Team Member

Coming from a long line of (indigenous) bones, to paraphrase Libby Roderick, there is something innate and inherent about seeing and seeking harmony upon this Earth life. Some call that Original Wisdom; some our True and Spiritual Nature. What I bring to One Earth One People Peace Vision is this understanding, and vision for ultimate well-being. As Qigong (chi kung) instructor, and practitioner of healing arts, each day is a prayer of connection. a deeper realization of this turning time. a hope for today, and tomorrow for wholeness, and sacred knowing. 🙏 May we meet there.
