I grew up in a small town in the hills of the Oregon coast range. I had space to roam. I had freedom to pursue whatever struck my interest knowing I would have the full support of my parents. I chose not to take the typical path of school, college, job. I started My first real job at age 12 And have been working ever since. At this point I'm in my second career.
My brain and my heart are the two things that define me most. The way my brain works has dictated what choices I have made and lead me to follow the non traditional trajectory of my life. My heart has guided me for better or worse through those decisions. I seek continuity between my heart and mind. It's a daily practice.
I'm a very verbal person, when discussing something complex I have a tendency to think out loud.
I probably dance in my room by myself more than most people.
I work in the healing arts doing therapeutic bodywork. I facilitate others to move towards wellness through a whole body structural approach.
I champion my qigong practice for keeping me sound within my mind, body and spirit.
I'm an active person who needs to move or I will go crazy. Everything that I love has to do with movement.
I suppose that is more than six, but I don't concern myself with arbitrary numbers.
I often think, I want more, give me more. How do I become better? Am I up to the task of making that happen? Will I hold myself accountable?
Lately I find my self thinking about massage and bodywork, I think about becoming a more nuanced and sensitive practitioner.
Also if going salsa dancing with me sounds appealing!
