As a social worker, educator, single mother, artist, and rabbinic student I have spent my life exploring truth. At a young age I recognized that children express a truth that adults have covered up with defense mechanisms. Working with many children over the years I have recognized that we all hold our childhood selves deep inside. Uncovering those parts of ourselves allows us to lead more playful, enjoyable lives that can cultivate a deeper sense of self in our day to day living. This can lead to an authenticity that allows us to embrace our truest essence and leads to a life of deep fulfillment.
