Ms. Ford, through her wonderful book, The Dark Side Of The Light Chasers, is the one who first introduced me to shadow work so many years ago. I have since read & enjoyed many of her other books and was saddened to hear her announce to Oprah last year that she had been living with cancer for years.
It was also a great irony that she admitted to hiding & denying that cancer, pushing it back into the shadows of her mind, living out the need for a lesson she had so graciously taught for years, a profound example of the old adage that we must teach what we most need to learn.
Debbie Ford taught me so much about shadow work & my quest to learn more about this ever-fascinating & enlightening subject is what led me to the work of Robert Ohotto last year. So- I suppose it is only fitting that it is he who informed me of her passing.
My thoughts & prayers go out to Ms. Ford's family, especially her beloved son, today, and I am filled with gratitude for the work of this most enchanting spirit.
THANK YOU, DEBBiE... R.i.P. -xo
