One of Virginia Satir’s greatest gifts to the world was the use of herself as an instrument of healing. By daring to use all of her-self-body, mind and spirit-the connections Virginia made with others were warm and real.

Able to put her own ego needs aside, Virginia modeled how to join common sense with a sense of high purpose.
