No matter how long or hard the winter, spring will come again
Unfurl from Bud to Blossom
Koru is a word from the indigenous Maori people of New Zealand, it means loop. The Koru is associated with fresh starts, rejuvenation, renewal, and the cycle of rebirth, seen in nature each year at springtime. The coiled green fiddlehead is one of the first plants to emerge from the ground when winter comes to an end. Spirals and loops are found in nature and in the artworks of carvings, paintings, jewellery, and design details. The carved coil shape is also seen in the upper portion of a cello or violin. The shape is found in the spiral of seashells, and in the cosmos itself. The Koru is often seen in body art, personal tattoos with a number of possible versions chosen by women and men for its special symbolism and what it represents to a person.
Spring Always follows Winter
The Koru reminds us that no matter how long or dark the winter has been spring will follow with its potential for revitalization, new growth, and a renewed sense of peace and optimism. As mere mortals, we humans are sensitive, sometimes in life distressful circumstances bring us down. Winter can feel long and isolating. And for some, “Winter” can be experienced not only as an environmental season but also as an internal cold dark place where life and interpersonal concerns dim the light… The aim of my work is to provide soothing compassionate care, helping to illuminate a path up and out from the darkness of winter. The Koru’s meaning also includes protection, peace, optimism, vibrancy, and health.
My intention with this blog/website, as with my work, is to help people feel better. Together we find insight and peaceful solutions to complex feelings and situations that arise from personal and interpersonal experiences, and challenges.
Personal awareness, improved wellness, and a greater sense of inner freedom result from this work. Heart to heart compassionate listening is at the core of this work along with skills honed from three decades of counseling, group work, exploration, educational presentations, and writing.
Terra, thank you! You set me on the path to safety and recovery. The hours we spent together have stayed with me. I hold the work we did as a sacred gift. I am able to access your healing insights, words and strength whenever I need them now. Your calming tone and ability to help me keep me going, keep me strong. I feel nourished by your mentoring and your tremendous encouragement after I came so close to giving up and to death. You were my solid ground, you were crystal clear in all the ways I needed. Your words, compassion, and strength gave me the life saving hope I needed to continue on when I hit bottom. I am so deeply grateful to you. I feel free now. Thank you so much. T.E. AZ, USA

Dear Terra, I was a witness to how you helped that woman during the group session. You gently guided her out and up from that very dark and painful place she was in. She looked completely transformed afterward. I look forward to working with you again.” Thank you. – Jean
