My life experience continues to be a personal healing journey of
self knowledge, gained by participating in and or observing all
facets of my own life story. I seek the meaning of life by giving
my own life meaning. Originally a liberal arts student in the 1980's,
I gravitated toward science (i.e., the genetics of small captive
societies) during my years of academic study and increasingly
became aware, and an advocate, of the interconnectedness of
all living things.
This understanding was refined through the years with the help of a holistic medical doctor who introduced me to his world of alternative, nontraditional medicine, beginning with ortho molecular medicine and vitamin therapy, and culminating, among other things, with acupuncture, homeopathy, intuitive healing, radionics, psychic healing, shamanistic healing, herbs, essences, and Chi Gong.
Like Diogenes searching the world for an honest man, I searched traditional and nontraditional medicine for healing. My journey made me increasingly aware that all human societies, throughout the Ages, in each era or geographic location, recognize healers, regardless of the nature of the treatments offered, who communicate with life force energy, external to the individual but at the same time resident within the self.
My realization that balance between these forms of life force energies is key to well-being led me to study and gain experience in radionics, homeopathy, iridology, and meditation; as a Reiki Master Teacher, a certified Jin Shin Jyutsu® practitioner and self-help instructor, and as a student of Tibetan Yoga teacher training; and in Chi Gong, the healing properties of herbs, flower and gem essences, healing crystals and gems, and quantum healing.
After a 20 year hiatus from writing poetry, Wendy E. Slater has
composed 20 volumes of spiritual poetry which began during a
vision quest to Scotland in 2001. Much of Wendy E. Slater’s
poetry was written during vision quests, spiritual awakenings,
and the dark night of the soul, and this is why she refers to her
poetry series as “vision quest poetry”, shamanic poetry, or
spiritual poetry. Into the Hearth, Poems – Volume 14 preceded
the release of her latest, Of the Flame, Poems – Volume 15.
Wendy E. Slater lives in Vermont.
