The King’s Speech

You must see this film.

Period.

Years ago, I met Jung on lower Broadway in NYC.  Not actually, of course. What I mean is that the concept of syncronicity rose up and hit me in the face that day.  Details are not very important.  What is important is that I had to acknowledge that things sometimes conspire to connect you to a larger truth, for which you may not even be aware you are searching.

Having seen The King’s Speech this week, I am struck by the relational and reflective aspect of the practice of speech therapy – the very thing we are now exploring in a deeper and more meaningful way.  The character of Lionel Logue, played adeptly by Geoffrey Rush, succeeds with The King only because he establishes the relationship that forms a bond of trust and respect between them.  And so it is in our therapy as well. 

I am so happy to find a film like this that supports my own personal journey, and confirms what I know to be true.
