One Step [a poem]

By Cara Amy Goldthorpe | Featured Contributor

One step 
I take, and another 
Towards this light 
Pulling me on 
One step 
Through a tunnel of shadow 
Pain and burden 
I feel before I rise

For there is no escaping 
No shortcut for mortality’s weeping 
That we must live and breathe 
Through every second 
The lessons come 
To prepare us for 
The stairway up to

Hola, I’m Cara. Formerly a practicing lawyer, I’m now a storyteller, mentor, and holistic health practitioner. Life took me down an unexpected path when I was locked down in Costa Rica at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. This catalyzed me to leave behind my legal practice in London and devote my attention toward my creative projects as well as developing my knowledge in the field of holistic health.

In my early twenties, I suffered from a number of chronic health issues. Those experiences sowed the seeds for my current change of life path. My mission is to inspire and empower others to find their own inner guidance, to live healthier, happier, and more harmonious lives. I am trained in Craniosacral therapy and have been receiving ongoing mentorship from a shaman. I offer mentoring, 1-1 healing sessions (both in person and online), and am also working ceremonially with cacao as a plant medicine.
