Barbara's hope is that others will be inspired to embark on their own magnificent journeys despite the challenges of swimming in the deep waters of the Great Mystery. Her very human expressions of confusion, fear, grief, and excitement do not candy-coat this experience. She speaks of her current life as "Lifetime #2," feeling that she is not the person she was in the first half of her life. "The one thing that is the same is my Heart."

About the Author
This powerful transition from a constrictive Southern lifestyle to a heart-expanding exploration of her own passion and spirit was an adventure that shifted her journal writing to poetry. Metaphor was needed, as she had no more prose to express what was happening in her life. She had, in her words, "stepped into the Great Mystery."
Barbara's life and her work were deeply transformed. A licensed counselor who had lived in Virginia for more than fifty years, in 2000, she was called to move to Oregon where she later became a Usui Reiki Master Teacher and studied Tarot. She now offers spiritual guidance, Shamanic Sandtray Journeying, Tarot, and Energy Healing (with Reiki, sound, and stones.). Her joy is to encourage others to access and trust their own intuitive wisdom and healing. Loving to share her knowledge, she also teaches Tarot, Usui Reiki and a wide range of classes about the spiritual journey.
Now living in Bend, Oregon with her magical black cat Mana, Barbara is working on her next book about her experiences as a Shamanic Sandtray Journeying guide and the stories of others' unearthing of their deep wisdom and transformational power.
