Judy Rae Brooks – Founder Lightbridge Media
My vision for Wild Woman Wisdom is to create a community of Women that share their gifts and talents and the lessons they’ve learned along the way. My hope is to inspire, enlighten and support women of all ages by creating lively conversations/podcasts and gatherings that support our overall well-being. A place to go when you’re looking for inspiration or modalities that support your mind, body, and spirit. My intention is to create ways for myself and others to be present, healthy and happy experiencing joy no matter what is going on in the world. As I’m writing, I realize that’s a tall order, but as they say you gotta have a dream, if you want to have a dream come true.
My inspiration for most of my professional life has come from my desire to marry the Healing Arts with the Creative Arts. Since I believe most of the creative arts can be used as healing tools.
Having had a lifelong interest in Metaphysics and Natural Health in the mid 80’s I was attracted to learning more about energy medicine and resonated with the Japanese healing modality of Reiki and became a Practitioner. I was still running Brooks Management representing actors but I used Reiki on myself and my family. When I moved to San Francisco from LA to live with my husband Roy Walkenhorst I closed Brooks Management and reinvented my work life.
I started teaching Acting From Your Intuitive Self, had a radio show in San Francisco called The Intuitive Connection and began my producing career.
Next, I was drawn to Hypnotherapy and became a certified Alchemical Hypnotherapist working primarily with actors. My friend Drama Therapist Phoebe Rubin and I taught and produced 5 Autobiographical theatre pieces with actors after workshopping with them for 10 weeks to develop the shows.
As a producer/writer/director/ for over 30 years much of my focus has been on women and children’s issues. Including the popular six-part series Broken Wings for the educational market on healing domestic violence. “My Changing Body” a series for adolescents and teens for the educational market.
In 1997 Roy joined me at Lightbridge media, and we still had the rights to the News Travel Network library so he produced a few more travel shows under the Lightbridge banner.
My first project with Roy as my partner was Peace Kids – The China Trip A documentary that aired on PBS stations. I traveled to China with the founder of Children as the Peacemakers Patricia Montandon, our ten-person crew and thirteen American children ages 6 to 18 with the intention of unfurling the Banner of Hope a Traveling Memorial dedicated to children killed in wars around the world including the violent gang wars that have killed so many children here in
America. Against all odds we successfully unfurled a large section of the mile long, red silk banner on the Great Wall of China.
For the past 20 years my focus has been on HealingQuest.tv a Mlnd, Body, Soul Television Series that has aired on PBS stations across the US for 13 seasons as well as in several other countries. Healingquest.tv now has a channel on the BingeTV Network, Roku, Amazon Fire and over 100 streaming platforms. Plus our Healing Quest YouTube Channel. Since 2018 my partner Roy Walkenhorst and I have also been producing and hosting Healing Quest Radio and Podcasts on iHeart Media.
As an entrepreneur for the past 40 years I usually have a plan when I start something new. But with Wild Woman Wisdom I have been letting it organically reveal what it wants to be by listening to my intuition more than my busy mind. To quote Albert Einstein “The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift” – Albert Einstein
I can’t wait to see what magic and love we all create.
