When I first walked into the Inner Focus Advanced Energy Healing School in 1995, I was looking for help. Past injuries were not healing well. I often felt ungrounded and emotionally buffeted. I had tried several different therapies and had been on anti-depressants for a little while, but nothing was “fixing the problem”.
Today the book is available on line. The publication of Lawyers as Peacemakers, Practicing Holistic, Problem-Solving Law, inspires me to share that it takes a village to write such a book. Below are the contributors and the acknowledgements from the book. Make sure to click through to "Read More" for the complete list.
With deep thanks to my collaborators and contributors:
Michael Matthews, my business partner, dear friend, and wonderful
and wise teacher, who constantly listens to me and holds space better than anyone I’ve ever known.
Editor and friend Sheila Boyce, for her willingness to step on my toes when it was called for, and ABA Editor Erin Nevius, for actually liking what I had to say.
Karen Werve Grant and Michael Grant, great writers and friends, who stepped up to work on the profile vignettes.
Eileen Dunn, Jane Faulkner, and Jill Dahlquist, who helped take care of the parts of me that are not my mind.
We launched one month ago - at midnight on March 3, 2009. A lot of people have asked me how things are going. Basically I'm pretty pleased.
I didn't want to mix topics in the blogs but did want to also write about our gathering in Milwaukee last night. Past president of the IACP, Sue Hansen hosted us in her snazzy, well-designed, well-located office. Jill Dahlquist and Judge Mary Triggiano were there. We had a great meeting, discussion, and visit. Michael taped it and we'll post excerpts later.
I want to spend more time putting together gatherings where we go. They make a difference!
There is a lot going on here but I wanted to check in before heading off to Steve Keeva's house because I know that I will have lots to report when I get back.
Milwaukee is great. We've both been surprised at how much we like the city. No doubt that summer temperatures in the 70's have a lot to do with that! If we came back in January, we might have a different experience. But, we know this: the people have been fabulous. Jill, Jim and Jennifer have been great hosts and are so supportive of our getting the web site up and running.
