I am seeking a way into the world to see what I have been afraid to look deeply into. I am tender for the suffering I have witnessed in my life. I have taught yoga and been a nurse for over 30 years. I am the Peace Minister for our spiritual center in Redding, CA, USA. I also have the privilege to oversee our women's group, the Sacred Sisters, at the center. I want to bring your voices into our sharing and bridge our understanding to global lifestyles and share with the ways to find resolution and understanding and healing. I find your stories rich with heart and courage and passion. I am committed to share the responsibility in seeking a higher understanding of what is and hold it with love. In the smallness of myself, I am disappointed in my body that holds pain and disappoint myself daily in not living up to my full potential spiritually and physically. Then I read the stories and expand out of my "pity me woe is me" and recognize how powerful we each are in putting our voices, our hearts, our intentions into a greater vision for the world. I am grateful for the opportunity to share in your heartfelt stories and in the prayers of peace that flow unceasingly.
