I am a lover of Nature, a lover of God, striving to practice that Presence and wake up to it in every soul and in every particle, plant, mineral, animal - all around me. I am especially enthralled by miracles worked by love. Prayer and meditation is central to my daily life.
I am graced with a very happy, healthy and rewarding marriage, an amazing son, and loving, honest friends who share my spiritual longing and commitment to service. I work at a silent, contemplative retreat and am a seasoned massage therapist (part-time). I love music, art, singing, dancing, laughing, hiking, animals, mountains, oceans, clouds, sunshine, flowers and rain... and silence. I can get lost for hours reading and writing, or discussing life and its hard and glorious lessons, or exploring quantum physics through the lens of the science of religion, Yoga. I strongly recommend the Autobiography of a Yogi; The Second Coming of Christ - Resurrection of the Christ Within You; and, God Talks With Arjuna - A Commentary on the Bhagavad Gita, all by Paramahansa Yogananda.
I like the thought that airbnb is perhaps reviving an old tradition of wayfarers being taken in by local people, nourished and sheltered and then sent on their way again. Carries the potential for such kindness and cultural exchange, and perhaps in the US could help to cultivate sincere hospitality, which I think has waned in recent generations. I love to treat people as they deserve, with respect and genuine welcoming warmth. It is a privilege to be given shelter in another person's home.
