Inspirations

Right now I’m inspired by the work of Dan Siegel, Janina Fisher, and Bessel Van De Kolk, for their ongoing work in the field of post-traumatic growth. Kolk’s book “The Body Keeps The Score” is both very readable and comprehensive in its research-based wisdom. Janina Fisher has just published her new book called “Healing The Fragmented Selves of Trauma Survivors: Overcoming Internal Self-Alienation.”

I’m inspired by Jody Day, founder of Gateway Women, a website for women who are struggling with issues around fertility, or find themselves childless and without a tribe to belong to. Her work has helped to establish a global community of like-minded women.

I’m inspired by Krista Tippett who developed the website www.onbeing.com and has recently published her book called “On Becoming Wise.” Her gentle skill as an interviewer of people who are making a contribution to a better world, is wonderful nourishment, an ongoing source of hope.

Recently I’ve been inspired by reading Maureen Murdock’s book “The Heroine’s Journey: Women’s Quest for Wholeness.” I have decided to run a pilot workshop on her model of cyclic recovery (integration of the masculine and feminine) in the Autumn. (See Events to read the flyer.)
