Often, there is a desire in us to come up with a unique contribution of work to make our mark on the world. I know that I have had that desire for many years. Will it assuage the pang of “why am I here or what I am I supposed to be doing with my life?”
Developing “Listening Bodywork” perhaps gives me a unique contribution, but it’s really about the simple truths.
My professional goals are making someone’s life more comfortable, more informed, more manageable. Here are some examples of the simple truths I hope to address:
- We all want relief from pain.
- We all want to be able to have our bodies do what we want them to do.
- We all want to be able to walk. That is primal. It appears that “driving” is next in line.
- We all want to laugh.
- Most of us want someone to really listen, “get it,” and be able to help.
- It’s nice to know your body well enough to understand its signals.
- It’s nice to know what to do when an injury happens, and understand the principles of healing.
- It’s nice to know how to prevent a pain or disability from recurring.
If I can address some of these simple truths, then I think that’s enough.
