Over the past 40 years I studied many areas of what we refer to as energy medicine. I studied with various healers including the foremost authorities in Chinese Medicine, profound and wise energy healers, meditation teachers of many traditions, and indigenous healers and spiritual leaders in the Americas. The place that all the modalities converge is that the greatest teacher is nature, and our relationship with it, and its natural rhythms and flows. Through the flow of the five elements as in Chinese Medical theory, we see how one element flows and generates movement to the next element ultimately creating and establishing unity. Using all the learning and knowledge has been a journey toward understanding the healing possibilities and ourselves in every moment.
In 2005 I began taking classes in Qigong. I enjoyed feeling the Qi in my body and developing a practice. But then in 2008 after taking a class with Jerry Alan Johnson, I found myself in an unexpected bend in the road. I learned about Medical Qigong treatments and loved doing this style of energy healing using all the principles of Chinese Medicine. It incorporated all the spiritual, emotional, and energetic aspects of Chinese Medicine. In my mid-fifties, much to my surprise, I enrolled in a master’s program. Eventually, I enrolled in a Doctoral Program and in 2022 at the young age of 68 I earned a Doctorate in Medical Qigong. Medical Qigong is a passion and I teach numerous classes weekly and offer Medical Qigong treatments by zoom or on the phone.
To add to this in my semi-retirement I found myself going back to passions such as astrology which was my first exposure to the elements. I always love learning and this sprang up on me by surprise. I am now offering readings of natal readings with transits, progressions and solar return charts and to add to this some intuitive reading added in. In December 2023 I completed a 10 week class with Astrobutterfly – AstroButterfly Wings Pro. This class focused entirely on chart reading. I’m happy to share it with you through readings.
And semi-retirement which began October 2022, has been defined so far by going in a van throughout the country and finding the secrets that nature holds within her. I’m shedding old skin and renewing myself to develop unique ways to heal where we are now and to help all people to develop their health, heart and understanding.
I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to teach in many Acupuncture and Acupressure colleges throughout the country. For over ten years I have been on faculty at the Academy for Five Element Acupuncture in Gainesville, Florida. I also have collaborated with Amy Skezas through Roselight. As well I travel throughout the U.S. leading workshops on different aspects of healing and the spiritual arts.
As well, in 2016 Eve Soldinger published a memoir called Unexpected Gifts: My Journey with my Father’s Dementia. To obtain a copy please follow this Amazon link.
