My gift is helping. My purpose is service. That said, I am at a place in life where I want to do more of what makes me happy. What makes me happy is when at the end of the session, my client looks at me and I see hope in their eyes. What makes me happy is when a client smiles at the end of the session, happier for having discovered something new about themselves. Or when a client learns how to slow down and drop inside, how to hang out with whatever's happening long enough to study it and see what might be learned. Or when a client relaxes long enough and deep enough to say, "Oh…This is what safety feels like." I know I've done my job when a client, upon reflecting back over the work we have done together says, "I feel more whole. I feel more like myself. I am the person I was always meant to be."
I believe that problems begin in human relationships and problems are solved in human relationships. The work I do with clients at Ecclesia is about being more whole; more connected with oneself and with others. What makes me happy is when I can see before me a client who has learned how to connect with happiness and I hear the person I care about say, "I feel more whole."
