Barbara Stone is a workshop leader, psychotherapist in private practice, and a professor at Energy Medicine University, a distance learning program. She is fluent in both English and Spanish. The topic of healing is very close to her heart, as she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1991. Her first book, Cancer As Initiation: Surviving the Fire (1994, Open Court Publishing Company) is the autobiographical account of her holistic approach to recovery from this illness and was the basis of her doctoral dissertation on the emotional factors influencing cancer survival. After recovering from cancer, her clinical work took an unexpected turn as clients began to bring earthbound spirits and past life trauma into her therapy office. Since nothing in her education taught her how to deal with these issues, she searched the literature base and sought help from colleagues. Her second book, Invisible Roots: How Healing Past Life Trauma Can Liberate Your Present, is the result of her phenomenological research into these unseen realms and the protocols she developed to help free her clients by ministering to the wounds of past incarnations and people no longer in physical bodies. Her colleague and friend Bert Fellows came up with name “Soul Detective” for her work because it uses muscle testing to find out how the spiritual realm is impacting the client.
Barbara holds a doctorate in clinical psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute in Carpinteria, California and is a Diplomate in Comprehensive Energy Psychology (DCEP). She has been an ordained minister in the Universal Life Church since 2002. A member of the American Society of Dowsers, she is also a Certified Laughter Yoga Leader, as laughter really is the best medicine!
She is an avid gardener, connecting with the energy of beautiful Mother Earth through growing flowers, fruits, and vegetables, and is also a musician, potter, and grandmother.
As part of her mission to spread these healing tools around the globe, Dr. Stone travels and teaches in other countries.
