"I believe tackling one’s life and one’s deficiencies is heroic.
It often feels like a crusade that takes all we’ve got."
A word from Breck
It is my hope and wish that you will find what you are looking for here. I have been a consultant/coach for over thirty years and it has been my pleasure to work with thousands of people from all different walks of life. To get invited into the issues and concerns, the fears and the shame, the mistakes and the failures, the hopes and the fantasies, the dreams and the celebrations of people’s lives, has been an honor.
What is Freedom?
Freedom is a language, like any other language, it has many tenses and the more fluent, the more access, the more benefit. Freedom means many things to many people. At the most basic level, there are certain fundamental necessities: to have a full stomach; to feel safe; to be sheltered and clothed; to able to learn and develop; to be exposed to possibilities; to be loved; to believe what you want without fear of repercussion.
“I think it’s a mistake to ever look for hope outside of one’s self. One day the house smells of fresh bread, the next of smoke and blood. One day you faint because the gardener cuts his finger off, within a week you’re climbing over corpses of children bombed in a subway. What hope can there be if that is so? I tried to die near the end of the war. The same dream returned each night until I dared not to go to sleep and grew quite ill. I dreamed I had a child, and even in the dream I saw it was my life, and it was an idiot, and I ran away. But it always crept onto my lap again, clutched at my clothes. Until I thought, if I could kiss it, whatever in it was my own, perhaps I could sleep. And I bent to its broken face, and it was horrible…but I kissed it. I think one must finally take one’s life in one’s arms.”
