Personal Statement about Training Program:
Sometimes it seems to me that we suffer form Mirroring Defect Disorder. If we haven't yet learned how utterly unique and one-of-a-kind we are, we use an off the shelf self and (naturally) feel dissatisfied with it. But getting the heart of who we are now rolling into the world, we come alive and carry forward. My interest is in recognizing and helping the unique one we are to awaken and take it's place.
