Her workshop had a great turnout, as well as her personal counseling sessions. All in all a wonderful job at our center." - Rev. Kathianne Lewis, Senior Minister at Center for Spiritual Living – Seattle

Resentment – The Number One Killer
I thought for years that if I didn’t have the mother I had, I wouldn’t have been so screwed up. If I had boyfriends that were true and honest, I’d have felt loved. If I hadn’t gotten pregnant at sixteen, I’d get to do what I wanted to do, when I wanted to do it. These mental chains held me in a self-imposed prison until I decided to set myself free through forgiveness and taking responsibility for the part I played in my own life.
Is Your Inner Child Choosing The Love of Your Life?
What part of your consciousness is doing the choosing when it comes to the intimate partnerships in your life? Is it the inner wounded child (who can only attract another wounded child) or the emotionally balanced and mature adult.
Bet you've never thought about that, have you?
Well perhaps from a place of self-forgiveness, compassion and microscopic honesty, it's time to give this question some deep and serious thought.
In this past year and a half I have had the opportunity to heal the deepest pain I've ever experienced in my life with the exception of my father's transition when I was sixteen years old - so you can imagine...
But the gifts I've received from asking myself the hard questions, contemplation, meditation and forgiveness have been priceless - and because of the gifts I've received, I wouldn't change my journey for anything in the world.
