FAVOURITE QUOTE:

“Above all, do not lose your desire to walk. Everyday, I walk myself into a state of well-being & walk away from every illness. I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it. But sitting still, & the more one sits still, the closer one comes to feeling ill. Thus if one just keeps on walking, everything will be all right.” – Soren Kierkegaard 
WHAT MAKES YOUR HEART BLOOM?
It makes my own heart bloom to see the fruits of the healing in my clients’ lives. This validates for me my role to play in this universe to bring healing to people who earnestly seek it.
