Jon offers a different kind of healing which integrates years of professional training and direct personal experience. His early childhood experiences began a journey of discovery into Inner Light, energy and emotional healing and embodied spirituality.
When Jon was 5, he entered a deeply healing state of consciousness for the first time. He was playing with a wooden ruler when the light of the sun reflected off the ruler into his eyes. The flashes of light soon carried him into an imaginal world of energy and new possibilities. Years later he discovered that this was the same world that shamans, yogis, energy healers and spiritual teachers have often referred to. Jon began spending time each day exploring these experiences of inner light and inner journeys.
Energy Healing and Meditation
Years later, when was twenty, he began studying at the School of Actualism which had an extensive training program of awakening to Inner Light-Fire. This program helped him clarify his early experiences. Founded by Russell Paul Schofield, the school taught Inner Light-Fire Meditation which Dr. Schofield called Agni Yoga. Schofield was a clairvoyant teacher and healer who could see life energy as it moved through the body.
Jon studied and taught this form of meditation and performed energy healing for 18 years with the School, the last 3 of which he was president of the school.
