    Integrating Body, Mind, Heart & Soul

    Through courageous vulnerability, visionary intuition and full presence toward a more mindful, healthier world.



    My eyes already touch the sunny hill.

    going far beyond the road I have begun,

    So we are grasped by what we cannot grasp;

    it has an inner light, even from a distance-
    and changes us, even if we do not reach it,

    into something else, which, hardly sensing it, we already are;

    a gesture waves us on answering our own wave…

    but what we feel is the wind in our faces.
