“Thank you so much for your gift of assisting me to go beyond my limited views of myself. Being in the helping profession, meditating and practicing energy work for many years I am very particular about who I work with and trust. You have been sensitive, observant, attentive and patient with me and I would refer anyone to you for healing and exploring the path to a more fulfilling life. You have a rare grasp of consciousness and how to use it creatively- bringing me back to essence and form, for creative positive manifestation.”

Vicki Sherman

“There is a deep longing among people… to connect with something bigger — with community and spirit.”

“Тhe gentle overcomes the rigid.
The slow overcomes the fast.
The weak overcomes the strong.”

“Everyone knows that the yielding overcomes the stiff,
and the soft overcomes the hard.
Yet [few] apply this knowledge.”

― Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching

“In times of change, learners inherit the Earth,

“We are a continuum. Just as we reach back to our ancestors for our fundamental values, so we, as guardians of that legacy, must reach ahead to our children and their children. And we do so with a sense of sacredness in that reaching.”
