About Geri Ann

GeriAnn

You’re invited to follow my blog here. And, if you like pretty pictures with a bit of wit and wisdom, please follow me on Instagram. Many thanks!

So, about me. What exactly do I do?

I can help you get more freedom in your daily life.

“What do you mean by freedom, Geri Ann?” 

I mean:

  • More freedom to help you feel less stressed, more often.
  • More freedom and confidence to be the “real” you.
  • More freedom to experience more frequent feelings of joy and positivity and satisfaction and meaning.
  • More freedom to show up and shine more often.
  • More freedom to navigate the crappy stuff without feeling paralyzed or getting emotionally capsized.
  • More freedom to know that you are a powerful being with unique gifts and experiences.
  • The world needs you to be the real you, ASAP. Stop comparing, complaining and criticizing (especially yourself). Let’s get you out of your own way and get crackin’!

How the heck can that happen?

I offer a variety of services that can get you moving in the right direction lickety-split. I’m a committed listener who embodies joy, harmony… and keeping it REAL. I promise to be FULLY PRESENT WITH YOU. You will laugh and you may very well cry (I have plenty of tissues!). Both are great ways to emotionally release. I partner with you and your intuition to pick the right path/approach. Heck, you likely already know what you need. 

What do I know about freedom? Oh, I’ve had my share of messy bits over the years. I continue to use a variety of tried and tested tools to rebalance, reset and renew on a daily basis. 

Breast Cancer and Recovery. Life-Changing Surgery. Morning Catastrophizing. Not Enough-Ness. Fear of Running Out of Time. And, of course, 2020! Sheesh.

I have found ways to reduce stress and regularly feel more gratitude, joy and freedom – even during some of my darkest times.

I have guided – and continue to guide – others to:

  • Cultivate insights
  • Clarify current situations
  • Gain new perspectives
  • Move and honor their bodies
  • Regulate their breathing
  • Improve concentration of mind
  • Nurture their spirit
  • Relax their nervous system
  • Find the funny
  • More deeply connect with Mother Earth and Source
  • Feel safe sharing hopes, dreams and fears
  • Celebrate ALL wins!

Choose from practical and evidence-based coaching and movement approaches or the more mystical and mysterious Meditation, Reiki and Tarot. A solo session might appeal, but many times a “mash-up” package works best!

Community Theatre Actor and Volunteer: I have been involved in theatrical productions in the community for many years, treading the boards with Essex Community Players, Girls Nite Out Productions, Lyric Theatre Company and Shelburne Players.

How did I get started?
My first conscious memory was coming down the stairs of my home and stopping on the landing to look around, where I “saw” my surroundings for the first time. It was as if up until then I had been sleeping and at that moment a light switched on. Inside my head, a “narrator” type of voice announced, “Here I am again. I wonder what it will be like this time.” My childhood self responded by quizzically tilting her head, pausing for a moment and then continuing down the stairs. To this day, I have never forgotten that voice. Since then, I have experienced many interesting synchronicities and communications and have maintained the unwavering confidence that we are a part of something so much bigger, that many of us have been here before and may well be here again. It is my experience that love, gratitude and forgiveness are the keys for a healthy and happy life.

The catalyst that opened a door to a myriad of possibilities for helping to  support and guide others was my first Tarot reading in 1990.

Since then, I’ve engaged in almost 30 years of independent immersion work, collaborative group study and classwork, extended workshops led by Tarot luminaries Mary K. Greer, Rachel Pollack, Marcus Katz and James Wells, and conference coursework including (but not limited to): Tarot-related esoteric classes, archetypes, astrology, comparative mythology, Health and Wellness Coach Training with Wellcoaches®, dream interpretation, studying with Colleen Alexander, Brett Bevell, Satya Brat, Zoe and Zeus Higgins, Xena Jacob, Bernice Kelman, John McConnell, Eileen McKusick, Deena Metzger, Tari Prinster, Shulamith and Kirk White, energy anatomy, philosophy, psychology, psychic development, qigong, certified Reiki training, shamanic work, symbolism, Tai Chi Chuan, Tibetan singing bowl training, biofield tuning training, Transcendental Meditation practice, world religions and yoga.
