To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee, One clover, and a bee. And reverie. The reverie alone will do, If bees are few.
Hello! I'm Jess and I'm a bodyworker, a TCM practitioner and I'm a writer. I love talking about what I do. I believe that shared experience builds communities. I believe that to build our healing community, I need to share what I do with you! You are a skilled practitioner, and you love what you do but sometimes the business end of things gets muddled.
My readers love that I am willing to say what needs to be said: that your services have value and it's okay for you to ask for it. That you can start from nothing and build your dream. And that we're a team - a community - and we need to build each other up. When you read my blog I want you to see that I'm not empowering you, you've always had the value and the power.
I'm not just a writer or a pracitioner. I'm a member of your tribe.
This project is a way for me to explore healing and teaching in a creative space. I'm looking forward to developing e-courses, ebooks and hopefully, one day even publish a physical book - I want to see my words on a shelf at Barnes and Noble. This is a lot of work but it's worth it. As I develop and create this blog, I'm also creating my dream being a writer and being a healer along the way.
Originally, The Reverie Alone was going to be a blog about my self-help book addiction called 'Shelfhelpless'. I'm keeping that idea alive with in what I'm currently reading or re-reading:

I'm currently re-reading Jen Sincero's "You are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living and Awesome Life."
I love this book because it's what first got me started on the path of writing again. It's been over a year since I've read it but I've been having the itch to pick it up again. I'm excited to see what I learn from it this time!
I'm also reading "Big Magic" (affiliate link) by Elizabeth Gilbert. I picked it up at the bookstore and immediately had to put Sincero's "You are a Badass" down until I finish it. They're both awesome but I've read Badass before. Big Magic's focus is creatives but as I harp on over and over again, healers are creatives. It's made me rethink patient interactions so much.
