About Michael of Oakland Park

I provide a sacred and safe environment for healing, learning, and transformation.

During our time together and depending upon your needs, I will utilize some or all of the following:

Creativity, Divination, Energy Cleansing, Energy Bodywork, Inner Space Clearing, Liquid Life Process, Non-Intrusive Bodywork, Personal Organization Techniques, Sacred Circle, Sacred Intimacy, and Shamanic Healings

As a Two-Spirited person, I believe that the body simultaneously houses a masculine spirit and a feminine spirit -- and as a result, I  manifest both masculine and feminine spiritual qualities.  This may be seen as two contrasting human spirits -- such a Warrior and Clan Mother, two contrasting animal spirits -- such as Eagle and Coyote, or simply as the ability to understand and work with both masculine and feminine energies.

Native American scholars now believe that many tribes once revered Two-Spirits, viewing them as a third gender with a special spiritual connectedness. In these tribes, Two-Spirits filled important tribal roles as counselors, storytellers and healers.

As a self-described gay male, I bring my Two-Spirit healing to men and women to offer a unique, safe, and special approach to healing.

Features Real Estate Columnist
Metro Weekly
September 2000 April 2001 (8 months)

Michael wrote this column mostly to learn about real estate -- which he did quite quickly. One of his saving graces is an ability to pick up on and run with just about any topic -- with or without training or experience -- and writing about it with humor and style.

The Express Newspaper
1970 1973 (3 years)

During the time right after The Stonewall Rebellion in New York City, Michael co-founded Hofstra United Gays -- the first gay group at a university on Long Island. This column ran during that same period and strove to enlighten people about things "gay."

At the time, most straight people had little or no experience with gay people ... and the same could be said in reverse: many gay people had only poor experiences with straights (parents, the church, teachers, etc.).

With Straight on Gay, Michael tried to bring the two sides together by educating one another about what it was like to be gay in a straight world.

In retrospect, the writing was choppy and some of the ideas extreme.  So just try to keep in mind a few things:

  • Michael was frightfully young and inexperienced in life.

  • This was done during the furious 70s when everybody was just a little POd about something.

  • These ideas came long before AIDS would rear its ugly countenance.

  • Nobody else really seemed to have the chutzpah to write this kind of column.

Ever the trailblazer ....
