Nancy Risley is a gifted healer whose advanced understanding of energy systems has created the basis for the RYSE Tools for Life work.
Having grown up with in a medical family (her father was a vascular surgeon and her grandfather was a country doctor) Nancy was exposed to the miracle of the human body but also the limitations of western medicine. From her well developed intuitive and perceptual abilities came the understanding that there was much more going on than western medicine understood. This drove her to look for the "truth in healing" and a life dedicated to learning everything she could about wellness.
She studied physiatrics and bio-dynamic nutrition in Europe as well as polarity therapy, crystal healing, meditation, yoga astrology, psychic development, channeling and many other related topics throughout the years. Her thriving private practice, first as a massage therapist and then as a Polarity therapist in the 1970's, gave her the platform to study the effects that stress had on clients and through thousands of session she began to experience the human energy field. Working with end-of-life clients as well as all age groups gave her a deep understanding of how the life force affects all aspects of our life, both physically but also emotionally, spiritually and in the way we manifest our lives.
The Polarity Realization Institute was born from the constant interest of her clients who wanted to understand the work she was doing. Over years of learning, doing sessions and teaching, Nancy developed an extensive understanding of the unique challenges faced by healers. Time and again she would see their practice become successful and then the practitioner would get "burned out" and suddenly their private practice would shrink. This fascinated Nancy and it was in studying this issue she reached a new level of understanding of the profound role that energy plays in all aspects of life.
This base of knowledge of the healing principles of self-realization and transformation are reflected in her unique approach as taught in all of the programs at the institute. She continues to build on this knowledge and develop more profound ways of working with energy as well as training others to do the same.
After years of practicing and perfecting this work she is now documenting a vast body of knowledge as well as training teachers to bring it into the world. Her pioneering work with RYSE is based on her years of training and helping energy workers and therapists to reach their highest potential. She has also found the work to be profoundly valuable for everyone including mothers, managers, teaches, coaches, athletes, dancers, artists and more.
As a leader in the Polarity community, Nancy was in the first group of practitioners to receive the Registered Polarity Practitioner (RPP which is now BCPP) status from the American Polarity Therapy Association (APTA). She was also a member of the first APTA Standards of Practice committee and the Registration Committee. In 1989 Nancy was awarded Honorary Diplomat status by the APTA in recognition of her pioneering work and exceptional contribution as a teacher and practitioner. Nancy was also in the first group of Polarity educators to receive the Registered Polarity Educator (RPE) designation.
Nancy is the author of The Polarity Workbook, The Advanced Polarity Workbooks and RYSE, Tools for Life as well as 15 CDs containing the meditations to support both students and practitioners.
She continues to explore, develop and document based on her experience teaching advanced energy healing classes for students, and teachers.
Kris is a renaissance man with skills that cover a wide range of subjects. Having an equally strong aptitude for intuitive creative thinking and analytical reasoning and quality control, he has approached the field of energy work with questions and evaluation.
Music was always a predominant influence and a driving force. Having gone from learning trumpet as a traditional musician reading music, when he took up the guitar he strove to learn the essence of the instrument and let the instrument teach him how to play. Additionally he came to realize the power of the human voice.
After years in high tech as a Quality Assurance Engineer and later as a Software Engineer working on large scale integrated systems, through stress and injury he discovered the benefits of massage and polarity therapy. Amazed by the results, Kris focused on understanding how polarity therapy worked and became a practitioner and a teacher.
In 1989, his love of music and polarity therapy converged in the form of using structured sound with quartz crystal bowls to move energy and effect healing. After working with hundreds of people with Nancy, who was teaching RYSE, he determined how the sound of the bowls could be recorded to help people repeat the experience of RYSE beyond the initial clearing, thereby giving them the leverage to reinforce a consistently clear and aligned energy system.
Hence, Moon Suite and the 5 RYSE recordings were created to assist in clearing and aligning your energy for optimal performance.
