Biography of Wendy Wywrot
Born and raised in Seattle. I grew up with middle class parents, living on
Lake Washington. I spent every summer playing and paddling about in the
water. I was an overachiever and always got good grades. I attended Seattle
University, completing the 2 year Honors Humanities Program and 4 year
Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration in 4 years total. From my Honors
classes, I have the equivalent of a minor in Philosophy and Literature.
After I graduated from college, I entered the private sector. Working in
various banks and corporations, I was very disillusioned by the behavior of
my co-workers. I had always thought that people 'grew up' when they
graduated from high school, or at least college, and that people would begin
to behave with maturity and integrity. Instead, I noticed that people like
that were few and far between. I knew that I was far from perfect myself.
After some time working in the private sector, I developed an interest in
becoming self- employed and working in the healing arts. In 1990, I entered
the year long training program Seattle Massage in School near Greenlake. (it
isn't there any more.) As I completed the program, I noticed that this
training had opened up for me all types of wonderful insights and interests
in how the human body, mind, and spirit interact and influence one another.
I became fascinated by the concept of healing, and how healing is a holistic
way of helping a person (as opposed to treating an illness or an injury,
where one focuses on just the presenting problem, not the whole person.)
At that time, in books and in the media, there was a lot of talk about the
Mind-Body connection. I immersed myself in studying this fascinating
concept. Our society was re-awakening to the very practical fact that our
emotions and our mind do influence our health and our well being
dramatically - a fact that we all know from common sense, but which
Cartesian dualism and the Western emphasis on Scientific Empiricism had
I decided that I wanted to be able to help my clients and loved ones using
several different healing modalities. I studied Hypnotherapy with 2
different excellent schools. I became a Reiki Master and an Ordained
Minster, able to provide Spiritual Guidance to my clients as well. As all of
this happened, I experienced my own healing journey, which has enable me to
assist my clients from a place of having undergone the same challenges.
I have continued my own healing journey, as I have spent 20 + years learning
additional effective therapies and techniques to assist others with their
own healing journeys.
I honestly wish to help others the way that past teachers and healers helped
me. That's what it's all about, paying it forward. I assist others to
free themselves from the bondage of cultural, societal and family imposed
limitations. I work with my clients to find ways help themselves. I provide
lots of resources and ideas. My calling is to empower them on their journey
towards actualizing the most joyful creative and effective parts of
themselves, so that they thrive and enjoy life passionately, so that they
can deal with life's challenges in effective and productive ways.
