If we have no peace,
it is because we have forgotten that
we belong to each other.
- I am Martina McGowan, the mother and Ma-mere (grandmother) of 3. I am a physician (gynecology), author, poet, writer, mentor, ceramicist, and artist. I have been teaching, mentoring, and supporting people for over 40 years. I work with people to build safe spaces, personally and professionally, where lives can be examined, and possibly transformed.
“The unexamined life is not worth living” Socrates
I am a life-long learner and feel strongly that we are each capable of so much more if we can manage to get out of our own way.
I am a writer, a student of life, people, literature, and more than that, I am a seeker, and sharer of knowledge, wisdom, and truth.
I have been blessed with: (a) a discerning spirit, (b) an open heart and mind, (c) an uncommon dose of common sense which I have earned in the school of hard knocks, and at my mother’s and grandmother’s knees, (d) the abiding belief that deep listening is the most important thing we can nurture in ourselves and others.
What are my goals:To share my obsession with creating and being a catalyst in the transformational change of people in their personal and professional lives by working with individuals and organizations helping them return to the heart of their missions, or creating one while treating their employees with respect.
- To provide a creative outlet for myself and others.
- To provide a place to organize my thoughts and become more intentional in how I proceed in the world these last 20 or so summers left to me; while teaching others do the same.
- To help build and support community. To share and collaborate with a group of like-minded people, so we can each continue to grow and learn, add value, and be blessings in the lives of others. I believe that we are blessed so that we may be a blessing to someone else! We walk in the Light so that we may share the Light.
Please join me as a participant and co-laborer in this journey by suggesting topics, sharing content and insights, commenting, providing honest feedback, and digging a little deeper to answer life’s questions, answers, and callings.
We can work together for coaching or mentoring.
Please feel free to contact me for reading, teaching, speaking, and writing engagements.
May our time together be richly blessed.
Peace and Grace,
