“When the student is ready the teacher will appear. When the student is truly ready... The teacher will Disappear.” ― Tao Te Ching
I’ve finally reached the time in life when I have thoroughly accepted that there is more earthly time in this incarnation BEHIND me than there is AHEAD of me…… and I am very excited about the future! This is not how I imagined I’d feel as I approach my 64th year.
I made a fairly quick decision to retire from a long career teaching Theatre arts in the public schools last year, and knew somewhere own deep the was another another calling for me. It was a call to gather women, and TALK…. and feel SAFE…. and learn to LOVE themselves as they have so deeply loved others. I need that myself.
I’ve attended many recovery retreats, yoga/meditation weekends, grief support groups,
and 29 years of 12 step meetings. These gatherings taught me so much about the value of CONNECTION, our need to acknowledge our INNER WISDOM, and to turn on the LIGHT that has been buried deep inside us.
In 2016, I became a certified facilitator for Women’s Personal Groups through Life Balance coach, Renee Trudeau, but was not ready to fly with project because of my full time job. This year I was blessed to find Tanya Lynn and the Sistership Circle Facilitator Training. It has helped me nurture the seed of a dream that was planted a few years back.
I have had an wonderful life, but have experienced many emotional challenges and deep
losses, especially the loss of my son in 2015. Today I partner with friends, old and new, my beautiful Golden Retriever Molly, and my husband Henry. I work part-time as an Activities Teacher at a senior residence for Memory Care patients. I paint, craft, walk, do yoga, play with essential oils, act in local community theatre, and remain as creative and alive as possible.
I am extremely excited about building Sistership Circles here in Central Massachusetts, and would love to hear from anyone who would like to join me on this journey!!!
