After an MRI in December 2010, I was told that whole brain radiation was indicated. My radiation oncologist warned of side effects, particularly extreme fatigue during and after treatments. Radiation took place daily for three weeks. I kept waiting for the “fatigue” to occur but it never did. My energy level during and after treatment was amazing and even my husband was pleasantly surprised. Lisa referred to her treatment as “vibrational medicine.” Earlier in the fall I had seven weeks of chest radiation. It’s unbelievable how the fatigue consumed my body during this prolonged period of treatment. This all took place before beginning my therapy with Lisa in November 2010. She has been part of my treatment since then.
My journey with you could never truly be put into words. You have changed me forever and I am truly grateful. You are an incredible teacher with great wisdom that you freely share with others. I know I have become a better healer from your teachings.
You have also helped me to honor Mother Earth and all living things (including ants, snakes and scorpions, haha ) with beautiful sacred ceremonies. I have learned that Mother Earth holds many weapons for us to use in our " fight for light".
Most importantly, you have taught me that empowerment comes from within and we can all tap into that power.
Lisa Murphy is by far one the most incredible beings I have ever known. She is a wealth of ancient knowledge. She is regal, yet silly. She is truly non-judgemental. She is real, always. And always the same. She stands strong in Truth. When I am in her presence I feel grounded and safe. And, at the same time I feel limitless, like I can swing from the stars. … I had been practicing meditation for a few years, but this was on a whole other level. This experience opened me up. I've had many more amazing experiences with Lisa since, and I know there is so much more to come. I'm elated just thinking about it. I am so grateful.
After one treatment with Lisa, he went into his freshman high school year with amazing grades. He said he found the work easier.That helped so much with his self esteem!
I awoke in the most peaceful state of mind I can remember. As of today I feel 100%. No doctors, medicine, only more sound, vibration and intention to let the healing continue naturally.
By sowing the seeds of spiritual growth, Lisa Murphy will serve as your catalyst for a greater understanding of yourself and the universe. … My self-awareness has grown exponentially since attending her classes. With these foundational teachings I now have the knowledge to believe that divine energy is real and this understanding will give us authority to control our lives through our mind- spiritual connection. I also have more insight into the practice of my Christian belief. I now know that I have the unlimited potential to transform myself spiritually and physically.
I was encouraged by my therapist to work with Lisa Murphy. Lisa works with my therapist.
I was blocked and I was having trouble attracting a job into my life. I was also confused about which direction to take in life and in looking for a job. What should I be doing? What is my calling in life? I was also confused about a few relationships in my life.
After one session with Lisa I had All my questions answered. Lisa also told me exactly how to keep my energy level at 5G all the time
The next morning I was contacted for a second interview for a job that I thought I would never hear from again. It had been such a long time. I had the second interview yesterday!!!
I now know what direction to go in and exactly what I should be doing in life! My confusion in my relationships were cleared up. Lisa gave me the clarity that nobody else could. Lisa has completely CHANGED MY LIFE !!! I highly recommend her. I look forward to more sessions.
Thank you Lisa for the session we had together this afternoon. My energy level has never been so high and I feel really great.
As we were moving along in the session, I was feeling my energy level increasing. I could feel in it in my core, but I especially felt it in my forearms and hands. It was incredible, to the point where I was wondering what to do with all that energy in my hands.
You placed a big bowl over my solar plexus, belly and pelvis. While the sound resonated through my body, I had my first major insight: my purpose is to heal others. My mind was confused as I didn’t know how, or what it really meant. But at the same time I had a feeling of certainty. A knowing that made me feel so confident.
You kept on working on opening my solar plexus. I felt a huge relief, like if I was finally letting go of a heavy suitcase. And on the other hand, I felt a massive increase in power. This only made my first insight stronger and stronger.
You then placed a lighter bowl on my heart and another on my belly. This is when I got my second big insight. I questioned my intention of wanting to heal others. I got a pretty straightforward answer: if my intention was recognition, reward, success, celebrity, it would not work. If my ego gets in the way, I would not receive the energy to heal others. My intention should be to accomplish my God-given purpose. Period.
You then turned me around on the table. The energy was flowing through my body, I could feel the energy healing the traumas my body had been going through in the past year while going through cancer-treatment. The vibration of the bowls on my back were super healing.
You then stopped with the bowls, and started massaging the top and the bottom of my spine. I felt like the energy of the universe was flowing through me. I saw that I am the Universe embodied in me. I don’t know how to explain it better. It was a very strange and yet peaceful feeling.
Thank you again for this incredible experience and I hope I get to see you again soon.
I met you a few years ago, when I believe I was at my lowest point. I felt stuck, lost, and I knew I wanted more out of life, but did not know where to begin. I remember having a conversation with Zelia, and we started talking about energy medicine. Zelia gave me the information to the energy medicine classes, your phone number, and from there my life was about to change.
I called your office and spoke to Carol and from there my journey started. I remember sitting in the first class and thinking wow........I am really doing this! Now the reason I thought this, was because I was always afraid of doing anything new. I was extremely shy and always afraid of what people thought of me (thanks to my upbringing). I was so proud of myself! This is how I knew my life had to change, and I just could not stay stagnant anymore. Then, I went to the second class, I felt good and empowered within myself somehow. Do not get me wrong, there was so much work to do within myself, but as I attended each class, I felt myself change for the better. It felt amazing.
Then little did I know, my life was about to make a complete turn. On November 8, 2016, I lost my husband, stepson, and best friend's husband. This was the worst and most devastating day of my life. I did not even know what to feel, because there was no visible evidence of the accident of what happened to the three men. They went recreational fishing, and they never returned from the day trip. I went through a period of denial, anger, and sorrow, but because of you I was able to go in the dark and see the light.
Through this tragic period, you helped me get through the grief without falling into a deep depression. I was able to stay in the light while grieving the death of my husband, stepson, and Mario. You would not charge me for my scheduled appointments for a whole year without hesitation. I was so grateful for this! You were always there holding the light and energy at a high vibration. You never made me feel like a victim and I so appreciated that. Lisa you listened to me, and helped me stay in the light.....
There are no words that I could say to you for how thankful, grateful, and appreciative I am of your generosity.
I met Lisa in April 2009 when I was experiencing frequent suicidal ideations and somehow knew I needed to heal spiritually from within. My friend was a client’s of Lisa’s for the past few years and recommended her numerous times, but I kept putting off making an appointment for myself.
Despite many good friends and a supportive husband, my depression intensified over time. In the recent past, I had tried traditional 1:1 talk therapy with a licensed social worker, but I was done talking. I also suffered from chronic right-sided pain from head to toe. For years I underwent traditional massage, a bout with acupuncture, and a year of chiropractic care. Nothing worked, and I continued to feel contracted and pained. This too, I felt, would only heal if I was able to heal emotionally and spiritually.
Lisa utilized holistic massage and bodywork, talk, sound healing. I also signed up for Lisa’s 200-hour yoga instructor training almost immediately after one of my first visits with her. The combination of regular holistic bodywork, sound healing, yoga, and meditation began to change my life for the better. All the work Lisa was doing with me resonated like nothing I had experienced previously. Over the next year, Lisa taught me Reiki I, II, and III. I feel being initiated into Reiki shifted me alchemically. After Reiki III, I felt well enough to speak with my doctor about stopping my Paxil after ten years! He agreed and I was weaned off the antidepressant one month later. I feel so much better equipped to handle the stressors in life. I now realize stress is not bad, but rather how I react to it.
I have worked with Lisa Murphy for many years both as a private client and as a student in her many fruitful classes. Working with and learning from her has created some of the most helpful, insightful and tangibly life altering experiences I have had. I am not talking about mere moments of insight, but the kind of experiences that unfold over time and stick. True shifts that stand the test of time.
She has the ability to meet issues at their core with compassion and consistency and she is uniquely in the moment. Her wisdom allows unique perspectives that can lift one out of familiar and repetitive ways of thinking and reacting. Many times her perception was so different from anything I had heard before that it took awhile for me to catch up, catch on and then hold on to a new way of thinking and seeing. Ways of seeing that improved the connections I have with myself, others and the world around me. I have found that these seemingly small perceptual shifts are the ones that have made for the most changes in my life.
No two of Lisa’s classes are alike as they reflect the fresh moment and are created from a true connection that includes the unique group that attends. She has an ability to explain deeper concepts in new and fresh ways which means she will find a way for you to understand. And she won’t stop until she does. The wisdom and teachings remain consistent, however, because she embodies and models what she teaches. I have found Lisa to be the most trustworthy and humble teacher, healer, mentor and wisdom keeper I have encountered.
I have so much gratitude for the tides of change she has taken me through. Always there and always ready for the next step. Seeing and believing in my highest self with the skills, love and compassion needed to ride the waves. She speaks the truth with strength and patience and shares all that she knows freely to serve a higher purpose. May you be so blessed to experience her gifts and the wisdom she holds.
My name is Sherrie Rose Best. I live in Rochester, mass. I have known Lisa Murphy since 2009. I met Lisa through a mutual friend (Carole Gardner). At the time I had just finished radiation for ground level breast cancer. Being diagnosed, I felt, was a wakeup call. I needed to slow down and pay attention. I will never forget the first time I met Lisa. Carole had asked if I wanted to go to a mentoring class that Lisa holds once a month. At the class we went into a meditation. I had never meditated before and was so impressed how deep and connected I felt. I didn’t want to come out of the meditation because it felt so good. After that initial introduction I decided to make an appointment with Lisa. I felt I needed her to help me heal. I was so impressed by how Lisa was helping me I decided to take some of her classes. I started with “Reiki & Hot Rocks 1 & 2”. I’ve also taken 6 month Beginner Energy Medicine class & 6 month Advance Energy Medicine class. I’ve also taken a Sound Healing class too. I’m currently in her Bodyworks class getting ready to take my massage licensing test. I’m also assisting in a Beginner energy medicine class presently. I have seen many transformations come about from all the great work that is being taught. Over the years Lisa has helped most of my family heal ( My husband, sons, father, sister in law, many friends, etc). I used to have chronic headaches from allergies & my menstrual cycle. Over the past two years I have been allergy & headache free. I’m also Cancer free & no longer have to travel to Boston. My goal has always been to learn from Lisa all I can and to be able to heal myself, as well as my family and friends. I truly feel this is my path. I can honestly say I have had many experiences so far with healing. My husband Chris has had some inner shoulder discomfort that has lead him to believe he needed surgery. After asking him if I could help “giving him energy medicine” & connecting using “Bio-Scalar Energy” he said yes and both times he couldn’t believe he had no more pain or discomfort after three days but yes it was true! I also had the same experience with my Dad recently. I know I make a difference every time I connect with a being and help to assist in raising their vibration. I am very Proud to be a part of Fairhaven Healing Arts. Lisa Murphy is my Healer, Teacher and Mentor!
I had my follow up sonogram to check for improvements in Aiden's bladder and kidneys. As you know the doctors were concerned that they were not releasing fluid on one side and were thinking if it didn't correct itself they may have to call in a specialist and possibly surgery after delivery... Well the follow up went fantastic! Not only did they see improvements but they said it looks completely normal and there is no need for follow up exams :) They estimate him as a very healthy and relaxed 4.4 pound baby as of now and said everything looks great! Just 6 more weeks to go and Ricky and I can not wait to bring him into this world. The doctor said he has a very relaxed heart rate. So thank you for all your love and support, it will never go unnoticed and I know Aiden is feeling the love already. I have been noticing how Aiden connects to sound lately and especially the drum so if there is anyway I could get a frame drum I would love to purchase one :) I feel like it is a great way to connect with him while still in the womb and once he has entered into the world :) Again thank you for all you do, I am filled with love and gratitude for all who have been a part of this wonderful journey.
I had a very proud moment I’d like to share with you! I was nervous about helping a client so I started to reread notes from class hoping for some clue or enlightenment. To my surprise I didn’t have to do anything but listen to the client and address the emotional issues that were coming up while doing the session. The same thing happened with the following sessions each time she felt lighter and her arthritis in her hands was improving by this time they had more movement in them that she had stopped taking the steroids. I was shocked and happy. So it shows how deep emotional issues can affect someone. With her it was her bones and with each layer we removed the lighter she says she feels everywhere. She is walking taller, with a smile and positive things are reoccurring in her life instead of negative ones. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and wisdom!
Several years ago I decided to search for a holistic healer to work with in order to help me with my Multiple Sclerosis. I was tired of going to Doctors who sent me to more Doctors who gave me more medications and I was getting more symptoms and problems!
I happened across an old acquaintance in my search who told me about a person who worked with someone who had MS and was in remission from their symptoms.
Luckily, it was Lisa Murphy, who is a multi-dimensional healer and teacher who has an unlimited depth of wisdom and knowledge beyond any one book I’ve ever seen or read.
Within the first year of working with Lisa I was able to reduce multiple prescription drugs for depression, fatigue, muscle spasms, joint pain and blood pressure. I saw a reduction in stress within myself and body. The best part of the healing process is how it has affected my life! Lisa’s approach to healing is two-fold in that she uses her abilities to work with energy and sound to open up blocked energy within you and then gently guides you on a journey with much love of self- healing and enlightenment. This approach allows you to grow using Lisa as a teacher and mentor, the keys to success and happiness. Lisa never wavers and is steadfast and strong in her knowing’s, dedication love and support of all humanity.
As a parent of a child labeled “special needs” and told from early on that the only recourse to allow him
to succeed is with brain-altering narcotic drugs, potentially for the rest of his life, I began seeking out a
better, safer alternative. This led me and my son on a path to Lisa Ishwari Murphy of Fairhaven Healing
Arts. Lisa has an incredible ability to see and connect on the soul level to free energy blocks. Her years
of study with indigenous people and connection with spirit allows her to connect with all energy in the
universe. This is clearly evident in her transformational sessions. Lisa has been able to shift my son’s
energy, allowing him to self-reflect and redirect in a way that no modern “medicine” has. Her energy
work is so pure and comes from a place of love and light that one cannot help but undergo a
transformation. She has a truly amazing gift and I am grateful to have her healing energy around my son.
I loved my session via phone with Lisa. I rang from the Netherlands. I felt Lisa was right beside me.
She described the yurt she was in & I felt so peaceful & close to nature.
It felt as if I was talking to a very dear, warm & loving friend. During the session Lisa tapped intuitively & with great knowing into aspects I didn’t know of nor expect. I felt a huge amount of relief as energy shifted in my body while talking about the unspoken & the unacknowledged. Lisa has a beautiful & powerful gift of intuitively knowing while being warm loving and transformative. I’m so looking forward to my next session. Thanks so much Lisa.
"My energy medicine session with Lisa was the most expansive experience I’ve had with any energy healer. Lisa made me feel immediately understood and seen. I came to our session wanting to work on the trauma housed in my throat chakra, which impacts both my speaking and singing voices. Lisa was able to pinpoint the source of my energetic blockages with ease, and led me on a powerful journey of healing and release. Lisa stepped into that trauma with me and I could sense that she was truly feeling and understanding it in a way that no one else ever has! We were able to make a significant dent in clearing it out, and when the time comes to clear it further, I will certainly be asking Lisa to guide me through those next steps. She is a compassionate, deeply gifted healer, and I am grateful to have connected with her."

Letter of Testament to the Benefit of Lisa Murphy and her Life Work
My name is Noah Bacon. My life is in part a testament to the merit of Lisa Murphy. I am glad to offer this letter as well for others to benefit from. I met Lisa Ishwari Murphy at the Bioneers by the Bay conference put on by The Marion Institute for the Connecting for Change workshop series many years ago. Lisa, a local of Fairhaven, had come across the bridge to lead a workshop on sacred sound and described some of her experiences to the group and also blew a conch shell for us to hear and feel the quality of sound. I was a highschooler at the time; I was at the workshop with my parents, tagging along with them whenever I didn’t find something more intriguing. I remember being surprised at the penetrating quality of the noise from the conch and how it seemed to transport me. It was grating, the first time in the small room, but it was intriguing. After the workshop, I questioned Lisa (I was an armchair spiritualist at the time and wanted to see what ideas and understandings I could compare against hers) and got to have my first one on one time with her. While we were talking, I noticed something in her eyes. I was distracted from the conversation by my own noisy thoughts, but I was watching her speak, and I noticed her blue eyes became especially blue, almost glowing. I didn’t know what to make of it, but I knew Lisa had experienced things that I had read about, and I wanted to know more.
A couple of months passed and I was immersed back in my normal life. At that time I thought I was an embodiment of hate, or some kind of long term experiment that my friends and family were putting on just for fun. I had a lot of common struggles, like feeling at odds with the universe and oneself, but I also had some sharper struggles with their own complications. These made for a very dense and difficult process at times. I had been through all kinds of (mandated) therapy and read all kinds of books about psychology and new age healing, finding leads and hope and then always coming up short and more frustrated than before. It seemed that the best most people could do was offer a kind word or a band aid. I wanted someone with a road map of the universe. At that time I had only actually met maybe 5 or 10 spiritual teachers other than my own father, an episcopalian minister (not counting reception parties after church). My father started visiting Lisa for spiritual direction sessions after the workshop and a while after that I asked if I could take one of his appointments. I was extremely nervous driving the 90 minutes or so to Lisa’s home. I had all kinds of superhero expectations and projections that I brought with me. Even with my whirlwind mind, Lisa was able to ground me and our first session was magical - I had feelings of release, healing, empowerment, and joy, all from the surprisingly simple toolbelt of Lisa’s divine presence combined with her years of experience in counseling, body mechanics, emotion dynamics, and energy healing, all empowered by her exceptionally sharp power of insight.
I was hooked on the feeling of progress. I had forgotten the amount of excitement someone can feel. I felt hopeful that I could release my traumas and conflicts and embody the person I thought I would become. I wasn’t stable at the time though, and put myself back into a dark place very soon after that first session.
For a long time, maybe 2 years, that’s how our sessions went. I would drive over carrying a full load of mental garbage on my back, and Lisa would help me “pressure wash” myself clean again (though I should add that while the work was as powerful as a pressure washer, there was also a kind of sauna- like quality, very safe). Every time I asked for help the message and tools were the same: remember the fuller context I was in and allow mental focus to come back in full, release tension I was carrying and release self-negative ideas I had about myself and the world around me, feel the aliveness in my body and connect each cell in my body to the natural current of aliveness inside, and open my intuition to the gifts that are already present and to the threads of what is being offered so that I might act more skillfully moving forward in any situation. Unfortunately, many pop culture references seem to depict healers like Lisa in a negative light, as if they are airheads or just pretending…. woe to those who cry dehydration and then refuse the water in front of them!!!!!!!!! I laugh often when people close to me question these experiences, it is the exact same as if someone from the desert told someone from a coastal city that oceans don’t exist -- friend, I myself can swim!
Lisa saved my life in many ways, she provided consistency in a time of turmoil, she provided compassion in a time of malice, and she demonstrated skill in a time of confusion. I do not put any pressure on anyone to save or not save me, but I can state that her influence was extremely positive. More than once I have been on a roof looking down and more than once I have held sharp things close to my arms. With my own help and the help of others, I am still here, and often floating in an ocean of joy in comparison to how things used to be, all those years ago.
Things got better. Much better. Then, it was time in my own life to move forward. I had graduated high school (with honors, who knows how). I asked Lisa for her help, I wanted to be able to do what she did. I asked her if she could teach me herself. She reluctantly said it would be a great idea, but that she could not offer to do so because of her schedule and her life circumstances - she was always booked at least a month out in advance because of how much people appreciated her work and she was also raising her high school aged son. Both jobs turned out well, it is interesting to note how cool the people that gravitate towards Lisa are. One can look to her associates, her friends, or even her son, and by their light gain insight into her presence and her effect.
Lisa could not take me on as a direct apprentice, but she knew people who could. I then started the phase of my life which has most determined the rest of it, so far as I can tell. Over the course of the next ten years, I went to learn and work with all kinds of masters. Sometimes with indigenous masters, like Cherokee, Q’ero, and Hawaiian elders and spiritual teachers. I studied with energy healers and was allowed to work in clinics and hospitals offering energy medicine. I met with psychics and mediums and received wisdom from them as well as help in cultivating my own intuitive skills. I sat and talked and mediated and prayed with teachers in Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, Jewish, Pagan, Shamanic, NewAge practices and more. I have been to holy sites, shrines, and vortexes and felt the currents. I have worked with channeling and connected with energies so big and luminous that my whole body spasmed and my mind went to a place of almost total bliss and peace. I have studied in 24/7 “monk” style settings and had one engagement like that for a course of 9 months which contained a 10-day silent meditation at the 6-month mark, then another 3 months of practice afterwards for integration. These experiences were like marbles along a walkway, I could not even see the shape of the path before me until I had reached out and started to receive some of what was being offered.
This education that I received did not come without a cost. There was the financial issue of paying for these travels, experiences, and sustenance throughout. Lisa offered for me to receive funds as a “Wayshower” scholarship. She was extremely clear about what she was offering, that I had an opportunity to do what I wanted, all I had to do was confirm my interest in this path and walk it with integrity, however that presented itself to me along the way. There is an expectation that as I earn more I will be able to help others in the same way. As a Wayshower I look forward to enabling others, both financially and otherwise, to walk this path. I would like to provide all of what has been shared to me for as many people as I can, ideally I would like to see as many people practicing luminous arts (to try and use a catch-all term) as do go to college every year.
I would like to specifically thank Mary Ann Rob, one of Lisa’s students and friends, who played a huge part in enabling my travels and sustenance by her sharing of her own funds. Many times Mary Ann’s aid was the exact support which created a bridge for me to move forward. My family could not help, as they were paying for my sister to be in school and were occupied with providing for themselves. I was not working as much as I could have at the time as I was still partially struggling with the darkness mentioned above. I have worked almost every type of basic labor job, I have waited tables, I have painted, I have worked in a movie theater, I have tried selling jewelry online, I have done lots of work, but still Mary Ann and Lisa’s help was essential to my success.
Now, in March of 2020, I am happy, I am healthy, I am me. I cry tears of joy most days feeling waves of energy move through my body, enlivening my cells and expanding my mind. I exercise often, feeling the ability of my body, which Lisa helped to mend (she was instrumental in the healing of a chainsaw accident to my left knee and to my torn right shoulder labrum, a relic from frequent shoulder dislocations after a skateboarding accident). I am a student again and earned a 4.00 GPA from Bunker Hill Community College last semester. I transferred credits from 4 schools to COMMUNITY COLLEGE when I started this past fall - again, I had been struggling in so many ways for so long. This semester I am on track for another wave of A’s and am lucky enough to be working with a bioinformatics internship mentor, a woman who was a student at Bunker Hill and now has a PhD and works full time in research. I believe that the science skills I am learning will synthesize with my spiritual experiences and provide an insight for me to use to bring shared benefit to all. This might manifest as having the tools to show medical professionals how to work with energy medicine in ways they can measure, it might look like creating tools and instruments to work with this high energy, it might look like writing and sharing my experiences, it might look like facilitating events where people can learn, practice, and share their own experiences. I have no idea right now, only feelings and intuitions based on what has happened so far, and what threads are still pulling me forward. I would not be here if it were not for all the help that I received, and Lisa Murphy is a paragon of excellence to demonstrate how skillful and compassionate someone can be to others. Her influence in my life is more than I can share and her effect is so beautiful to watch. I am extremely thankful that she has been in my life and I pray that I can be of service to others as much as she was to me.
With Love and Gratitude, Noah Samuel Bacon
I have a message for you from Lizzie. She said this after her last
visit with you. 12/31/12 “It’s like an Angel has reached down and saved me”
For all that you do for us and so many others, thank you!
Lisa is a gifted healer. She uses her knowledge and intuition to
make a deep impact on physical, emotional and spiritual levels. Lisa has kept me
on a clear path toward healing from physical injury while integrating spiritual
growth and emotional healing. I cherish the time I have with her.
I have worked with Lisa on several levels, as a client and now as a
peer. I had a brain injury 8 years ago. Without Lisa’s amazing skills as a mentor
and powerful healer I would not be where I am today working and thriving. As a
Teacher she is a cut above the rest. Her integrity in this line of work is
Forward of News letter from The Whole Elephant Revealed:
She writes from her reader’s list that “One of them wrote that the book was not
only “just what she needed”, but also that she had read The Whole Elephant
Revealed, because it was assigned reading in a healing energy class with Lisa
Murphy, being one of only two required.(the other book Infinite Mind by Valerie
Hunt) and she wrote, that to her it’s clear why my book was on that list!
Lisa has helped me spiritually, physically and mentally. She is
a gift from god is how I would best describe her! She is a very talented individual
who I speak very highly of and have recommended her to a lot of my own clients.
Lisa, I am grateful for your healing yesterday and in all ways.
This morning I feel as a new being in this body. No pain of the past, or suffering of
the future, only love for all things in the present moment especially for myself and
that I can be of service to the world.
As you helped me set an intention, I did dream one which was most comforting
that was standing on the beach in the warm sun by the ocean feeling God and you
were there standing by me in magnificent beauty a pillar of Peace, Light and Love,
just taking in the splendor of all that is! Oneness. My blessings and love.
The most important thing that draws me to Lisa’s classes is that
she is real, truthful and ethical! She strips the room of biases and judgments and
perceptions and gets to the learning, teaching and the heart of what I truly
believe is in each person in the room. This makes the classes challenging yet
peaceful at their core.
I came from a deeply restrictive, abusive and dysfunctional
upbringing. I was living a life confined by fear, distrust, illness and depression.
Before I met Lisa I had several years of traditional therapy which helped
somewhat… When working with Lisa she helped me to stop minimizing what I
had been through and to be honest with myself about how it was affecting me in
As we continue to work together she is teaching me how to stop being a victim
and to take back control of my own life. This is one of the things that make Lisa
really unique-she doesn’t just work on you, she works with you! She is the most
gifted healer I have ever encountered. Compassionate, patient, teacher and
mentor. It is inspiring to see her use her intuition, knowledge and talents in the
healing process. As our work together progresses I can feel the growth on all
levels, physical, emotional and spiritual. I am blessed to have her in my life!
I met Lisa while going through the most difficult,
debilitating depression of my life.
At the age of 44 I was unable to work and suicidal. With Lisa’s guidance and
loving healing abilities and working the steps of AA I have been able to face,
address and heal lifelong deep spiritual and mental wounds.
Lisa fully supported and encouraged me. She truly understands the addictive
mind and has an amazing intuitive healing spirit!
I am now clear to pursue my life’s dreams and passions again, unblocked and free
from fear. I am eternally grateful for the work that I have done with Lisa!
Lisa Murphy's work has had profound impact on my family. Within a few sessions, she was able to identify past issues and elevate the energy level between my husband and 4 kids during the pandemic. She has worked with my teenage boys individually, and has enlightened them to operate on a higher energy level - which in turn has brought our family closer as a single unit. My husband and I have also worked with Lisa with sound healing, and her teachings have inspired us to navigate towards more balance in our chaotic professional lives, while maintaining a strong connection with each other and with our kids. My life has become more productive and profound since starting my work with Lisa, and she helped me see a new dimension in my life that is my own truth. I've also had 15+ years of psychotherapy, and truly believe I was able to have more positive personal development in 6 months with Lisa than through therapy.
Lisa has helped us with things as "simple" as improving the connectedness of our family, raising our individual energy levels and providing sound energy training (our whole family now loves using our bowls to reset, recharge and relax!). Yet since Lisa is a teacher first and foremost, all of these "benefits" also come with a deeper understanding of both universal and personal truths as well as indigenous-inspired practices that empower all of us to become our own healers. Lisa radiates Peace and Love and it is impossible to spend time in her presence and not feel changed...my wife and I often talking about how for weeks afterward, we are in an almost euphoric state. And perhaps most profoundly to me, after 50 years of experimenting with various religious, spiritual and even psychedelic practices, with Lisa's inspiration and I find myself on a path toward deeper joy, peace and meaning than I thought possible. If you are lucky enough to have the opportunity to work with Lisa, I would run to do so...each session is a gift in and of itself.
Hi Lisa.....I had to write and let you know you were successful! My clogged ear is gone! My head feels clear, and my hearing is much improved! Looking forward to more positive results as the days go by. Wonderful.
PS. I listened to classical music all the way home....keeping my brain and body in rhythm.
I’m quite excited to keep allowing the blessings to keep all in rhythm. It’s been so much fun to walk by your side almost 10 years now.
Sending love to you and for you
I was encouraged to begin my yoga teacher journey by Lisa Ishwari Murphy. I had a lot of chronic pain, physical ailments, as my body was stuck in a contracted place and I felt very weak and sick most of the time. I reached a place in my healing journey where it was vital to get my physical body into a light body. A light body was something I desired and at the same time didn’t fully believe was truly possible.
As soon as I started yoga teacher training I was skeptical, reluctant and wondering how my body was going to be able to move into poses. I quickly realized Sva Ha yoga has so little to do with the actual postures and poses.
It is a way of life. No matter the posture, “The soul is on its knees.” It was a very emotional process, during the first few classes. I had a lot of doubt and was reluctant about continuing the process.
Lucky for me, Lisa and one of my closest friends Ashley encouraged me to keep going. I had a huge awareness and learning moment in one of the classes as we were activating and going into our chakras. I didn’t realize how hard on myself and my body I actually was. When the limitation came in, not being able to fully go into a pose, I lost it emotionally inside and out.
That was one of the most important learning lessons with the support of specific individuals in the class. I was learning the very foreign concept of being compassionate and loving towards myself without forcing myself into a painful pose that my body wasn’t ready for. The lesson of self love and compassion came flooding in. I finally understood what Andrea meant by not trying and honoring my body.
As the awareness and lessons continue to flood in each weekend from the teachings, I saw myself becoming rhythmic in the practices. My body was actually naturally flowing and pulsing without pain. I was literally letting go and flowing freely. I was shocked by this lol.
I had a brief time where a blimp came in and I wasn't physically able to move in the poses one weekend. I remember, that was the moment I realized how much my body missed and enjoyed movement and how much I was benefiting. I was so much lighter and freer. I actually told Lisa , “I couldn’t wait until my body could do the physical movement practices again.” That was also the very weekend where I experienced this immense amount of connection and healing during the yoga. All while I was just staying in a seated position. I was so energetically engaged, connected, and tuned into my loving witness. I felt such powerful energy shifts throughout the practice. As again,” no matter the posture the soul is on its knees.” I had direct evidence right there.
By the end of training, the movement poses that scared me the most, I began to absolutely love. I felt more confident and fluid in my body than ever before. For I am not weak, but have the strength of a lion and the fluidity of a river.
As we began to practice teach I could see my gifts shining my light, and confidence coming through me as I spoke from this connected place. It Ignited me to a place of “wow I am really meant to be doing this, a yoga teacher “.
Never in my wildest dreams did I see this coming.I am very happy and blessed that Lisa nor Andrea believed the limiting thoughts to be me. That allowed me to grow, bloom and transform into my higher potential. This was only possible with the support, compassion and wisdom, love, and teachings of the yoga teachers and supportive students.
Lisa also continued to help support me in my personal sessions step-by-step as we cut through beliefs and conditionings. I highly recommend Sva Ha yoga teacher training. It completely transformed my life and left a beautiful imprint on my heart. I am forever grateful to Lisa, Andrea and the other Sva Ha yoga teachers and students to be where I am in this moment.
Lisa is a talented, gifted healer with an innate ability to connect with her clients. She is warm, empathetic and truly dives deep to work with the root causes of ailments/issues. Since working with Lisa again, I have experienced a transformation on the physical and spiritual plane. Not only am I feeling better physically, mentally and emotionally but I am better able to connect to my spirit again which is having profound effects on my life in all areas (work, life, love, family and friends). I look forward to continuing my work with Lisa and highly recommend her. It will change your life!
