I can honestly say that the Dalai Lama made me do it…become an art therapist, that is. Meeting His Holiness in 1988 while working on a CBC documentary was a life altering experience. Although it would take another five years for the seed that was planted then to bear fruit, it was the beginning of a transformative journey that culminated in my decision to leave the frantic world of television production to pursue a graduate degree in psychology. In a previous incarnation (adolescence), it had been my dream to work as a psychotherapist but early marriage and the birth of two wonderful children took centre stage for many years.
