Let your pain speak
Let your pain speak. Pain management is often necessary and grounded in kindness and mercy. Pain avoidance on the other hand will go too far. Learn to walk that line. The entire medical system, both for physical and mental health, is largely based on pain avoidance-it's not sustainable. We must feel to deeply heal. Fact... Continue Reading →
From inside out to outside in…that’s what healing is doing
From inside out to outside in...that's what healing is doing. Rewiring for dealing with reality starting from within rather than without. When gut lining and brain barrier is compromised there is only porousness...it is reflected in the psyche manifesting as poor boundaries... it was the biofilm acting as mucosa and gut lining that was saving...

Body and brain are incredibly weird and fringe – astonishingly beautiful and horrifying too

One of my closest friends that I've been friends with for decades is a craniosacral therapist and she learned on me back when she was studying. From that point on it's always been a modality of deep healing for me...
