Carol Hern asks me to close my eyes and hold out my arm, and then resist while she tries to push my arm down. Each time she pushes, I resist. Then she asks me to step forward over the rocky terrain. She pushes, and my arm falls limply to my side. I’m resisting with all my strength, and sneak a peek to see she’s holding my arm down with only two fingers.
“It happens every time,” she says, and laughs. When I look down, I see I’m now standing just outside the markings of an ancient medicine wheel, made of stones forming a circle and extending into rays. Hern is using kinesiology to demonstrate the “energy” felt within the circle, which appears to dissipate immediately upon exiting the circle.
