And I wish to take the opportunity to acknowledge those who inspire and guide me; nurturing my growth and encouraging me to step fully into myself and Christine Grace and Community:
Ally Campbell, a gifted creative artist who is beautifully enveloping my words with softness and colour.
Ufuk Önen, a patient and skilled audio engineer who is capturing my voice so that I can further share my meditations and offerings with the world.
Judith Onley, who keeps my feet on the ground while I reach for the stars.
And my dear family and friends who continue to be there for me through it all. Love you more xo.
And those with whom I am forever grateful to have crossed paths with:
Dharshika Watson, who capably provided administrative support as we embarked on our journey.
Peter Andruski, who steadfastly led the initial web site build.
Leah Solomaa, who discovered my soprano voice and welcomed me into a circle of song.
Kelly Galbraith, who encouraged me to reach for the high notes.
My teachers and mentors in Mindfulness: Kristen Neff, Christopher Germer, Dawn MacDonald, Steve Hickman, Michelle Becker, Patricia Rockman, David Denis, Evan Collins, Zindel Segal, and Mental Health: Marianne Farkas, William Anthony, Sue McNamara, and Jenny Carver.
Cheryl Richardson, a life coach and author, whose presentations, teachings and writings encourage extreme self care.
As well as J.J. O’Hara, a business entrepreneur who offered me guidance and inspiration.
With heartfelt appreciation,
