Mitchell brings a naturalness, simplicity, intuition, humor and good-heartedness to the activity and space of healing.  His background in metaphysical, Taoist and Buddhist paths, combined with an archetypal-Jungian perspective gives a broad view and understanding of healing and the soul’s path to awakening.  These elements are why his clients and students enjoy working and learning with him over decades.  His forthcoming book should be completed by Spring 2009.
