Interview about HDYP? at current NYSpirit.com

A lovely interview with me about How Do You Pray? along with several short excerpts from the book appears in the current online issue of NYSpirit. Here’s a fun excerpt from the interview, my response to the question, “How would you summarize your experience?” How Do You Pray? is a vision, a book and an evolutionary driver.

As we get in touch with ourselves, we realize the veils are thin between each other. As we accept our own condition we can better accept that of others.

We are inspired by our ancient wisdom as we move together into the future. We are the bridge, one with instinct and intuition, grace and gratitude, heaven and...

As this framework disintegrates, we are finding our voices, reaching out and offering each other a...

Anointing inspires ceremonies, rites of passage, rituals, and transitions such as birth and...
