I am blessed to be gifted with the wisdom streams that have fed me and supported my growth on the journey, and with other sincere Seekers and servers of Life with whom I have paddled along the river. May we all do the work we are here to do, and support others in theirs. These allies are listed not in order of importance, but as a circle of support, connection and in some cases, purely as inspiration.
“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
