This picture was taken outside a completely sustainable Earth Ship home under construction  in Taos, New Mexico. I was able to stay in two different Earth Ships while attending a seven day Qoya Intensive there. What a sacred experience that was! We only used eight, yes eight, inches of water each in a week. There were six of us staying there and we were nourished on many levels and so comfortable. I learned so much more about myself as well as the practice of Qoya. What a blessing! As a bonus, staying there also enabled me to connect more to Spirit and the earth, Pachemama. The beauty and stillness of the desert is unlike anything I have ever experienced before.

About Deborah:
 
As a child I had an affinity to trees and all beings, actually. I would mimic mourning doves, starting conversations with them, knowing that we did communicate on some level when they replied! (I still do this.) I would talk to many a praying mantis and be enamored when one would tilt its head to listen to me. I would be the one playing with a daddy long legs and taking the bugs from inside the house outside to rescue them. (Old habits never leave, I am still the one doing this.) I would collect tadpoles and watch them transform into frogs. My sister and I, much to the chagrin of our mother, would watch them hop down the hallway in our house. I had a deep connection with our family pet, Cookie, spending much time with her during her seventeen years. I even taught her to speak the words, "Mama", "I love you" and "I am a good girl". I would spend hours in nature with the trees, walking among them, touching them, talking to them, reading under them and taking in their healing. I had a very cool rock collection, still do!
When I contracted ulcers and digestive issues as a teenager and again, later in my twenties, no Western medical doctor could give relief. I needed to look elsewhere. Nature helped. This was bolstered by my experiencing the healing arts through various practitioners.  I believe my thirst for knowledge in this field began with the book, Conversations with God, why couldn't anyone do this? Have a conversation with the Divine? We all can! We have a connection that has been lost in our society.  

We need to remember the sacredness of self and our connection to all beings, the ancestors, guides, and the Divine.  I have been a student and teacher of the healing arts officially since early 2006 when I won a door prize for a Reiki session while attending a women's conference at Unity Church in Lincroft, New Jersey. Since then, I am  blessed to have learned an array of healing tools to magnify joy, blessings and love.


I am a certified drum circle practitioner through Remo and Healthy Rhythms, a certified Reiki Master/Teacher, a Shamanic practitioner, a certified teacher of Mindfulness, a Healing Rhythm facilitator, a sound healing practitioner, and a Qoya teacher. I am also a certified teacher of English and Special Education having taught in both private and public middle schools and high schools in New York and New Jersey, as well as at Wagner College in New York. I have used a variety of healing modalities as a form of stress relief with my students for over thirty years.


I am honored to have studied and taken multiple classes, training's, certifications and several apprenticeships with renown teachers such as Christine Stevens, the late Don Campbell, Vicki Dodd,  Deepak Chopra, Diane Todd, Zacciah Blackburn, Rochelle Schieck, Rosie Wargarten, Marco Dolce, Kristen White, Cyndy Paige, Adam Kane, Al Romao, Sean Fargo and Dr. Chris Willard.


I have taken classes and become certified through PESI Inc., Remo, The Reiki Institute of America, Mindful Schools, Mindfulness Exercises, and  Mindful Educators at Blue Cliff Monastery.


I am currently enrolled in the Holistic Health Masters program at Georgian Court University and loving it!
