I was fortunate to have a very rich life, both in terms of blessings  and challenges. My post is based on everyday human experience that anyone can relate to, not theory or intellectual speculation. My path has been filled with valuable lessons and tools in education, spirituality, healing, parenting and life in general and sharing them with you, I hope you give the tools for a freer and more joyful life where wonder  has pride of place with a down-to-earth practicality. Listen to Blooming in the Light every Thursday at 10 a.m. PT on VoiceAmerica 7th Wave.

My skills are in the field of energy healing, spirituality, teaching, education  special and art.

I started transcendental meditation in 1973  and, under the guidance of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, I became a TM teacher.

This has brought me immense benefits, growth, understanding and many surprises!


About 20 years later I discovered that I had an ability to heal others using my hands but I wanted an actual time-proven technique. I was lucky to find Kolaimni, a very complete method that is at the same time very powerful and gentle. I have practiced it for 20 years and have been an instructor for 4 years.

I have also taught in a private school and gave private classes. I am a weaver.

I owned a restaurant, Petit Paris, for 5 years and co-authored the Petit Paris at Home Cookbook Petit Paris at Home Cookbook

I practice Jingui Golden Shield Qi Gong and have received the The Rites of the Munay-Ki.

Kolaimni Healing Technique  May 12,  2016

This program will present the Kolaimni Healing Technique, what it is, what it does, how it works and how and where to learn it.
Kolaimni (pronounced “Ko-lame-nee”) is a unique ancient method of energy healing that is at the same time very gentle and very powerful. It is a healing form based on natural physical law, which makes use of the body's own vibrations.
People who practice Kolaimni connect with the Universal Light and use it to aid the sick, comfort the broken hearted and strengthen others who are weak and weary.
It allows the practitioner to connect the recipient to the Universal Light to renew the body's own restorative powers.
Because the Universal Light is the basic component of every living thing in the universe, all of us have access to it. As a consequence all of us can learn Kolaimni and practice it successfully to help ourselves and our loved ones.
It is easy to learn in one weekend.

The Value of Visualization, meditation and breating exercise  June 2, 2016

In this episode we will experience together two exercises that I have learned from my Kolaimni teacher, Mechi Garza.
The first one is a visualization technique that allows us to perceive the deeper reality of an object, (an orange in this case). The value of this exercise is to broaden and develop a different kind of perception, to train our senses differently so they may grow to give us a truer "  vision  »Of the world around us.
The second one is a breathing exercise that is extremely calming and which can be of great use whenever we might be challenged and are in a situation that does not offer us the privacy we might need to practice a short meditation for example.
These are simple, practical techniques that I invite you to include in your tools for a better Life.
