"Aware Beginnings" Life continues to evolve. I have created the administrative bridge for APPPAH and completed the training my replacement, Danielle Burns, who assumed the primary administrator role as of January 1, 2016. I have returned to my role as Editor-in-Chief of the APPPAH Journal (JOPPPAH), which will allow time to return my primary focus to writing, keeping this website updated, along with The Birth of Hope website and Facebook pages, and being more available for my family. Working as part of the transition team for APPPAH's rebirth has been a wonderful experience, but I am ready to see what life has in store for the next part of my personal journey. While I know I want to return to my own research and writing, I will wait to see what evolves before giving it any more shape than that.
My husband, Larry (Dusty), and I have completed our nine-week stay in Italy and are in the process of turning our blog, journal entries, and photos into a book.
Life is unfolding in delightful, if occasionally challenging, ways.
Birth: The culmination of the journey that began as a single cell, activitated to build a complete body by the joining of sperm and ovum, and embedded with the template of your unique DNA, which interacts with the environment in the creation of "you." Birth is the transition from that first stage of life as an embodied being into the wider world outside the womb.
Energy: Birth brings with it breath and expansion of your possibilities as an embodied being. Attention to the flow of energy in your body is a key to your full experience of this life.
Dreams: Mindstuff and its many levels of experience began as dreams in the womb, long before you had words and thought. Nurturning your dreams and appreciating their wisdom brings awareness of other levels of experience to your mental life, and connection with timeless wisdom.
Sandplay: Mind Made Visible. Dreaming Awake. Creating scenes in a small sandtray opens windows to your soul. Spirit plays with the sand, water, and figures to create visible scenes depicting your growth at soul level.
Spirit: That which encompasses and nourishes all. You are both one with Spirit and an individual manifestation of Spirit. It is your deepest purpose to express and experience life to its fullest.
