Overcoming obstacles is my superpower! Every. Single. Day.
Living with rare, incurable diseases that cause chronic, debilitating pain has been a part of my reality throughout this lifetime. Some of what I experience is due to genetics, while other aspects are the result of past traumas including multiple surgeries, a less-than-healthy lifestyle, stress, and other factors all combined to make a mess of the body I live in. Connective Tissue issues decreasing both range of motion and mobility, along with other physical challenges that impact me adversely on a daily basis, are a few of the challenges facing me each morning. Still, I rise and greet the day.
Multiple members of my family experience severe mental illness, including my son, Juan, who struggles with the challenges of high intelligence and drive to succeed in life, coupled with and complicated by Schizoaffective Disorder and Catatonia. I am not only "Mom", but also his primary Caregiver.
Great strength and resilience grow in the places where the physical, mental, spiritual and emotional woundings happen. With hurdles jumped daily, either by necessity or sheer will to slam forth and do what needs doing, while learning to navigate through a life much different than planned, I have gained a breadth of knowledge and useful skills to help myself and others dream through nightmares & succeed where success often seems fleeting.
From this wrestling place, I am creating a restful space. Drawing from my own intuitive nature, merging with the wisdom of my ancestral roots, in a constant romance with the wildness of life, I venture to my garden, discovering what is new, what is meant for compost, and what is ripe for picking.
As I enter the 2nd half of 2021 and near my 55th birthday, I find myself relocated from Interior Alaska to the Mohave Desert, and shifting from relative privacy to a more public life. My work is transitioning from a small studio in Fairbanks, Alaska to online platforms with a global reach that enable me to share what I have learned so far to a wider audience, to support us all. What a blessing it is, to be alive in such a time! I feel grateful for the possibilities!
Minding My Own Business...
I Am a Celebrant.
Ordained since 2004, I am Registered with the Nevada Secretary of State to perform Ministerial Services. As your sister in this human family, it is my honor to support you on your spiritual journey, to guide you when you feel lost, to lift you when you feel down, and to encourage you when you're struggling. I strive to do so with words and actions that resonate with you, infused with the same love that permeates all that exists, without the limits and dogmas we tend to invent in our limited understanding of all that is. Having studied many of the major religious practices and beliefs around the world, the one thing that brings us all together, is that we all experience joy and we all endure suffering. Seeking the balance between extremes is a goal - to find our poise in the present state, despite whatever challenges we are facing. Personalized private and semi-private spiritual services offered.
I Am a Creative.
Weaving together art, beauty, crafts, designs, emotions, fortitude, gratitude, healing, intuition, joy, kindness, love, mystique, nature, opinion, poetry, quirkiness, relationship, sacredness, therapy, understanding, vitality, xscape, and zany thoughts, such as: Tears Are Therapy & World Peace Is Possible.
As I enter my elder years, the stories of my life are ripe for the picking, and now is the time of telling. You can help them come to life at Time To Thrive.
