~Somewhere, Sometime in the 1990’s~
Amidst a severe battle with depression and anxiety, a singularly unique little volume came into my hands. Neither sought out, nor by chance, it turned out that the concepts taught in this little volume would prove to be a saving grace to me for decades to come. On first read, like the placing of the last piece in a jigsaw puzzle, the depths of the low level depression I had experienced for most of my life simply lifted. It felt like a miracle. It was funny how amazing it felt to have "normal" blue days occasionally in contrast to that underlying insidious depression.
To be sure, there have been hiccups along the way. Periods during which this amazing concept I had learned would fade from my view in the busyness of daily life. But in every case, on realizing that I was sinking and that despair threatened, my little volume would be brought to my remembrance, sooner or later, allowing me to shake off the obstacles and forge ahead!
In time this little volume became the catalyst in the development of my ever deepening understanding and passion for the power of the mind-body-spirit model of holistic health. I went on to obtain a Bachelor's degree in this modality, as well as training and licensure as a Massage Therapist. I hope to share some of thoughts on holistic living with you through this blog.
