I describe myself a mutt because I don't believe I fall into any stereotypes as a Eurasian, as a scientist or as a energy healer. So I invite you to keep reading with an open mind and heart... I promise that you've not met anyone like me!
I'm a holistic healer for a happy & healthy brain, and am passionate about what I do! I'm deeply committed to my personal growth (I've come a LOOONG way (thanks to powerful methods) since I started this work), and the growth of my clients, and I'm looking for someone that values growth (and I'm not referring to your waistline), as an important part of your journey.
I'm also quite health conscious, and love outdoor activities (hiking, snow sports), and dance, yoga & rocking climbing and I eat plenty of vegetables. While you don't need to enjoy all the same activities I do, it's important for me to be with someone who can keep up with me and who shares my values and general tastes in food.
Having lived in Hong Kong in my youth and traveled a bit through Asia, southeast Asia (Tibet, China, Thailand, India, Nepal) and beyond (New Zealand, Europe, Mexico) , I consider myself reasonably worldly, and I'd love to find someone who loves exploring diverse cultures as much as I do!
While I can be perfectly serious, let me introduce you to my more playful (smartass) side:
Oh, you want to know about me? Well I’m beautiful. That’s because I’m a woman. (I think that actually comes with the definition of being a woman, right? Isn’t that what wikipedia says?) I speak cat fluently. I’m seriously serious minded. I can spell “eseehc” forwards. I was the VP of programming at Diebold and convicted drug trafficker for Halloween, and all I had to do to look like a geek was to put on a pair of glasses. My bout with chickenpox in kindergarten destroyed my dream of being a pumpkin narrator forever.
If you think you might qualify, drop me a line. If you are a ~36-54 yr old male, bring a flower, chocolate, your sense of humor or intriguing conversation as well. It usually starts things off on the more agile and well-trained foot.
I am fun and curious, I live a purposeful life and am socially conscious.
My exploration with energy medicine has taken me on some wild and fascinating rides. I'm constantly being surprised about where it takes me, and the miracles I've experienced or been a part of as a result. I'm passionate about this work and feel incredibly grateful for the opportunity and priviledge to be a part of other's healing process.
I have been in Toastmasters for 3 yrs, and am working on being a better public speaker and story teller. I'm also really digging doing improv these days.
Since I've moved to Seattle, I've become a regular hiker (thanks to meetups) - how can I not? I love the varied terrain here - and especially the waterfalls and alpine lakes! I also really enjoy the x-country skiing, and snow shoeing, and hope to be able to do some downhill skiing next yr!
I've been a long time group exercise geek. Taught for over 10 years. Now just enjoying the classes. I love step, classes w/good choreography, muscle conditioning, yoga, etc. As long as it challenges me, I'm happy! Variety is the spice of life!
On my serious side, I am becoming very concerned about growing inequality and the loss of our democracy.

This quote really resonates with me:
"It's beautiful when you find someone that is in love with your mind. Someone that wants to undress your conscience and make love to your thoughts. Someone that wants to watch you slowly take down all the walls you've built up around your mind and let them inside."
