I’m a licensed massage therapist that practices Thai Folk Medicine and Craniosacral Therapy. I’m a cat lady with puppy fever. I’m 99% vegan most of the time. I’m a dessert aficionado who tries so so hard to be grain and dairy free. I love to make things. I love to love on people. I’m a righty and my hair is always straight. I am a go now, do now kind of woman. I am an artist. I am obsessed with dark chocolate. I have brown eyes. I’m a listener. I’m an extroverted introvert. I squeal when I take photos, and often lose my breath. I love to read. I’m torn between the city & the country, east & west coast, being a night owl & an early morning person. I really like writing. If I could apparate, I would.
Creativity embeds knowledge so that it can become practice. We move what we’re learning from our heads to our hearts through our hands. We are born makers, and creativity is the ultimate act of integration— it is how we fold out experiences into our being. How do I take what I’m learning about myself and actually change how I’m living? …creativity is the mechanism that allows learning to seep into our being and become practice. “Knowledge is only a rumor until it lives in the muscle.” What we understand and learn about rising strong is only rumor until we live it and integrate it through some form of creativity so that it becomes part of us.” —Excerpt from Brené Brown’s book, Rising Strong
