About Winter

Before realizing that my search for “Truth” was really a quest for deeper spiritual meaning, I snugly settled into an educational system that valued analytical reasoning. I chose to spend my time, my energy, and my mind building a career in the mental health field. Starting as a therapist for the Addiction Research Foundation in Toronto, I returned to the US to teach college level psychology classes and direct a continuing education program for mental health workers. But in the early ’80s my carefully designed world of psychology and mental health flipped upside down. Working as an analyst for the state attorney general, I had a precognitive experience that was so detailed and accurate that it changed the way I saw reality. more »»

Lately I wear many hats: author, consultant, educator, therapist, medical intuitive, permaculturist, gardner, “realist” and futurist. (The role of a futurist isn’t about making lots of accurate predictions, but more the act of stimulating creative thought about the future that, in turn, influences how we act today.) I strongly believe that we must think differently: co-operate with each other, share resources, and work together as we enter a time of diminishing resources.

The last few years I have made an attempt to understand why we have come to peak everything. (I think that I know “how” we got here, just not why.) Now I just try live with the fact that most of us don’t see it.

So, these days, instead of writing (or talking) about intuition, complimentary medicine, and magic, I write about energy descent, four season harvesting, the need for community, the need to prepare, and all matter of other things that are earth related.

And I’m up to my ears in chickens and green-house greens, a rooster who thinks the sun comes up at 3 AM, and so many projects I can’t begin to list them. The planet is still getting warmer, energy is still descending, and our economy is still tipping (big time).

The I Ching cautions us to not forcefully try to change things, rather we need to rely on the beneficial action of nature to correct things.

Perhaps that is all we can do, rely on nature.

here in Spruce Pine. (828)467-1064. Thanks

Thank you for contacting me, John. Your comment sparked several thoughts from me…as well as insight and a recent blog. I think you are looking for David Post.

Fascinating site and influence! I am journeying towards medical intuition and pranic healing along with massage and bodywork. Would you kindly offer me step one to take foot into the world of intuition?



Winter September 19, 2013 at 2:33 pm

Thank you, Nicholas. In answer to your question, our intuition is often drowned out by “thoughts, words, in general…mental noise.” Learn to focus on your breath and drop into a “wordless” space. Then sense/listen. Keep a journal of fleeting thoughts/hunches and pay attention to your dreams! Often intuition is a quick flash of insight, or a thought, we ignore.

We are fine. No doubt you read my post about our old doggies passing on. Our new doxie, Mika, certainly helps fill the void!

Hi Winter,

I was given your name by my dear friend Heather McIntosh. I told her that I was looking for some spiritual guidance, and she highly recommend you! I was hoping to connect with you at some point soon. Hope to hear from you,



Winter March 13, 2014 at 7:40 pm

I am looking forward to connecting with you. You can call me sometime this weekend at:(207) 929-6960.

Hello Winter,
I am very interested in attending one of your workshops. I would love to attend your 5-day workshop at TMI but, as a school teacher, I can’t take off whenever I want. So, I am looking at your 2-day workshops. What is the difference between your Chicago Medical Intuitions seminar “basic training” and the 2-day workshop you do at TMI? I am currently an energy healer, but need to keep moving forward, and this is where I ended up! Thanks so much! Ann

You were at the Monroe Institute just about 24 years ago in the spring when I spent 5 days there. You were amazing and I still have your book Intuitions (one of the few actual hard copy books I now own). Thank you for being you, Liz
