Retreat Guide Bios

Linda RutledgeLinda Rutledge “Biofield Tuning”
Linda has been practicing energy work for over 20 years. She is a Certified Biofield Tuning Practitioner. She was trained and certified by Eileen McKusick, author of “Tuning the Human Biofield: Healing with Vibrational Sound Therapy”. Linda is also a Reiki Master and an Integrated Energy Practitioner (IET). My energy work is based on Integrated Vibrational Therapy which is working within the human energy field with sound and vibration for healing and wellness. I believe the memories and experiences we have during our lifetime remain within our DNA blueprint. All physical, mental and emotional disorders can be perceived as "dissonance" in our energy fields. I use Biofield Tuning to diminish and resolve that dissonance and alleviate some of the corresponding physical, mental and/or emotional symptoms.
