Brick walls, bottomless wells, and psychological edges

Not all edges are alike. In my experience, there are the hard edges — impenetrable, brick walls — that resist our efforts to climb over, around, or through and leave us scraped and bloodied and crumpled in a heap. And then there are the amorphous edges — bottomless wells — that swallow and drown us with the lack of orienting ground. We may drift submerged for a while. Have you met one of these edges? The edge is a psychological limit we hit inside ourselves. What edges have in common is there's no way to cross the edge in which the “I” as we’ve known ourselves to be can stay the same. We’re on the brink of something unknown and new. Most edges are consciously felt in the face of loss. Perhap

About this blog

Welcome! You'll find a mix of writings here about cultivating an embodied life. Some posts are educational topics I teach in therapy. Others reflect on awareness, compassion and radical intimacy with the present moment as helpful dispositions in navigating life.

My intention, no matter what the subject, is to support your unique unfolding toward greater wholeness, creativity, and aliveness. As Howard Thurman says, '“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
