We must choose our teachers, even in the most unlikely places.


One of the first things I do each time I try to reimagine myself as a a blogger, is to create a resource page. There is something ingrained in me that needs to explain why I do the things I do. Call it unhealthy patterning, call it an act of humility, call it what you will. All I know is that I love to share information and resources and this is the best way I know how. 

So to begin this adventure, I wanted to offer a sampling of those people whom I have chosen as teachers in my life so far and to offer them thanks here. Some, quite literally have taught me. Others, I have learned from their writings, recordings, or creations. 

Pour yourself a brimming mug of tea and peruse at your leisure through my treasured list of frequently revisited sources of inspiration. This is a mere peek, and so much more can really be said, but please enjoy. Take what you will and discard what does not fit.
