I am the developer of Mindfulness-based Bowen Touch Therapy and direct Core Balance Bowen Touch Therapy Training and the Harrison School of Human Resources, Berkeley, California. I have always been primarily a hands-on body educator, mindfulness-based practitioner and I offer training to individuals and groups when requested. I love teaching laypeople ways for working with loved ones.

From 1973-1979 I served as a founding member/practitioner of the Center for Holistic Arts and The Center for Aliveness and Wellbeing, San Diego, California. In 1987, I helped provide effective massage and bodywork programs for the Claremont European Health Spa, Oakland Ca. I have practiced and taught in Yelapa and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico; Puna and Goa, India, the University of North Carolina, Greensborough; San Diego and La Jolla, California and now for the past 24 years in the Berkeley/San Francisco Bay area.
