Give me the Lights, Precious Lights

While all those bikers had their thing going on in France, for me this past month has been an amazing Tour de Force for providing Network Care!  It started mid-July with a half day workshop that Jenny and I created and facilitated - Awaken to Action - hosted by the dynamic duo Dr. Aimee and Ian Davis at In Touch Wellness in Rockland, Maine.  We had a wide range of participants from relative Network Care ...Read more


"I started meditating regularly again after a substantial hiatus. I am also significantly closer to my family than I ever remember being in my life. I am very grateful for the support of my wholeness given by this office.   Thank you, thank you."

May My Life Be My Prayer

This past weekend was quite an auspicious one as the last time my birthday fell on a Saturday prior to Labor Day was in 2004 – the first time I was invited to be on the Wise World Seminars staff as one of the entraining chiropractors.  I’ll never forget Donny Epstein, the developer of Network Spinal Analysis and Somato Respiratory Integration, calling me at home and asking me how I would feel about working on my Birthday.  I jumped up and down in our living room shouting “Yes! Yes! Yes!”

What an honor and a total JOY to serve at the Transformational Gate again on my birthday this year.  There is no better reminder for me why I am on this planet than to assist people to connect deeply with themselves and remember why THEY are on the planet!  This time was no less magical.  In fact, it was more.  On that note, as the Universe would have it, my tables were positioned in the exact same place in the room as my maiden voyage in ’04.

What made this year extra special was also being asked to serve at a brand new program that followed the 137th Transformational Gate:  Awaken – The Embodied Experience. About half of the participants from the Gate and five of the staff entrainers plus Donny and three SRI facilitators created a day beyond what I anticipated was possible – pure magic.  If you have ever experienced a Gate yourself, you know what it is like to be in a hotel ballroom filled with people following six Network entrainments, each one building on the previous woven together with a tapestry of SRI, and other cool classes (like Nia!) to facilitate people awakening to themselves at greater and greater depths of being.  Now imagine an entire next day with two more entrainments of Awaken (level 3 as we used to call it) being merged with aspects of Discover and Transform Care.  The end result was beyond powerful.

The Celebration that followed the ending of the program was so far beyond any Network event I have EVER attended, and I have been to a lot! (I Gotta Feeling…) Why?  Well for all of you who thought you would wait this one out to let them work the bugs out let me give you a little teaser.  What made this program exceptional beyond being stacked on top of a Gate and beyond two additional entrainments from phenomenal entrainers (wink) was the exercises that created personal accountability for the participants.

Each person went through a process which asked for the compelling emotions that were linked to an even more compelling future while being aware of what has kept them from moving forward in the past. I won’t dive into the details, as you will have to attend to find out for yourself.  However, I will say that the Grand Finale was a montage of group SRI which included stages two, six, and eleven all being fused with MANY powerful stage twelves (the best demonstration I have ever experienced by the man who brought this brilliance to the planet – THANK YOU, DONNY!).  And as if this wasn’t enough, the program ended with a group process the likes of which I have never seen or experienced – “May My Life Be My Prayer.”  I will not give any details about this other than you MUST put it on your top 10 things to experience just above “Skydiving.”

What a wonderful way to spend a birthday – In the presence of a community of Souls I love.  Now that’s a gift worth receiving, but then again aren’t they ALL.  Thank You!

Hello from Dana Fonteneau. (SRI W.E. in the Bay Area, CA.) My Mom, Sheryl LaFayette mentioned you studied Suzuki cello with Barbara Wampner. How amazing. I studied Suzuki teacher training from her back when I was a fulltime cellist.. before Network Care came into my life. :)

Anyway-I just wanted to say thank you for posting this. It really helped anchor that amazing experience and just reading your words put me right back into that room at the end of the Awaken Program…. priceless.

Thank you, thank you.
