Healing For The Ourselves, the Whole, and the World

Awareness is rising now – We are hearing the call to heal the Whole of Us. A new way of being is emerging. We are stepping forward. With us come our ancestors, future generations, and Mother Earth. Now is the time to gather and act.

This is a Sacred Journey of Healing. We stop, listen, and feel – with our feet on the ground – we hear the piercing call. We witness the need. We are calling all the others who witness and feel this need. Come be with us. We walk together toward balance, in kindness and conscience, one human family.
