Kimberly Burnham, here. My goal is to change the face of brain health, of genetic medicine and to help you start telling a different story of your health, your future and to inspire hope through my own story of healing despite a genetic condition of the eyes (Keratoconus) and the hate I have experienced from my own community. I have found new communities full of healing. I would love to help you do the same.
Many of my books have step-by-step exercises you can do at home.
Feel free to contact me at my private practice in West Hartford, Connecticut or talk with me about consulting in your clinic as I do in places like Portland, Maine; San Diego, California; Norfolk, Virginia; Salt Lake City, Utah; Austin Texas; Eugene, Oregon; Munich, Germany; Verona, Italy or working with you in your home anywhere in the world. I am also the publisher of The Burnham Review, a series of reports on Complementary and Alternative Medicine ISBN:978-1-937207-00-7
I have a weekly radio show on the Creating Calm Network - online radio. I would love to have you tune in. blogtalkradio.com/creatingcalmnetwork

"In discerning our fractal nature, we are nature contemplating and embodying ourselves."- Our Fractal Nature
"There are many ways to get to the top of Mount Fuji." - Japanese Saying
"The most important decision you will ever make is to decide once and for all whether you live in a universe that is supportive, that supports you and is friendly, or whether you live in a universe that is hostile and is not supportive." - Albert Einstein, Physicist

Kimberly Burnham, PhD, Poet, Poetry Coach, Corporate Story Teller, Developer of Sensational Medicine, Member of West Hartford Hither and Yon,
I feel so strongly that we can each feel better and literally transform our body and ability to heal through paying attention to our senses.
For me it is the same with writing poetry. In order to write a poem that sends healing and love out into the world, I have to pay attention to my senses --
What do I see that moves me? Is it a color, a shape or a movement? What emotions does a piece of music bring up for me? How can I pay attention to the nuance of the words and make them more true to what is inside me and more powerful in creating good in the world?
I have submitted six poems to Inner Child Press Anthologies. It has been an incredible way for me to get my message out into the world. Here are quotes from each one.

Paper Nautilus 2012: Juxtaposed Mormon Lesbian
Details at readpapernautilus.blogspot.com/2013/01/2012-issue-now-available-for-purchase.html
Lisa Mangini, Kimberly Burnham, et al. (2012). Mormon Lesbian - An aphorisms, a terse saying embodying a general truth or astute observation in Paper Nautilus 2012 poet, Lisa Mangini. Author's include: Lisa Mangini (Editor), Kimberly Burnham, Jason Primm, S D Stewart, Paul David Adkins, Jefferey Alfier, Martin Balgach, Janet Barry, Kristen Berkey-Abbott, George Bishop, C L Bledsoe, Duncan Campbell, Melissa Cannon, Darren Cormier, Matthew Denvir, Jacob Edwards, Laren Eyler, Jessica Forcier, Amy Gentile, Jason Hibbitts, Marianna Hofer, Nicole Hospital-Medina, Ann Howells, Marcia Hurlow, Jennifer Roth Jackson, Susan Johnson, Hillary Kobernick, Jean LeBlanc, Kathryn Locey, Edward Manai, Karen McPherson, Kelly McQuain, Zackary Medlin, Ann E Michael, Jesse Minkert, Mack J Mitchell, Brian D Morrison, Rich Murphy, Mike Petrik, Will Pewitt, Frederick Pollack, Melissa Reddish, Stephen R Roberts, Jay Rubin, Michael Saleman, Shae Savoy, Carolyn Foster Segal, Amanda Sibernagel, Gerald Solomon, Jessica Stilling, Doc Suds, Wally Swist, Allison Tobey, Brendan Walsh, William Wells, William Kelley Woolfitt, Mike Wright, Changming Yuan, Sheri L Wright.
And while my bio is longer than my contribution to Paper Nautilus 2012 it was great fun to write. The mandate was to write an aphorism in 140 characters. It is a good discipline to write a significant message, share a story, create a sensational impression with just enough characters as will fit on a Twitter status.
In a brief 159 characters and spaces I traverse my 1982 graduation from Brigham Young University - an image of my entire Mormon upbringing from my pioneer ancestors - members of the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saint for five generations back ... to my publication in a 1988 anthology, Guide to Gracious Lesbian Living where I signed only my first name Kimberly. Life was very complicated and I didn't want to publicly come out and make it so much more complicated. It wasn't until much later in 2004 that I was part of a political action and applied for a marriage license with my girlfriend in Boulder, Colorado. It was 2012 before I claimed my chapter in Guide to Gracious Lesbian Living and added it to my Amazon author's page. I also published a book of poetry entitled, Live Like Someone Left The Gate Open, Narrative Poetry from a Lesbian Mormon. So much can change in 30 years.
In 2013 I am telling more of my story in the upcoming book No Mistakes!: How You Can Change Adversity into Abundance amazon.com/No-Mistakes-Change-Adversity-Abundance/dp/1938289110 and pinterest.com/KimberlyBurnham/no-mistakes-how-you-can-change-adversity-into-abun/ Kimberly Burnham, PhD, The Nerve Whisperer and Rabbi Ann White are featured with Madisyn Taylor, Sunny Dawn Johnston, HeatherAsh Amara, Rosemary Hurwitz and 25 Inspirational Authors

Lilith Press, May 1988 amazon.com/Guide-Gracious-Lesbian-Living-Baboo/dp/0920681050 (111 pages) ISBN: 978-0920681053
The difference 25 years can make is astonishing. In 1988, I wrote a chapter, The Secret Life of a Working Woman's Wife for Guide to Gracious Lesbian Living. I was so closeted, I only signed my first name. Now I name my partner on the back cover of Our Fractal Nature. I published a book of poetry, Live Like Someone Left The Gate Open, Narrative Poetry from a Lesbian Mormon. And Guide to Gracious Lesbian Living is being used as an educational resource. My chapter is featured along with LGBT authors and here are some of the LGBT chapter titles: The art of lesbian letter writing-S. Baboo; Lesbian lovebirds and their ways-Marlene Wildeman; What's hanging in your closet?-D. Gabriel; True romance in the eighties-Susan Wallner; Washroom encounters-Jorica Perry; The secret life of a working woman's wife-Kimberly Burnham; The A, B & C's of lesbian dating-Jay Thorne; The woman with the rose-Candis J. Graham; On being celibate-K. Linda Kivi; Alice, Gertrude & friends-Janick Belleau; Here in da country-Sunshine Goldstream; Sappho's guide to dangerous women-A Franz; Diane Desmarais.
