The Mother Of All Wounds
A Mother Wound is the mother of all wounds. When we come into “matter” it is our mother that we meet first. She is our first home. She is our first relationship. She is our introduction to life.

Struggling to Forgive?
Struggling to forgive? I don’t remember who or what started it. I don’t remember what was said. I do remember the hot anger and self-righteousness that kept me out of my brother’s life for almost eight years. I was stubborn that I was right, that he’d wronged me, that he should be the first to…Read More
