Introducing myself and my journal: Myth Hunter

About Me:
From the time I was a young child losing my parents and family and being raised in the foster care system taught me that adversity could either make or break me and that change is the only unchanging variable in life. Now I am a social psychologist with over 20 years experience working with diverse populations promoting human potential and change. Working with my personal life myth has been integral to discovering my own potential and facilitating the change in my life.
I am currently a Doctoral candidate in social psychology exploring how life myth work facilitates the experience of being alive, informs relationships and makes meaning. Drawing on Process Work and cutting edge research that explores dreams, memorable events and indigenous ways of knowing I am working to help people creating meaningful ways of life and relationship.
In addition to my personal & relationship myth work, I also coordinate a Bay area program training young adults transitioning out of the justice and foster care system to conduct social justice workshops as part of their intrapersonal and interpersonal healing work.

My Passions:
Mystery, Questioning, Learning, Teaching, Writing, Music, Reading, Movies, Food

My Challenges:
Survivors Guilt, No Family, Money, Self-Confidence,

My Vision for the Future:
Conduct Workshops, Conferences and do Public Speaking around Personal and Relationship Mythology

My Areas of Expertise:
Personal & Relationship Mythology, Navigating the unknown, Overcoming major life challenges, loss, trauma

Welcome

We are so honoured to have you as a member of our community. I have not had personal experience with the foster care system but know how we have failed the children who age out, abandoning them with little support. Your contributions are so vital and I know that you will be able to transform lives as you share your knowledge, dreams, ideas and hopes with the community. You will find inspiring women here who have courageously confronted the inner conflict that has arisen from the difficult environment they found themselves in. I encourage you to reach out to other members, or start a dialogue by commenting on another journal entry.

Also, did you know that you can build powerful networks through PulseWire Groups (http://www.worldpulse.com/pulsewire/groups)? I would love it if you would share your ideas, articles and thoughts on helping women reach their true potential by tapping into the spirit and potential within. We all forget to believe in ourselves sometimes and it helps to have that little reminder, every now and then.

There are just so many amazing groups here, full of inspired and strong voices. I have no doubt you will find PulseWire to be engaging and thought-provoking. Welcome to the sisterhood of rising voices.
