Who We Are

zoe lotus healing arts

ZOE Greek / pronunciation – zo-ay. “life giving”, the
anointed one…

The LOTUS (Sanskrit padma) is one of the most poignant representations of Buddhist teaching. It refers to the complete peace and purification of body, speech and mind, and the blossoming of spirit. The roots of a lotus are in the mud, the stem grows up through the water, and the heavily scented flower lies pristinely above, basking in the sunlight. This pattern of growth signifies the progress of spirit… from the primeval mud of materialism, through the waters of experience, and into the bright sunshine of enlightenment. Though other water plants also bloom above the water, it is only the lotus, which owing to the strength of its stem, regularly rises eight to twelve inches above the surface.

About Beth:

I grew up in central Florida amongst palm trees, sandy beaches, and thunderstorms. I have lived in Seattle for ten years and now it’s the mountains, forests, and ocean of the Pacific Northwest that have my heart.
My undergraduate studies were filled with my love of writing and interdisciplinary studies. I began my journey in the healing arts twenty years ago as a bodyworker, graduating from the Florida College of Natural Health as a massage therapist. I continued my education in various modalities including neuromuscular therapy, myofascial release, structural integration, prenatal massage, Cranial-Sacral Therapy, and Yoga as Movement therapy. I loved the medicine of touch. I yearned for more. In 2000 I enrolled at the Florida College of Integrative Medicine and graduated summa cum laude, with a Bachelor’s of Professional Health Studies and Masters of Science in East Asian Medicine four years later. I especially enjoy working with women and have deepened my studies and practice in the specialty of holistic gynecology and women’s energetic wisdom. I am honored to have studied directly with Dr. Rosita Arvigo in the techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy and with Tami Lynn Kent, a pioneer in the field of women’s health and creator of Holistic Pelvic Care.

I have two amazing children that light up my life. Mothering has been a blessed path of spirit led medicine for me, illuminating my edges and inviting me to expand my heart and my reach in ways I never knew possible.  My partner is the love of my life.  He is my best friend. He makes me laugh and holds me accountable to my hopes and dreams. We are gifted with a blended family, four kids in all and one new grandchild.

May my mission honor the lessons of my fellow sisters and teachers who have shared my road through transformation, helped to heal my grief, and inspire my work. May my mission continue to be a work of service and self- care, celebration, and ceremony.
