We all come into our mortal existences to learn lessons and to assist in the evolution of our souls and our species. With each birth, we are given the opportunity to learn from the mistakes and successes of our past lives. For most of us, this occurs on a very unconscious level. There are those among us that are here to continue their learning as well as to help bring forth information to assist with the evolution of our species
and to assist in healing the planet. Our planet and its inhabitants are at a critical point in their journey, much healing is required and many healers are required to assist in the process.
It is my goal to assist you in achieving your divine purpose for incarnating, to enable you to be of service to others and to live a peaceful existence. As part of that goal, I am here to help bring forth the Light needed for healing you and the planet. This Light, or Reiki, has the ability to transform lives and free us from the dis-ease that prevents us from reaching our fullest potential. From as early in my life as I can remember,
I have dreamt of being a healer and knew it was my destiny. Aided with the power of Reiki, my spiritual practice and my focused intention, that dream is now being realized. I see how everything in my life has led me to this point and now I feel a responsibility to assist others on their journey.

WHY I DO THIS WORK
Some of our deepest wounds are sexual. Often these wounds are so deep or so old that we don't even know they exist. They shape our lives, control our emotions and cloud our judgment. People often think that wounds only come from bad experiences. The experience is simply the experience; neither good nor bad.
The experience could be a hurtful statement from an adult figure when we're young, fear of a vengeful unloving God as taught by a religion or a child's misunderstanding of an ordinary experience. The wound is what we take away from the experience. The wound could be as simple as a belief that "sex is bad", your sexual behavior is "wrong" or that masturbation is "sinful". Some wounds are, of course, from obvious traumatic emotional experiences. Sexual wounds require sexual healing.
This is what I'm offering ... sexual healing in a safe environment.
Please understand that in doing this Sacred healing work, I'm healing some of my deepest wounds in the process. It's been said that our earliest wounds determine our life's work. This is certainly the case for me. I was born in a small, racist town in Alabama and raised in the Baptist church. I spent much of my childhood praying for my desire to masturbate to cease because the church told me it was wrong. In later
years when I recognized my attraction to men, the church was there again to tell me I was going to hell because God couldn't love me for that.
As an adult who has expanded his spiritual views and is following a spiritual path, I have come to recognize that those teachings, while well intentioned, were very harmful to my psyche. God (the Universe, Spirit, Allah, Buddah, Love, Light, Creator, Goddess ... whatever name you call it by) is simply an energy and not an old gray haired man sitting in the clouds and passing judgment. The energy is unconditional Love.
In short, God IS Love. All religions agree on this. How then can anything but love be associated with that entity? It is my desire to help those I work with learn to love everything about themselves and to allow pleasure (the feeling of Love entering the body) to come to them in many forms ... unconditionally.
Some men wonder if this experience makes them bi or gay. The answer is no. It doesn't make you anything. Straight, bi and gay are simply labels. They limit us by their very nature. As humans we judge and label things in an attempt to understand them. Pleasure has no gender, it simply is. So ultimately we are either open to pleasure or we aren't. When we can simply "BE" and accept pleasure in whatever form
the Universe offers it to us, that's when we are truly living. We are truly accepting life at its fullest. That's what I hope this experience helps you to do, open and accept pleasure without judgments.
In 1999, I took a trip to India with a friend to see one of India's most revered Avatars, Sri Sathya Sai Baba. To prepare for the trip, my friend gave me a video called "Aura of Divinity". It was a documentary on Sai Baba created by PBS in 1979. It
is so powerful that I transcribed it and am including it on my site. Click here to read it. By simply being in his presence, he activated something within me that had long been dormant. When he looked at me, I believe he called forth my inner healer and forever changed my life. Shortly after returning, I left my job and a 16-year career in data processing to travel the world and "find myself."
In early 2000, I began a five-month travel experience. While I was in Australia I took a course called "The Melchizedek Method". This training was about learning to activate my Lightbody and using the "Hologram of Love Merkaba". According to "The
Keys of Enoch", the Merkaba is an interdimensional counter-clockwise rotational vehicle of Light, Spirit and Body. While that sounds pretty out-there, the basis of the training is activating the Merkaba for healing work based upon it being composed of unconditional love. In essence, it creates a space where healing can occur at all levels.
In January of 2001 I decided to deepen my yoga practice and become an Integral Yoga instructor. The instructor training was a month long intensive held at a remote retreat in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. During this training, I injured my back. One of the other students gave me a Reiki treatment and I was actually able to feel the energy flowing into me. This was unusual for me since I was skeptical about energy
work at the time. I knew from that moment that I had to learn how to channel this energy as well.
Shortly after returning from the Yoga training, I received my Level I attunement from a Seattle Reiki Master, Barbara McDaniel. This allowed so many amazing experiences to enter my life and confirmed for me that I was indeed on the right path. I knew almost immediately that I was destined to become a Reiki Master because it would allow me to bring two passions in my life together...healing and teaching. A year later
I received my Level II attunement from Barbara. In October of 2004, I reached my goal and was attuned to the Master Level by a wonderful woman from Oregon named Mary Grace. In August of 2007, I took the next step on my Reiki path and was attuned as a Karuna Reiki Master.
Also as a result of the Yoga training, I was guided to begin a course of study with the Self-Realization Fellowship founded by Paramahansa Yogananda. The teachings are an ancient yogic system known as Kriya Yoga. This three and a half year course teaches meditation techniques and a system for right living. This course has deepened my understanding of life, living and the afterlife.
In 2002 I began working as a personal assistant/office
manager/chiropractic assistant to a Seattle based chiropractor specializing in
energy medicine. By being both a patient and a student of this man, I learned a
great deal about how the body works both physically and energetically. Through
my work with him I was able to clear a food allergy that I had to corn and
wheat. I learned that allergic reactions are just symptoms of deeper issues and
not permanent conditions that we must endure forever. Just like our bodies can
manifest these problems (any dis-ease), they can also release the cause and move back into a
state of wholeness, peace and balance…but it takes work and time. These issues
don’t just start over-night and they can’t be “cured” in a day.
In July of 2003, I began a Vision Quest under the guidance of a local Ojibwa Shaman called SilverWolf. A Vision Quest is a Shamanic initiation ceremony. While the actual ceremony lasted only one week, the Vision continues to unfold for four years afterwards. In this ceremony I learned that I sit upon many paths and that I am supposed to bring parts from each path together to develop the healing work that I incarnated
to do. The work I'm currently doing is a manifestation of the teachings from all the paths.
The Native Americans teach that we all carry "medicine". When we follow these teachings and learn about our medicines, we can then use them to heal ourselves and others. These medicines are shared when we do healing work together. If I carry medicine that your spirit needs, when we spend time with each other, you can be healed by that medicine...and I by yours. It's like taking aspirin. It stops the headache but you don't
In October 2005 I began my erotic bodywork practice out of
the small second bedroom of our apartment. After trying to find an erotic
therapist that met my needs and desires and being constantly disappointed, I
began to notice that my experience wasn’t unique. In scanning through personal
ads on Craigslist I noticed a large number of “straight identified” guys who
were seeking safe, erotic touch from another man. I saw ads for guys wanting to
explore assplay from someone who knew how to help them. I knew there was a need
that wasn’t being met and in taking a long hard look at myself and my skill
set, I felt that I had to be the answer that I sought.
Once I realized that there was enough interest in my work
for me to build a practice on, I threw myself into it fully. I took my existing
social skills, service experience, sexual skills, bodywork and energy training and
then found a space to work in. I certainly had no idea how much it was going to
change my life. Over the years I’ve moved to bigger and better spaces because
my needs have grown along with my practice. I’ve also been adding new areas of
study and additional energy techniques to my work to be able to accommodate the
needs of my clients as well as to make me a better practitioner. I’m always
looking for new ways to grow personally and professionally while still staying
true to my desire to be of service to those I work with.
In March of 2006, I began studying "left-handed" Tantra with Jay Craver. This branch of Tantra teaches us that "everything is an experiment". To heal some of our deepest wounds, we must observe everything that happens with the context of our experiment. This experiment could be as broad as one's life but in the case of my work, it is confined to a single session. Another Tantric teaching is that "Deep pleasure
brings deep healing." That is a principle which I have been living my whole life and is the base of the work I do in each session.
:: JOURNEY UPDATE: 12/17/15 ::
In 2009 I began an energy training class taught by Lynda
Caesara called “The Fundamentals of Energy”. This was an amazing class taught
by an amazing woman. She began teaching this course because she had noticed how
poorly people in general were managing their energetic manners and felt called
to share her knowledge. In the physical realm, we give people their personal
space by managing our physical bodies so that we’re not in their space. We have
to do the same thing in the energy realm so that we aren’t unconsciously in the
energy field of others and so that others aren’t manipulating our energy field.
Having been through this training, I can now see how most of us violate the
energy field of others as a way to get attention or how we unconsciously take
on others energy in an attempt to help them.
During the 3 years that I was enrolled in this course, I
learned so much about being fully embodied in the physical realm. The basis of
those teachings are shared on my blog (with Lynda’s permission). It’s a
multistep process that Lynda called “The Basics”. http://peacefulmichael.blogspot.com/2010/04/awakening-grounding.html Each
step is simple to read and understand but learning to hold them constantly as
we engage life is where the work is. The training I received in the overall
course has really helped me with my work in ways that I could never have
imagined before starting the course.
While in the class, I was introduced to ‘The Deer Tribe
Metis Medicine Society’ (https://www.dtmms.org/) based out of Arizona. They are
a shamanic based group that includes advanced energy awareness and usage
training to non-Native Americans. I was introduced to the group due to a
ceremony they were holding in the Seattle area. The ceremony is known as
“Shamanic Dearmoring”. (http://shamanicdearmoring.com/) I completed it in February of 2011. It turned
out to be one of the most powerful and profound experiences that I had ever
done and still is. I highly recommend it to anyone on a spiritual path who is
willing to do the internal work necessary to evolve and grow personally.
The premise behind the ceremony is that from the time we are
born, we begin creating energetic armor around our bodies to protect ourselves
before we are able to consciously defend ourselves. Unfortunately this armor
blocks the free flowing movement of our energy and our erotic energy in
particular. The two week ceremony is the process of breaking up that armor,
removing it from our energy field and getting the energy flowing again. It was
intense, powerful, challenging and deeply healing.
That ceremony led me to begin exploring the Deer Tribe
teachings more deeply. I enrolled in a small study group held in the Seattle
area by one of their local teachers who comes up from Portland. Her name is
Mateo Swan and I spent just over three years studying under her. I learned more
about what the Deer Tribe refers to as “the human luminosity field”. Our
luminosity encompasses the auric field as well as the energetic components
within that field. Reading all of that information is a process they call
“gleaning” and allows the person doing the gleaning to access information on
the person that the person isn’t aware of consciously. I traveled to Phoenix in
September of 2011 to learn to read the luminosity. It was a two week class that
they call “Aura Perception and Analysis”. It was taught by the leader of the
Deer Tribe, Harley “SwiftDeer” Reagan. When he sits in his power, he is known
as Thunder Strikes. It was a blessing to get to spend this amount of time with
him as he passed in 2014.
The process of gleaning gives data about the person rather
than personal information. For example by gleaning you I could find out what
energy structure your system uses, how much armor you have on your physical
body, where your assemblage point is and a whole host of other such details. It
is not about mind-reading however or getting into your personal Akashic
records. It’s more akin to how you might look at someone and see that “they
look like they’re about 35 years old, 5 foot 8, 150 pounds, Caucasian descent,
etc” but it’s done on the energy field and not the physical body. You might
think of it as me getting data points on where you are in this moment without
getting into how or why you arrived at those points.
The true benefit of such a reading is to be able to record the
information today, let you do whatever personal transformation and inner work you
choose and then have another reading done in a year or more and see how your
work has helped you to evolve and grow or not depending upon the results. It’s
not something that I believe I excelled at because it is incredibly complicated
to do and there are tons of data points within our field so it all takes a
while to do a full reading. I do however use the technique to connect with each
client energetically to allow my unconscious intuition to be guided by that
connection so that my system can help guide or be guided by your system.
About a year after I completed Shamanic Dearmoring, I began
feeling called to explore the Deer Tribe teachings more fully. I ended my
training with Lynda and became a student of Mateo Swan’s monthly “Energy
awareness and evolutionary training”. Mateo is a senior teacher from the Deer
Tribe and lives in the Pacific Northwest. The classes really focused on how to
use the “Wheels and Keys” that are taught by the Deer Tribe to facilitate my
own personal growth and thus speed my evolutionary journey. These wheels and
keys are informational charts and techniques passed down to the Tribe from
generations before them and from the non-physical beings that support their
tribe. They are very powerful tools that I believe helped me to grow in some
amazing ways. I trained under her for 3 years at which point I either had to
become an apprentice to the Deer Tribe or exit the training. As I didn’t feel
called to become an apprentice to the tribe, I ended my training.
In 2010 some of my regular clients who trusted me
began to ask me for more non-massage type offerings. The first time a client
asked me if I would flog him my response was “Let me go learn how to do it and
I’ll be happy to.” That request sent me on a journey of exploration that has
changed my life and the lives of many of my clients. When I went to my mentor,
Jay Craver, and asked him to flog me and teach me about it, little did I know
what path it would put me on. I absolutely loved the sensations of it and knew
that I had tapped into something amazing.
From there, I sought out more training for more things from
a wide range of people. I attended a week long BDSM based camp out hosted by
The Center for Sex Positive Culture. The event is called “Paradise
Unbound”. I’ve been three times and have
loved it more each time. I’ve met some amazing teachers and learned so much about
the edgier world of kink and BDSM. I’ve also attended countless small one off
classes held at the CSPC and learned a great deal there. For the past three
years I’ve attended an event held in Portland called “Kinkfest”. At both of these
events, there are multiple days of presenters doing 60 or 90 minute classes on
every imaginable topic. The evenings at the events are spent in the playspace
practicing what you learned and having fun. I’ve learned so much about this
world from presenters and by having more skilled practitioners work me over.
After a year of learning, receiving sessions and slowly
beginning to feel comfortable offering these services, I added another side to
my professional practice. I began offering BDSM/kink/Domination sessions and
started a second site for it called MaleEroticDungeon.com.
I chose to have dungeon in the title because it was a word which had conjured
up uncomfortable feelings for me before I understood what it was all about. I decided
to press into that edge within myself and for those seeking my services and
have the word be a part of my life.
Offering BDSM services and experiences has been such a joy
for me and it gives me a change of pace from my bodywork practice. I love and
adore both the softer bodywork sessions and the creative BDSM sessions. I
especially love those that are a mixing of both. Sometimes it’s as simple as
someone wanting to be blindfolded and restrained to the table while being
rubbed or it’s an intense BDSM impact play session that ends with a cool down
period of bodywork or soft erotic touch. Please be sure to read about my BDSM
philosophy on my dungeon site for more info on how I approach these
In February of 2013 I took a class called “Integrated Thai table
massage” from Eric Spivack at www.soaringcranemassage.com.
This class was, as the name implies, learning to do Thai massage on a massage
table as opposed to a floor mat which is typically used in Thai massage. The
class taught me some Thai techniques that I can easily integrate into the
bodywork I do on the table. The thing with Thai massage in general is that it
isn’t very erotic. In fact, it is typically done with clothes on for everyone.
While that can be very functional, it isn’t the zone I focus my work on so I’ve
had to adapt some of the techniques and put my own sexy spin on it for my
In September of 2015 I took a second class from Eric called
“Acupressure points for bodyworkers”. This class was about using acupressure
points around the body to achieve desired results. Our bodies have hundreds of
these points which lie on the energy meridians which run through our bodies.
Meridians are simply energetic pathways which connect organs, joints and energy
centers throughout the body. The acupressure points are the places where these
pathways terminate or return. It’s another subtle tool that I have under my
belt that I’m still learning to work with. In addition to the points I learned
in this class, there are a series of acupressure points that I learned during
the Shamanic Dearmoring class for getting erotic energy moving. I will
sometimes use these acupressure points during a session when I discover
blockages. In essence, stimulating these acupressure points will help get the
energy along that meridian moving again to nourish the organs and energy system
like it would if your body where operating at peak condition without any
blockages or wounds. It’s certainly not a permanent fix but it does get things
flowing again to allow the body to heal itself. Repeating this process along
with other work will eventually allow the body to heal that issue (emotional
trauma, physical injury, spiritual wounding, mental blocks).
In June of 2013 I began a year-long Tantric based training
program with 4 friends/mentors/fellow Sacred Intimates in the Seattle area. One
of the facilitators was Jay Craver who I mentioned above as one of my original
mentors. The program was called “Sacred Intimacy through a tantric lens”. We
met five times for 5 days at a time throughout the year. The purpose of the
training was to share with us some tools, techniques and processes for doing
Sacred Intimate (erotic therapy) work by using the principles of Tantra as the
base for the work. Not only did we get to practice being the practitioner with
the other students but we also filled the role of client where we were tasked
with working on our own issues. It was a very powerful experience and I met
some amazing practitioners from around the country. I’ve maintained contact
with them as a way of creating a network of practitioners. I have clients from
around the globe who have traveled to Seattle for their work and found me while
in Seattle so now I can refer them to someone in their area (hopefully) who can
help facilitate their work in their home area. If you happen to know of a
Sacred Intimate in your area that you have worked with and trust, I’d love to
hear about this person for my reference. Apparently we’re harder to find that I
would think so I’m grateful to you for any referral that you might have.
In October of 2014 I moved my practice into my first commercial
space. It was such a frightening yet exciting thing for me to do. For the first
9 years of my practice, I had rented apartments and homes and never really been
able to do anything but paint and put up shelves. With the commercial space, I’m
able to change it into anything that I want and any way that I want. While I
will be working on it to make it better and better for the foreseeable future,
it is a labor of love. My goal is to be able to create the ideal work space for
both sides of my practice and make it a space that I can rent out to others (practitioners
and individuals) for their private use. My intention with the space is to make
it “edgier than a massage studio but softer than a dungeon”. I’m calling the
studio “The Crow’s Nest Escape” because the physical structure is reminiscent
of a large nest sitting on top of a building and “crow” is an ally of mine in
the Shamanic realms. I also see the space as a place to escape the reality of
everyday life and slip into another realm of fun.
:: END OF 12/17/15 UPDATE ::
Doing this work has really changed me over the years. It hashelped me to look at the fears, judgments and shame that I had been holding
onto about my own sexuality and spirituality. I know that I am a much better
person because of the work and I’m certain that translates into me being a
better practitioner…and that starts the cycle all over again. I’m often humbled
by the transformations that I see in those I work with and the stories I hear.
I know that I’m not “fixing” anyone but I am opening and holding space to allow
healing to occur and working with each client to help them move into that space
so that they can do the healing themselves. It is an amazing and subtle process
and I am honored to be able to be a part of it. This work fulfills, excites and
delights me because it is so dynamic and fills such a need to help others on a
personal level. I’m thrilled to be able to offer a safe space for men to come
to learn, explore and grow by simply learning the art of receiving.
All my life I've been clairsentient but never understood it until I began doing healing work. This gift means that I can psychically sense what is needed for healing and use my intuition to guide me in bringing that forth. I rely on that guidance, assistance from my spirit guides and from the guides that surround my clients to create each session specifically for each client. I also rely on my intuition to help me determine who
I should and should not work with. Love will always show us the way.
Physically, I'm a 5'-9", 155 pound, Caucasian, with blue eyes and shaved-off dishwater blonde hair. I have a slender build, soft skin and a very sensuous touch. I enjoy hiking and the outdoors so I'm healthy and fit. I am HIV Negative. Click here
to see my latest test results. I am a gentle, peace-loving, non-violent soul who has recognized his calling in life and is following that path: the path of the Sacred Intimate.
I am experienced in finding and filling the needs of those I work with. My spiritual practices of Reiki, Tantra, shamanism and Yoga have given me the base for the work I do. My training in energy use, bodywork and Body Electric have given me some of the tools that I use. My innate sense of touch, intuitive guidance and sexual experience empower me with an ability to use the healing gift of touch and the power of Reiki
to bring forth transformational experiences in those I work with.
Thank you for taking the time to read the information contained in my site. May the Universe shower you with healing love and may you always be guided to your highest good.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve
the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
