Look closely at the present you are constructing: It should look like the future you are dreaming. — Alice Walker
|THE ADVENTURE BEGINS
You can observe a lot just by watching. — Yogi Berra
I'll work hard to help you clear away the obstacles in your life that are keeping you from realizing your hopes and dreams ... keeping you from having close connections with the people important to you.
We'll explore and examine your life — your years of collected experience. We'll take a look at what shapes how you think, feel and act, and how you've come to interpret it.
We'll uncover ideas for you to try — life experiments that may offer you fresh ways of shaping and interpreting your experience.
I'll strive to help you notice previously undetected patterns and connections. I'll help you find ways to set aside your preconceived notions.
We'll work in the spirit of the Zen Buddhist concept of "beginner's mind."
In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities, in the expert's mind there are few. — Shunru Suzuki
Your feelings and thoughts tend to feel very different once you set apart old theories and assumptions.
At times, your feelings may be very intense. You may find yourself feeling exhilerated, jubilant, terrified, overwhelmed, drained, sad ... any number of things. This happens to adventurers and explorers.
I may notice some things that seem to get you hung up ... like painful memories and themes that keep surfacing in your life ... like selective ways you may examine things ... like tapes you keep playing over and over inside your head ... like roles you get stuck in ... like ways you limit how you feel and think.
