Jonh's personal objectives are to continue to heal, which is especially trying these past several years because of untreated clinical stress that morphed into PTSD. I am trying a variety of "modalities" for healing, and continue to track my progress in preparation for communicating how to heal from the one-two punch. I make progress every day and I look forward to sharing what I am learning.m very encouraged by the number of people in my personal and professional network who want to help however they can to accomplish this mission.
