"Therapy "-Origin: mid 19th century: from modern Latin therapia, from Greek therapeia 'healing', from therapeuein 'minister to, treat medically'

I have been in therapy for almost 2 years now. I went because my marriage was ending. I began seeing a therapist who was suggested by someone who I highly respect. I have heard that it's rare to find the right therapist for you the first time but I did it. Her name is Kristina Lund. She has helped me in ways big and small and I've learned so much about myself and feel that therapy with her has made me whole. At first I went every week, and then when I told her that I had the best summer of my life last year, she said I didn't need to come every week,once a month is fine. I continue to go once a month. Just as I get regular massage and exercise regularly I also need to check in emotionally. I have worked with sacred psychology through my lessons with the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids. The coursework defined therapy as "healing by becoming whole." I was not only working on my spirit, but my psyche and emotions through this amazing self-paced, home study course. I'd like to share a quote with you from one of the lessons.

"Many spiritual and esoteric teachings present us with the goal of perfection. We are urged to develop our "higher selves," mastering or eliminating the desires of the "lower self." But Druidry, in common with other Earth Religions and the newer disciplines of the spiritual psychologies, presents us with the goal of wholeness or completion rather than perfection." In Druidry, we are not seeking perfection, but wholeness and at-one-ness with all nature."


  1. Great article Ray. Have been through therapy along with Buddhism and exercise it all seems to work. Much love brother
