The Elemental Cell: Fall in Love

We seek outside the wonders we carry inside us. ~Rumi


Where shall my soul dwell?  Where is my home?  Our physical home is a universe of trillions of invisible cells.  Cells carry within them the wisdom of the beginnings of life, how to survive and thrive. They are the sanctuary of your soul, spirit, dreams and  inner beauty.   

Meet your cells and discover how to create a wonder-filled loving and healing partnership with them.  This vast community of invisible individuals communicate, collaborate and connect to keep us alive with love.  

In this video I teach about the healing HUM. Here is more information on the hum for el cell.pd

Nurture self care, cell care, cell love

Jump into this unique offering and strengthen the divine partnership between you and your cells. It’s all about relationships – molecular, cellular, human and nature. 

And though there is a lot of information packed in each class, it is interactive with guided visualizations, embodiment practices, and a playbook for each class with writing and drawing prompts and other suggestions for tuning into your cells, nature and the elements. In other words, YOU get to engage with the information and the exercises during the class and at home.  

Each class has a focus on a particular part of the cell and how it and our bodies engage with the designated element.  Each element is associated with Nature and with a geometric shape as revealed by the microscopic shape of the mineral molecule for that element.  We are weaving science with design and how these aspects of life can help us know ourselves better, stay healthy and  open to more mysteries of life.  

Lesson 1 – AIR: The Divine Breath

Cell mitochondria and energy, the mind, the square shape, universal connections. 

The atoms in air connect us with each other, across time and place, now and in the future.

Our out breath becomes the trees and plants inhale.

Their exhale becomes our life-giving inhale.

The Live COURSE ended yet you can still register for the program – You can watch all the recordings , listen to the guided visualizations and have access to all the materials NOW at our El Cell Library page.  Plus email me with any questions and I may do a live zoom session for people who sign up after the live course is over.   This is part of the Cell Wisdom School.

Discover how to connect with your invisible ancestors and molecular allies to help you thrive, heal, and experience joy and wonder.  This program will delve into the molecular and symbolic elements associated with the Zodiac and Nature to interweave metaphysical symbols with science that you may find useful and illuminating.

According to the Desana people of the Amazon, the inherent stability of the natural world is rooted in a vast web of reciprocal relationships that have always existed between all elements of nature. 

A reciprocity exists in harmony with all the rest of the universe.


Why the Elements? If we look at the elements as their physical qualities, it’s easy to see how they relate to us as a cellular universe… Air (breath, mind), Earth (physical, body, senses), Water (fluids, emotions, soul) and Fire (energy, will, spirit), now to expand this to the metaphysical or mystical.  We can view the elements as portals of perception, the lens we use to view life.  Discover how they can take us deeper into our inner knowing, our sacred wisdom.  Come discover for yourself different ways of knowing you.  We delve into how our cells work along with their amazing design and hidden beauty plus how to tap into this for practical connections and intuitive wisdom.

Discover the exquisite design and architecture of each cell such as the vibrating fabric or webbing (seen here) that moves and vibrates and influences how each cell responds to information.  Just think at a cellular level we are string instruments, a simple hum or beautiful music can attune us cell by cell.

This journey takes us from the elements of stardust to our cellular soul. We will entertain an inquiry that may intrigue you – are our molecules and cells more than biology, can they be sources of sacred or metaphysical wisdom? Can molecules carry messages more than their chemistry?

What I hope you will get from The ELEMENTAL CELL program:

 It is my hope that this program will invite your imagination as well as educate.

Our next breaths, yours and mine, will sample the snorts, sighs, bellows, shrieks, cheers and spoken prayers of the prehistoric and historic past.~Harlow Shapely

Molecules awoke one morning to find that atoms were inside them, enfolded in their very being. Cells awoke one morning to find that molecules were actually inside them, as part of their being. And you might awake one morning and find that nature is a part of you, literally internal to your being.

 Why Me, Why Now?

I have been photographing cells and molecules through the microscope for more than 40 years and you would be amazed at what they reveal. I first used the microscope as a medical scientist for cancer research. Then I discovered that the microscope could be used for more than science. You will be surprised by the beauty and sacred wisdom hidden in your invisible cells and molecules. Come join us on this journey into inner space, your beauty and sacred wisdom. The elements came to me when I photographed 12 mineral salts related to the 12 signs of the Zodiac.  What a life-changing discovery!

I am feeling called now to share these wonders with you to awaken in you the awe I have felt on seeing what we are made of. The intelligence held within the trillions of invisible cells may surprise you. So many of us may be feeling so disconnected from ourselves, each other, and peace and safety, now more than ever it’s a blessing to be able to discover our essential elemental healing self.
