"It may be that when we no longer know what to do, we have come to our real work, and that when we no longer know which way to go we have come to our real journey…”
~ Wendell Berry
The Way of the Wounded Healer
When we answer the Call to serve, we fulfill a covenant with the Great Mystery to walk a path of initiations, beyond anything we could ever imagine, in order to better serve others..
Those of us who have been called to a life of service often walk rough roads of initiation through dark, lonely nights without a map.
We are on a path that teaches us to embody particular terrains of loss and heartbreak as well as the mysteries of Kundalini and spiritual awakening. Turning toward our own suffering becomes redemptive and the teachings of these initiations offer us a new level of awareness and compassion for both self and others.
Our devotion to service can give us the courage and willingness to meet the impossible tasks and trials of dismemberment and dying into the illumination and joy of rebirth and awakeness. Having consciously travelled through these territories myself many times, as well as with others for nearly 40 years, I have a map and a compass. I can be with you as companion, sacred witness, and midwife.
Also, when questions arise regarding those you serve, it often helps to have another pair of eyes and ears, as well as invitations to self-inquiry and sacred questions. This "super-vision" can help point you to the answers within your own wisdom heart.
