Aligning with your inner compass requires dedication, listening into your very depths and often even drowning out the friendly advice, well-meaning recommendations and opinions of others around you.
“There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time. This expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium; and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open.” —Martha Graham
I believe that each individual possesses an inner compass informed by a deep internal knowing, which is always present. Unfortunately concerns for societal norms, supposed-to-be-s, should-s, have-to-s and much more so often obscure and interfere with listening to your inner wisdom. Many people I work with commonly carry such conflicting motivations without letting on outwardly what’s going on internally, and sometimes bury conflicts deep within. What Martha Graham calls “divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest,” which stirs and whispers, eventually awakens many to live undivided no more.
Inviting a holistic way of living involves balancing: light and heavy, laughter and tears, gladness and grief, bright spots and darkness etc. Together all elements make up wholeness. There is an integrity to wholeness that transcends any singular quality, and motivates all of life.
I provide an open, reflective space. With deep listening I guide people I work with to reconnect with the integral source and wellspring that is inherent in being alive. When in touch with this inner compass, each person’s intrinsic beauty blossoms showing itself in the world. The journey is a precious process of remembering—a full embodied knowing—where healing is simultaneously beneficial for both the individual and the common good.
