In October of 2018 I was invited to speak at a personal development event that was part of a series of events called The PDA Tour. This tour - and the talk that I did - is featured in a new mobile app called The Personal Development App, or The PDA.
The app is free to download, and the huge amount of content in the app is free to experience too. Once you launch the PDA, make sure to find me inside sharing my message. And make sure you come back often; I plan to share a lot more!
By touching a body, we touch every event that has impacted it. For a few brief moments we hold all of a client's stories in our hands. We witness someone's experience of their own flesh, through some of the most powerful means possible: the contact of our hands, the acceptance of their body without judgement, and the occasional listening ear. With these gestures, we reach across the isolation of human experience and hold another person's legend. In massage therapy, we show up and ask in so many ways, "What is it like to be another human being?" In doing so we build a bridge that may heal us both.
