Powers, Lessons & Gifts from My Teachers

I have so many people to thank for the teachings they provided. I don’t mention anyone out of my own self-importance in having worked with them in some capacity, though there is definitely deep gratitude and a little pride for having had the opportunity. Rather, I do so to share a reflection both of the things I’ve needed to learn on my own journey and as a loving tribute to those who were able to provide me the chance. Thus, here is my “lineage”:
