Whereas most nurses are very directive, that is not my favorite approach (although it has been fun to play the bossy role at times). The bodyworker-artist in me finds my own and other's difficulties intriguing. In relation to a healing or dealing with a habit, I can do all the linear list making a client could ever want, but what I really love and find most effective, is
collaborating. In regards to wellness, I don't personally like being told what to do, and I have found most autonomous, self-directed adults feel likewise. I like figuring things out with the light guidance of others. I like to be empowered in the process, not directed by an other's force (well meaning or not). So, creating relationship with one whom helps and making relationship with that which needs attention is an adventure worth exploring.
