Inspirations, Teachers, Mentors

I have a vision — to create a global village by supporting myself, each human being that I work with, and the greater community; to begin a process of understanding and remembering that each of us belongs here. I envision that, like the trees, the plants and the animals who are born knowing innately what they are here for and how they fit in, we too, have just as much innate being-ness. It’s in the loss of our connection to ourselves, our village and our planet that we may feel alone, depressed, isolated, irrelevant, numb, destructive, confused, suicidal, shamed, anxious and so many other potentials.

The way of the village has come to me through the teachings of many. I have been inspired by Toko-pa Turner, Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Thich Nach Hahn, Sobonfu Somé, Malidoma Patrice Somé, Dr. Richard Schwartz, Martin Prechtel, Francis Weller, Keith Wilson, John Mace and so many more.
