Beyond fearful images: a deeper dive to healing

Originally appeared on

Some years ago, I was in the Hawaiian Islands during the winter. I really wanted to get certified to scuba dive, so I signed up for a five-day course.

On the first day, each person in our group was required to take a swimming test. The waves in Hawaii in winter can get pretty big, and that day was no exception. It was hard to hear our instructor over the roar of the crashing water.

We'd love to hear from you!
