My name is Marla Hughes. I have worked with children my entire life. I have a Master’s degree in Exercise Physiology. I have worked in the pediatric transplant unit at UCSF Hospital in San Francisco, teaching children about exercise, good nutrition and relaxation. I also worked at the Center for Attitudinal Healing with its founder, Dr. Gerald Jampolsky, using art and music therapy to help young children who had life threatening diseases or who had a parent or loved one who was severely ill. My greatest teachers, however, have been my children. I have never experienced a love that deep or profound.
I created this podcast because I am intrigued by how children can help us reconnect with our spiritual selves. I believe the young are our teachers; after all they are the masters of living in the moment, enjoying the messiness of life and curious about the universe in all it's dimensions. They are not concerned with ego or comparisons. These young souls enter life with driblets of heaven clinging to them, still in touch with their memories of past lives and the people and places they had known before. I want to explore and share this wisdom.
