Welcome to Wild Arisings
Inspiration to help you awaken to who you truly are through self-awareness, self-acceptance, and self-determination.
Wild Arisings is a soul-stirring love letter to your inbox, filled with whatever insights surface from my deepest knowing to help you heal your unhelpful emotional patterns, connect with your true self, and shine your light brightly.
In each letter, I share my own stories, especially my challenges and how I overcame them, hoping they will inspire and encourage you on your own path of authentic living. I make each message meaningful because I only want to contribute to your life in a positive way, not add to the noise.
This is what readers say about my e-letters and how they make a difference:
"To tell you the truth, I just enjoy everything I get from you---it all seems to originate from who you are and how you see the world, which is with love and compassion and allowing."
"Your monthly topics make me search deeper in my own life and question and observe."
"I feel like at times when I open mail you have written to me personally with things true to heart."
Who Am I?
I’m a regular person just like you who has lived through my own traumas and heartbreaks. A great deal of what I share stems from my own life lessons, after stumbling and picking myself up many times. However, I also have a special perspective garnered from years of study and practice in the following areas.
I’ve studied Buddhism for more than 25 years, which is all about healing and transforming the heart and mind. My e-letters aren’t about Buddhism, but its universal principles influences my own personal growth and what I share with you.
I’ve guided hundreds of students as they learned how to practice mindfulness.
More recently, I’ve studied trauma (both shock and early childhood trauma) with experts like Irene Lyon and the team from the Community Resiliency Model.
I’m currently studying the Enneagram of Personality with Beatrice Chestnut and Uranio Pais.
Over the span of my work life, I’ve held various job titles:
· Freelance Copywriter
· Fundraising Consultant
· Non-profit Director (for twenty+ years in two different agencies)
· Employment Counselor
I’m glad you found me. I hope you’ll take a chance on my e-letter and see if it inspires and helps you too.
Wishing you the best, always.
