The present moment calls for humans to reawaken to the possibilities of renewed relationships with one another, animals, and the earth. This calls for wisdom, deep honesty, compassion, and courage. I believe we can and must do this, for the sake of our children and generations to come.

The current unprecedented environmental and societal challenges inform the actions that one must take. If we advance confidently in the direction of our dreams, and endeavor to live the life we imagine for ourselves and our children, we will work day and night to make sure that our planet is a better place to live.

Rooted ways of knowing and being are at the core of my calling to grief work. Through my own healing journey and the gifts of many wisdom traditions and teachers, I find hope for a resilient future that centers wholehearted Beings and the diverse ecosystems that nourish them.
