Please understand that I am not a therapist, but I believe when people meet together with a common goal of personal growth, amazing things can happen. Do you mind sharing one or two of your personal goals with the group?

1- I want to continually develop my skills & impact as a "therapist" in community with other spiritual aspirants because it's my favorite way to grow. I believe that everyone has the ability to heal themselves & others. Therefore, I believe that we are all natural "therapists." The best "therapy" is based on empathy, authenticity, & loving-kindness. To be fully present with someone in pain requires me to be willing to encounter my own unresolved or deeply archived painful memories. This requires courage I don't always have -- but I have more courage than I did a few years ago, thanks to challenges I seek. 2- As co-organizer of this group, I hope to make helpful, edifying & perhaps even surprising contributions to each members' experience.

Whatever is shared with the group will not be repeated outside the meetup. Do you agree to respect others' privacy and trust that your privacy will also be respected? Do you have any comments or questions regarding this?

Safety is good. Good boundaries make good neighbors.


I had two life-threatening illnesses after years of medical care. I finally turned to complementary alternatives & experienced astonishing results. What astonished me most: my healing was based on forgiveness, a new path that has led me here.

What Janelle is saying about this Meetup Group

So far I have met a couple of members & it seems like a nice bunch of folks. I look forward to meeting more Aspirants in the future.
