So….. I’ve met with Linda K from the Transformational Arts College re: Spiritual Psychotherapy program. From what I see now, it seems a wonderful fit for all I love. She gave me the reading list for the program, and so many of those are books I already have read / plan to read.
Authors include: Caroline Myss, Wayne Dyer, Doreen Virtue, Esther Hicks, Louise Hay, Eckhart Tolle and so on.
Regarding hesitations about my future competence, she shared that the program does prepare students to work one-on-one with clients. (I have a deep fear of never knowing the “right” question to ask, how to gently propel someone towards self-reflection… ) Therapy isn’t about the therapist. It’s not about what I bring, who I am, what I say. For sure, there are qualifications to being a therapist, but when the focus is shifted away from self, conversation can flow naturally from a grounded place of respectful curiosity and supportive exploration.
The first Total Self course, Meditation & the Chakras, starts on Thursday, November 9th. I have to actually register, but i wanted to journal all of this in my blog to capture the journey!
This is supremely exciting for me. I am grateful and thrilled to embark on this new adventure. May it serve the Universe. 🙂
