 The Body is the Landscape of Our Mind
  Each of us is a sacred landscape.  In my journey toward self awareness and acceptance, toward finding my passion, along with developing my skill base, I reconnected with my Mind and Body as a sacred landscape whose wonder and elegance are born of earth, air, fire, water and spirited with unique soulfulness. My search for understanding and meaning about myself and my life began when I was very young. I wondered about many things that I saw and heard, touched, tasted and smelled. I Ioved being in nature where I felt I belonged. Indoors, I noticed the way my parents, teachers and friends talked at me, not to me.
 I learned very early that "children were to be seen and not heard." I had many feelings about all of the above, yet, no one noticed those feelings, thus I began to act out to get attention. I also began to "manufacture" real aches and pains hoping to be noticed and comforted.  I learned much later in life that being seen, supported and comforted are basic needs that are essential for health and well being.  My educational path followed my quest for self understanding in body, mind, heart and soul.
