As a Facilitator, I am Committed to

  • Symposium Presenter
  • Symposium Host
  • Symposium Producer
  • Community Coordinator

I have played all out with the Pachamama Alliance. From becoming a facilitator to participating on a couple journeys to the Amazon, I am all in. I like to say the Pachamama Alliance experience has ruined my life.  I can no longer live like I used to. My life today is filled with meaning. If what I am doing does not contribute to the world in a better way then I am not interested. 

I am very active in the human potential movement. It has become clear to me that all the human problems in our world are symptons of a deep feeling, and that is the feeling of separation. People are hurt and feel cut off. The more separate a person feels the more painful life becomes. This pain causes people to search for power, property, money and prestige as a way to fill the void or they become filled with resignation and quit.

If one feels connected then all the power you will ever need to do great things will come effortlessly.  

My full time work today is helping people find connection in the world. As a Certified RIM Facilitator, I help people heal the traumas and events in their life that have created the blocs and limiting beliefs that cause separation. This is the most rewarding work I have ever done. Once a person has experienced the change, it then affects everyone they come into contact with. 



I've been a Facilitator since 2014. I have delivered 29 events with a total of 1305 attendees.

Why I'm a Pachamama Alliance Facilitator

As a young child in the 1960's I new the lifestyle we were living was hurting the environment that I so very much loved. It broke my heart to see the rise of the plastic industry, farmers becoming dependent on agromchemicals, and the manufactoring and consumption of processed foods. 

My assumption was how could one person possible make a difference. After attending my first syposium in San Francisco this assumption has changed. There is so much hope as I have learned that all great movements come from one person. I have hope for my children and their children. I am very excited about the world the Pachamama Alliance is creating and have found my place in this movement.  I have grown in my excitment and feel more significant then ever.

If I could change the world

Change people from consumers to global citizens. 

This is who inspires me

Lynne and Bill Twist. Their dedication and passion to making a difference in the world. They have shown me how one person can change the world. 

John Perkins for his courage and honesty. 

Experiences I'm proud of

The day I made the decision to follow my heart.  

What I'm passionate about

Teaching the world the truth about what is really going on followed by giving them hope for a better world. It seems to me that deep down in every person is a feeling that something is not right about the way we are living. They just need confirmation that they are not alone and that it is better for them and everyone if they learn to follow their heart.

The Pachamama Alliance is a great platform that is organized, based on the truth and brings people together. The people are passionate, nonjudgemental, supportive and positive.
