What attracted you to the Diamond Approach?: 

I came to the Diamond Approach at a time in my life when a lifelong sense of emptiness and a search for something to fill that emptiness came to a tipping point. My work in years of therapy had helped me immensely to uncover and move through a great deal of the pain of my childhood, but a longing remained. I heard about the Diamond Approach through a friend and I remember feeling at the first meeting a sense of relief, as though I were being given a drink of water after a long thirst. Over the years, that sense of emptiness has revealed its truer nature as a fullness of space, openness, aliveness and freedom. This manifests in my everyday life, in my painting, my time with children and grandchildren, my teaching, and my walks in nature. The unfoldment continues.
