About Asha

Since childhood I have been drawn to the spiritual and interested in that which cannot be seen, felt or heard with our normal senses.  And even though my abilities seem subtle or quiet compared to some, I am grateful for the subtle awareness and sensitivities that I have cultivated throughout the years.  I have learned to appreciate the quietness and stillness that underlies all of life.  Since studying Esoteric Acupuncture 5 years ago, my life has transformed in such a beautiful way.  Even though these times are already supportive for inner growth, and in fact are pushing us to accelerate the evolution of our consciousness, I feel that by living and breathing the New Encoding Patterns of Esoteric Acupuncture, the structure of my life has crystallized around me and I have awakened within it.  There is power in using these patterns every day on my clients while I sit in the other side of the room and meditate with them.  I love that I get to spend my days in meditation and prayer.

My personal practices include breathwork, yoga, dance, meditating and journaling.  When I am not in my office seeing clients, my daily life is spent chopping wood and carrying water as I happily tend to my family, pets, garden and home. 

Why I am teaching Esoteric Acupuncture:

While meditating on New Year’s Eve 2017, I received the inner calling to seek out and study with Dr. Sankey.  I had been in practice for 10 years, and was fortunate to attend his Foundations and Advanced classes in 2018 in Boulder.   For those of you who have studied with him and know him, we can all agree that he is a true embodiment of what he has written in all his volumes – a living encyclopedia of esoteric wisdom, passionate about wellness and living from the heart, incredibly psychically gifted, and warm and charismatic, filling the room with his sparkling heart energy field.  He is truly a one-of-a-kind, special human being and how wonderful it is that he has shared so many years teaching and writing, and now with making music. 

When Dr. Sankey walked into the room that first class and started talking, something clicked immediately within me, and I knew I could practice Esoteric Acupuncture.  It was as if I had received the direct transmission that gave me the permission I needed, and we hadn’t even worked on one another yet.  Even though I had owned the books, I somehow couldn’t launch it into practice before then.  What a life-changing gift that was. 

Fast forward to after I took the workshops.  Every acupuncturist I worked on wanted to know what I was doing as they felt the difference, and then three of them went on to take Foundations in 2019 just before Dr. Sankey retired from teaching.   

By 2020, I knew I wanted to carry on this work because of how important it is, and how vital it is that more practitioners have access to it, especially now.  Originally, in my mind, the title was “From the books to the table, bringing the work of Dr. Mikio Sankey alive in your practice and your life.”

So, I am teaching Esoteric Acupuncture to keep it alive and growing, first and foremost.  Secondly, I am choosing to do it in the form of a holistic retreat because there is an after-glow that is created after spending the day together and it only makes sense to be able to relax, share nourishing food together and connect more deeply with the ease of all of us being together in one place. I have since realized, it will be called an Esoteric Acupuncture Immersion. 

I want these long weekends to nourish us as practitioners so that we return home rejuvenated and overflowing with goodness.  Although Dr. Sankey is not in our presence, we each bring our own light, our gifts and loving hearts.  By day 3, everybody is glowing and the space is shining so bright with all of us together.  There is great power in us gathering and building community with one another.  I organize these retreats with great care, humility and a lot of heart.  Dr. Sankey has given me his blessing to teach this Foundations Level course, and hopefully, as I grow as a teacher, Advanced won’t be too far away.
