A life of feeling stalked.
Imagine what it would be like to live life constantly expecting a crisis to happen – always on the alert for some kind of threat or emotional trauma?

I’d like it to focus on the relational aspects of living life in hiding and address the religious/legalistic roots of guilt and shame based creation of anxiety. But, that just doesn’t give the Google Bots warm fuzzies…
So, the above linked is the best summary I can create of how you do nothing more then put a bandaid on stress, anxiety and panic — in hopes that it can maybe draw some people into longing for much more then a bandaid…Read more
