Here’s me looking all professional and the like. Nice, yeah? Thank you Sue Bryce!

I’m an ex-rocket scientist/corporate road warrior who thought that massage was a luxury, listening to your heart was super crazy, and that logic was supreme over intuition.

This all head/no heart lifestyle nearly killed me. Turns out that listening to my body and being kind to it was the thing that saved me.

So, I created a practice to teach people how to listen to their heads and their hearts through their bodies. My little engineer brain was surprised to find that this stuff really works and it brings way more fun, prosperity and peace into life too. Triple win. #notrocketscience

This is a guru-free zone. I don’t know what’s best for you but I have full faith that you know what’s true for you…and if you can cultivate that relationship between the head and the heart, you’re gonna keep shining baby.
