I Won’t Interrupt…

I Won’t Interrupt…

“Perhaps the most important thing we bring to another person is the silence in us, not the sort of silence that is filled with unspoken criticism or hard withdrawal. The sort of silence that is a place of refuge, of rest, of acceptance of someone as they are. We are...
Now what?

Now what?

“How are you?” I asked. “A bit blah” replied my client, “it feels like same old, same old, if only something interesting or exciting would happen! I want to change something but I don’t know what I want to change.” Resonate for you? It did for me. My own routine of...
Are you someone who processes deeply?

Are you someone who processes deeply?

If this question has your attention, I’m guessing you’re someone who already knows you prefer time and space to process deeply. I’ve always known I’m like that – it’s mostly what I call a super power, and admittedly, sometimes feels limiting (so I avoid...

Our Deepest Fear

Our Deepest Fear

”Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to...

Staylistening

Do you ever have the experience of a word, a single word, resonating so deeply that something seems to actually shift inside? It happened to me recently. I heard the word staylistening. Instantaneously something settled inside and I knew that’s what I would have...
