift for the sexual part of me to be alive and thriving again.” ~ T. Baker, therapist
