“Life’ wrote a friend of mine, ‘is a public performance on the violin, in which you must learn the instrument as you go along.”
E.M. Forster, A Room with a View
Life is a funny old trip. Here we are, born without anyone asking our permission. Here we are, with all kinds of trials and tribulations. Surrounded by people and things that seem (sometimes) to be committed to making us miserable! How do we rise above this? How do we live a fulfilled life? How do we find our place of tenderness and generosity in the situations in which we find ourselves?
I think that finding that place…. finding the wiggle room…. has been my focus for over twenty years. In all my study, I have been finding the tools to take me and others to that place of tenderness and generosity. And my journey has been very rich: Gestalt training with Helen McLean, study and therapy with Process Oriented Psychology, and training in Movement Medicine. The journey continues, becoming deeper and more rewarding.
I offer work in three distinct areas
All of my work is rooted in compassion: compassion for ourselves, and compassion for all of us beings on this human journey.
