I am forever grateful for my teachers and sages, Kia Miller, Sam Sohmer, Tom Voitas, Kait Kozak, Amy Weintraub, and Jen Beer, among many other wise ones, for bringing me along on my winding journey of self realization and growth. They model to me what is possible and compel me to share my learning with others.
