Despite striving to be recognized and valued as an author, college professor, and spiritual maverick, I constantly faced a sense of unworthiness that originated from childhood. I sought refuge in the performing arts, adventure, and travel, but I soon discovered that these were just distractions. At the age of 31, I had a profound encounter with trees that I initially closed myself off from. This left me feeling lost and confused. Now, I understand and trust the message the trees were trying to convey. I recognize that my empowerment grows stronger by trusting my inner voice, and fearlessly confronting those who overlook the wisdom of the earth, trees, animals. This is what I draw upon in my writings for Jenuine Healing.
