“Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.”
~ Pema Chödrön~

Authentic relationships are possible only when we have an awareness of who we truly are. When we can see through the mechanisms of the ego to the true spirit of another, we can dance within the paradox of human compassion and higher awareness. In this manner, we create space in which transformation can occur.

Holding space is far different than fixing someone else’s problems or seeking to ensure that they avoid pain. By honoring all paths as sacred, we operate from the premise of love and acceptance – allowing the lesson, offering support and sowing seeds of compassion.

Create your own sacred rituals of self-kindness and set aside time each day to make inner balance and well-being a priority. You’ll notice subtle changes in your thinking and expectations. Love yourself in such a way that your soul sparkles with magic and excitement and peacefulness.
