About twenty five years ago, Suzy began to apply her background in medical anthropology to pursue a burning question: "How is ritual used for healing?" To answer this question, she established a women's ritual circle, which lasted seven years. Skipping just one sabbat, she went on to found the Dragon Spirit Taoist Wiccan All-Gender Circle, which continues to this day with practitioners and small circles across the U.S. From this experience, was born the vision and "new tradition" of Taoist Wicca and her forthcoming book series as well as the Exclusive Circle Materials for sale as downloads on this site.
Her Internet radio shows include:

She has logged over 10,000 clinically supervised hours and has extensive experience in Bay Area chiropractic and acupuncture clinics, as well as in spa and private practice.
She holds a B.A. in Holistic Health from New College of Ca. where she studied comparative Eastern and Western medical models. This training allows her to create treatment plans with practitioners of other disciplines.
This training has also laid the foundation for her work on Taoist Wicca and her forthcoming book series. the first of which is titled: Discovering Taoist Wicca & the Wisdom of the Seasons.
Suzy has been featured as a guest lecturer for the M.S Society on pain and stress management and served as a Curriculum Adviser for the CMT program at Bryman College, often speaking to massage therapy students on such subjects as: Pain-specific modalities; Body/Mind Integration; the Wholistic Principle; Reiki and other energy techniques. She has taught Reiki to many of the massage practitioners of Kabuki Springs and Spa.
Suzy is one of an increasing number of Non-Traditional Reiki Master Teachers who believe that well-being is a birth right that must be affordable and accessible to all who will honor and use the energy. She regularly offer Reiki and Chakra classes at reasonable rates as part of my dedication to the healing arts.
As an Interfaith Minister of the Universal Life Church with over fifteen years of experience, and a Third Degree Wiccan Priestess has created and performed ceremonies meeting many tastes and needs. In addition to classes in Wicca and shamanism, she works with individuals to create rituals, ceremonies and soul retrievals that support their healing process and help them maintain balance once healing has been achieved.
Ritual can be used to mark important life transitions, such as marriage, birth, coming of age and becoming an elder. My interest and experience in this area is inspired by my anthropology background, which has given me a deep respect for the use of ritual both for healing and for building community.
In addition to her B.A. in Integrated Health Studies, Suzy is also a graduate of Amma School of Massage in San Francisco and the KcKinnen School of Massage in Oakland. She studied Hypnotherapy at Marylin Gordon's school of Hypnotherapy and takes couses with Mottin & Johnson Institute of Hypnosis.
