“To be a loving witness, for me, is to reteach a thing its loveliness; to find the seed of becoming in each thing and shine upon it the light of my heart and mind until it has even one moment of knowing itself as worthy, beautiful,
intelligent, moral, and true.”

Key Speaking Message

We have learned to view aspects of ourselves that disturb us as inadequacies or pathologies we must correct. This viewpoint has its roots in allopathic medicine, which regards difficulties as symptoms of illness, and feelings and behaviors outside the norm as problems we need to suppress or eliminate. When we operate from this paradigm, we too easily discard the seeds of our more authentic selves, compromise our more sustainable relationships, and neglect our more vital occupations. Perhaps worse, we relate to ourselves not with love and curiosity, but with a simple, shaming question, “What is wrong with me?”
