Jane Waterman

writer, artist, adaptive yoga teacher - chronically ill and probably crazy

Welcome! Over the coming months, this website will begin the transformation to become the online hub of all my work, including writing, art, and adaptive yoga. I’ve struggled to bring this together because it’s vulnerable, scary, and sometimes painful as someone who’s been chronically ill and probably crazy for over 30 years! However, I believe we can only heal if we accept our selves and change our story with love, compassion and authenticity. It’s only then that we can truly share healing with others.

If you’d like to help me change the story after you’ve spent some time here, please head over to visit my Patreon. You can support my work for as little as $2 a month. Thank you!

With love,

Words are flowing

Sometimes, the words are a river. Their ferocity and intensity threaten to carry me away, to wash away the last connection with land and safety and security. What is that security? It is the place where words were mocked and ridiculed and
