When we do not live in alignment with our soul, we are cut off from an important aspect of ourselves that limits our life choices. We did not come here into this life to blindly follow the script set in motion when we were children.
At some point we begin to hear a voice inside of us that has it's own view of what makes us feel alive, excited and fully ourselves. Our body knows when our soul is speaking, there is a sense of magic and potential that guides our actions, fills our senses and offers clarity and purpose.
I came to Ocracoke Island nearly 30 years ago because I listened to this voice. I was asked to give up my identity as a professional and to invest in a community and habitat that required me to be my most authentic self.
Even with periods of despair, disillusionment and hibernation, I stayed, listened and learned. The island nourished my spirit and fed my hunger to evolve.
Island Path was forged on this passion of self creation. Photography helped me see the natural world more slowly and deliberately, placing me in deep relationship with all of nature, seen and unseen. Blending that with my training as a psychotherapist broadened my understanding and skills as a healer.
Island Path is a virtual destination for exploring oneself as well as the photographic beauty of Ocracoke Island, the most remote location in the Cape Hatteras National Seashore of North Carolina.
FOR 2019, Island Path is again hosting a weekend camp for writers, see Island Path Writing in our menu for details. Also, I am pleased and excited to announce that I have just finished a photo essay book entitled, "The Element of Water" that is available to purchase on our product page.
To paraphrase the immortal words of Robert Frost,
Island Path is the trail less traveled and that has made all the difference.
