    So nice to be back in the presence of your energy and powerful insight, Pat. While you only speak for yourself, as you said, your words seem trans-generational, trans-tribal, and incredibly transformative. Thank you.

    Thank you Pat, such a joy to hear your inspiring, down to earth words of wisdom.

  • Margaret Babcock

    What a deeply inspiring talk! I feel honored to have been introduced through this forum and intend to add your wisdom into my morning practice, beginning tomorrow. Deep thanks from another Grandmother, with much love.

  • Martina De Rosi

    Thank you for making my morning glorious , too. From one part of the world to another (I am sitting in Italy and just now also looking out on a white landscape with new snow) I could truly feel the harmoniuos song of beauty in your words. Very precious.

  • Betül Ka

    Thank you Pat. Such an inspiring talk and a beautiful beautiful song you shared. Its deeply touched me.

  • Melanie Rottmann

    Thank you so much Pat, I really enjoyed your honest words and made me think a lot about where my own and I guess most westernized communities sources of ‘knowledge’ come from.

  • Thank you so much for opening up your heart. It resonated with me in so many ways. I too struggle with isolating myself and judged myself harshly for this lack of being in community comfortably. The part about your ancestors experience with genocide also resonated with me. My family comes from eastern European Jewish descent. The Jewish people have been persecuted for hundreds of years. As Pat said, colonialism occurred all over the world. Your honesty and authenticity touches so many of us. Thank you again
