When I was 9 years old, my grandfather died unexpectedly. I was at home in my room. He appeared in a blue blazer and captain's hat and told me that he just died and we'd be together again. That started me wondering about things, for sure...
A few years later, I was at ballet camp and read the book A Search for Bridey Murphy, about a NY housewife who experienced regression hypnosis and entered into the life of an Irish woman with exquisite detail that was later confirmed with a trip to that remote village in Ireland.
This was followed by one mind-blowing experience with organic mescaline, with decades of meditation in its wake.
Perhaps as a balance to this airy-fairiness, I went to architecture and medical school. These appealed to my investigative and structural nature. I like a scaffolding on which I can organize my understanding.
After surviving an uncomfortable 32 year marriage, and raising a literally genius ADHD kid, I developed an interest in working not only with the mind, but also with the brain. I enrolled in a doctoral program for psychophysiology and managed to graduate just north of qualifying for Medicare.
Now my true love (and new husband) is an engineer with a passion for self-hacking. Together, we provide home neurofeedback and biofeedback, and I round it off with trauma hypnotherapy.
About 3 years ago, I contacted Ron Klein and told him I'd like to help him evolve NBCCH a bit so that it provides more than credentialing. He assigned me the title Executive Director of Membership. And here we all are, experiencing the resurrection of NBCCH. (Thankfully, I'd been designing a new website with him that was available to launch when he became so ill and shut things down.)
And that's my story. Oh. Except I love Paris and looking at how the sky endlessly changes.
