“Because we are members of the same human family, we are connected, and I feel we have responsibility and accountability to and for one another. We have been indoctrinated with fear-based belief systems through the ages and taught separation and division, judgment and hatred. My journey has taught another way of viewing life…another way of thinking…another way of ‘being’ on this earth. It is a way of living together, in harmony, and with respect for all life. It is the indigenous way of living with Mother Earth.

Humanity stands at a critical crossroads and the outcome will be determined by the choices we make as individuals and as a human collective.  We each hold an important piece of this grand puzzle of life. In order to evolve into a higher state of consciousness and claim our seat in the sacred circle, we must face the emotional wounds we carry and heal them.”

The pain of one is the pain of all and the honor of one is the honor of all,

because We Are All Related.
