“Jin Shin Do” means “The Way of the Compassionate Spirit.” Jin Shin Do® Bodymind Acupressure® uses gentle yet deep finger pressure on specific acu-points and verbal Body Focusing techniques, to help release “armoring” or chronic tension, balance the “Qi” or energy, and improve vitality. This clothes-on method helps relieve stress- and trauma- related problems. Originated by psychotherapist Iona Marsaa Teeguarden, JSD promotes a pleasant trancelike state, in which one can relax and move out of the head and into the body, accessing feelings and inner wisdom.

CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of the cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds and protects the brain and spinal cord. Using a soft touch generally no greater than the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.

Sylvester Hodge
A Reiki session involves the use of hands without touching as the primary deliverer of life energy or Ki. The energy is delivered to the body’s energy centers or chakras. A person receiving Reiki is fully clothed and invited to relax. As blockages and releasing are occurring, individuals may experience insights to issues in their lives. Being open to the energies of Reiki is a life changing event and can lead to more understanding of the true self.

Stefanie Butler – Atlanta Sound Healing
Stefanie uses Tibetan Singing Bowls and voice to create a healing space for her clients. Everything is vibrational and when we are “out of tune”, the bowls can assist us in returning to balance, shifting energetic blocks and balancing our chakras. The bowls have the ability to put us into alpha or theta brainwave states that let us access a quiet, peaceful state of mind which has a powerful healing effect on our bodies, mind and spirit.

Alchemy ~ by Dana Sheridan

The cycle has begun
my opposites – becoming one…
in the fire of transmutation
i hold within, my creation

quiet and near,
i hold it dear…

letting the dross burn away…
trusting i’ll see a better day
i climb to the depths of my deepest cave
as i surrender and ride the wave…

i can only laugh
at this crazy path…

what can i gather? what can i savor?
what can i hold deep and true?
what can i birth to create more beauty?
what is the vision that i can bring thru?

i hold in my heart
a dream of great worth…
im holding the vision
of Heaven on Earth

within and without
above and below…
i’m dreaming it in…
and so it is so!

Tribal ReUnion Process – Supermoon Session

Originally uploaded by kamphora

Entry Point: The earth and all of its inhabitants are at 100 % healthy, loving and safe now on all levels. Spirit please, for the best and highest good of all concerned. * The entry point is similar to setting an intention or saying a creative prayer. A ReUnion Process Session illuminates potential unconscious roadblocks in manifesting this intention and utilizes a variety of tools (including applied kinesiology) to communicate with the subconscious and assist in the clearing of a path for love and grace to flow. This tribal, or group session was facilitated by Tamara Albright remotely on behalf of all life. The book, The ReUnion Process by Peter Scupham, INRI is referenced throughout the session notes below. As the session begins, we are are asked to be aware that we are opening our hearts to the glory of the Divine’s presence.

At the root of our current situation is a psychic conflict with another group spurning from a wounding rejection that originally dates back 100’s of years prior to BC in Peru. We have been taking on this other groups belief that “We can not accomplish our mission of love in this life.” (Our mission of love is expressed through a thankful heart’s service to others and unconditional gratitude for all beings seen and unseen.)

This other group has also been influencing us with an overall sense of being unsafe, thereby creating energetic blocks in our kundalini when it comes to facing things, an introversion into self protection and an inflexibility to changing with the tides of life. (Physical indications of this are stiffness, joint pain and/or headaches.)

The ability to change and flow with a sense of excitement and joy regarding the future has being stilled by our despairing fears and guidance has being ignored by this inappropriate need to defend ourselves.

An inner anxiety that “I must let go to the Divine’s will…AND…I must decide to to do,” further compounds the situation. With this, our inner world has been impelled to lead us to failure.

The following steps have been facilitated on behalf of the earth and all beings to initiate the release of these aforementioned forces: Prayer that these forces are lifted from our inner world, as well as inviting a seed of light within the the north pole of our Earth and the crown of all beings and to grow and flourish. To further integrate this facilitation, we are asked to attempt to speak/think no ill of ourselves or others during the processing time to be complete by April 6th.

We encounter these traumas and dramas in our lives as an opportunity to heal, thereby prompting us towards accomplishing our Mission of total and unconditional love. As the session closes, we are again reminded that we are opening our hearts to the glory of the Divine’s presence. Love and light to us all!

“I try to avoid looking forward or backward, and try to keep looking upward.”
~ Charlotte Bronte

In person, phone and remote individual and group ReUnion Process sessions are available to non-CIK/SoHA and INRI clients. Contact Tamara Albright to learn more: or 404.822.6952.
