You are here for a reason, and what you perceive to be a mistake (your pain, your suffering, your illness) is not a mistake at all. It is a radical opportunity to crack open, catalyze your potential, and embody who you really are. An opportunity you would have never consciously chosen, but something has led you here: to the underworld. The purpose in the underworld is not simply to “get better,” the purpose is to allow yourself to be initiated. People either fragment or transform in the underworld. I’m here to help you transform. To help you let go of who you thought you were, so that who you really are can emerge.
