Used judiciously, medical therapy is a great gift. But frequently, we reach for medication to quell our deepest longings and pains; especially when our feelings and needs are at odds with the breakneck pace of modern living. That this habit is not new is made abundantly clear by Emily Dickinson’s insightful and vivid commentary. This blog is the about connecting to the images that heal, enliven and nourish us deeply in a way that a pharmaceuticals cannot.
I hope to share dreams that have helped me and my clients(with permission) live more fully in tune with our nature, and also to heal places where tooth nibbles Soul. I will also share poetry that has inspired me and poems I have written as part of my own discovery and healing.
There are many paths to healing and I can only share experiences from those few I have traveled myself or witnessed up close. I write both for myself and for you as reader: I write to explore the terrain of my own inner landscape more fully, to recognize the connections between inner and outer worlds, and also as a way of paying forward the inspiration I have received from teachers, family and friends throughout my life. I hope that with time you will add your own voice to this conversation, so that the blog can become a rich dialogue, where a variety of viewpoints can be heard respectively.
