Living a Conscious Life reflects being an "active participant" in the healing process. Some of this is relayed through the use of a bright palette. Each of these squares represents "working" through the healing process, from yoga and meditation to long therapy sessions identifying where the cancer came from and how it affects my personal relationships. It was much easier to say, "Of course I'm healed, I am no longer angry or guilty," than to admit that, after a diagnosis of Ewing's sarcoma twelve years ago, I'm still going through the healing process.
