On Connection
with Self:

but from being unable
to communicate
the things that seem important to oneself.

you create your relationships
out of your

is to take a giant step

Articles & Tips


Forgiveness, a profound state of letting go,
is experienced as the freedom of deep relaxation
and comfort in the body.

~Joan Borysenko, PhD


Adversity is our dear friend.
It is the driving force that pushes us out of our
comfortable nest and forces us to learn to fly on our own.
We can really welcome adversity as a gift. Without it our growth is very slow.
With it, we are transformed from fledglings into masters.
Every great person has a history of adversity.
No one has ever made a contribution to humanity
without first undergoing a certain amount of trials.
~Alan Cohen

Part of trusting is feeling safe.
Unless I feel safe with you ... I cannot trust you
by sharing my True Self with you.
Healthy boundaries are important ...
Because they let my True Self come out,
in part by protecting its integrity and well-being.

Forgiveness is freeing up and putting to better use the energy once consumed by holding grudges, harboring resentments,
and nursing unhealed wounds.

Nothing triggers my defenses more than when
someone criticizes me in the same way I am secretly
criticizing myself, or when I know I am wrong
but don't want to admit it.
