The vision has always been to help people get well or achieve specific goals, like getting pregnant or sleeping better. To facilitate a state of wellbeing or ‘ease’ in a client using tools such as acupuncture is only one part of it. Crucially, it is the significance given to bear witness to stories and the search for the clues that enable healing, because it is in the stories we find meaning and solutions. My vision is not to heal but to facilitate healing for an individual using the skills that I have. I am a facilitator in that persons goal at that point in time using my tools to best enable that, Acupuncture, reflexology, massage, listening, instructing, advising. I liken it to a process of cartography in the map of health, finding patterns and conduits through which to facilitate change for a client.
When we talk about vision we talk about hope, hope is what motivates, propels and gives momentum to change. Clarity of vision and hope can be tricky amidst a COVID Lockdown when normal doesn’t really exist anymore. But there is an undercurrent of hope that our new normal might contains some seeds of newfound ways of being, a clearer recognition of what’s important, a sharpened view of what humanity actually needs, new ways we can be kinder and show a deeper respect for mother earth and each other.
