“We need mystery. Creator in her wisdom knew this. Mystery fills us with awe and wonder. They are the foundations of humility, and humility is the foundation of all learning. So we do not seek to unravel this. We honor it by letting it be that way forever.”
(The quote of a Grandmother explaining the Great Mystery of the Universe to her Grandson.)

My Healing Philosophy and Statement
Our world and each being in it is experiencing unprecedented times. The global pandemic and all its effects in our lives is leading us to challenge ourselves to change. We are facing important life issues and decisions as human beings. At times the challenges we face seem overwhelming, confusing, unresolvable and often conflicting. And yet, human nature at the core has amazing capacities, potentials and abilities to shift and contribute to global solutions. Instead of accepting that we are breaking down, each one of us can breakthrough. We have the ability to thrive together as a species and share this with all living beings on our planet.
