A Masters-prepared psychiatric nurse, sound healer, poet, author, grandmother, theater director, yoga & Tai Chi practitioner, and through it all/due to it all, guided by my dreams. For 15 years, I held a psychotherapy practice based on the dream work of Carl Jung. However, with my own dreams insisting that I perform for the feminine and nature in churches, I left clinical practice, and in my 40’s, chose an uncharted path. I journeyed to the spiritual community of Findhorn in northern Scotland where, purposefully, my life course redirected.
