“More than she was known for her accomplishments, she was known for the way that she loved.” - Morgan Harper Nichols

I recently met Erica, and my empathic sense lit up with the knowing that she has known a pain that I have known. My innate sense for feeling and desire for the intimate led to the birth of the healing session, and Erica’s was immensely cathartic for me. I love how she was able to emote so much without expressing it verbally or explicitly. I love this dance of feeling back and forth, and I want to share some of her moving words (of which, you can read the full post here)

“So how do I find peace on difficult? I return to nature, love – to gentle kindness and happiness. I return to Peter, who is all of these things to me. In a world that is often so harsh and abrasive, one of my greatest personal triumphs is always finding the time, room, and energy for kindness. I take heart in that and know that no matter what, I’m going to make a beautiful life for myself. I’m going to leave my campsite cleaner than I found it.

Compassion is such an underrated attribute that we nearly dismiss it altogether. Imagine if we paid better attention to sympathy and grace. What would happen if we all tried a little harder to be soft? I think the world would be a much nicer place if we valued gentleness as the strength it truly is.”
