Counseling for the Human Spirit
REFLECTS THAT WE ARE
As human beings we seek to make meaning. It belongs to us existentially. We have an innate sense of purpose that we wish to embody. We integrate themes from our past with our experience in the present so that we move into the future with some sense of ownership. As we learn to read our life story as both subject and object we can find our rightful place in it. We work not only with our literal minds, but with our senses, our feelings, and our intuition. We can reach beyond the confines of our reactive self and our defenses to understand what belongs to us, what we can let go of, and what is asking to be born. We create not just a coherent story, but a true, just and inspired way forward into the future that is calling us.
Distress reveals incongruity. Within the complexity of our being, parts of ourselves often make choices and act in ways that are not desirable or harmonious with the entire system. Because ALL parts are welcome, in our counseling process, we are able to discover the often veiled elements of ourselves and the conflicts that live amongst them. As we befriend, untangle and unburden the various parts of ourselves, we also build a relationship with our True Self. true to ourselves. Rather than acting blindly in unconscious and habitual ways, we move forward to align with the whole truth of our being. As we begin to experience ourselves connected; as we find calm, curiosity, clarity, compassion, we are also becoming one with our True Self.
