Dottie was an internet pioneer whom I met through her Pathwork Circle in 2000 or 2001. She created a safe place online where people were invited to take responsibility for their inner world, both lower self aspects as higher self aspects. Even though she was very present and supporting, she created space for everyone in the group to show ourselves in all our diversity.
I remember the inner upheaval the attacks on the Twin Towers caused in September 2001 and the verbal aggression it brought to the surface in the Circle. She guided us through these rough times.
In the following years I had telephonic sessions with Dottie. Unexpectedly for me she opened the first session with a prayer in which she asked Christ and the Guide to support and guide us. In that period I was still struggling with Christ. Dottie also invited me to have a look at my higher self, at those aspects that were mature and free to some degree. That helped me as I have and had a tendency to concentrate on my lower self.
In the Pathwork Circle she sometimes told about living and working in the rough neighboorhood in Minneapolis where she had her home. Where she chose to live and be an active citizen fighting crime. She videotaped lawbreakers and gave her energy to the cause of alleviating the burdens of drug abuse and prostitution. Dottie very consciously chose for helping the poor instead of making a lot of money with her therapeutic skills.
Dottie was a courageous and loving person. She is dearly missed.
