Laura’s lifelong spiritual path started as Lutheran in her family of origin in California. She moved to Sweden after graduating from Pomona College in 1980 and continued in that faith tradition, deepening into mystical Christianity.  During her 30s when Laura had four children, she facilitated morning pre-school groups for stay at home parents and assisted with confirmation youth groups through the Swedish church. She also trained as a Scandinavian naturopath, TCM acupuncturist and Psycho-Kinesiologist.

Loving the nomadic life, having moved often as a child, Laura encouraged her husband to accept corporate moves to Denmark, Greece and Japan. Stretching into multi-cultural being offered experience and perspective, such as being a Waldorf parent in Denmark, going to yoga daily in Greece and leading the PTA in Japan. She learned how to practice natural and energy medicine in different cultures.
