to the Healing Bridge.
call for individual and collective healing is more
pronounced than ever. Yet how can one know, trust and
embody genuine healing? It is a complex, universal
question evoking unique, surprising answers for each
a therapist, educator and researcher for 30 years I
am blessed to meet individuals who experience profound
transformations. I hear the disorientation and loneliness
they experience along with the recognition of a mystery
revealing itself. This spiritual pulse opens them to
the heart and soul of healing. Their innate wisdom
comes alive. Their trust deepens. And they realize
a renewed purpose—to
contribute to the betterment of the world--in their
own special ways.
We need to hear these stories to know we are not alone
as we walk through our personal odysseys in these times
of radical change. Thus the Healing Bridge Project was
founded in 1998 to bring both an informed and heart centered
voice to the nature and meaning of healing. Built on
in-depth interviews individuals around the world share
their inner journey of personal transformation. Each
story is bolstered by carefully selected links and supportive,
educational resources. And to be of greatest benefit
we enlist the positive potential of the internet for
global connection, dialogue and learning.
Healing Bridge’s commitment to integrative
health blends the personal with the social, the scientific
and spiritual, the emotional and physical, and the creative
with the factual. And through the integrity of our stories
we bring a truer, wiser understanding to a reality of
healing and the potential we all share.
am so very grateful to serve as director of this contribution
to integrative medicine. With the combined energy of
guests and you I trust we can build bridges of healing within and between.
