Can you imagine what that river would look like? Sound like? Feel like? Smell like? Taste like?
Would it flow freely or be stagnant?
Would it be fast moving or meandering?
Would it be clean or polluted? Cloudy or clear?
Would it be dammed or blocked? Pushed underground?
Could you love the river's beauty? Or would you be comparing it to other rivers, wondering why it wasn't faster or slower, warmer or colder?
My life and work are guided by the these core understandings: that all beings (including me!) are capable of transformation and joy, that healthy parenting matters profoundly, and that simple practices can support each of us.
