Hello Angela. Thank you very much for having me. I look forward to sharing the Akasha.
It’s a pleasure. Believe me. Let’s just start asking you. What’s your healing superpower?
Thanks. Well, I think that something that I’ve always tried to do, and I hope with some success and especially in my endeavors over in the Nepal Himalaya, is to bring people together to recognize that alone in solitary activities, we cannot fulfill our full potential. And so, although singular disciplines, spiritual, physical disciplines are important to me, and I think should be to everyone, we really cannot be fully ourselves unless we’re in community. So I hope the way that I have helped other people, is to introduce them to other communities and to help them feel like they’re a part of a greater community. And perhaps even that community of all humankind.
Wow. That sounds refreshing, for these worlds and this new life that we’re living, where everybody’s thinking about them, are fighting. Where families are being destroyed, where people are getting separated. I just love that there’s a project like yours that invites people to come together again that have tried. Will you please take us back to your early years, and name one memorable life lesson that is useful for you today.
