Welcome to Our Stories of Awakening Part 2 For this episode, Ruby interviews me about my adventures on the spiritual path. I share how the universe gave me a huge wake up call at age 19 when I was a passenger in a car that went off a pier into the Puget Sound. I share the impact it had on my life and path, from deep realization to a planetary search to heal from PTSD. I explore some of the practices that have helped my own path as well as inspired me to work with others as a psychotherapist, including the surprise insight (that happened on a treadmill) that changed the playing field for my life and spiritual practice.
