“My professional experience includes almost 30 years in education, with keen interests in neurodiversity, psychology, philosophy, neurosciences, indigenous medicine, fine art and learning styles, as well as advocacy for the rights of women, children, indigenous peoples, diverse beliefs, cultures, and traditions, and populations categorized as disabled, mentally ill and brain injured.
“My search has been to find a way to explain “alternative” experience (not considered “normal” in western culture) through logical language. Through a grounded, practical and even scientific approach, I bring left brain language to right brain and neurodiverse sensitivities (such as mystical experience and other “unusual” awarenesses). My certifications over three decades include Cognitive Behavior Therapy, BrainGym, VisionGym, Psych-K, trainings in leadership, trauma, sexual trauma recovery, family systems, and indigenous medicine, as well as my BFA degree in Arts and Education, GA State 1989. My life experience is too rich to list, so I wrote a few books to share them!
“I believe, experience and KNOW that we are much, much more than we are taught. Our brain and nervous system are complex and ever-evolving. We haven’t even begun to tap into all that we can do, all that we can know.
“We have the answers to our problems, questions and issues within us, but we have learned primarily to think with our left brains, accessing only a portion of our wisdom. The left brain dominance of our culture has led us to limit ourselves in our perceptions of who we truly are. [Tweet “Bridging the gap between the left and right brain to encourage whole brain thinking is my objective, so that we can easily reveal the answers to our conundrums, making us outside-the-box thinkers.”]
“I have also been a very keen observer of human behavior; this has made me an expert in spotting where folks are out of balance. Having had a difficult time as a child, I reached out in many ways to learn about myself and heal the parts of me that I was told were wounded. As I know now, not all of those assessments were true, but rather a perception of those authority figures who labeled me. This has made me wise to the ways of healing and the process of integrating our “inner tribe”.
“My life, as well as my work in the world, is firmly centered in wholeness, integration, and partnership. The union of our whole brain, and inner yin/yang, is accessed and our true power expressed through this attention to balance. My interest in wholeness arises from my experience, which shows me that integrating all aspects of ourselves is the kind, compassionate course to an actualized, joyous life.
“In 2003, my husband and 2 children realized we were off-course and headed toward a place we didn’t want to go. Culture and society held too many boxes for our unusual family. We sold everything and hit the road in a used RV, a true odyssey of spirit. 7 years later, we settled in northern Florida.
“This adventure utterly transformed my life. It was a deep healing vision quest that was a true initiation for us. The safe container of my family’s love for one another provided the intense alchemical cauldron needed for acceptance and transformation. Our perceptions of ourselves and each other changed. We had no idea how much we would learn about our family, or how much we would grow individually.
“Through my personal transformation, I was able to re-learn how to be in partnership with the immense beings that my children are, perceive their gifts and strengths, and to come into greater union with my beloved. I have also come through into my true power as a woman with a special mission on earth.
“I feel so blessed to have taken the time to be with my husband and sons in such a present, sustained way for those years. I’m writing a book now about our experiences and the learning that has taken place. To learn more about our journey, click www.berrytrip.us .”
