Nearing Regina, extending to the Manitoba border, big agro assaults you. The tableland has been entirely given over to vast operations where nary a human vestige can be found. Only transports ply the highway east of Regina. Three miles north of the Trans Canada heading towards the jewel of the Qu’appelle Valley, I looked around 360 degrees and could see not a house, not a tree, not a haystack, not a bail – round or square, not even a car: nada. Is this where Al Gore’s predictions have come true? Vast poisoned land with nary a bird?

To my huge relief, human scale returned, along with water, as hedges and marshes defined the prairie of southern Manitoba. Ahhh, some ducks and geese at last! Little towns, little farms, trucks, friendly people to chat to…A dinky toy scale world that I cherished, a world where community wrapped you in warmth at the corner gas station. I soaked my roots in the area where my great grandfather pulled oxen from a swamp full of mosquitos.

In the history of the open land, the women often went mad, alone on those unending stretches with no other farmhouse in sight. Scale affects our well being, as any architect knows…

About jm

Jane Moody offers advanced modalities of energy treatment, bodywork and counselling. A dynamic group of skills, gathered though extensive training (1800 hours of instruction in health therapies in addition to her BA.), can heal the roots of psychological suffering that prevent a satisfying life. The inspiration behind this work began in my early twenties after earning a B.A. from Vassar College in New York. I wanted to study both Medicine and Comparative Religion. I didn't do either but the interest stayed fresh. In the late 80's, I began my studies with a 16 weekend training leading to a certificate in Gestalt Therapy. A year later, I found a way to combine both earlier interests when I read Barbara Brennan's book, Hands of Light. I studied at her school for one year (1989/90) but decided against returning for family and personal reasons. That year, I had also completed a year's study in anatomy and physiology at Dalhousie University. By taking a taped course in "Awakening the Light Body", I was able to keep my knowledge growing. A few years later, I learned the bodywork of the Lightbody - "Flow Alignment and Connection". The next fall, it became possible to attend The School of Enlightened Healing in New York City (now in Asheville NC) and I graduated from there, 3 years later, with certification as a "Hands-on Healer" (1997). My practice began with Flow Alignment and gradually incorporated the new knowledge gained at this healing school in New York. Short weekend courses in Japanese Acupressure and Myofascial Release broadened my scope of bodywork techniques. In June of 2001, I graduated from A Society of Souls, Jason's Shulman's three year School for health professionals in Integrated Kabbalistic Healing. This powerful work is now the center of a range of healing skills that I bring to my clients. I live in East Chester, Nova Scotia with offices there and in Halifax, as well as a long distance practice by telephone.
