Nationally Certified Grief Counselor & Educator
During my graduate studie in Theology, I encountered the ancient Jewish tradition of an ethical will and immediately recognized its application, not only for grief work, but for building self-esteem and leaving a lasting legacy of one's life. I began to assist people in memorializing their life experiences and wisdom in meaningful and lasting ways by writing Legacy Letters. I call myself The Wisdom Weaver. I offer Free talks on Legacy Letter writing for the opportunity to sell my book, Wisdom Under the Bridge: the Prophets from Skid Row. And, I conduct 3-hour Wisdom Weaver Workshops which give folks a jump-start on their legacy letters.
I am a person seeking the gifts in adversity, attempting to combine compassion with curiosity; and spiritual experience with practice. I find projecting and prophesizing distasteful. I detest following rules that don't make sense to me. There are many sides to every issue and thus I believe the middle path is the most conscious. I love originality and creativity in all forms.I believe in Radical Empathy.
I am a recovering alcoholic of 25 years. I have 2 alcoholic brothers who lived on and off the streets for years, and my mother endured mental illness. Thus, I have a soft spot in my heart for the homeless, poor, alcoholic, addicted, mentally ill; and, also for the elderly. Aging adults hold a library of wisdom just waiting to be gleaned. We are all stories waiting to be told.
