Over 25 years ago I had a dream in which I was told ‘seek and you will find’. It was one of those dreams from which one awakens immediately, in awe of what was given from the interior depths. It marked the deepening of a soul-longing in me that could never be satisfied by the external circumstances of my life.
In 2002, in the second year of a 3 year soul development program offered by the Transpersonal Therapy Centre, I experienced an irrevocable turning of my heart that rooted in me a steadfast commitment to self-transcendence. All seeking then led me deep into my own psyche and my very human heart in a process that confronted, and ultimately stripped away, my concepts and beliefs about my self, about others, and about God as Love.
I have learned the truth of Carl Jung’s statement that “we are in the deepest sense the victims and instruments of cosmogonic love” by plumbing the depths of my psyche, by growing intimate with heartbreak and the capacity of the heart to take on a quality and depth of compassion seemingly not possible except through the experience of heartbreak, and by delving into the realms of consciousness through a committed meditation practice.
A graduate of the Living Spirit Program (2003) and the Transpersonal Therapy Skills Program (2007) offered through the TTC and a certified Spiritual Director (2012), I am dedicated to supporting authentic ‘being’ and serving cosmogonic Love in the world.
