Diana Raab I believe that the world can do without religion, but cannot do without spirituality — whether it takes the form of writing, mindfulness, compassion, or smiling throughout the day. Read more of my blogpost at Boomer Cafe.


message 16: by Diana

Diana Raab In general, writing can help us make sense of the events in our lives, and in my latest BrainSpeak blogpost, I discuss how confessional writing can provide a respite from hiding behind a veil of secrets.


message 15: by Diana (last edited Jul 15, 2015 03:51PM)

Diana Raab Is it Psychosis or a Spiritual Emergency? I explore the experience of a spiritual emergency and how, if managed and treated under supervision, it can be life changing and offer the individual a deeper sense of passion, wisdom, love, and zest for life. Read here on Psychology Today.


message 14: by Diana

Diana Raab This is the time of year when I reflect a lot about my father and his influence on my life. I also think about all those who were not as lucky as I was to have had such an amazing role model.

message 12: by Diana (last edited Jun 05, 2015 02:46PM)

Diana Raab In the writing workshops I teach, I advocate that writing can save your life. Using my own life as a compass, I suggest that when navigating difficult waters, we all need something to turn to—whatever tempers our stress levels. For some people, it might be exercise; for others it might be talk therapy. But for writers like myself, it’s about cracking open the journal or turning on my computer to create a story. Checkout my latest Psychology Today article to learn how to use writing to transform yourself.


message 11: by Diana

Diana Raab A recent birthday celebration reminded me of the importances of goddesses in our lives. We are different goddesses depending upon where we are in the life cycle. Athena, for example, puts career first, Hera puts marriage first, Artemis is the goddess of the hunt and saves other women and Aphrodite is the sensual lover. The wise woman arrives later in life. In my latest Psychology Today article , I discuss goddesses, their origins, and their roles.
