Personal Statement

This is a practice that was started with my mother, sister and myself in 1991. We set out to bring as many disenfranchised people as we could one by one from the trenches of their pain. We believe in gaining insight into our mind, body and spirit. It is a dance that can take a bit of time. We create relationship. We encourage and support healing from the inside out so that you may go and change your world not find a way to fit it.
