I began the Mind Key endeavor because on my path of self-discovery I lost my way. Haven’t we all at some point? I let bad relationships and bad situations break me down. I let old programming rule my life when I should have broken the records long ago. I used to hear the faeries clearly, but once I lost that connection it took time for me to hear them again.
Only once I realized how broken I truly was could healing begin. I went the regular MD route. Which is a wonderful and necessary option - except when it doesn’t help. I began seeing naturopathic doctor, Doni Wilson, and she taught me more than I could hope to understand about my body. I began taking yoga. Then, after a few devastating physical and emotional traumas, I began cranio-sacral therapy and learned focusing. That’s when I began to get back in touch with ME, my body, who I am and how I tick. These huge milestones were still only small parts of my overall path of healing, discovery and growth, but what I realized was that there is no one right path for anybody. In fact, I needed to embrace (and merge) many pathways - from art therapy to conscious eating - and am still learning more everyday.
So where does Mind Key fit into this? We’re here to bring all these modalities of healing, and many many more to you - the adventurer, the pilgrim, the wanderer on the path of self discovery. Mind Key isn’t about telling you “what’s right,” or what to do, it’s about providing the tools to make that determination for yourself.
Why did I begin Mind Key? Because I knew something was wrong when after years of seeking help for medical conditions my doctor finally sat me down with a iron clad diagnosis I just couldn’t stomach. My gut told me “this isn’t right.” Turns out my gut was right. Was the doctor wrong? Not necessarily, but doctors are experts in one field… and healing and growth occurs on many levels, in many fields.
Back then I didn’t know where to turn, so I spent a lot of time and money traveling and listening. I researched everything and in the end followed my gut. Healing and growth are rarely easy, and it requires a concerted effort. Now the things I and others have found and heard and researched will be here, in one place, to make your research and your gut work a little less as you travel your own path.
Mind Key is still in the baby stages, but we’re working with more than practitioners in the health and spirituality. We’re working with community centers and events, artists, garden centers, hiking groups - because these are ALL modalities and/or hubs of healing and growth.
So why Mind Key?
Because Mind Key has resources for anyone looking to do right by him or herself. Anyone looking for something fun and wholesome. Anyone wanting to grow in their life, relationships and career. Those who want to eat, live and be healthier and more sustainable. Anyone who has something to say to others or learn for themselves. Anyone looking to peel away the layers and discover the mystical and mysterious, or simply the truth of self. Those who want to hear their guides, understand their body and psyche, or simply be a part of the great whole. Anyone who wants to make change, either in himself, or throughout the world. Those who live, and those who serve. Those who want a better understanding of who they are, their place, and why things happen the way they do.
But most importantly, anyone who wants to do these things on their own terms and discover new ways when the old methods and old records have stopped working.
