I am one of the co-founders of Awakening Ministries and at one of our retreats we had several Splankna practitioners attend. I wanted to better understand it, so I tried a session and it had a huge impact on my life. A few months later, we had one of the Splankna founders join our leadership team for Awakening and I decided that it would be best if I understood more about Splankna as we were deciding to offer it as a follow-up care for our retreats. After attending the level one training and seeing the life change that came out at it, I was completely convicted that God was calling me into this line of work. I had been a pastor for ten years, and with running a ministry designed toward healing, I felt like this was a great tool for my tool belt and complimented all of my other ministries very well. I am now a master level Splankna practitioner and love working with women, children, and couples in Northern Colorado out of my home in Berthoud.
