Healing is such a mystery! How do we do it? How long will it take? How deep will it go? Because we are each unique, our answers to each of these questions will be one-of-a-kind answers. How lovely then, to have a space and time, every day, to simply enter into our intention to heal and find our way from there. I feel so privileged to be invited to participate as a presenter of Nightly Healing.
So often, we think of healing as ‘recovery,’ the process of righting some imbalance in our body, our heart, our mind. But healing also asks us to be creative! We become artists of a sort, because it isn’t enough to heal the old wounds. We must also dare to envision the new self that yearns to emerge. Accessing our ‘inner artist’ is scary because we think of artists as people who live outside of our safe, ‘normal’ world. Yet so often our ‘normal’ world throws us out of balance and into the spin of doing, doing, and doing.
I am interested in the often over-looked world of becoming––that place inside each of us where the essential DNA of our most evolved self lies waiting to express. My work, for four decades, has been to explore and foster the essential artist-healer that lives inside each of the precious individuals who have allowed me to walk with them on their healing path. For them, I have had the privilege of writing books, creating music, making paintings, drawings, and even business cards and logos––each intended to mirror some rare essence of being, and awaken the possibilities inherent in their unique process of becoming.
In recent years, many have engaged me to work one-on-one, as a coach to their inner game. These clients have often been socially conscious entrepreneurs whose inspired visions require them to access the most trust-worthy parts of themselves, and to operate consistently in a mood of heart felt ease and grace. I have also greatly enjoyed creating and delivering group processes for transformation, both in live workshops and by web and phone.
