I dedicate my work
to honoring the integrity of our longing and our essence not simply for relief from our pain and struggle, but also for restoration, renewal, and reclaiming our birthright, which is growth, lively curiosity, understanding, deep personal peace, and happiness. It is internal freedom and a deep connection to a source that lives vibrantly within each one of us that longs, calls us, and is our deepest purpose to be lived.
My own healing journey
began when I was a child. I could see, feel, take joy in the delight and awe of life and the spirit around me. It held great amazement, wonder, and light for me. And I longed to have those who were my caretakers share this with me, remember and live from this peace too. Eventually, however, with the pain of life and separation, I too began to forget and close down to my own wonder, curiosity, and openness.
My healing journey is one of reclaiming this original light, this primal sense of well-being, inner freedom, and connection to spirit and the essence of love.
My journey of reclamation and renewal began with painting. Something about painting allowed me to open to the moment, to light, color, shape, form; to feel into life as it was and find my inner creative spark. I could speak and express myself freely and explore again, alive with wonder.
Eventually, I started to explore many different mysticalpaths to help me heal: yoga, kabbalah, hinduism, buddhism, movement, and hands-on healing such as Barbara Brennan's, and what my earliest experience of life was in the womb. I went on long meditation retreats learning the inner territory of the mind and silence and emptiness. I learned to be present in my body in an alive way and to allow the frozenness of my body and its fear and pain of existence to thaw and move. I found my feelings alive again. I studied with great teachers, following threads that would help take me to my inner essence. I learned to find my pleasure and joy again.
Today I have
my passion and wonder, joy and peace, pleasure and curiosity. It is very much alive and renewed from the healing journey that I have embarked upon myself for painting and yoga, for meditation and learning for the essence that lives vibrant and alive within each one of us. I now have a greater capacity to sit with my deepest struggles, closure to life, and pain. I see the light and the gift within that. It is this passion for our inner light, our deep sense of self, true inner freedom of being, and the capacity to realize all who we can be that I bring to my healing sessions.
I know that healing is a process
and not an end point. I live in openness and find the next level of healing that needs to be done. In the mystical Jewish tradition, it is called Tikkun Olam, the healing of the world. For me, the healing of the world begins within. We heal our own inner world and bring that to wholeness, well-being, kindness, love, and understanding. Then we begin to affect and help to heal the outer world.
