Hey there!  So, it’s been a whirlwind of a ten days or so since I sent out that email about snakey sessions.

Thank you.  Really.  So much.  Like, a lot.  And then some more.  Thank you for all of your support.  So many of you wrote me kind words.  So many of you signed up for snakey sessions and came in with open minds.  I am so grateful.  I have the best clients.  Really.  Thank you.

That being said, I wanted to clarify a couple of things.

-No, I don’t have any actual snakes in the room with me.  So for those of you who are worried about that, you can exhale now.  I’m sorry I wasn’t clear on that in the first place.  I don’t even know if it’s legal to own a king cobra, but I certainly don’t have one in my possession.

-The pricing on all this got messy fast.  So basically it’s on a donation basis from here on out.  At least until we’re done with all 39 sessions.  $0 to $60.  I’m just grateful that people are showing up for me to practice with.

-I would love to have people come back for second and third snakey sessions, if they want to.  I’d love to hear your impressions of how this thing is progressing, if at all.  I just ask that you finish your first before signing up for the second.  Make sure it’s something you’re into before committing to a time someone else might want.

-Along the same lines, I’ve had some issues with people not showing up for sessions.  I know, they’re practice sessions.  I get that.  But I’m putting in the same amount of effort, care, and respect that I always put into my sessions.  I’m blocking out time and making sure I’m prepared mentally and physically to do the best work I can.  When you don’t show up, well, it makes me sad.  And frustrated.  So please, if you schedule a session, even a practice snakey session, show up for it.  Or at least call me to tell me you won’t be coming so I can head out to that barbeque I’m missing, instead of sitting in my office waiting for someone who’s not planning on being there.

-Snakey sessions are taking anywhere from 45 to 90 minutes, it seems.  I’m going to keep it at 2 hours so that I don’t feel rushed, but there it is.

-I’m thinking about putting together a survey or a questionnaire of some sort to see what you think of these snakey sessions, so be on the lookout for that.  In the meantime, if you’ve had a session and have any sort of feedback to share, I’d love to hear your thoughts.

-As of this moment, I’ve done 17 snakey sessions (with another 6 scheduled in the next couple weeks).  I feel like I’ve learned a lot.  I’ve come a long way.  And yet, there’s still a lot to be done.  Many more snakey sessions to be done before that magic 39 is reached.  So if you or anyone else you know wants to help me out with this project, I’d love to have you come in.

Lastly, I have to announce that this will be my last month practicing in Lafayette.  I’ve been extra conscious of where I’m investing my energy lately and I just can’t justify the drive up north every week.  I am so appreciative of every client I’ve worked with up there.  And that was my first office as I came out of Rolfing school, so it will always hold a special place in my heart.  But the time has come for my practice to be just in Denver.  Again, a big thank you to each and every person I’ve worked with in Lafayette over the last 3+ years.

That’s all I’ve got for you for now.  Thank you, thank you for your support as I experiment with this new energy in my life!
