An abstract painting with bright colors and dark streaks.

Reading Time: 8 minutes Is working with opposites the key to healing? I entered Usui/Tibetan Reiki out of a completely vague need to do something valuable with myself. There were no big problems in my life then: I was in good health, my relationships were also going well, and my work was progressing nicely. My life may have looked […]

A woman smiling - black and white.

Reading Time: 14 minutes Sitting quietly this morning, as I listened to the universe for inspirational writing to share, I was taken back through my past, to my days of hard suffering. Up until my thirties I had always been under the control of ill health, diagnosed with fibromyalgia, hypermobility joint syndrome (HJS), Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS) and chronic fatigue. […]

An abstract very bright painitng of various intertwined figures ascending.

Reading Time: 5 minutes The world is becoming much more familiar with shamanism thanks to its interest in plant medicine and connection with nature. The shaman, as some may know, did and does much more than serve ayahuasca.

Reading Time: 6 minutes There is no soft way to put it into words when you have been sexually abused as a child, how that defined your sexuality and messed up your perception of friendship and intimacy.

Reading Time: 2 minutes I dedicate this poem to Dr. Staicu, the ICU staff at Highland Hospital in Rochester (NY), and therein the amazing staff on the seventh floor. Being hospitalized was my biggest nightmare, but I landed in loving arms. Almost everyone looked at me with eyes of love and spoke to me with kindness and compassion. Their […]

Reading Time: 4 minutes Here I am, under a shelter-in-place order, as most are by now. However, even before the order, I started distancing myself and limiting interactions with others, not because of the fact that I’m a high-risk, but because I consider everyone a threat. I am now accustomed to choosing when and where I go, but it […]

A photo of a woman in a cave looking toward the light coming from the opening.

Reading Time: 4 minutes I have been meaning write about my perception of the darkness for quite a while, and have written a few poems about it. Now it’s time to try prose! The catalyst comes from reading last week’s Healers’ posts on vulnerabilities, diagnoses, shadows and water. I enjoy nature in the dark, the mild air and sometimes […]

A photo of a contorted shadow on a textured ground.

Reading Time: 2 minutes In the brightness of light the darkest shadows appear. It’s magic, although it might not always feel like this, especially when you’re standing in the full embracement of life, feeling the comforting warmth of the sun shining in your neck. Touched by the hand of unconditional love in your back, your head being held by […]

A bright drawing of a man with portraits of various people in the background.

Reading Time: 5 minutes “Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.” (Dalai Lama) Nowadays we live in a very individualistic world, a society driven by ego, prestige and status. It’s all about “what’s in it for me” and how to get the best for “me, myself and I,” whether it’s in a materialistic, educational […]
