Roots. My family moved from Baltimore to the Bay Area when I was 14, and I’ve lived most of my life in the East Bay since then. The Girl Scouts introduced me to camping and I still love hiking in the East Bay Regional Parks. I’ve studied and taught many mind-body practices, including Qi Gong, Tai Chi, energy-based bodywork, and currently Kundalini Yoga.
What got me going in conservation. As a student at the University of Creation Spirituality, I was surprised to hear Matthew Fox say: “Make no mistake about it, the most urgent issue of our time is the environment.” Studying the New Cosmology enabled me to see and feel that everything in the Universe is connected. I became a facilitator of the Pachamama Alliance’s Awakening the Dreamer, Changing the Dream symposium. A journey to the rainforest in Ecuador solidified my commitment to action on behalf of our planet.
How I met Green Sangha. Attending the Environmental Forum of Marin’s 18-week Master Class, I teamed up with some classmates to start the Marin Food Scrap Recycling Task Force. Our work in the Zero Waste movement made me aware of Green Sangha’s Rethinking Plastics campaign, and when I moved back to the East Bay I joined the local chapter.
What I like about Green Sangha. Inspiring Awakened Action! Being part of a community of citizen activists dedicated to restoring our sense of oneness.
What’s got me excited. I’m very keen on Mindful Activism Training and the Low Carbon Diet groups. I also hope to expand Green Sangha’s membership base.
