Sacred Truths

Emmy Graham

Sacred Truths examines the drive to express one's Truth authentically. In Kundalini Yoga there is something called the Subtle Body that is closely related to the soul. When strong, it gives us mastery, calmness, and subtlety. When we express ourselves subtly, when we are refined, we connect to our authenticity, our soul's purpose.How do people connect and live by their subtle body? Sacred Truths: first-person accounts of finding meaning in life.

Dami Roelse: Author, Walking and Life Coach
Dami Roelse is an author, certified life coach, and an avid hiker. Born in Holland, she has traveled the world and as a young woman, began her spiritual quest by traveling to India in search of answers.  By her late 50s, and while suffering through a personal loss, Dami revisited India where a trek through the Himalayas brought illumination and peace. Since then, she has become an avid hiker/backpacker and has hiked most of the Pacific Crest Trail, including the John Muir Trail, and across the entire states of Washington and Oregon. She has also hiked parts of the Himalayas, including a Mount Kailash Kora (or pilgrimage) in Tibet, considered Asia’s holiest mountain. Most of her treks took place while in her 60s and 70s. Dami uses her passion for long distance hiking and backpacking as a means to deepen her connection with nature and the universe. Dami is enthusiastic about leading and mentoring women over 50, in the third phase of life, on the physical and spiritual benefits of walking and backpacking, and she serves as a model for redefining the aging process for women.  She has written a book Walking Gone Wild: How to Lose Your Age on the Trail directed to women over 50. Her latest book  Fly Free, a memoir of love, loss and walking the path is a journey of spiritual and physical exploration as she deals with the loss of her life partner and goes on a trek in the Himalayas.  I spoke to her in 2020 at her home in Ashland, OregonMusic by Manpreet Kaur, @manpreetkaurmusic

Terry Lillian Segal: Life Celebrant/Bodyworker
Terry Lilian Segal’s Life Path as a professional practitioner in the fascinating realm of the Healing Arts, began in 1992, following her recovery from an injury she’s sustained as a river guide while rowing a boat down the Grand Canyon. Terry draws from an array of practices, while honoring the Universal Wisdom that underscores them all.  Her skilled touch practice includes various forms of Massage, Bodywork & Energywork, most notably the Art of Zero Balancing.  “ZB” is a refreshing, concise and elegantly effective therapy that gently “unwinds” old injuries and holding patterns by accessing the powerful flows that move through the bone.  One comes away from a “ZB” session empowered and refreshed, with a deep sense of well-being, inner balance and alignment, improved functionality. The multidimensional nature of this technique, and the profound wisdom of its fundamental working principles, inform not only Terry’s style of touch, but also speak to every aspect of life.  All of Terry’s offerings serve to foster the sacred healing journey back to Wholeness, back to Essence.  With this in mind, she also serves as a Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant,  where she custom-designs and officiates intention-based ceremonies and rituals meant, such as Coming-of-Age Ceremonies, Renewal of Vows, Life Tributes for the living and those who have passed,… mindfully honoring any meaningful life transition or event.  Terry’s deep love for Life,  for wilderness,  community, and the arts all weave into the signature of her work.  Having spent decades on the West Coast, Terry currently resides in Cleveland, Ohio.For more information, or to work with Terry, please visit: Terry Lilian Segal | United States | Meaningful MilestonesMusic by Manpreet KaurThis interview was conducted in 2019.
