A cage in search of a bird…Kafka for children

Fmme writes poems

There once was a cage
that longed for a bird –
it was lonely and sad,
it was empty and bored;

Degree Specialty Change

Just a line to share that I’ve changed the specialty for my additional doctorate through the University of Sedona. I chose Theocentric Psychology. According to its founder, Dr. Paul Leon Masters:

It is a path for one who either has attained or is seeking illumination of consciousness or mystical union with God, knowing that through such experience, life and its issues and complexities are resolved through God’s Guidance: “seek first the Kingdom of Heaven, (God’s Presence within you) and all else shall be added unto you.”

I chose this because for me, it’s a way to address everything (every thing) from a spiritual foundation. My creative work is a means of self-expression for me, a form of emotional release, as well as a reminder and expression of the spirituality that is the Source and Inspiration for my life. Whatever I do and wherever it takes me, the concepts taught in Theocentric Psychology will apply, and can be shared. It doesn’t change the kind of work I do, only the degree program I chose.

Thanks for reading!
