I'm a retired Clinical Counsellor, became interested in life coaching, did some training in it but very recently found, I really am more of a counsellor than anything (professionally). Connecting with another at a heart level, is what is most meaningful to me at this point. Most interestingly, without connecting the 2 things, I also thought of David and sent a note to be in touch.

I met David in Vancouver, Canada a few times when he was here doing workshops, and we stayed in touch.

The great forests are the lungs of the earth. I myself have lung problems. When there are parts of the lungs that don’t work anymore one can run out of energy. It can strike suddenly. We will probably not do anything serious about climate change or wildlife extinction…
My medical condition continues to be a mystery. It is clear that I do not have any of the big nasty things - brain tumour, cracked skull, stroke, etc - as these have been ruled out by MRI investigation. Nonetheless I continue to have persistent, continuous head pain that varies in intensity and I become exhausted by the least effort so that I am functioning like an invalid incapable of doing very much. There is always a possibility that the whole syndrome is a…
“Do we know what it means to be struck by grace? It does not mean that we suddenly believe that God exists, or that Jesus is the saviour, or that the Bible contains the truth. Grace strikes us when we are in great pain and restlessness. It strikes us when we walk through the dark Valley of a meaningless and empty life.
