If I could change the world

i would wake everyone up to how we are all connected, with each other and with the rest of Nature

This is who inspires me

My life was profoundly changed by studying and experiencing being with Joanna Macy.   This amazing woman has under her belt many decades of ecoological activism, her "The Work That Reconnects" workshops and her wide-ranging books.

She continues to teach (see schedule at www.joannamacy.net) and supporters have now opened the Joanna Macy Center in Boulder, CO

Experiences I'm proud of

Being an assistant cook at the Ojai Foundation during a Joanna Macy/Awakening the Dreamer facilitator training Oct 2010. It was an important time when I rediscovered a way of life that fulfills me.  I have done "bigger" things in my life but I am proud I took that step into a way of life that something inside me was seeking.  Although I had read Joanna Macy years ago, this was when I met her.
