Who am I? Why am I here? These questions became the focus for my spiritual quest. They guided me through many dark days of confusion and loss.

This process of journeying was a tearing apart of what I had known. Words became my way of making sense out of the anguish I was experiencing. Once I was able to touch the uncontrollable fear, isolation, separation, and rejection, I was free at last. I was able to define my own situation and to problem solve.

Touching my feelings was a foreign language for me. My poems became the road map for traveling into the inner world and unearthing long buried treasures to obtain validation and self-acceptance. They became my soul’s way of revealing the Divine Light within.

I worked with my dreams, visualization, journaling, active imagination, and imagery to unravel the whereabouts of the traumas. These tools traveled with me to Hades’ world to locate the treasure. They became the guides moving me towards self-knowledge. Moreover, they were the helpers I used for dealing in a creative way with the many buried energies of the traumas. These, which were traumas of separation, poverty, loss, fear, isolation, powerlessness, helplessness, insecurity and abandonment, became the opportunities for journeying through darkness, journeying within the birthing chamber and towards light.

The poems are therefore my personal journey of transformation. They were for me a process to reconnect to my own inner knowing that in turn led me to a deeper understanding of the who I was and the who that needed to be recognized. They became the mirror to see me and to enhance my humanity and honor the earth’s pulse of the motion of life. They led to the expanding of my self-esteem and the viewing of my world in a more comprehensive way.

As an Interfaith Minister and Spiritual coach, I guide others to find their hidden wonder. Teaching the how to for dealing with what life throw at them. Assisting with replacing the old personality by implementing specific tools for addressing the deep feelings, and finding creative ways towards positive change.

My goal as a Certified Nutritional Consultant and health educator, I teach others how health is a personal responsibility. I design individual nutritional programs and counsel other to utilize nutrition for optimum well-being.

“As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.”  -Carl G. Jung,  from Memories, Dreams, Reflections

Born into an Italian family of five, I was the middle child and the authority was the wooden spoon. I love going to the public library and reading books.  I was always a dreamer and seeker and this desire lead me into a religious order. Where after 21 years I out grew the conditioning and again I traveled to know the who I was.

Later in life I found my true self- the writer and poet. Writing poetry was my therapy to touch my feelings and become free. The fruits of this journey became my book: Winter’s Mystery-Time To Go Within:Spiritual Journeying.

Writing and publishing my book brought forth a way to empower me and believe that I  was capable. This task pushed me beyond what I ever imaged I could do. Yes, it was challenging and I had to learn many things that I never dreamed possible. But; the day came and I held my book in my hand and signed it for others. My childhood dream of becoming an author became a reality.

The process of journeying was a tearing apart of what I had known. Words became my way of making sense out of the anguish I was experiencing. Once I was able to touch the uncontrollable fear, isolation, separation, and rejection, I was free at last. I was able to define my own situation and to problem solve.

There is nowhere else to go to find wholeness than inside. This door must be opened and entered in order to exit from the trauma. Begin again and again until you find that which you seek.

I have been recognized as a quality indie author of: “Winter’s Mystery-Time to go Within:Spiritual Journeying“. This collection of poems and photographs became my poetic memoir-the words set me free.
