This is a visual memoir of a women's healing circle held for a woman who had suffered greatly from a series of miscarriages.
I have always been interested in the alchemy of process. I began in the '60s, recording the cultural wave I rode in the midst of the rock music industry in California. As an adult, I have been drawn to personal transformations, either as a lay midwife, hospice counselor, or disaster mental health counselor, and now as a psychotherapist. It is when an individual is presented with an opportunity to become more than they could ever have imagined, that the beauty of the human soul reveals itself. I offer to stand as guide or witness to this process, sometimes with my camera in hand.
