Pulling Up Stakes: Stepping Into Freedom By Harriet Kimble Wrye
Meet & Greet
Tuesday, August 21
Atop Mt. Kilimanjaro, psychologist Harriet Wrye felt a millennial call to “pull op stakes” in her life, as she did with tent and llama stakes each day whenever she and her husband backpacked in the high Sierras with the llamas. Inspired, she closed her Los Angeles psychoanalytic practice of thirty years, they leased their house at the beach and set out on an odyssey into the “back of beyond.”
Creating a sabbatical away from the familiar, her journey became a life-changing pilgrimage that led to a deep practice of letting go of assumption, habits and patterns, and stepping into freedom.
HARRIET KIMBLE WRYE, Ph.D. is a training and Supervising Psychoanalyst Emerita at the Los Angeles Institue and Society for Psychoanalytic Studies. She has been ordained by Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh as a Member of the Order of Interbeing.
