I was raised on a farm in southern Ontario with my parents and three sisters. I have passionate and lasting memories of this upbringing. Our family farms forests, open fields, and backyard marsh was my playground. I spent my days on adventure walks with my grandfather, climbed trees and built forest forts with my sister. The farm animals were our playmates. I lost time in the marsh speaking to my imaginary forest friends, searching for frogs, snakes and creatures of the like. This home setting is the foundation from which I contribute my great love and connection with mother-earth and animals.
We are all an extension of mother-earth. We ebb and flow with her… her health and well-being is directly connected to our health and well-being. We simply would not, could not exist without her. I strongly believe a vast number of us are disconnected from ourselves. We are trapped in a cycle of doing, spinning, chasing our proverbial tails. We simple do, to exist and acquire. We are dissatisfied, frustrated and sad, many depressed. We experience sickness because of this dis-ease and disconnection of Self.
