The Private Practice of
G. K. Hunter
Celebrating 23 Years of Private Practice
Over 20 years ago, I rented a corner office on 5th ave. & 28th st. in Manhattan to open my private practice as a healer. What began as one-on-one sessions with clients from all different background led to the inter-generational healing work featured in my book Healing Our Bloodlines: The 8 Realizations of Generational Liberation. I still remember how surprisingly calm Manhattan felt on Sundays and how high on life I felt after doing my sessions.
I did my practice on the weekends while also working as a full-time Research Assistance at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC). The emotionally demanding work of researching innovative pain treatments for terminally ill patients at MSKCC’s Integrative Medicine Department prepared me to go to those deep spaces where transitions happen. It taught me that nobody wants to say goodbye, but that everyone has a hidden strength to do so. As one chapter closes, another one begins, and with that new beginning comes the fresh light of hope and the spirit of adventure.
The pandemic has challenged all of us to reflect on our lives and reevaluate our paths. At the beginning of the pandemic, I worked as a consultant for contact tracing to alert people of their test results so that they could protect their loved ones from the virus. I still maintained my private practice and finished editing my PBS documentary Sakura & Pearls: Healing from World War II. It filled me with a deep sense of fulfilment to have helped so many people through this once in a century crisis. But the pace was unsustainable, and every fiber of my being told me that I needed to take a break. This is why I went on sabbatical.
As I re-emerge from my 2-month break, I have fresh clarity about my next steps. The next phase of my career has arrived. I feel called to be a leader and advocate for the generational right of our youth to inherit a habitable planet. There’s no shortage of creative ideas on how to solve the emerging problems of Global Warming. We already have the technology to generate green energy. The true roadblocks are embedded in inter-generational conflicts that nobody is talking about. The younger generations can see the folly of our ways and rather than inherit a flawed they want to rebuild our society in a sustainable way. I support them. Now is the perfect time to do it, especially since the pandemic has already disrupted our normal routines. The latest UN IPCC report warns us that we have left time to mitigate the Climate Crisis than we originally expected. There is just enough time to address our crisis, but it will take a core group of dedicated people who will do everything possible so that the younger generations have a chance to live on a planet where they can thrive.
There are inter-generational knots hidden beneath the political strife and competing economic interests that stop a concerted effort to address Climate Change. I see them. I can name them. And as an inter-generational specialist, I can facilitate the untying of these knots so that we can form multi-generational teams to change the way we get our power.
Now is the time. Satellite images from throughout the world showed clear skies over our factories for the first time in generations, proving to us that it’s possible to slow Global Warming. Moving forward need not come from a full stop of society. There is a middle ground. There is a way through. It’s possible to go out to dinner again while simultaneously making the crucial changes that provide the next generation with a livable world.
The first step in my transition to my new role will be the publishing my next book which is schedule for a June 2022 release. I will also be starting a non-profit to oversee the changes discussed in the new book. More details to come soon.
The pandemic has taught me my limits. It’s with humility that I must share that I won’t be able to maintain my private practice while moving forward to my next step. My new role will require all of my attention and I won’t have the bandwidth, nor the availability in my schedule, to continue to offer private sessions. So, I will be closing my private practice effective September 1, 2022. After over 20 years of serving as your provider, I want to thank each one of you for helping me to reach my full potential as a guide and an advisor. I will still oversee my company, BlueStone Institute, which offers consulting services to healthcare companies. This will remain open because I’m able to hire consultants to help me do the heavy lifting. Hiring outside help isn’t feasible for one-on-one sessions, but I can offer referrals to the qualified practitioners listed below. Please contact them directly for details.
It’s hard to say goodbye, but I hope you can see this void as an open door signaling that the next steps are coming in your life as well. For me, it’s the end of an era. How grateful I am that Life provides us with what we need to make our next transition, however challenging that change may feel. Thank you to all my clients that made this experience possible.

Rock on brother!! I will be leading Grief Recovery workshops starting in the Fall, trying to transition from my day job to full time Grief Recovery Specialist- I too ‘feel called’ to something different- I guess that’s the upside of the pandemic- no more status quo!
Great News Tim! Follow your heart. Thanks for the celebrations.
