Conversations on the Healing Journey

Conversations on the Healing Journey

I do have good memories of my childhood, though few. I cherish the ones I have of the tea and conversations my sister, mother and I used to share. On this healing journey I would like to take the energy of those conversations and create a space here to share my thoughts with you.

Consider this an invitation. You are warmly welcomed to share your thoughts with me here.

To the best of my ability, I will create audio recordings of these posts for those who are hearing impaired or just prefer to listen instead of read. However, there are a lot of back posts, and I’m also limited in time as I’m working on a number of projects.

But like me, this blog is a work in progress. Thank you for joining me. Pull up a chair, make yourself comfortable, and I’ll put on the kettle.

But we’re not the only dreamers. There is another that dreams. It’s Life, Life dreaming you. This Dream of Life, well that’s the fingerprint of your heart’s desire. It’s your spirit’s dance and your soul’s whispering. It’s the call of every human heart, and it expresses itself through you through your unique vision and inspiration. […]

Things won’t fall back nicely into place. But they can fall into a better place, and we have a say in what that will look like. That is the way of healing. In healing from the trauma of sex abuse, I have learned that I get the last say in my life. Not my father. […]
