Let’s Talk About Counselling

LET'S TALK ABOUT COUNSELLING If the idea of counselling makes you uncomfortable, you're not alone. Most of my clients have said it took them a really long time to gather the courage to contact me. They've also said they wish they'd done it way sooner! If you've never seen a counsellor before, you might share some [...]

Let’s Talk About Listening

Check out this month's article in The Fishbowl Magazine! Let's Talk About Listening One of the biggest challenges in any relationship is that of establishing effective communication. It's easy to get fired-up about getting our own point across, but it can sometimes be challenging to hear another's position with equal enthusiasm. The most important skill we [...]

Sometimes, we just need someone to be there…

  One of the hardest things to learn how to do is to simply be present with people and their pain... To allow pain to just be... To refrain from trying to change pain, or fix pain, or erase pain, or escape, forget, or relieve pain... But instead to simply and powerfully bear witness to a [...]

Male Affection: A Photographic History Tour / The Art of Manliness

  The idea that North American men are profoundly deprived of healthy, connective, non-sexual touch has been coming up a lot lately - with friends, colleagues, clients, and in the media.   I'm not talking about the standard back-slapping & perfunctory hugs most men are accustomed to here. I am talking about a whole other kind [...]

Choices…

My stepfather was a violent man. I remember being a young child, and asking my mother why he did the things he did. I remember that she told me he couldn't help it - that he had been raised like that, and didn't know any better. I remember thinking that was the biggest load of BS [...]

On Death

        All passings are related, but they are not the same. They are related in the way that all things are related. They are part of the All One - the greater fabric of this thing we call humanity.   There is a call now, for us to begin to understand mortality in [...]

The Gift… (original post at facebook.com/TeronWolf)

Sometimes the universe hands you a gift, and accepting it goes against every bit of common sense you've ever heard. But that kind of sense is called common for a reason. To live an extraordinary life - you've got to embrace uncommon sense. You've got to do the thing that puts a big smile on your [...]

Not our children’s job… (original post at facebook.com/TeronWolf)

      Messages sometimes come to me in my dreamtime. This came last night:     It is not our children's job to do as we tell them.   It is our job as their parents, teachers, elders, guides to illustrate to them why we have made the suggestion.   It is our job to [...]

Daughters & Self-determination: I’m with Jada & Will Smith on this one… (original post at twolfblogspot.tumblr.com)

Raising my own two daughters, I went to great lengths to teach them empowerment, self-determination, self-confidence, self-respect and a plethora of other “woman power” values. With the undeniable aid of the Spice Girls, and some amazing female friends, I think I did a pretty good job.   One of the biggest challenges, was teaching my girls [...]
