How the Signs of Self Hate Deepens Our Understanding of Self Love

How the Signs of Self Hate Deepens Our Understanding of Self Love

This journey of understanding my identity more deeply has surely brought up some stuff I really could not have anticipated. In this month's blog I share with you signs of self hate that I recognized and how it reinforced my current sense of urgency to do the work of self healing. In the process of really understanding the origins of my self hate, I'm reminded that the lesson is (1) it was a long road in history that brought me to this place of self hate, (2) there were/are many factors involved, and (3) we could have a long and windy road ahead of us, but it can also be so simple.   
Just as much as we aim for the bright light and positivity around us, we must honor our full selves and our experiences even if it means visiting our dark and shadow sides

The Messages in the Flames

A sister healer, Claudia and I decided to have a 1:1 conversation to discuss in more depth what my visions have been and what they meant to the larger view of “where does that leave us as a people moving forward?”.

Intention at the Core

Intention at the Core

Hiking without intention is like walking with the aforementioned notion; that being outdoors is healing in itself. That’s true and important for sure, AND I’m claiming my unique gift of being able to guide others through a healing process that is unapologetic about going inwards for personal growth.

In a sense, I’m taking hiking from a recreational activity into a deep healing process. And that requires and demands intentionality.

Life Re-traumatized

Life Re-traumatized

When I first started working in juvenile justice facilities I knew what I was good at. And that was to reach and teach environmental education to "high risk" youth populations.
