(Composed 22 June 2021)
Taking my own medicine, I am s-l-o-w-i-n-g d-o-w-n.
I feel a deep need for more capacity to show up in each moment, to have the bandwidth, of time and attention, to create, to grow, to breathe. Therefore, in service to balance and sustainability, I am suspending my practice with individuals.
To what am I turning? I am turning towards bringing my full presence to each moment in my personal life, as well as my professional life. I am turning towards a sense of moving at the pace I can sustain for the long turn. I am turning towards feeling like, and being, a living, breathing member of my community. I am turning towards further developing, and contributing, my unique gifts.
What will I be doing? I will be growing my capacity to work in group settings: I am embarking on Ann Weiser Cornell’s two-year “Inner Relationship Focusing” training program, while continuing my training in Steve Gilligan’s “Creative Mind” program. I will also be continuing my training and development teaching Chen-style Taiji. I hope to develop my nascent “Writer” self. Perhaps, if time and energy allow, I will complete the Hospice volunteer training program.
What is in store for my practice? In the meantime, you can look forward to new blog posts sharing my insights. You can look forward to new programs that cultivate the capacity to engage with inner conflict and old hurts that lead to clarity, coherence, alignment with purpose, and the ability to move forward.
Please sign up for my mailing list, if you haven’t already, so you can know right away of my latest offerings.
