To Give or not to Give? Are you helping or enabling?

There are times when we think we are helping someone when in fact they might not be ready to change. Knowing when to give and when to back off can be quite empowering. In this video I share what helps me to discern the difference.

Ancestors Walk ~ Healing the Wounds with My Mother ~ Janese Derrough

All twenty-five of us stood against the two walls across from each other. We were all blindfolded and could not see anything. We could only hear Wilbert Alix, our workshop guide, in the background instructing us on how we would do the Ancestor’s walk. As we stood with our blindfolds on, we were to imagine […]
