Welcome to an oasis of calm, soothing gentleness, compassion, loving-kindness and self-nurturing in the midst of a crazy-making world.

Visit a while in space that honors, affirms and reclaims the way and the truths of the Sacred Feminine.

Come find spiritual inspiration, affirmation, practices for healing, wholeness and empowerment. Here rest is recognized as a sacred act; there is always permission to go only as fast as the slowest part of us feels safe to go.

Here treating ourselves with tender care is essential; delighting in our emerging selves is always celebrated. Here there is abundant support and sustenance for developing a fiercely protective, unconditionally loving Mother-within presence to help us carve safe space for ourselves and to help us compassionately re-parent the wounded little ones inside of us: our inner-children.

The Pathway link above opens gateways to exploring Taking More Gentle Care of Our Selves, Calming Our Inner Critical Voices, Keeping Safe Through the Difficult Times and The Magic of Resting and Going More Slowly.  Each of these four Pathways introduces you to a collection of my Rememberings and Celebrations Cards that speak to its particular theme. Selecting a Card whose message resonates for you in the moment will take you to a tale about the life journey during which that learning emerged. There are also links on each Pathway that will take you to longer stories relating to the theme you’ve selected.

The Tale Finder link takes you to a listing of short summaries for each tale paired with a Rememberings and Celebrations card. It provides an alternate route into exploring the depths, unfoldings and lessons tied to the cards.

The tales are also gathered in Go Only As Fast As the Slowest Part of You Feels Safe to Go; Tales to Kindle Gentleness and Compassion for Our Exhausted Selves  available at Amazon.com.

I am committed to trusting that, when it is time, a new sort-of-monthly or six-weekly Journal "blog" will emerge and be posted here sharing tales of how these earlier learnings are continuing to shape the ways I deal with whatever unfolds in my everyday life.  One of the Rememberings and Celebrations Card will be posted with it.

I stop to sit down, reflect and write only when something deep inside calls me to it. The call is completely unpredictable, though usually it comes late at night and near the end or middle of the month - unless, sigh, it doesn’t because it’s not yet time to step out of the flow and look at it.

To explore the possibility of one time, occasional or ongoing individual consultations (by phone or in person) for therapy/counseling/mentoring/coaching support on the journey, read about how I work at The Healing Journey, call me at 805 646-4518 or e-mail me at robyn@compassionateink.com. (I'm licensed in California as a Clinical Psychologist.)


I’d love to hear about what of any of this touches and nourishes you.  So, please do share your reflections and responses to any or all of what you find here.  Follow me at Compassionate Ink on Facebook,  join my Google+ Circle (Robyn Posin), Tweet your favorite affirmation  #goslowly or e-mail me at robyn@compassionateink.com. Remember to only go as fast as your slowest part feels safe to go and that rest is a sacred act.


The Rememberings and Celebrations Cards are available as a deck of 64 bookmark sized cards printed on recycled cardstock. The deck as well as poster cards, note cards, postcards and amulets filled with words and images to support your journey – as you honor the Little Ones Inside, the Sacred Feminine, going slowly and embracing all the ways that you feel with tenderness and compassion – are available at my compassionateink.com web site. That site includes a catalog of these offerings (Catalog of Treasures) along with information on how to obtain my published works (Publications) including the paperback, Kindle, iBook and Nook versions of Go Only as Fast as Your Slowest Part Feels Safe to Go: Tales to Kindle Gentleness and Compassion for Our Exhausted Selves and its companion "journal book," Embracing All the Ways That I Feel and Am: Journaling to Kindle Gentleness and Compassion for Our Precious Selves.
