    • Hello Zuzana.

      I am mystified where your message ‘went’. I just set up a Google account for a different purpose and immediately saw your message.
      Thank-you for your condolences.
      I am currently working on a biography of my dad and am looking for contributors. If you have some short stories you would like to share from the time he was treating you, I would be honoured to include them in the book.
      As I have been writing his book I have also been transcribing his workshops (and have started teaching the workshops) as well as working with clients in my own practice (which, of course, is based on all that I learned from him)
      You may contact me at: ravenmoonvisions@hotmail.com at anytime and I can fill you in on the details of anything I have talked about in this e-mail or any other questions you may have.




    • Glad you liked it. Sorry for the delay in noticing your comment (been having problems clarifying a situation with WordPress – (we went round and round for a while before we both realized we were trying to solve the problem through the wrong e-mail account – LOL). Not sure where you live, but we have a workshop coming up in the Calgary area Oct 3rd and 4th.

      Take Care
