And I wish to take the opportunity to acknowledge the many others who inspire and guide me along the way; nurturing my growth and encouraging me to step fully into myself and Christine Grace and Community:
Judith Onley, who keeps my feet on the ground while I reach for the stars.
Kelly Galbraith, who encourages me to reach for the high notes.
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.
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, whose presentations, teachings and writings promote extreme self care.
As well as J.J. O’Hara, a business entrepreneur who offers me guidance and inspiration.
And my dear family and friends who continue to be there for me through it all.
Love you more xo.
