Dear Friends of the Centre,
Thank you so much for contributing to a fantastic year of growth and change at the Wellness Centre and Institute. As I write today, I feel so privileged and honored to be living on my land and operating the Centre. Of course, I am and have been grateful to be of service to the wonderful people I come into contact with each day. I have been inspired, awed and humbled by the magnificent souls that have touched me this year and all my life. Thank you for your teachings and wisdom!
Love is the healing balm that moves each of us forward in our lives, past the difficult, the heartbreaking, the unforeseen changes and life in general. As we dig deeper into our wells of Love, we learn to love and accept ourselves and this becomes our way of being in the world. The Path to Peace, let’s journey forward into another year of loving, being, letting go and feeling the thunder!
In the lyrics of Melissa Etheridge,
As God is God, as light is light whose law is wrong? Whose might is right? Here we are on the edge The edge of change I believe in peace, my only wish I believe that we can co-exist let’s go further now than we’ve ever gone before and ring the bells, ring the bells of change Ring the bells every boy and every girl Ring the bells, ring the bells of peace All over the world.
We’ve all been called to wake from sleep to feel our power to create the dream to step out from the dark past our fathers’ fear
Here we stand in unity making one choice to be free every truth blends into one as we believe it shall be done
Here we stand as soldiers now turning our swords into plows there is not a nobler climb achieving peace in our own time
I know peace begins with me with all I feel and with all I see and I know it’s no easy task removing our own fearful mask
But I have seen us rise and fall stand on the moon, tear down the wall and I know we can do it all and do it well, so ring the bells
Ring the bells.
