Gutsy Healing: Reflections on Motherhood, Art, and Consciousness
This blog is dedicated to the question of what it means to live a healing life.
This blog will post my writing and videos about healing and how the path of someone who is healing is radical because most people don’t think healing is really much of anything. BUT if you decide that your mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual health are a priority, you are engaged in a deep, mysterious, and rousing wrestle with the forces of life. It ain’t easy and it ain’t quick. This blog includes musings on Motherhood, Art, and the state of our own Consciousness.
I will cover the topics and questions below:
1. Motherhood and Healing; What does it mean to interrupt the patterns our parents passed down to us? How does it look to truly invent a childhood for your child that you never had? What does healing from trauma and abuse mean and how does it change the choices one makes as a parent? As a person? As a compassionate helper in one’s own community?
2. The Artist who lives the healing life; What does an artist have to offer who is pushing the edge of his or her own emotional literacy? How does an artist speak for others as well as herself? Why does the creative life require complete surrender to the outcome? Why does it matter?
3. Consciousness as it applies to facing the horrible and fabulous truths about our self and our world; Can we choose how we grow in our own body/minds? Can we truly walk into our worst fears and open to them at the same time? How does consciousness evolve in our own lives, in our world, if we commit to truth at any cost? How do we know when the foundation of our understanding of things is shifting and changing for good? I will be adding posts regularly related to these topics and questions
