“I love working with people who are suffering from illness and pain (I know that might sound strange) but it is real-er than real as both the patients (and I) negotiate fear, anger, and confusion. Working with the patients in the medical setting points me towards what is truly useful in yoga/ somatic integration/ meditation/communication – I find I am paring things down into their simpler, clearer, and cleaner expressions both in action and in words, striving to make the teachings accessible to people of all backgrounds and belief systems. It has been such a gift.
In that, I want to thank you for your teaching, guidance and friendship – there isn’t a day that passes that I don’t think of you, hear your voice in my head, wish you well and feel a deep gratitude for your presence in my life.”
