About Me an inter-spiritual lover of life and kindness. I am grateful for contemplative teachings and practices, my spiritual community and friends, lover of art and creative process, learning and loving, sharing and teaching. Have to stop and pet dogs, and love to see animals in nature, free and happy. Passionate for equality and justice since an early age, and wanting to inspire the younger generations with the same.
