The Courage to Heal

One theme is to discuss the Courage  to Heal. I think it relates to…

1. What does it mean as a Healer to show up for a person to invite a space for healing to happen?

2. How can patients too have the Courage to stand in the face of anything and be brave enough to Heal?

Did you know that the word Anthroposophy means Human in Divine Wisdom? And furthermore the Divine Sophia (Feminine) Wisdom. Why does that matter? When we can know ourselves and be guided in such a higher force of Divine Wisdom then we may become or see our full human potential.

Anthroposophy gives me a lens to view the cosmos and all its facets for healing. We focus on what makes us healthy (salutogenesis). Out of this true healing is possible. My practice is guided in part by these approaches.
