A Zen archer's philosophy hits the mark.
When I was a child, I suffered with a chronic stuttering problem that persisted well into early adulthood. Then I came to California and immersed myself in the culture of personal growth and human potential. The result was that I completely recovered from a problem that usually lasts a lifetime.
In the late 70's I brought my hard-won knowledge to a new non-profit organization just starting up in San Francisco. In my over 20 years with the National Stuttering Association (NSA), I have served as the pro bono associate director, as a board member, and currently, as editor of their monthly newsletter. I have also published in various professional journals.
This piece, which looks at chronic stuttering from a non-traditional perspective, appeared in the Journal of Fluency Disorders, a leading professional journal.
