healing is an inside job, but it's far from a solo adventure.
i love hearing and sharing stories resilience. in an age of individualism, i am inspired by the idea of opening up dialogues about how we are held by the brilliance of community, and to give these communities recognition.
i "lost" my way - in fact, the details of my desires and a penchant for idealism set me up to be taken on a journey, someone else's journey, that both thrilled and frightened me. the highest highs and the lowest lows. i barely knew where i had let myself be guided. now out of that situation, and having received professional therapeutic help, i realize that this can happen to anyone. there is no shame here. our hearts are soft at their core, and can be made hard through repetitive suggestion, coercion and isolation.
so…..why share? because this is the part where stories are like fires: they burn to clear. what shows up in that clearing, in that spaciousness, is up to the discipline of transformation. we all have such specifics pulses, paces, rhythms and pathways, and these rhythms become the architectures of our learning.
having been back in vancouver since april, i've had the privilege of a massive support system. this web continues to grow in the most sustainable of ways…but here is a shout out, to all those who have encouraged me in this phase of reacquainting me with how i can give back, how i can serve, how i can share art.
