--Patrice Vecchione, author of Step into Nature: Nurturing Imagination and Spirit in Everyday Life
She invites us to wake up right where we are. To allow the knowingness to show up: there is no need to try to find it. It is organic, not a static view, just follow your heart, be still, and in the silence the struggle will settle to a realization of one's true nature. Just be. I felt the panic of my heart calm reading her words. Her poetics and insight from a long journey paid off.
