Conversations on the Healing Journey

Conversations on the Healing Journey

I cherish the memories of tea and conversation with my sister and mother. On this healing journey I’d like to create our own conversations of healing.

Consider this an invitation to share your thoughts with me as we explore the things that hurt us and the things that heal, together.

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.

Like me, this blog is a work in progress, so I thank you for your patience. And thank you for joining me on this leg of your healing journey! Are you ready? Pull up a chair and make yourself comfortable. I’ll put the kettle on.

“As a survivor of incest, I do not diminish the impact of being sexually abused as a child, but I’ve come to realize that the dynamics of covert abuse helped my father to justify and sustain his abuse. As egregious as the sexual abuse was, it was the cover up — the denying and the […]

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. […]

I don’t care how many issues you have. I don’t care how much you may have messed up in your life, because you didn’t have it together. If you are here — no matter what condition you’re in, you are a warrior. Many who make it through this pandemic will come out traumatized. But what […]
