About Kathleen Bauer

I was in private practice full time for almost 10 years as a Functional Medicine Nutritionist, Clinical Herbalist and Therapeutic Chef specializing in autoimmune conditions and the gut-brain axis, before a near death experience in Alaska propelled me to reassess my beliefs with the interconnectedness of all things, where healing stems from, and the causes and conditions that manifest in illness, trauma, and pain.

I now recognize the deep interdependence between the healing of our core being to the healing of our oceans, forests, and all bioregions along with our direct environments (socially, ecologically, culturally, etc). I experience now that the persistence of disease states has so much more to do with a loss of self, of our identity, and our soul place than merely as a result of inflammatory foods and cytokines. I’ve expanded my awareness around the interplay of disease states, autoimmunity, and our energy meridians; the interconnection of all life and all energy; and the effect of our emotional, psychological, and spiritual well-being on our health generally and more specifically on our digestion and immune systems.

I still focus on the ways we choose to nourish ourselves, though now I see that nourishment goes beyond nutrition. I still promote anti-inflammatory nutritional choices and heartily endorse the benefits of collaboration between practitioners of Western, Eastern, functional, folk and energy medicine, and the seen and unseen world. To expand the support of myself and of my clients to get to the true root of health and life challenges, I’ve spent the last several years intensively studying shamanic practices, including Medical Qigong and Chinese spiritual medicine, Celtic and Brazilian practices of vocalization and sound, Japanese practices of energy healing, and diving deep into the psychology of anxiety and depression, trauma recovery, the grieving process, and mindfulness practices. We are such complex beings and diagnosis, recovery, healing, and our soul’s journey is equally complex and multifaceted.

My calling is to help you look within and heal your relationship with your soul, your body, and your health, to reconnect you to your inner truth and the environment, and to empower you to live with vitality an embodied life that truly lights you up from a place of knowing and self-confidence.

DEGREES AND CERTIFICATION TRAININGS

Medical Qigong Practitioner/Chinese Energetic Medicine Practitioner, 4 year Program, in Progress: The Center Place, Boulder CO (Anticipated completion 2021): Medical Qigong is an ancient form of Chinese energetic medicine, and is one of the four main branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), along with acupuncture.
