May Healing Points

One of the things I hear often goes something like this:  "Why would I need healing, there is nothing wrong with me."  Or perhaps something like: "I may have a few problems, but my doctor is taking care of them."  Or even: "I have (fill in the disease of choice), but I don't think that what you do will help."

I've heard phrases like these often.  It's led me to realize that there is a fundamental need for expanding the concept of what healing and health are.  

Of course we've all heard doctors and healers say that health is more than the absence of disease.  I've communicated that concept a lot in the past. 

But there is much more to it than that.

Health could be called a state of harmony in body, mind and spirit. Not only not having symptoms of illness, but having a quality of joy about life and living.  It's significant to note that this level of health can even exist for someone with a serious illness!

But there is more to it than that.

It starts with forgiveness.  Not in a mental/emotional sense that we are so familiar with, but a forgiveness that is a total release into Light and Love of any vestige of that which has caused pain.  A total letting go of resentments, angers, fears, and even the slightest of mental attachments to any part of the past.  The past not only of our individual lives, but the past of our nation, cultures, tribes, religions, and families.  A letting go even of that.  And even of that (and that too . . . ).

And there is more.

See, it is an infinite path.  A path that began  far in the past and will continue forever into the infinite future.  More importantly, it is the path of the present moment.  A decision and a choice that occurs with each and every breath we take; with every moment that we are alive. It has nothing to do with fear and pain.  It has everything to do with Trust. Trusting Trust. Trusting the unfolding process of Life. And there is no limit to how deeply trust can be felt, and no limit to the Joy that can occur. 

There truly is never a time when it's as good as it gets. For it is an infinite Journey, starting right now and happening right now. 

Journey to the Amazon

Summer 2006


The Journey to the Amazon is happening soon.  The dates have been changed to August 8th to the 18th. I have a full webpage now that describes in much greater detail what will be offered to those fortunate enough to attend. 

This is truly going to be an incredible and very profound experience. It will also be an amazing adventure! The level of healing that will occur happens at a depth that is literally life-transforming. Because of the deep nature of this journey, and because I will be working closely with every person who joins me, I am limiting this trip to 10-15 committed people.  So if you are interested in joining me on this adventure into healing, Click Here to find out if this Journey is right for you and how to


Upcoming Events:

Journey to the Heart is sponsoring an informative evening with Dr. Richard Grossman, L.Ac., O.M.D., Ph.D, to share about his mystical experiences in  Ecuador and Peru from last year.  Richard was able to experience healing  ceremonies several times over the course of his stay with both an Ecuadorian Shaman from the Napo Runa tribe and with a Shipibo shaman in Peru. Richard will share with his audience  more about this experience.  There also will be an opportunity to find out whether a journey like this is for you and then to express interest in joining Richard in his upcoming trip to Peru this summer.  There you will both work directly with the Peruvian shaman as well as receive healing sessions with Richard and the shaman's healing guidance and care over a period of ten days.
Cost for the evening: Free (although donations to Journey to the Heart will be accepted)

The Regenesis Center

May 26, 2006

This will be the last soundJourney held in Los Angeles until I return from the Amazon. On Friday, May 26, 2006, a soundJourney event will be held at The Regenesis Center in Santa Monica. The event starts at 8:00, and due to the focused inner nature of the soundJourney experience, there will be no admittance after 8:20.

"soundJourney is transformation via sound. Using indigenous instruments combined with modern technology, Richard Grossman weaves a spell of shamanic sound, vibration, healing, and Love."

Tickets are $25.00 if paid in advance, $30.00 at the door. Please call Brandy at The Regenesis Center for more information and to purchase admission.
