AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME,
Welcome To My Website
A place to meet together to explore healing; your own and other people’s. Healing is not a work of perfection or expertise. We are all healers. We heal with our wholeness, our humanity, all of our life experience, even our wounds. Our own wounds make us gentle with the wounds of others and able to trust the mystery of healing, not as a theory but from lived experience. Our vulnerability connects us to the vulnerability in others in compassionate and loving ways.
Healing is actually a worldview, a cosmology…. For a healer, the world is not broken and in need of fixing… the world is hidden. Everything and everyone has in themselves a hidden wholeness, a potential for growth, a dream of themselves. A healer reminds people. A healer befriends dreams. A healer is a feeder of dreams.
I am re-reading your book My Grandfathers blessing after several years. I read a chapter daily. Often the stories bring me to tears. they move me so much and inspire me. The stories truly have the power to heal.Leland, Albany, NY
Thank you for Kitchen Table Wisdom. I read it for the first time, and then I immediately read it again. You have put into words the beliefs that I have been forming since my mother passed away from ALS two years ago. The human spirit is a powerful thing. Your writing is a gift. Thank you for sharing it.Nancy, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
I just wanted to let you know that I love reading your books. Every now and then I read a few stories since I keep it next to my bed. I really like the way you put your experiences in words, they inspire me in many ways. Thank you for sharing your lessons in life.
I wish you all the best,

I see the white feather everywhere I go now. I picked your tape up (What the Living Can Learn From the Dying) with no intention of listening to it, it was for resale. Listening to it was to keep me from boredom on a two hour road trip across Florida last month. Imagine my surprise. Have now read most of your work and my life has done a U-turn since much of your advice saw me through crisis with my son and grandson. Thank you so much for you gentle yet awesome look at wholeness, dying and mystery.Linda, West Palm Beach, Florida
I had the great fortune to come across your book in a used bookstore. I was intrigued by the deletele and picked it up. I’m grateful that I did. I have been struggling with a chronic illness for years now, and I found a great deal of comfort from your message of healing. I especially have kept in mind your insight that life isn’t just for the well. I realized that I had been putting off celebrating and enjoying life because of my illness. I now try to live more fully and authentically, knowing that life, love, and healing can be for me, too. Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom.

Well worn and ear marked pages of both of your books are at my bedside and in my car. I can’t imagine my life without the lessons and wisdom I continue to learn from you. Every morning I start my meditation saying, “Blessed art thou Oh, Lord my God, King of the Universe…” and I reach out to all the amazing wonders of our world and life with your gift of gratefulness in mind. Thank you for sharing yourself so unselfishly. You are always at the top of my list to share with family, friends and strangers.

A blessing is not something that one person gives another. A blessing is a moment of meeting, a certain kind of relationship where both people involved remember and acknowledge their true nature and worth, and strengthen what is whole in one another.
In 1962 when I graduated from Medical School the goal of medicine was cure. Anything less was considered failure. Yet many things that bring people to us cannot be cured. Fortunately cure is not the only successful outcome of […]
